Texas family baffled by 'haunted' doll they can't get rid of

A Texas family is on edge after a doll they tried to throw out kept mysteriously reappearing in their home.

The doll, a replica of the character Elsa from Disney's Frozen, was gifted to Emily and Mat Madonia's daughter Aurelia in 2013. 

The doll would recite phrases and sing the Frozen theme song 'Let it Go' when a button on her necklace was pressed. However in 2015 things began to turn odd.

Elsa began switching between English and Spanish at random -even when the doll was switched off. 

Things grew more sinister when they decided to throw the doll away.

Emily posted on Facebook last week to ask her friends for help. 

"For those of you have not been following our Elsa doll saga, [my husband] threw it away weeks ago and then we found it inside a wooden bench," she wrote.

She says she and her husband were "weirded out" and so wrapped the doll inside two bin bags, then filled them with rubbish before putting it out on the street for the bin men to collect.

"We went out of town and forgot about it. Today, Aurelia says 'Mom I saw the Elsa doll again in the backyard'


In the comments, Emily says she is "100 percent" convinced her husband is not playing a trick on her.

"Mat turned sheet white when I showed him. The kids could not have gotten it out."

She says there is no doubt the doll is the same one gifted to her daughter, as her child coloured sections of the doll in marker.

"I don't understand how or when [it was returned to the house], especially because the garbage truck had taken it away".

Emily has now mailed the doll to a friend of hers in Minnesota, without a return address.

"If the doll comes back I might have to open my mind the some of the more supernatural solutions," she said.

The doll is now taped to the brush guard of friend Chris Hogan's Jeep.

"If anything weird happens I'm welding her into a steel pipe and sinking it in Lake of the Woods," Hogan wrote on Facebook.
