Debbie Merrick bought a trio of antique dolls from a second hand shop in July 2017. All the dolls seemed fine except for one. The doll has reportedly scratched Debbie’s husband Cameron. After putting the doll in a spare room, Cameron woke up to scratches on his leg, and Debbie had nightmares about the doll crawling toward her. The Merricks also believed that the doll would cause the smoke alarms to go off in the middle of the night. Debbie has also heard the floorboards creaking in the night, when thinking her daughter was the one, she was surprised to find her daughter sleeping. Supposedly a friend told the family that something was in the doll, and the family put her in a box in the shed. The odd thing is that the doll moved position inside the box, and removed its necklace. The family’s story was featured on a morning talk show called This Morning. During the show when Debbie explained that she had bought the doll for 5 pounds, the doll started to rock in a chair. Since then Debbie has sold the doll to a paranormal researcher.
