I hear from Kathy R!

I won Harold in an auction in 2004 that Kathy R had after owning him for a year and experiencing many of her own paranormal experiences. It was good to talk to her, and she promised to fill in a lot of the gaps in the story I have.

The last time I talked to Kathy was at least 3 years ago. She told me she was looking for an image of Harold online when she saw the videos I put up.

She told me that she and her husband haven’t been well, in a number of way, especially physically.

It’s amazing how fast things are happening since Erica’s reading. After that, Fiona contacts me, then Linda, now Kathy. I have a feeling that Harold is behind all of this.

Harold the Haunted Doll caught in a lie?

Okay, I’ll admit it. I don’t know what to think, or I should say I was hoping that what Linda told me was the truth. Not that she lied. I think Harold did – to her.

I received an email at little bit ago from Linda, in which she shared with me the thoughts that came to her last night that she believes came from Harold.

So much of it made sense to me. She related things to me that she could not have possibly known. She also said that Harold said he sees me as a “father figure,” which I thought was interesting.

But then there was one line that made no sense at all. “He says he doesn’t make people sick, people become that way, but people want to blame him.”

I’ve seen people become sick in front of my eyes in his presence, not to mention, physically injured. It’s almost as though he couldn’t help himself … he had to lie. Which would explain why she says that he told her not to tell me anything.

Both of which makes me doubt everything that was supposedly said.

Did Harold the Haunted Doll draw a line in the sand?

Anthony’s note – First of all, I want to say that if this weren’t happening to me, I’m not sure I’d believe it. This is becoming a real life horror film.


I woke up this morning, checked my cell phone, and found this message on Facebook from “Linda” –


Anthony, I had a REALLY rough night…. look I never had the ability to speak to the dead.  Now I have thoughts  going on other than my own.  I don’t know what to do, I don’t know how to handle this.

Although I have not been to church I am religious. This is no time for me to have any distance with God or Jesus.  I am going to speak to one the priest about what is going on here. 

Like I said there are thoughts running through my mind that are not my own, almost negotiating with me telling me what the issues are, but then I’m not supposed to tell anyone, or… I don’t know. This is why I don’t know what to do or how to proceed, but this is a problem Anthony, a problem I never dealt with, have absolutely no knowledge of. It’s because I offered to help. 

Once again you were right, what am I going to do? Having never seen anything like this.  Now you can think I am crazy, or you can help me understand what I am dealing with and direct me from here….

I am hoping you don’t think I am crazy…


I immediately tried calling her home phone, and her cell phone. No answer of either of them. I’ll admit, I did wonder if her imagination was getting the best of her, as I tried calling her.
Last night she told me she saw a “shadow” in her home, and Blue, her 160 lb. Mastiff was “on alert” pacing back and forth, growling and barking at nothing. While I was on the phone with her, I could her Blue barking occasionally in the background.


I tried calling her home phone a second time and this time, she answered the phone. “Anthony,” she said, “I don’t have any ‘abilities,’ I’m not a psychic or anything, but last night I kept having these thoughts that aren’t my own. I know that they were coming from Harold.”


I’ve dealt with people before whom I’ve wondered about their mental stability to begin with, let alone after their encounter with Harold. Kathy R, the woman I acquired Harold from, being one of them. I began to wonder about Linda’s.


I asked her what she was referring to and she told me that she was afraid. “I was warned not to tell anyone, especially you, or I’d pay for it.” I could tell she was genuinely afraid.


“Linda,” I told her. “If it is Harold, he’s preying on your fears, and if you listen to him, then it’s the first step in him controlling you.”


“That’s what I was afraid of,” she said.


“Tell me what he said, and I’ll you what to do, and I’ll deal with him afterwards,” I said starting to become angry, but still not sure what to think.


When Linda told me what she had heard, I asked her how much of Harold’s story had she read, and what videos I had posted on YouTube she had watched. She admitted that she had seen one of the videos in which there were “a lot of orbs,” but insisted that she wasn’t familiar with his story, and hadn’t seen any other videos.


