Haunted Harold doesn’t want Vincent interfering anymore!

A few days ago I received a message from Jane, Vincent’s mom (not their real names for purposes of privacy). She told me he said, I know Uncle Ant is sad. He needs to tell the story. 

It’s true… I’ve been upset. I went through so much to get the book published, feeling as though the entity in the doll has been fighting tooth and nail to stop me. I knew what he was talking about when he said I’m “sad.” (It does freak me out that he knew that, but it’s not unusual. He’s typically aware of my moods.) I had no idea what story he was referring to as far as the “story” so I wrote back and asked her to ask him.

I received these messages from Vincent’s mom this morning –

Ok was having a chat to [Vincent] … he says the story you need to tell is about the people you are helping. I asked who,he said the one’s Uncle Ant is helping get back home to the sunshine with the biggest smile.

I then asked another question, I can’t even remember what I asked as his answer throw me …he said,’It doesn’t want me to see mummy. It keeps showing darkness so I can’t do it. It doesn’t want me to get in the way!’

I left it at that as he seemed to be getting a bit restless.

That threw me too as Vincent can only draw what he sees, and drawing is the way he communicates best as to what’s going on as far as how I need to be aware of with the doll. Well, I’ll follow his advice. Since I revealed the identity of the entity in my book, I’ll start working on writing, and telling, what I know about three of the four spirits in the doll. The one who calls himself, “Harold,” and two of the three held captive with him.

This Harold the Doll story made me happy!

When Larry saw Harold on the Ghost Adventures show he immediately went online and found out everything he could about it. He went so far as to join the doll’s group on Facebook. He wished that there was something he could do to help me figure out the mystery. He had a vision which not only helped me, but I wrote about it in my soon to be released book.

Unfortunately, he and his family have been paying the price since; so I messaged him to find out how they were doing. He told me some things have been going on involving his young son that I won’t talk about here. I told him I wasn’t surprised because a number of people I talk about in my book are having things happen to them.

He also said something happened that he wasn’t sure he should mention, because it was “personal” to me. I told him I wanted to hear it. Here is his message to me (slightly edited) –

“… he (Larry’s son) has mentioned seeing and playing with a nice doggie that makes him feel happy and the doggie is really “bright.” Well I asked him what the doggie looked like. Gotta a lil description that made me think so i showed him pics of a lot of dogs fitting his description he gave and a few that didn’t. Well he picked out the picture of Chance and said that was him. The really nice dog he seen & played with.
Anthony’s note – Chance is my puppy who died three weeks ago today. I was convinced that the entity in the doll killed my fur baby before and I’m even more so now. But I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to know that my boy is helping comfort Larry’s son from the Other Side!

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.

Harold the Doll’s Demon Dog 2

First of all, I accept FULL RESPONSIBILITY for the misunderstandings, and misconceptions about Harold the Doll. I put it in storage in 2005, after I became convinced that there was, in fact, validity to the doll being “haunted,” or even “cursed.” I was HOPING that interest in it would eventually go away, and I could investigate it quietly.

I was WRONG.

Since that time interest in the doll is probably higher than in 2004-2005. Unfortunately, what most people believe about the doll comes from the original eBay listings about it, most of which were fabricated.

I decided in 2013 to reveal that I own the doll, and to set the record “straight.” For one thing, it hasn’t been owned by several people, some of whom have died from looking into it’s eyes.

I decided to go ahead and resume my investigation by first having a Clairvoyant give me a reading of the doll. She assured me that she knew nothing about the doll, and hadn’t seen it on the Internet. She didn’t even believe an object could be “haunted.” Her name is Erica Goodson. She did a second reading and changed her mind.

Erica did a total of 3 readings on the doll, refusing to touch it; she barely even glanced at it.

A couple of days later, I received an email, and then had several phone conversations with a young woman who claimed she had dreams of owning the doll since she was a child. She then told me about her dreams, much of which corroborated what Erica told me in her reading!

