Dan on Nightline: December 18, 2014

Dan anchored for Nightline on Thursday, December 18th for his last time as co-anchor. The episode began with a look at the latest developments in the “slender man” trial. Two 12 year-old girls from Wisconsin are accused of luring their friend into the woods and then stabbing her 19 times, all to impress a character they learned about on the internet called the “slender man”. Both girls were claiming they were unfit to stand trial but a new ruling by a Wisconsin judge stated both girls were competent to stand trial and be tried as adults. In the next segment ABC’s Robin Roberts sits down with Oprah to discuss her new movie “Selma”and in the last piece ABC’s Linsey Davis takes us inside a chocolate factory for something sweet.
