No, Annabelle the haunted doll did not escape from the Warrens' museum https://t.co/fLoYKRyRl5— Newsweek Culture (@NewsweekCulture) August 14, 2020
Earlier today, reports of the haunted doll escaping from the Warrens occult museum started to pop up after her Wikipedia page was changed to indicate that she was missing and on the loose, causing discussions online.
But after a deeper investigation, it has been revealed that Annabelle hasn't lived in the museum for quite some time. The museum closed due to zoning violations, and the artifacts are in the possession of the Warrens' son-in-law, Tony Spera.
Annabelle is a "real-life haunted doll", a nurse student was the first owner of Annabelle, and after the doll was seen moving throughout her apartment, even leaving written notes and showing malicious and frightening behavior, she sought the help of a psychic. Annabelle convinced paranormal experts she was a young girl's spirit attached to the doll. But it turns out the spirit in the doll is actually a demonic spirit pretending to be a child. The doll allegedly even tried to kill the girl's friend, Lou, by strangling him.
Ed and Lorraine Warren were called in to investigate after that. The now-late paranormal legends took ownership of the doll, even on their first car ride with Annabelle, the Warrens alleged the doll caused the car's brakes to fail. She went on to become worldwide known by having a prominent role in the conjuring movies and in her own horror movie franchise.
News of her escape made the Internet to go crazy, with countless memes about it, but she’s still hopefully with her current owner.
