After purchasing a purportedly 'haunted' doll from a woman in England  who wished to get rid of it, a paranormal researcher claims that the  figurine attacked his father!

The eerie-looking doll spawned headlines around the world last month when Debbie Merrick detailed how the creepy toy was tormenting her family.

No doubt fueled by the media coverage surrounding the case, the doll  wound up being the center of a bidding war among paranormal enthusiasts  looking to get their hands on the odd item.

Ghost hunter Lee Steer eventually purchased the doll for a little over  $1,000 dollars, but soon found out that Merrick's stories about the  object were seemingly true.
