"A doll named Sue" PART 2: The investigation and Journal: An experiment into haunted items.

This blog was posted on, a blog Anna wrote for while a team member for Angels of Light Paranormal Society.

This portion of this segment I will outline alittle info about Sue, our plans for her, and the journal we are keeping. This portion will be updated as the journal progresses, so please check back if you are interested in this research!


A Doll Named "SUE"
So I guess the first question you might as is why the name "Sue". One thing we want to make sure of, is that there is no preconceived notion that we conjured up this name through any psychic abilities, or that the doll has uttered the name Sue.

Sue comes from the claims from her previous owner's claims into why there maybe any suspicion of paranormal activity in the first place. At this point we are open to the situation and are not making any assumptions that this doll is haunted.

  • - Client is kept awake by music like old gospel, and Johnny Cash, "Walk the Line" specifically.

  • - The clients name was said out loud on a few occasions, she also heard the sentence "I'm so tired help me help me help me help me!" IN A MALE VOICE

  • - Phantom touching. 

  • -  TVs being turned on and off .

  • - Very loud bangs through out the home. 

  • - A remote that was disassembled being reassembled. 

"Sue" has derived from two things. Johnny Cash and his song about a man with a woman's name. The claims surrounding this FEMALE doll have all been an ADULT MALE. The name seemed fitting. Nothing fancy about the simply captures the ambiguous nature of this particular case. It's strange, we admit.

The Research and the Experiment:

Having acquired this doll, we decided it might be a good opportunity to experiment with the situation. We want to note that all experimental situations will be done with the utmost respect, just in case this doll does possess the spirit of a deceased human being.

GOAL: Do inanimate objects have the ability to retain, or possess spirits?

How we intend to figure this out:

We have 9 members on our team, some who have volunteered to keep Sue for 1 month periods to see if they have any type of strange occurrences while in the presence of the doll.

We will use the clients previous experiences to provoke a reaction from the doll (respectfully, no aggressive or unkind measures will be taken). This is up to the person who has Sue at the time. Some ideas include:

  • -Playing gospel music, or even Johnny Cash.
  • -Leaving a remote control exactly like the clients, see if the remote reassembles itself like the clients claim.
  • -Turn the TV off, see if it turns back on without any manipulation. (following the same routine as the client did)
  • -Be aware of any phantom touching or disembodied voices.

Types of Things we will be recording, should we have any positive results:
  • -Time of day and date
  • -Barometric pressures
  • -Moon phases 
  • -Weather conditions (storming, Sunny)
  • -EMF/ELF fluctuations (when available)
  • -Temperature
  • -Basic observations about events happening at the time (who, what, when, where)
** these may vary depending on the situation.




The preliminary interview and investigation, June 24th. We have 1 recorder rolling during the interview. We do manage to pick up a few voices that seem foreign to our own. These voices are very clear and do not match anyone present. They are male. All in attendance are female, except Scott, whom we are very careful to make sure he is not talking during these times to avoid confusion

Present are Anna Hill, Faye Navarro, Scott Wolf, Roxi Rodriguez, the client and grand daughter.

We plan to come back for an investigation.

A short investigation was performed on June 27th. At this time we were only able to stay a few hours because of the client's age. A few recorders were left in the home after we left, to capture any evidence of the experiences the client was having. While we normally never leave equipment that we cannot observe, this is the only way the client would allow us to gather audio at this time.

  • Recorder 1: Located in the living room near the doll and the disassembled remote.
  • Recorder 2: In the client's room where the voices and music is heard.

We captured alot of shuffling/sliding noises near Recorder 1. A Very loud bangs were heard in the same location as the client claims. When we go to pick up the recorder, she lets us know that the original bang happened and that the "music played alllllllllllll night long". We did not capture any music or voices during this time on either recorder.

The doll was removed at the clients request on June 28th, approximately 2:30 p.m.


Beginning of Journal
June 28th- At this time the doll goes to Anna's house where it is sealed into a Rubbermaid container and the doll is kept in the garage. There are no reports of activity at this time.

July 9th- Still no activity. At this point, Anna feels it may have been a reasonable amount of time for the doll to spend time in the living quarters of her home. For protective measures, and due to her own beliefs, she feels as precautionary that she would like to take the doll to fellow member Jennifer's home (a practicing Wiccan) to do a blessing on the doll. At this time Anna also lays down ground rules. 

