A serial mannequin snatcher is being sought by authorities in Kilgore, Texas. No, this isn't a joke, as funny as it seems. Shop owners in the area are on edge and at least one of them is genuinely freaked out by this situation. What's next; serial dummy murder?! Will people start finding the discarded parts of these figures throughout the country in a display of macabre symbolism? You just can't make this stuff up, people.
Someone broke into the Kilgore Historical Preservation Society on Kilgore Street this past Monday displaying either copycat behavior or full-out serial tendencies. This is the second time in a month that someone has broken into an establishment to steal a mannequin. What's interesting is the dummy was blonde and petite in both cases. Also a small barbel was used to break windows in both break-ins.
Maybe this person saw one too many '80s movies about attractive dummies coming to life to fulfill his (or even her) sexual pleasures? Perhaps this person is just being a prankster? Keep your eyes peeled just in case you see someone waking up in a mattress store next to one of these beauties, because that might be the culprit!
