Person Responsible for Leaving 'Creepy' Porcelain Dolls Has Been Found

California police are reporting they have found the individual responsible for leaving “creepy” porcelain dolls at numerous homes of young girls in the southern part of the state, explained the Sheriff’s Department of Orange County on Thursday. They discovered that the perpetrator ended up being an elderly lady who had a huge collection of dolls. The police stated that she was dropping them off at the houses of elementary school aged girls only as pleasant and friendly surprises. In fact, the woman resides in the very same neighborhood and goes to church services with a lot of the girls families she presented dolls to, the police added.

The doll fan explained to California police officers that she had such a large assortment; she wanted to be free of some of them and thought the toys would bring enjoyment to the young girls. Police are now saying that basically the strange gifts were nothing more than acts of kindness. Families had started filing reports with the police about the dolls as far back as last month. At first, authorities did not have any sort of crime to investigate but the mystery started to deepen when families learned of other dolls. The police started scrutinizing the toys and also consulting with the affected families. They attempted to find patterns with the cases.

It was believed there were nearly 12 dolls left around the neighborhood at homes where young school aged girls lived. Reportedly each doll that was given away looked like the little girl it was given to. The act itself was not criminal, but police want to make sure there has not been any sort of stalking situation going on.

Police Investigators were able to get in contact with the female adult who confessed to putting the porcelain dolls outside the various homes in the area. After they finished up talking with her, they concluded that her motivation was only from goodwill and that she intended the gifts to be seen as kind gestures. Her identity has not been revealed to the public. Deputies stated that her actions were meant to be nice, not seen as creepy, but the families still took the toys that way, especially being concerned when they noticed the close resemblances that the dolls had with all their 10-year-old daughters, respectively.

Police were at first unsure if the dolls were some sort of prank or even something more sinister but they now know the real reason behind the toys being left. They stated that because of the elderly lady confessing, there would be no further investigation of the case and that it was now closed. This is because California police have found the person responsible for leaving the spooky porcelain dolls at numerous homes of young girls in the southern part of the state, explained the Sheriff’s Department of Orange County on Thursday. They discovered that the perpetrator ended up being an elderly lady who had a huge collection of dolls.

The police stated that she was dropping them off at the houses of elementary school aged girls only as pleasant and friendly surprises. In fact, the woman resides in the very same neighborhood and goes to church services with a lot of the girls families she presented dolls to, the police added.