  • There is to be no malicious acts against anyone in the home.
  • If at any time the doll seems to become malicious, it will be resealed and taken to a storage unit.
  • It is welcome to play music or talk anytime it wishes.
  • Occasionally we will play gospel or music.
  • Assuming the Spirit enjoys Johnny Cash, cigar or other items will be offered any increase in activity will be noted.
  • These things will all revolve around good behavior.
  • All things will be done with respect, from both parties.
The doll is placed in the living room of Anna's home. Due to her own beliefs, tourmaline and selenite is placed around the doll. We are by no means claiming that this is scientific or that anything is proven to deter or cause paranormal occurrences. Theory is tourmaline deters the negative, Selenite promotes the positive. These are beliefs practiced by the individual conducting this experiment. In this case, this is Anna Hill.

July 10th- Approximately 10:30 p.m. I am in bedroom and had been watching movies with my son. Movies ended, my son went to his room and got in bed for the night. My husband is in the living where the doll is. He turns off the TV, turns out the lights and goes to the restroom before retiring for the night. As he leaves the restroom he notices the TV come back on from the hall way. He re-enters the living room, finds no one up and sees nothing that would disturb the remote or television buttons. He turns the TV off and returns to our bedroom where he tells me what has happened. He is skeptical in nature, but I can see he is alittle disturbed by this. We have owned that TV for two years, it has never come on by itself until tonight.

Aug. 9th 

    Sue's new journey started by visiting my (Faye's) house for the month. I have had no strange happenings and was looking forward to this part. I figure if things did happen once Sue got here I could contribute the occurrences to her but as of now there still has been no occurrences.  No t.v. being turned on, no unusual happenings. She has be next to my side of the bed until today I figure I would place her in the living room to see if things might start happening. With the claims she has been in the living room of both locations. So that is where she will be until Sept. 13th where her journey will take her to another team members house for a month. I will update if there are any changes.

Aug. 25th                  

  I moved Sue to the living room today in hopes that her being left alone for the majority of the time would help generate something. I even went so far as to play Johny Cash to also see if it would trigger something. Well, nothing had happened. 

Sept. 2nd

   I had some negative things happening from outside people that has put a huge strain on my family.  I decided not knowing at this point if there are any truth to the claims to Sue I decided that day to place her in the garage and left her there until Sept. 12th when Jennifer came up to get her for the month. I'm still convinced that the issues I am now dealing with since that day had nothing to with Sue being at my house. I'm hoping that things will be resolved in short time in a positive way and will look forward to Sue's next visit to my house.  So at this point there hasn't been any conclusive evidence to support any claims to Sue.  To be continued......
Sept. 12th
  Sue rides in my (Jennifer's) car heading to my home. It was late in the evening and Sue was seat belted in the back seat. I had turned on the radio attempting to find something to listen to. I put it on search (this is where the channels surf on their own). One of the stations was playing a Johny Cash song. I did not touch the radio, for I was not in the mood for country. The search just stopped on that station, and the search had not even gone round once. I only made one comment to Sue asking him if he stopped the search, but received no further response while driving home.

Sept 13th

   In the morning I placed Sue on my couch facing the TV. My two dogs cam over and sniffed Sue thoroughly. Throughout the day my male dog brings Sue his ball and waits. He was waiting as if Sue was going to throw the ball. Nothing happened, and my dog gave up waiting.

Sept 17th 

   It was about dinner time when I thought I heard a male grumble words passing the kitchen door. I asked my husband if he had said anything. He said no. TV's were off, the radios were off, and my husbands computer was off. The dogs were outside, and the cat was in the kitchen with me along with my son. I went back to cooking dinner, and then my son described the sound I had heard. He did not want to say anything cause he thought is was his dad.

Oct 7th

   I have Sue back in the front room on the couch, but this time closer to the front window. While I was sitting on the couch, I was reading a book. The TV was not on, my husband was home in the back room. I felt as if a cold hand had reached over and caressed my upper left thigh moving toward my buttocks. I looked up from my reading, immediately looking for the dogs, the cat and my husband. None were near me. I turned to Sue and ask if that was him, I received no further response.
