Robert Eugene Otto was given a doll by a voodoo priestess who was not pleased with his family. He was but a child and the doll looked just like him. Eugene named him Robert and as he grew up Robert stayed with him at his side. When he would get into trouble he would blame the doll but no one really believed him. Robert never left Eugene’s side.
When he was married, his wife Anne did not like the doll. She said that it looked evil from the moment that she saw him. She placed him in an attic and Eugene said that the doll was mad so he was given his own room in the house. Eugene placed the doll in the window to watch the children play. The children would say that they saw him pace back and forth and had an angry look on his face.
When Eugene would get mad, he would blame it on Robert. He would fly into fits and then he would calm very suddenly. Even people who visited the house would run away in fear. One time a plumber said he heard the doll giggle. He quickly left and never returned. Visitors claimed that Robert’s expression changed when they looked at him and even looked like pure evil.
Eugene died with Robert the doll. The wife fled the house and left the doll there. The new owners were spooked by him and sent him to the Fort East Martello Museum as a tribute to his owner who was a well know artist at that time.
Robert Eugene was born in 1900 and died in 1974. The doll sits at the entrance of the museum and his hair becomes whiter and whiter. Many claim it is his soul aging.
Robert is the doll that the movie Child’s Play was based on.
