This story comes to us via our friends at LAist. Get a load of this:
“Eight dolls have been left on the doorsteps of homes, all in a gated community called Talega, KTLA reports. In each of these homes, there lives a girl about 10 years old, and some of the girls attend the same school. According to Orange County Sheriff’s Department’s Lt. Jeff Hallock, the families say that the dolls bear an eerie resemblance to their daughters.”
LAist goes on to hope that this is the act of some kind but misguided person who just wants to give the neighborhood girls some dolls. NO THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS IS.
Hello? This is obviously the first step in a methodical series of stages that a serial killer has deemed necessary to satisfy their deranged fantasy. Has no one here read Red Dragon. Come ON!
If I lived in one of those houses and had a 10-year old daughter and a new matching doll, I would change our names and move under cover of darkness. This is a prelude! This is a warning! This is a perfect case for the lady detectives of Slow News Day!
