Creepy dolls keep washing up on Texas beaches – NBC4 Washington

It’s the stuff nightmares are made of, scary dolls and doll parts wash up on Texas beaches, and no one seems to know why.

Members of the Mission Aransas Reserve of the University of Texas Marine Science Institute find dolls, or parts of dolls, along the beaches of Padre Island.

Members of the marine research and education program post their findings on social media.

Officials say they’re not sure where the dolls came from, but they’ve been washing for a few years.

Many of the pupae have barnacles growing on them, suggesting they have been floating in the Gulf of Mexico for quite some time.

The university says all sorts of bizarre items are found during their weekly beach surveys, but the dolls seem to be the “most interesting.”
