Clown Doll

by Holly
(Glasgow, Scotland)

I heard this story on TV. I seen it on a show called Fact or Fiction: Beyond Belief. It shows you re-inactments of ghost stories. Some are real and other are fake but at the end of every show they tell which ones are which. This one was real. Its not really a ghost story but it's still majorly creepy.

It was a Friday night and a 14 year old girl was babysitting for her mum's friends. She kept rocking the baby to sleep but every time she lay it down in its crib and went downstairs, the baby would start screaming. The girl called the baby's parents and said:

"Your baby wont stop crying. Is it maybe the clown doll sitting in the corner?" she asked.

"Sorry ? What clown doll? ..." asked the mother in shock. "We don't have any clown dolls in our house," the mother answered. The baby's father then grabbed the phone off the mother and said, "Take my baby, go next door and call the police!"

The girl did this quietly.

The neighbours called the police and when the police got there they found that the "doll" that had been sitting in the corner was actually a man who'd snuck in dressed as a clown and was sitting perfectly still the whole time...


I don't mean to scare you, but this story is somewhat true. This book gives the real story and is recommended reading. - Brenda, Webmaster

Actually ...

Actually, it wasn't a doll, that would be too small. It was a clown statue and the guy was a midget man dressed as a clown. Still, I love this story because it makes me want to search my house for any creepy guys watching me. XD

That's always a good sign of a scary story!

Consider editing your page for grammar errors. When you first say "I seen it" - you lose many folks, because this comes across as, well, I don't know how else to say it other than that it sounds uneducated.

That story sounds too far-fetched to be true. How small would this man have to be to be mistaken for a doll? Was his last name Roloff?
