Little girl’s doll came to life then VANISHED
A creepy doll, known as the ‘Camera Shy Doll’ was previously in one of the most haunted houses in the world – the home of wealthy Captain Jack Geiger and his 12 children.
Located in Key West Florida, a number of spooky sightings and weird sensations have been witnessed in this house – but no stories are more terrifying than that of the ‘Camera Shy Doll’ that lived there.
When a cholera epidemic was sweeping town, many sick children were brought to the nursery, where they would spend their last days in this room, hidden away from the fearful residents.
The house was opened as a museum in 1960 and is when the doll was placed in a toy box.
Ghosthunters and passersby have witnessed ghostly children, laughing, crying and playing in the nursery. The captain himself has even seen walking with his daughter Hannah in the gardens. The doll is said to have belonged to Hannah, whose strangely eerie portrait still hangs in this house. The doll is said to have walked out of the house on its own.
The museum manager was constantly being called to investigate alarms being tripped by movement in the house. The activity would always be from the doll’s room. Security frequently reported seeing something in the window. When they went to investigate, there was never anyone there.
Whenever visitors tried to take photos of the strange looking doll, they all experienced problems with their cameras. Either pictures just didn’t develop, or black streaks appeared.
The house is said to be one of the most haunted in the world.
