For a year and a half, whenever anyone asked, I told them that this doll wasn’t “haunted” in the traditional sense of a spirit attachment, but that there was a spirit “trapped in,” or “tethered to,” the doll. Not that I knew what that meant or how it happened.
When I watched the psychic medium on the Ghost Adventures episode say that there were 5 spirits in the doll, I disagreed. I only knew of one. Then, because of evidence that corroborated what she said on the show, I too, began to believe that there were, in fact, 5 spirits in the doll.
In time, I came to understand that 4 of the spirits were trapped, and one of them was their “jailer.” I wondered, other than being malevolent, powerful, sinister, and manipulative, what was the nature of that particular one? Was it human at one time? A demon, as many have suggested? A djinn?
Last night, with the help of my friend Chris, I conducted an investigation of the doll using a REM-POD, an Olympus digital recorder, a SB7 spirit box, and an Ovilus 4. Beforehand, when I thought about my objective for the investigation, I decided I hoped to learn the nature of the spirits, and what being “trapped” meant. How did it work?
To give you an idea as to what happened, the REM-POD which was being activated constantly through out the day, was silent for most of the investigation. The digital recorder captured few, if any EVPs (I’ve yet to listen to the entire recording). Very little came out of the spirit box, except Chris believed he heard his name called out. The Ovilus, normally a chatterbox on “Dictionary” mode was also silent for the most part, an on the “Phonetic” mode, we heard what sounded like “stop” each time I asked what it wanted.
Towards the end, I verbally warned the spirit who seemed to be keeping the other 4 captive that I would find the answers I was looking for, and it knew I would. The truth was that afterwards, I was exhausted, and discouraged.
Then today, January 24th, 2015, I received the following message from Larry –
