We are 75 days away from Halloween but someone is already trying to scare us. Over the weekend the rumors of Annabelle’s escape began after an Internet user changed the doll’s Wikipedia page, claiming she had escaped from the Warrens’ Occult Museum, located in Monroe, Connecticut. But it all turned out to be nothing more than a hoax.
The museum is currently closed due to a zoning violation as of last year. Museum owner and caretaker of Annabelle, Tony Spera, also the son-in-law of Edward and Lorraine Warren, posted a video to YouTube and stood alongside the doll on display, proving she is right where she belongs. The museum is equipped with high tech security system, so if the doll actually had left the premises, Spera said he would’ve been aware.
On the YouTube video Spera said “I gotta tell you something. I don’t know if you’re gonna wanna hear this or not, but Annabelle did not escape... She didn’t take a trip. She didn’t fly first class, and she didn’t go out to visit her boyfriend.” Spera's video was done to put the rumors to rest, but also appreciated the concern from the people and added, "I’d be concerned if Annabelle really did leave because she’s nothing to play with.”
