ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD A 17-YEAR-OLD GIRL HAS BEEN EXPOSED AS THE ALLEGED MASTERMIND BEHIND THE BLUE WHALE SUICIDE GAME.
The teenager is accused of being behind the sick craze which has encouraged dozens of vulnerable children to take their own lives. The unnamed Russian girl, who has now been arrested, issued threats to her victims to murder them or their family members if they failed to obey orders to complete tasks she set them.
According to Russian state investigators, the female ‘death group administrator’ played the game originally, but did not end up taking her life, instead, she became an ‘admin’ on the deadly site, to help spread the deadly virus amongst the people.
A 21-year-old man was also arrested near Moscow and has been accused of inciting young girls to take their own lives. Colonel Irina Volk, of the Russian Interior Ministry, said: ‘This administrator was sending particular tasks – often life-threatening – to each of several dozen members of the group.
‘In contrast to similar groups, teenagers in this group were blackmailed with death threats against them or their relatives for not completing the tasks.’ She would allegedly set victims 50 tasks in 50 days aimed at ‘creating psychologically traumatizing situations’, with the final stage demanding that the victim commits suicide.
This included encouraging them to watch horror movies, waking in the middle of the night, and self-harming. The 17-year-old suspect was arrested in the Khabarovsk Krai region in southeastern Russia.
