Mystery solved: creepy dolls on suburban doorsteps


Residents of Orange County, California were creeped out this week when eight porcelain dolls mysteriously turned up on doorsteps in suburban neighborhoods, leading to a police investigation.

The dolls reportedly resembled the children living inside. Finally, police determined that the "culprit" was a woman who went to church with some of the families.

"Investigators have concluded that her motivation was out of goodwill and that she intended it as a kind gesture," police said.
