He had a huge misshapen head that was dented on one side. I did my best to draw it: pic.twitter.com/AJizlw7qXe— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
Is your apartment haunted? You may start wondering after you read about one New Yorker's ongoing saga.
T-shirt designer Adam Ellis, aka @moby_dickhead on Twitter, says he's been haunted by a dead child known as Dear David for more than a month now. His first tweet about the incident went out on August 7, and he's been updating a rapt audience of more than 400,000 followers ever since.
So, my apartment is currently being haunted by the ghost of a dead child and he's trying to kill me. (thread)— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
Ellis says he dreamed about a child at the foot of his bed while he had sleep paralysis. He says the child started crawling toward the bed, until he finally woke up screaming. In another dream, he claims a girl said to him, “You've seen Dear David haven't you? He's dead. He only appears at midnight, and you can ask him two questions if you said ‘Dear David’ first. But never try to ask him a third question, or he'll kill you.” Pretty f*cking terrifying! But it keeps going. Another night, David returned in Ellis' dreams:
In the dream, I say, "Dear David, how did you die?" He mumbles, "An accident in a store."— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
I say, "Dear David, what happened in the store?" He groans, "A shelf was pushed on my head."— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
I realize that I've asked a third question, which I'm not supposed to do. At that point, I wake up, absolutely terrified.— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
Oh shit!!! After this incident, Ellis moved into the vacant apartment above his and thought Dear David had lost track of him, until...
For the past 4 nights, my cats gather at the front door at exactly midnight & just stare at it, almost like something is on the other side. pic.twitter.com/Y8nnVLv6b4— Adam Ellis (@moby_dickhead) August 7, 2017
Ellis goes on, sharing pictures taken through his peephole, swearing he sees something on the other side, as well as creepy pictures he took on his Polaroid that kept turning out black when he shot his hallway. Eventually, he had another dream where Dear David was dragging him along, which scared him, but he got truly terrified when he realized his arm had a huge bruise on it that hadn't been there before.

It's really not over though! Ellis started getting strange calls from an unlisted number, and when he finally answered, he heard a bunch of static then a small voice say, “Hello.” That's some The Ring shit, guys. Then Ellis set up a nanny cam to take video and audio whenever anything moved in the room while he was sleeping. And he saw something strange...