For the record, what Erica told me me has NEVER been made public.

I decided to pursue my investigation along the lines of the information Erica provided me. As part of that investigation, I agreed to have Lockdown Paranormal their own investigation on the doll, while I watched. Much of what they gathered seem to corroborate what Erica told me.

During their evidence review something happened to one of the investigators that caused them to close their investigation and tell me they wanted nothing more to do with the doll.

A year later, I was asked if I would allow The Ghost Adventures Crew to investigate the doll in an episode they were doing on the Island of the Dolls, in Mexico. After they reassured me that the doll would be taken seriously and not be treated as a prop I agreed to do so. NONE of the stories I shared with them were shared on the episode. Much of what they talked about they got from the ORIGINAL listings about the doll on eBay. Also, I did NOT provide them with the suitcase you see the doll in on the show.

I agreed to allow them to borrow the doll because I was thinking they’d have resources to investigate the doll that I didn’t have and hopefully provide answers I was looking for.

After the episode aired I decided to conduct my own investigation of the doll. During that time I was contacted by a woman who told me said she was looking up Annabelle on the Internet when she ran across a reference to Harold. She had the image of the doll on her iPad and her son, who was 6 years old at the time, saw it. He immediately became upset, telling her that a mother wanted the children in the doll to be released and come from out of the darkness into the sunlight. She told me she had no idea what her son meant but felt she should share it with me. I asked her to let me know if he said anything more about the doll.

He did have more to say… much more… providing substantial clues leading to the identity of the doll. These clues led me literally, around the world. Then he provided me with a clue, a location, that would give me the starting point to begin my search for the truth.

I asked his mother to ask him what I should know about the location. She told me that, according to him, I already knew everything I needed to know. A moment later, he told her to tell me, “Beware of the black dog that hides in the shadows.”

I have a drawing which not only shows the location but also shows a black animal figure in it, which my team and I were trying to understand what it was, when he said this. His remark explained it.

Further research suggested that the “black dog” is demonic in nature; at the very least a warning of impending death. Am I saying that’s what it means? No… but, later, he did draw another “clue” with the “black dog” in it, along with the word, “Die.”

Then the ITC message from a woman who apparently knows nothing about the doll (see my previous post) comes up with the word “dog” coming first.

What does all this mean? I honestly don’t know.

I do know that despite all of the opposition, ridicule, even threats, against me; and thanks to the support I have received, I am continuing my search for the truth, as we speak.

“Has Haunted Harold caused you any harm?”

Harold and I3

Hi, where did u get the doll from? Is the doll normally left out in open like that? Have u had any illnesses, bad luck, girl friends leaving u?…lol     Stephanie W.

I acquired the doll on eBay back in 2004. It’s probably the most infamous doll ever auctioned off on eBay. Personally, while I don’t talk about it publicly, I’ve been attacked numerous times, and it continues as late as yesterday. I haven’t been able to keep a relationship for years now. Illnesses, injuries, missed opportunities.”

So why do I still have it? I put it in a storage unit in 2005 and kept it out of the public eye when I became convinced that not only was there something going on with this doll, but it’s energy was dangerous. This is not your ordinary run of the mill “haunted doll.”

Due to a series of circumstances I took it back out of the storage unit it was in in 2013. A clairvoyant gave me a reading on the doll, and based on that reading I decided to pursue resolving the “mystery” of the doll.

One paranormal group investigated it after that, and in all honesty, I pretty much dropped the idea of investigating it to write another book. It was filmed at the Island of the Dolls, in Mexico. Zak later described it as “the most terrifying” investigation he had done in 10 seasons. Aaron said it was like being in a “real life horror movie,” which is the way I’ve been describing my experience with the doll for years now.

Despite all that, I didn’t get the answers I was looking for at the time so I decided to conduct my own investigation, which I’m in the process of doing now. The doll stays with me, but I take it out when I’m doing something, which I occasionally film and put on YouTube.
