Man finds creepy doll boarded up under stairs

What's hiding under your staircase ? Image Credit:
A primary school teacher in Liverpool, England found something decidedly creepy hidden in his new home.
When 32-year-old Jonathan Lewis moved into his new house recently, one of the first things he did was remove the plasterboard that a previous owner had used to cover up the space beneath the stairs.

"There was a wire coming out where the previous owners had the fridge but I didn't know where the wire was plugged in so I knocked through a bit of the plasterboard to see what was there," he said.

Instead of finding wires, however, he was shocked to discover an old rag doll sitting inside the space wearing a pinstripe dress and clutching a small piece of paper.

"Dear reader/ new home owner, thank you for freeing me!" the note read.

"My name is Emily. My original owners lived in this house in 1961. 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. Hope you sleep well."

After a little bit of digging, however, it became apparent that the doll was not what it seemed.

According to the estate agent, the kitchen had only been fitted a mere five years ago, meaning that the doll had most likely been placed there as a joke by the previous owners.

"I'll be honest, I found the whole thing hilarious," said Lewis. "I'd probably do the exact same thing."
