Following on the Possessed Dolls trend I dug up the story of 'Annabella' (pictured above). This case was investigated by the Warrens, who had also investigated the Amityville house prior to the movie being made. This couple were possible the most well known Paranormal Investigators (other than the GhostBusters) though sadly Ed passed away in 2006 at 80 years of age.

Here are some quotes from the article:

"Who’s Annabelle?" Ed promptly asked. "She belongs to Donna, she moves, she acts alive, but no, I don’t think she’s alive. She’s in the living room" said Angie, pointing across the table. There, sitting on the sofa." Lorraine looked to her left, into the living room. "Are you talking about the doll?" "That’s right," Angie replied, "the big raggedy Ann doll. "That’s Annabelle, she moves!" Ed got up and walked into the living room to inspect the doll. It was big and heavy, the size of a four-year-old child, sitting with its legs stretched out on the sofa. The black pupil-less eyes stared back at him, while the painted-on smile gave the doll an expression of grim irony.

"We knew something unusual was going on," Donna answered. "The doll did change rooms by itself. It did pose in different gestures, we all saw it, but wanted to know why? Was there maybe some plausible reason why the doll was moving? So Angie and I got in touch with a woman who’s a medium. That was about a month, or maybe six weeks after all this stuff started to happen. We learned that a little girl died on this property," Donna told the Warrens. "She was seven years old and her name was Annabelle Higgins.

The full details of the Investigation are available on the Warrens site. I cant link directly so just go to the Investigation button and then click on Legendary Cases.