Even if she had, I wondered, as she was telling me what she claimed Harold was telling her, how did she know details I’ve never shared with anyone? Details I edited out of the videos I’ve posted, and never written about except in my own private records of events and readings?


She also described the apparition she saw last night, and provided new information about him I hadn’t heard before, and described him in a way that sounded eerily similar to what Fiona described him.


She said he asked her if he could stay with her because I was “mean.”  Then she told me that he said that “someone would be coming to get him from you.”


“I know all of this is happening because I offered to help him,” she said.


She’s right.


After I got off of the phone with her, I made a couple of videos of me having a “talk” with him. After the second video, I turned around and plugged in my phone into the charger. When I turned back around the top of the bag that Harold is in was closed. Not zipped up, but closed. And I didn’t do it.


I’m going to include a picture so you can see the bag he’s in.


Chills ran up and down my body. “Harold just drew a line in the sand,” I thought, “and he’s letting me know he’s had enough of me.”

I tried to warn her about Harold the Haunted Doll!

I was talking on the phone with Linda (not her real name) when somehow, Harold came up. She started joking, making fun of, laughing at, and about, Harold. I kept telling her, “I wouldn’t do that, or say that. You need to stop.”

Since I’m in the Denver area, and she’s in New York, she was thinking, “What can happen?” She kept laughing and joking.  Well, she found out.

She did suggest, in all seriousness, that I contact a strega, a practitioner of Italian witchcraft. to see what I can do to release Harold.

A couple of hours later I started receiving the following messages on Facebook – my messages are in bold print, her messages are italicized.

Hi, been dealing with a Harold inspired incident.

… well I hope it was a good inspired incident… you might want to remind him of his request …. tell him (Linda) says behave…  🙂

Seriously of you need anything, or if I can help… I would love to assist…

How can you help?

I guess you don’t know … R was attacked by Harold.

… sorry was away from the PC cooking…. I really don’t know how I could help, the one thing that comes to mind is pray… not saying if I am gifted, but I do come from a bloodline of Stragas on one side and Santeria on the other…. OMG Anthony I just had to step away from the PC as I was typing big blue started yelping in terror… that is a first… WOW!  He’s OK now, but something has him shaking…. I mean shivering….. WOW!

I have never heard this dog yelp so loud…

 ….he is shivering.  What is this??

I don’t know.

Anthony, maybe just coincidence but he has never done this, he’s so scared he won’t even get up… just has his head down ears back and shivering curled up in a ball…. several things have fallen I the living room within the past 10 min and nothing is there… so what I’ve started to do is pray… what do I do?

Going to catch some zz’s or take a nap, I am not a good sleeper so I can’t say I am going to bed…. I will probably be up in a few hours if I can sleep at all…. as long as the big guy (Blue, the dog) is next to me he is fine, so he’s s going to sleep in my room tonight…. something I never let him do, but what ever has him going has him going (poor thing)… I am fine….

I had the strangest night EVER.  First the dog yelping like someone was killing him, the fan being turned upside down, things falling in the living room…. all that…we went to bed… I woke up around 2:00am with a screaming headache, and violently vomiting…. and then I was fine…. ODD right?  I don’t think I ‘m getting sick because as fast as it came is as fast as it left…

As I was reading this I immediately knew what was going on.

It was Harold.


I tried to warn you.

Oh, I am up AGAIN… been up and down all night… Feel like a little kid this morning, very happy t’s not dark out anymore…. I guess I am a chicken huh? The only thing I was never really scared of was ghosts… but I think after this last experience I have re-THUNK that….

