Destination America and The Lineup are live-streaming 'Ann' online
Fans of both live streams and terrible horror movies about dolls, rejoice! There’s a live stream of a doll named Ann that may or may not be haunted. Paranormal investigators believe the doll’s haunted — she’s created “strange odors” in the past, had a tear running down her cheek, and even “cries out in the middle of the night” — but is she really haunted or just a relic of the early 1900s that happens to be in acceptable condition with a resemblance to Little Bo Peep? Can a doll be haunted? Are you haunted? Is this live stream haunted?
Anyway, to figure out how haunted Ann is, Destination America and The Lineup — a site dedicated to covering the mysterious and paranormal — are giving Ann the spooky spotlight she deserves through a live webcast. According to legend the press release, Ann was a 13-year-old girl treated for tuberculosis in the early 1900s who grew attached to a caretaker named Lois. After Ann died, her spirit followed Lois home, where Lois, as one does, had a doll collection that could house spirits.

Fast forward to the present, when paranormal investigator, self-described demonologist, and star of Destination America’s Haunted Collector series John Zaffis tracks down “possessed” objects like Ann. During the live stream, Ann will sit “under constant surveillance” at the Lineup’s New York offices. According to the Lineup’s staff, Ann causes technical difficulties and has been known to “wave” in the past. (So far, Ann has just been sitting where she is, staring blankly at the camera.)
With all that in mind, Destination America is also hoping to find Ann a new home in which to potentially haunt. (Wannabe caretakers can enter here.) For everyone else, the live stream — watchable on DestinationAmerica.com or The Lineup or above — will be available for the next two weeks.
