Police are investigating a strange case in a California community, where porcelain dolls are being left on the doorsteps of girls they hold an eerie resemblance to.

At least eight families have received the dolls in the Talega community of San Clemente, with all of the girls targeted around 10 years old.

Families began filing police reports about the dolls as early as June 16, but the mystery of their origin continues.

“It caught me by surprise,” Lt. Jeff Hallock from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department told ABC News. “It spun of control.”

“We’re trying to connect the families and the girls,” he added. “We’re trying to figure out if there is a correlation.”

Though some of the girls do attend the same school, some families don’t know each other, making it difficult for investigators to uncover who is leaving the dolls.

“The dolls were being left at these homes, but everybody thought they were the only one,” said Hallock. “When the families started communicating and put it together, they became concerned.”

Police are trying to figure out if the dolls were homemade or bought at a local retailer.

Though the situation may seem eerie, the police see no foul play.

“At this point we don’t have a specific crime,” Hallock said. “It’s very suspicious activity and we’re following up on it. We’re trying to find answers as we speak.

That is creepy as hell. I would put some hidden cameras up and watch for a repeat appearance.

Investigators Solve Mystery of Porcelain Dolls Left on Doorsteps

 

Investigators in California say they've solved a strange case involving porcelain dolls being left on the doorsteps of girls to whom they hold an eerie resemblance.

At least eight families received the dolls in the Talega community of San Clemente, with all of the girls targeted around 10 years old.

Families began filing police reports about the dolls as early as June 16. Initially, police didn’t have a crime to investigate. But as the mystery grew, and as the families learned of the other dolls, authorities began examining the dolls and meeting with the affected families, trying to find patterns.

The investigation focused on a woman who attends church with many of the families who found the dolls, according to a news release issued late Thursday by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

“Investigators made contact with the female adult who admitted to placing the porcelain dolls on the porch of the various residences in the community. Investigators have concluded that her motivation was out of goodwill and that she intended it as a kind gesture,” the news release says of the woman whom authorities have not identified.

“There will be no further investigation of this case.”

Well at least it wasn't a crazy pedo.  You'd think she could have just handed them out in church instead of being creepy.

What I would have figured at the start.  Why do people automatically assume the worse.

Stephen sat at his old-fashion typewriter late into the night ...

 

click click clickty-click

 

The parents were so relieved to learn that the dolls were a gift from a nice church lady.

 

Such a kind gesture, everyone thought.

 

Sally sat hugging her beautiful new doll, trying to think up a name ... hmm.

 

The microphone inside picking up her every sigh.

 

"Time for your bath, Sally", mom called.

 

"OK mommy."

 

Sally sat the doll down carefully in the chair, smiling happily.

 

She slowly undressed herself as the camera in the eye of the blue-eyed doll recorded her every move ...