…. bumps in the night kind of always made me feel like I had company… for the first time those bumps in the night had a completely different feeling, didn’t like the company….. and yes you did warn me…
Anthony, is the worse over??? The dog is so big, he has never displayed any type of fear like that, Anthony, he was truly terrified last night… he is sleeping right next to me, for me to get out of bed for anything I have to jump over him, that’s how big he is…. and yes we slept with the lights on….
… I have a fancy plaque with the name and history of the surname “Gr—-.” That is where I have the candle lit for dad, underneath it… that fell off wall and just missed the candle, thank god, and office supplies by the printer.  I wasn’t in the room, but it was like the stuff was thrown off the desk… and again the fan being upside down, that didn’t fall it looks like it was placed that way…

Harold the Haunted Doll isn’t happy.

I met with the founders of Lockdown Paranormal, John and Randy, today to discuss the possibility of them doing an investigation of Harold. Joining me were my friend Camille Massing whose had her own personal experiences with Harold, and Clairvoyant Erica Goodson whose done readings on Harold.

“I’m not looking for evidence as to whether or not this doll is ‘haunted,'” I told them. “I want further documentation of the activity.”

John had an Ovilus with him. In case you don’t know what one is, it’s a device that supposedly translates EMF waves into spoken words (don’t ask me, I don’t know). We tried doing experiments outside of the coffee shop we were in, and then in the back of Camille’s car. We finally decided to go to Camille’s house which was only a few minutes away. Erica decided not to join us, saying that she felt Harold might be more “vocal” if she wasn’t around.

At Camille’s home our results weren’t much better. Then Camille received a phone that she took, walking away from us. Once she did, the Ovilus seemed to become more active. About the same time I suggested that Harold try sending messages to Erica. The next moment we heard, “Sent.”

In the mode that John and Randy had the device in, it was difficult to understand what was being said.

Erica and I were texting each other. She said that she felt that Harold wished that I would just hurry up and do what I needed to do to release him. I talked earlier about taking him to a renowned psychic for a reading, and John, Rudy, and I all heard what we agreed sounded like that psychic’s name. After that we kept hearing what sounded like, “Worried, and guilty.” We even heard what sounded like the word, “evil.”

Erica said that Harold was worried that he might never be released from the doll. That’s when I admitted that I had been wondering what I should do if I found out that Harold really is “evil.” Would I be able to, in good conscience, release the spirit trapped inside the doll?

After all, considering all of the things he’s done since being in the doll, what could he do if he were free of it?

These were the questions I’ve been wrestling with for the past couple of days, but didn’t share them with anyone; still Harold knew I was thinking about this.

The following are some of the text that Erica sent to me –

I did feel weird when you said you were taking him to places other than ______________,

Like you said about more people reading him. He will go off again if you take him.

He wants out. He just keeps saying he’s done.

The way he’s making me feel is it will be really bad. And to hurry.

There’s a lot of emotions with him right now. He doesn’t like what he’s done but there’s something there. He’s just done. I hear him again. Since he’s been trapped.

He hadn’t done anything ’til he was trapped. He’s worried he won’t get free.


John, Rudy, and I plan to get together again to do a more formal investigation, which I’ll video. I do want to thank both of them for their time today; Camille for allowing us to use her home, and Erica for giving Harold a voice.

I guess I should mention that when I picked up the bag Harold is in, my back started to tighten up and really hurt. It’s only now, hours later, that my back is starting to feel a little better.

The latest on Haunted Harold the Doll

I’m meeting with a paranormal group tomorrow to discuss with them doing an investigation on Harold. From my point of view, I don’t need them to “prove” what I already know, which is that the doll is “haunted.” I just want more evidence showing that.

I’ve also written a “treatment” (proposal) for a documentary that I’ll be presenting to a movie production company in the next day or two; after I’ve had a chance to let it sit, and can look at it with fresh eyes.

Not that I know how to write a treatment, but I can’t wait on someone who does to do it for me, and take the chance it doesn’t happen. I’d rather give it a shot and fail, than do nothing and “succeed.”

If someone out there is reading this, and interesting in “producing” a documentary about Harold, let me know! My email is “haroldthehaunteddoll@gmail.com.”
