With Halloween still months away, there is something creepy happening in several cities in Missouri. Creepy dolls are showing up in strange places, with some of them being headless. People are stopping to help, thinking they are children, and realizing that they are just some really scary-looking dolls. How creepy would that be?
The dolls have been seen in Festus and Crystal City. Both are cities in Missouri. Residents report seeing these dolls near poles, on the ground, and hanging from a light pole. After some people mistook the dolls for children, the police were involved after a report was filed.

The police still don’t know who is putting these dolls out, but they say it is a dangerous prank. They say that someone could stop and try to save a child, thinking the doll is a child and get hit by a car. Police are still investigating the situation, but believe it is probably just a prank. Hopefully, they find the person doing this soon!
Often, people report seeing the dolls and then they disappear just as quickly.
According to MyMoInfo.com, Festus Captain Doug Wendel said, “Somebody thinks it’s funny, somebody thinks it’s cute, it’s all fun and games until somebody stops, thinking it’s a child in distress and gets hit trying to help out. So whoever’s doing it, we know you think it’s fun and games, but it could be a very dangerous situation.”
In 2016, a similar creepy phenomenon happened across the country. Many people in different states reported seeing creepy adult clowns by the side of the road. Police arrested several of these clowns and masks and face paint was banned at some schools. Do you remember when this happened? I actually saw one near my house and it was quite unsettling, to say the least!
What do you think of these creepy doll sightings? Kind of scary, right? Especially when it isn’t even that close to Halloween!
