The internet had split opinions after 32-year-old Jonathan Lewis discovered a spooky doll boarded up in the wall of his new home. He shared the contents of the note that revealed that the doll murdered the previous owners of the home. While some people urged the school teacher to leave the cursed home, others feel that it was an interesting prank pulled by the previous homeowners.

Lewis bought a new home in Walton, Liverpool, United Kingdom. Shortly after buying the home, he noticed a wire sticking out of one of the walls. The wire sticking out was in the place where the previous owners had kept their refrigerator. Deciding to figure out where the wire led to, the homeowner took his hammer to the wall.

He told Liverpool Echo that he first made a small hole in the wall. He claims that he was aware of a small vacant space in the walls beneath the stairs that had been plaster-boarded up. Once he made the small hole he shone a light to look at what was inside the wall. Lewis spotted the doll unnaturally boarded up in the wall.

To investigate further, Lewis made the hole bigger. He found the freckle-faced rag doll with a pin-stripe dress. The doll had a note sitting on its lap. The note was addressed to the “reader” or “new homeowner”. Lewis shared pictures of the note that read, “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.”

The note ended with an ominous, "Hope you sleep well.”

Some of Lewis’ friends took the note seriously, advising him to try and sell the house off, Daily Mail reported. However, the homeowner does not seem to share their sentiment. He shared that when he was shown the property he was told that the kitchen was renovated a few years ago. He also feels that the whole thing is a prank as the paper looked too new to have been there since 1961.
