Creepy dolls washing ashore on Texas coast: ‘There’s a lot of nightmares out there’

Where the dolls came from is a mystery but the Mission-Aransas Reserve has been collecting the scary figures as they find them along a 40-mile stretch of coastline, Jace Tunnell, director of the Mission Aransas Reserve at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Often, researchers are surveying the coast for sea turtles and other marine mammals when they encounter the dolls on the beach.

We’re actually doing scientific work, but the dolls are a perk,” Tunnell told McClatchy News last week.
