A primary school teacher has been urged to leave his house "straight away" after he found a terrifying rag doll with a note claiming the house’s previous owners were murdered.
Jonathan Lewis had been carrying out some DIY when he knocked through a wall to investigate a loose wire – only to instead stumble upon a chilling kid’s toy.
The terrifying Victorian-style doll was sitting in a small wooden chair and had eerie yellow wool plaits.
Although the 32-year-old was stunned to find the doll, the folded piece of paper on its lap with a blood-curdling message left him even more freaked out.
It read: “Dear reader, 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.”
Jonathan had only just moved into the house in Walton, Liverpool – but his pals have already told him to get out as soon as he can.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “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."
But despite advice from his friends, the unfazed teacher insists he’ll be going nowhere.
He explained: “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.”
