Footage of a creepy puppet moving on its own during the night is quickly going viral (video below), and according to the puppet’s owner, this isn’t the first time it has shown strange behaviors.
Reports say the doll’s previous owner claimed that at one point, it tried to choke him to death. Now, paranormal investigator Jayne Harris has taken ownership of the puppet and set up cameras to monitor its activity during the night.
Shockingly, the cameras captured the puppet appearing to almost literally come to life, and Harris said it’s one of the most exciting things she’s seen in her line of work.
“I've never had anything as exciting as this,” Harris told the Daily Mail. “I've caught pictures of mists, orbs and shadows but nothing as physical as this video evidence. Normally you expect to see an orb or a shadow, but as soon as I saw a bit of movement and a glint from the metal hooks it made me jump and I knew we'd recorded something important.”
“We've always kept the puppet in a sealed blessed cabinet as it's a safe zone. It also means we can keep our experiments as controlled as possible. The cabinet has no doors, so you would have to physically lift all four sides and the base off to move it, there are not any holes or space for anything to sneak in there either. For us there is no point in faking your own evidence as it's only tricking yourself — this footage is real.
"Now we're going to keep filming with motion sensors as this is just one video and we want to build a bigger picture currently we don't know the name or anything else about the spirit. Our ultimate goal is to find out as much as we can about the spirit and then try to understand why he is still here.”
Harris says that after viewing the footage, she believes without a doubt that there is a spirit controlling the puppet. She took ownership of the doll from its second owner who inherited it after his father’s death in the 1960s.
