SAN CLEMENTE, Calif – Authorities say eight families in the same city in southern California who found porcelain dolls left at their homes resembling young girls were the recipients of one churchgoer’s goodwill.

Eight dolls crafted to resemble the students were left in front of each of the girls’ homes, Hallock said. Word spread, and soon the dolls were being lambasted as “creepy,” some even speculating they were left behind by a sex predator.

Instead, police located the lady who left the dolls, saying she left them on the door of fellow churchgoers as a gesture of goodwill.

Authorities had concluded the investigation, the release stated.

    Anyone this day and age ever think that maybe its some old simple minded lady with a porcelain doll hobby trying to be nice and make dolls of their beautiful daughters. Jeez people go crazy over stupid stuff anymore.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. Maybe it was just someone trying to be nice. People always have to have negative thoughts about everyone else.

      Yeah but what if it isn’t a simple minded old lady? In THIS day and age there are some pretty creepy , and weird people. They are just taking the necessary precautions to kepp their children safe.

      That is exactly what my first thought was! She probably saw the little girls playing in the neighborhood, and had dolls that looked similar to them and want to give them gifts! Everyone always thinks the worst, when it could very well no be the case!

    Why would you even report that? If that happened at my home I would just assume that someone was giving us a gift…there was nothing specious about it


    The dolls are beautiful. If it were me I would want to know where it came from though. It’s creepy. If some little old lady made them she should have left a note with each doll.

    I had the same thought! But how distraught would they feel if this did turn into something sick, and all that had to happen was asking for a police officer to patrol that area on his route? It’s a sick world now.

    It would take a serious amount of time to observe the girls and find where they lived…. or…. it could be just as simple as a creepy ass male teacher- from their school…. who also can easily find their addresses. Or a creeper neighbor….
