17-Year-Old Girl Who Is The Mastermind Of Blue Whale Suicide Game Is Arrested

A 17-year-old girl has reportedly been arrested on the suspicion of being the ‘global mastermind’ behind the internet suicide craze, Blue Whale.

Police are said to have detained the teen, who is allegedly behind the group which has influenced a number of young vulnerable teens to take their own lives.

The Russian teenager – who remains unnamed for legal reasons – reportedly issued threats of murder to her victims and their family members if they ‘failed to obey orders’ to complete the tasks which involved acts of self-harm.

According to the Mirror, 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.”

Blue Whale is a game which provides victims with 50 tasks in 50 days and it encourages vulnerable young people to play along with the dangerous online challenges, which evoke suicide. In the police video, the girl appears to be barefoot as officers investigating search her flat.

A 21-year-old man has also been arrested – near Moscow – accused of provoking young girls to take their own lives.

Earlier this year, a grieving father who lost his son to the sickening ‘suicide game’ warned parents about online safety.

A young teen from Ireland is believed to have also taken part in the Blue Whale Challenge. The boy’s father found his son’s body in a field near his home and the Father was convinced the online game led to the tragedy.

The game is said to be designed by 21-year-old Russian, Philipp Budeikin, and is allegedly named Blue Whale after the phenomenon of blue whales beaching themselves and dying.

It’s not known if he’s the man who has recently been arrested near Moscow.

Whatever happens, hopefully, this will be the end of the Blue Whale craze.

Last year, Novaya Gazeta reported:

We have counted 130 suicides of children that took place during November 2015 to April 2016. Almost all these children were members of the same internet groups and lived in good, happy families.

We know absolutely for sure is that adults are working with children, with the help of knowledge of their habits and passions, using their favourite language and culture.

They know psychology well, they convince girls that they are ‘fat’, tell boys that they are ‘losers’ in this world. And that there is another world and they will be among the chosen.”

Blue Whale provokes suicidal thoughts into the minds of young people with pictures of an approaching train captioned, “This world is not for us’ and photographs of teens on a roof, claiming ‘We are children of the dead generation’ 

The game also urges teens to watch horror movies all day, and to wake themselves at 4.20 am, all steps leading up to demands to take their own lives on the 50th day being in the game.
