I’d like to ask about Harold the Doll

hi anthony i have two questions i would like to ask you about harold if you would be so kind since he was on ghost adventures,has his arm been fixed and have you ever asked the spirit/spirits within the doll are they trapped/bounded or do they choose to stay?
The arm hasn’t been repaired, which is why it’s in the black bag that you saw Zak Bagans carrying it in into the shack before all hell broke loose.
There are four “spirits” in the doll, and one demon that isn’t in the doll but it and the doll appear together. Three of the spirits are confined within a “cage,” and one of the spirits is shackled to the cage.
My goal at this time is to find out how this happened, and release the three spirits in the cage.

This was created by Melanie Blystra, a New Mexico artist, after seeing a vision of the nature of the doll. It corroborates other independent information I’ve received about the doll from two other sources, none of whom know each other.

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.

My next step investigating Harold the Haunted Doll.

Now that I’ve posted several videos up on YouTube, caught anomalous energy on my Tri Field EMF Meter, caught orbs on video, recorded EVPs I haven’t posted, and Clairvoyant Erica Goodson has done a reading on Harold the Haunted Doll, I’m more convinced than ever before that there really is something “paranormal” going on with the doll. So I’m now looking for a paranormal group to do an investigation on the doll.

I’m looking for one that uses mediums, psychics, and such. When I had my group, back in the day, I used them in my investigations. I don’t think that using technology that was never meant to detect “ghosts” is “scientific.”

I’m warned about Harold the Haunted Doll!

After posting 4 videos of the reading Clairvoyant Erica Goodson did on Harold on YouTube (Haunted Harold is read by a psychic!) I was contacted by a woman who seemed extremely agitated after watching  the first video.

“I’m just going to say this you can believe me or not! He’s a [strong] spirit and not alone!! He was guided into what he does!” she wrote to me. “He’s trapped and he’s mad[Because people] won’t let him go! It was never his intention in being handed down all the time! Watch and see other things will happen in your home.”

“I’m sorry but I’m being pulled in by him it’s hard to explain.”

I really am interested in what she has to say. My plan is to continue getting readings on Harold.

It’s not that I don’t trust Erica, and what she said. I don’t trust Harold.

Erica Goodson does a Psychic Reading on Harold the Haunted Doll

After Erica Goodson, a Clairvoyant, did her first reading on Harold, it convinced me that the spirit inside of Harold is a “trickster.” Erica told me that she didn’t sense a spirit in the doll. She also told me that she didn’t believe that a spirit attached to an object. “Why would they?” she asked.

So when she did her first reading on Harold what did she think she was picking up on? “The energy of the person or people who owned it,” she explained to me. “Whatever we touch, especially if we’re fond of it, we leave our energy on it.” Which would explain why she kept talking about a little girl who died around the age of 4 or 5 years old.

When she started to do her second reading on Harold yesterday, she talked about seeing the same little girl. She also talked the girl’s mother along with a man whose relationship with the girl or the mother she couldn’t identify. “He’s not the girl’s father, or uncle. I don’t know who he is to her,” she explained.

Then I decided to take the crucifix out of the Harold’s bag.

Shortly after that the focus of the reading became the man Erica was seeing. And what she described is what I’ve suspected for years now, and other psychics talked about back in 2004 and 2005.

She said that this man talked about being hunted, beaten and murdered for a crime he didn’t commit. She said that the spirit told her he was accused of killing the little girl but it wasn’t true. He also told her that “he couldn’t help the things he did. He wanted to stop, but he couldn’t.”

“What things?” I asked Erica.

“The bad things he did,” Erica said.

Erica also gave me several clues as to where this took place and told me that in my search, “You’ll know it when you find it, because the mother still haunts the home.”



Haunted Harold, was that you?

This just happened a few minutes ago. I was playing  this video http://youtu.be/Ye_sRghF4lU
of Harold on my computer to see if I could get a reaction from Harold, and it did!

First of all I saw the front of papers sitting on top of three books I have on my desk start moving up and down. I wasn’t sitting at the desk when it happened otherwise I might not have seen them moving.

There wasn’t any air current going through my room, and when the air conditioner did kick in, the papers didn’t move. I tried shaking the desk, and the papers did move, but not the way they did when I saw them moving earlier. In fact, nothing I did replicated the movement.

So I decided to take a pic of my desk to have a record of the way the papers are, and this is what I caught.


I was stunned to see the energy in the upper right corner, so I took several more pictures. I didn’t catch the energy, but the pixilation is bad.


In case you’re wondering, Harold is still zipped up in his bag, with the crucifix.
