Annabelle was the focus of a case that famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren took part in during the early 1970’s and is highlighted in the book The Demonologist. It has been stated that this is one of the most unusual cases of a possessed object on record.
This is Annabelle’s story:
In 1970 a mother, doting on her only daughter, purchased a Raggedy Ann doll from an antique store. The cute red-headed little doll was a present for her daughter Donna. Donna was , at that time, currently residing with her roommate Angie in a small apartment and preparing to graduate from college. Thinking nothing more of the doll than a sign of gratitude and affection from her mother she placed the doll on her bed in her room and basically forgot about it.
As time passed both Angie and Donna noticed an air of strangeness about the doll. Apparently, the doll would move, relatively unnoticeable movements at first, like a change in position, but as time passed the movement became more noticeable. The doll was even once found standing upright, leaning against a chair with its legs crossed. After awhile the doll was said to have actually changed rooms! It would be left in the living room before Donna left for work and upon returning it would be found on her bed, in her room. A moving doll? Very strange indeed.
