Following the suspicious
deaths of some of her playmates in a NY tenement, police attempted to
interview Jane.The young girl went crazy, accused her doll of the
murders and threw the doll out of her 5th floor apartment window
while screaming, "Bad dolly! Naughty dolly!"
Jane was taken to
Bloomingdale Asylum to be treated for hysteria. She never left the
institution, dying an old woman in 1968. What happened to the doll
remains a mystery.
