Authorities Warn About Disturbing ‘Momo Game’ on WhatsApp After 12-Year-Old’s Suicide

Police around the world are warning people against a WhatsApp game with an avatar believed to be from Japan after Argentinian authorities linked the messaging craze to the suicide of a 12-year-old girl.

Buenos Aires police are trying to determine whether the creepy “Momo Game” might have motivated the girl, who was found hanging from a tree on her family’s backyard in Ingeniero Maschwitz, Argentina, to commit suicide on July 22, according to Buenos Aires Times.
