SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (KTLA) — Eight families in San Clemente have been targeted in a disturbing pattern under investigation by authorities: porcelain dolls have been left at their homes resembling young girls who live there.
The girls, all about 10 years old, attend the same elementary school, Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Jeff Hallock said Thursday.
Dolls crafted to resemble the students were left in front of each of the girls’ homes, Hallock said.
Three dolls were reported found in recent days and then a fourth on Wednesday, he said.
Photos provided by Hallock show two of the dolls — one in a blue dress and one in a pink dress. The latter doll was accompanied by a bunny wearing a pink bow and small white bunny slippers.
The case was under investigation.
No other information was immediately available.
