New homeowner finds creepy doll behind wall with note about the murder of former residents

Jonathan Lewis recently moved into a new home in Liverpool, England and became curious about a wire emerging from a boarded-up section of wall. He cut a hole in the wall and discovered a ragdoll holding a rather creepy note.

From Coast to Coast:

The spooky note began by thanking the reader for "freeing me" and went on to reveal that "my name is Emily. My original owners lived in this house in 1961." The weird missive then took a chilling turn as 'Emily' explained that "I didn't like them so they had to go. 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." After that chilling 'confession,' the message concludes with a presumably sarcastic "hope you sleep well." As one might imagine, Lewis was initially put off by the ominous note, but he later determined that he was likely on the receiving end of an elaborate prank.

Upon checking with his realtor and some of his new neighbors, Lewis learned that the area of the house where the doll had been discovered was only renovated four or five years ago.

Likely, Lewis was the target of a longterm prank played by the previous homeowners. Hopefully, anyway.
