A friend of mine found this [blog post] and forwarded it to me. You may remember me. I acquired “Harold” from Kathy, winning him on eBay. This was at least 5 years ago, and I, in fact, still have him to this day.
As a matter of fact, I just had a psychic do a reading on him just this afternoon. This wasn’t the first reading I’ve done on him. In fact I’ve had a few done. But more on that in a bit.
When I first saw Harold up for auction, I wanted him because of the stories Kathy told me about her experiences with him. There were a few other factors, but I’m not going to reveal them here. I may sometime in the future though.
Since I’ve had him though, there have been a number of events that have happened that I’ve personally experienced, and witnessed. For the record, I’m not saying this because I intend to sell him. But I will tell you about one set of incidents involving this doll.
I live in the Denver area and brought him with me to the Stanley Hotel. A number of people (about 14) heard I was there and that I investigate paranormal claims, and were in my room. Almost all of them were TOTAL strangers. Only one of them was aware of Harold and the stories about him.
I brought him out and put him on my bed. I said nothing about the doll. Someone asked if he was “haunted.” I only said, “You tell me what you think.” One man proclaimed he was a skeptic and didn’t believe in anything “paranormal.”
About ten minutes later they were all standing out in the hallway talking about Harold. The self-proclaimed skeptic asked, “What the hell is up with that doll?”
“Why?” I asked.
“Because I felt as though it wanted to kill me!” I didn’t respond, only smiled. That wasn’t the first time; I had heard comments like that before.
Word about Harold spread throughout the hotel. The night auditor working that night was told by another employee, “Go up to Anthony’s room and check out his doll.”
“Why?” she wanted to know.
“Just go take a look at it.”
When she saw it she immediately had an intense headache, an upset stomach, and felt nauseous. I talked to her that night and she said that it lasted for 2 1/2 hours.
I bought Harold because I was investigating “haunted objects.” There is something going with this doll. I’m not sure what it is yet. I work with him for a short period of time, then put him away for long periods of time (typically more than a year).
It was only a little over two weeks ago that I took him out of storage after he had been in there for me than two years. My goal now is to finally determine whether or not there is something to this doll and Kathy’s claims about it.
Not to mention the incidents that have happened to people since I’ve had him. And there have been several, that I can’t explain just now.
