This is the second image made of Slender Man created by an artist other than the original creator. It's one of two posted on the Something Awful forums on June 12, 2009, by user LeechCode5 as part of a contest to manufacture fake 'paranormal' photographs, and in response to the images posted on an earlier date by user Victor Surge. The following is the text of the "backstory" presented with the picture in the forum:

I've been seriously debating sharing these, but after Victor Surge's posts I feel I have to.


The second photo is of an elementary school fire in 1978. No official cause was ever found. Seven students and a teacher became trapped and died before firefighters could respond. Many of the students and teachers from the time have a history of anxiety disorders and panic attacks, even those who weren't at the school on that day. At least one has since committed suicide, and several others legally changed their names once they reached adulthood and have disappeared.
