Has this ever happened to you? You see a television report about a porcelain doll purchased for a few dollars from a secondhand store. The doll turns out to be possessed by some evil spirit and terrorizes the family that took it in – moving objects around, setting off smoke alarms, making strange sounds and leaving the legs of an adult man covered in mysterious scratches. You think to yourself, “Gee, I’d like to have a doll like that.” So you purchase the formerly cheap china turned possessed porcelain doll on eBay for £866.00 ($1122.77). You proudly display your new possession (ironic?) in your parents’ home. What could possibly go wrong? “My mum shouted to me, “Lee, you best get downstairs – your dad’s getting affected. He’s got scratches on him.” “Lee” is Lee Steer from Rotherham, South Yorkshire, a paranormal investigator who either didn’t investigate this thoroughly enough or was looking to flip the doll to another fool after appearing on TV with a new tale of terror. Lee lives with his parents, Paul and Amy Steer, who obviously want the doll out their house (and probably Lee out of their basement) after Paul noticed that the pain in his arm was caused by six mysterious scratches. “It seems pretty similar to the scratches on Debbie’s husband from what I can tell. We have no idea where they came from. My dad’s a believer. He’s said he’s not happy with it being in the house.” Insert “Duh!” here.
