Ed and Lorraine Warren on their son-in-laws Youtube Channel Official Ed and Lorraine Warren ChannelThe most well-known of the Warrens examinations was the home at 112 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York. In the house in 1974, Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered six members of his family with a shot gun in the middle of the night. DeFeo informed police that he shot his member of the family because voices in his head told him too, however the court discovered that he knew (and responsible for) his actions at the time of the crime.
The series is based on the works of reality Catholic couple Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were famed paranormal investigators and perhaps grifters.
One year later, George and Kathy Lutz moved into the house with their three children and pet. This story ended up being The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson, which has actually offered over 10 million copies and lead to the Amityville Horror movie franchise. William Weber, Ronald DeFeo Jr.s lawyer, claims that the whole story of the haunting experienced by the Lutzs was fabricated, stating the story was “created over numerous bottles of wine” by himself and the Lutzes and assisted along by Jay Anson and the Warrens.

This seems like something right out of a scary show. Maybe thats why The Twilight Zone consisted of a suspiciously similar story in their 5th season which aired in 1963. In the episode, titled Living Doll, a woman named Annabelle purchases her child a talking doll named “Talky Tina” that turns out to be wicked, even capable of murdering individuals around her.
The second most well-known story associated with the Warrens is that of the Annabelle doll. As they tell it, the Annabelle doll was a Raggedy Ann doll bought in 1970 by a mom for her child, a nursing student.

Due to Lorraine Warrens involvement in the Conjuring motion pictures, theyve all consisted of an agreement which precludes the filmmakers from portraying Ed or Lorraine as having an affair, having sex with a minor, having any participation with kid porn or sex employees, or as being guilty of sexual assault.
Every case the Warrens investigated were plagued by similar issues about the credibility of their stories. There was never any evidence that any haunting examined by the couple were real. There always seemed to be a cash grab or a book deal or a tv appearance in the works that might discuss away what the Warrens always firmly insisted was authentic concern for the wellbeing of others.
