This guy bought a house, and then found a creepy doll with a disturbing note hidden in the wall — and NOPE!!
You can just burn it down. Burn the whole house down right now. I don’t need an Amityville Horror House up in here!!
The house in question is in Walton, which is part of Liverpool, London. (I’m thanking God that it’s 3,700 miles away from me!)
When Jonathan Lewis was fixing up his new house, he noticed a hole under the stairs. It sparked his curiosity.
I’m going to go on record as saying that if I noticed a creepy hole under the stairs, a bunch of red flags would have immediately shot up. I don’t think I’d want to know what was behind there. I’d seal up the hole and call it a day.
But, not Jonathan Lewis. He wanted to know what was back there, so he started to pull back the plaster board.
There was a wire coming out where the previous owners had the fridge but I didn’t know where the wire was plugged in so I knocked through a bit of the plasterboard to see what was thereLiverpool Echo
Once he pulled it back, he found a creepy-ass doll. That is the point that I would have immediately moved out. Nothing good can come from a doll trapped and hidden inside a wall.
There wasn’t JUST a doll. The ragdoll was holding a note, and being the curious person that Jonathan was, he opened the note and read it.
“Dear reader/ new home owner, Thank you for freeing me!” the note started. Okay, not so bad so far. Maybe this was a cute little treasure left behind by the previous owner.
“My name is Emily. My original owners lived in this house in 1961. I didn’t like them so they had to go.”
I’m sorry. What? What happened to the owners?
“All they did was sing and be merry. It was sickening. Stabbing was my choice of death for them so I hope you have knives.” OH HELL NO! Nope, Nope, Nope. Just burn it. Burn the doll, burn the note.
The note didn’t stop there. The devil doll had to politely end the note, right?
“Hope you sleep well.”
I would have been at a hotel, far away from that house, so quickly. I wouldn’t even take the time to pack my bags.
Is there a statute of limitations on buying a house? Can you change your mind and get your money back? Because that’s what I would be doing!
Although Jonathan’s friends are urging him to sell the house and get out (I don’t blame them), he thinks the note is rather funny.
Some of my friends have told me to put my house back on the market and move out but I think it’s just a laugh. The letter says 1961 but the estate agent said when she was showing me around that the kitchen was only done four or five years ago. I think it must have been put there then because the paper doesn’t look very old and looks relatively recent.Liverpool Echo
What do you think? Are you team “hilarious” or team “spooky”?
