In a very exciting accident, a homeowner was shocked when he discovered a doll, in one of the walls of his new home, bearing a sheet of paper with a chilling message written on it, according to what the British website Daily Mail reported.
Jonathan Lewis, 32, picked up the keys to his new home in Walton-on-the-Hill last Friday, deciding to check one of the empty spaces in the kitchen.
The wall that held the doll
The elementary school teacher took a mallet to check the wall to find a cloth doll, in a striped dress and hood, clutching a piece of paper with a horrifying message that was said to have stabbed the original owners of the property in 1961, closing the letter with “I hope you sleep well.”
The doll inside the wall
But the broker told Lewis that the kitchen was only built “four or five years ago” and said the previous owners must have put the letter in that time frame, saying it was laughable.
The text of the message carried by the doll
The text of the message read: “Dear reader/new homeowner, thank you for editing me! My name is Emily, my original owners were living in this house in 1961, I didn’t like them so they had to go.
All they did was sing and have fun. It was disgusting to me, stabbing and dying was my choice for them, so I hope you have knives.. I hope you sleep well.”
The intended doll
“I just bought the house and got the keys on Friday,” said Lewis. “There was a wire coming out of the fridge, but I didn’t know where to connect the wire so I punched a fist-sized hole and flashed a light to locate the wire and found the doll sitting inside.”
“My friends advised me to sell the house again, but I think it’s just a joke, especially since the paper looks really modern.”
