Annabelle the Possessed Doll

Famous investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren took on the case of Annabelle the Haunted Doll in the early 1970s. The antique doll had been bought as a present by her a mother for her daughter, Donna in 1970. Donna was a student at the time, training to be a nurses. She lived in a small apartment with her friend, Angie.

The Doll took pride of place on her bed. And then—you guessed it—weird stuff started happening. The Doll seemingly had the ability to move about on its own. Sometimes the girls would come home to find the doll in a different room from where they had left her; even finding her sat crossed legged on the couch with its arms folded.

Some time after this the girls would come home to find hand-written notes written in a crude child’s writing. The message read: ‘Help Us’. Who was writing the notes? And where was the old-looking parchment the messages were written on coming from? But the girls couldn’t analyze for too long because within a few days more strange occurrences happened, namely blood started to appear on the doll, from nowhere.

The girls called for a séance, where they were acquainted with a spirit girl called Annabelle Higgins—a seven year girl who had been found murdered on the plot of land the apartment the girls lived in was built on.Annabelle ‘moved’ into the doll so she could have some female company and once they heard Annabelle’s story the girls agreed that that spirit could stay in the doll and in the apartment… A bad decision—for one of their close friends at least, Lou. Lou had told the girls over and over again to ditch the doll and the dislike was clearly a two-way street. One evening when Lou was in Angie’s bedroom he was attacked by an unseen force.

The attack left him with seven claw marks on his chest. Enter, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.After looking into the case, Ed and Lorraine Warren concluded that the doll was not possessed by a spirit girl but by a malevolent spirit who wanted to eventually posses a human host. According to the Warrens, the ‘demonic spirit’ had manipulated and preyed on the girls’ emotional weaknesses, currying favor with them and lying in wait, until eventually it would have tried to possess them. The Warrens removed Annabelle from the apartment and to this day it remains in the Warren Occult Museum in Moodus, Connecticut. Annabelle still moves around on the odd occasion and, it is said, even growls at visitors.
