A new homeowner was left shocked after he found a rag doll with a bone-chilling note inside the wall of his house.
32-year-old Jonathan Lewis had just bought the property in Walton, Liverpool when he started to examine the void just under the stairs.
He took a hammer and broke the wall and immediately found the creepy doll inside clutching a sinister note.
The note read: “Dear reader/ new homeowner, thank you for freeing me!
“My name is Emily. My original owners lived in this house in 1961. I didn’t like them so they had to go.
“All they did was sing and be merry. It was sickening. Stabbing was my choice of death for them so I hope you have knives.
“Hope you sleep well.”
But Lewis was told by the real agent that the kitchen was renovated “four or five years ago” so the doll must’ve been placed there by the previous owners around that time.
In an interview with Liverpool Echo, Lewis said: “I’ve just bought the house and I got the keys on Friday.
“I kind of knew there was this void underneath the stairs that had been plaster boarded up. There was a wire coming out where the previous owners had the fridge but I didn’t know where the wire was plugged in so I knocked through a bit of the plasterboard to see what was there.
“I knocked through a hole about the size of a fist, shone a light in and there was a doll just sitting there.”
He went on: “Some of my friends have told me to put my house back on the market and move out but I think it’s just a laugh.
“I’ll be honest, I found the whole thing hilarious. I’d probably do the exact same thing.
“The letter says 1961 but the estate agent said when she was showing me around that the kitchen was only done four or five years ago.
“I think it must have been put there then because the paper doesn’t look very old and looks relatively recent.”
