Annabel Fenwick Elliott described the situation in the UK DAILY MAIL. A number of other global media sources latched onto to the paranormal tale.
Here is the lowdown and what you need to know about this plastic piece of evil.. Jayne Harris is a paranormal investigator in the UK. She posted photos and a video of a doll that Harris claims is inhabited by the spirit of a Holocaust victim.. Viewers of the videos and content have written Harris with personal messages about how PEGGY, the doll, has affected their lives.. Some have complained of crippling headaches after seeing Peggy. Some reported visions of mental institutions and abuse. Others said they became anxious. And one said she experienced a heart attack..
The one video--creepy indeed--involves Harris driving PEGGY in the car. Peggy staring at the camera is a little unnerving.. I had to tell myself it is just a doll..
Just a doll.
And this is the doll:
And this is one of the videos:
From the DAILY MAIL story:
'One lady said that when she opened a photograph of Peggy, her computer froze on the picture and the room went cold.
'She then said she felt someone in the room with her and could hear them moving around.This lady was messaging me at the time via Facebook asking me to quickly advise her on what to do.
'I took Peggy down into an isolation area and requested that she cease her tormenting. Apparently everything returned to normal.'
Mrs Harris continued: 'Another lady yesterday said she had been experiencing light bulbs blowing and a presence in her home after she had been speaking about Peggy.
'With Peggy, it's not only while people are looking at her or watching her, it seems to be afterwards too.'
Mrs Harris, who has herself experienced migraines and feeling drained after working with Peggy, said she has never seen a case of this intensity before.
She runs an organisation called Haunted Dolls, and often gets random items in the post with no prior background.
Mrs Harris uses an array of gadgets and experiments to piece together the puzzles surrounding them.
There have been a wide spectrum of people attempting to place a story with Peggy, a background to the supposed spirit inhabiting the doll. Two mediums believe she is a Jewish soul and a victim of Hitler's World War II atrocities.
There has been a Facebook group set up to study the ongoing odyssey of PEGGY..
But there are also many detractors who are looking at the PEGGY story as a bunch of loonies who need to be locked up. One comment on the DAILY MAIL article was funny enough to be reprinted here:
It really works I suffered bad chest pains by watching this! I thought I was having an heart attack but then I realised it was that dodgy kebab that gave me heartburn.
Even those who find this situation comical are also understanding that it could either be collective consciousness.. perhaps people giving the power to the doll to become fearful and mighty.. or just a group of people making each other scared.
Dolls are freaky.. Clyde Lewis showcased that brilliantly in 2014 when he broadcasted a live NET stream of Nickle in a dark room alone. The doll moved.
There is a little bit of a personal tale I'd like to relay, one that was brought to the forefront of my mind by Peggy. When I was a child, perhaps 4 or 5, I was at my grandmother's house for Christmas Eve dinner. My brother and cousin devised a very elaborate prank that scared me to this day.. They rigged my grandmother's doll (freakish as well) with strings, turned the lights off, and continued to call out my name to go into the room. A dark room.. with a little beam of light on the doll, from the shadows they would make the doll's arms and legs move. I screamed and ran each time.. And in a weird way, Peggy looks sort of like that doll of my childhood fears..
Regardless of truth or not to the paranormal aspect, Peggy is one frightening lady. Blank eyes. Motionless face. A doll that I would not want to see staring at me in a dark room..
And for that reason, I myself did not watch the videos. Perhaps paranoia.. Or maybe I'm much more comfortable believing that PEGGY is just a doll..
Just a doll...
