(WTNH) — Ryan visits the Warren’s Museum in Monroe and comes face to face with the famed Annabelle Doll. The doll and her history inspired the fill Annabelle (2014). The Annabelle doll was first introduced to Ed and Lorraine Warren in 1970. It is one of 3,500 paranormal cases that the Warrens investigated during their famed careers.
The doll was given to a 28 year old nurse in Hartford from her mother. Peculiar things started to happening around the woman’s apartment shortly after receiving the doll. A note was left on parchment paper saying “Help Me”, even though the nurse didn’t have any paper of that sort in her apartment. At first, she thought that someone was breaking into her apartment, but soon confirmed that no one was breaking in. Other strange things that the nurse observed was the doll’s ability to move. One night the woman’s fiance dreamed the doll was choking him, and he awoke to the doll on top of him and found multiple scratch marks on his body.
Ed Warren confiscated the doll and locked it up. Visitors who have taunted the doll experienced freak accidents on their way home from the museum.
The museum is located in Monroe and is run by Ed and Lorriane Warren’s son-in-law, Tony Spera.
