Grandma Doll Maker Has To Convince Police She’s Not A Human Trafficker
One woman’s small business almost got her sent to jail. Kathy Cadle paints and sells ‘Reborns,’ which are dolls meant to look very lifelike. Super-creepy lifelike. And recently, while talking with grandson, she was visited by a Sheffield Lake, Ohio cop this past Sunday.
Apparently, someone thought the dolls she was selling were real babies and authorities had spent the better part of the day interviewing her friends and trying to figure out if Cadle was involved in human trafficking. To which Cadle said, “Are you kidding me?”
In order to clear her name, she showed the officer one of the dolls and explained the mixup. Cadle has since been cleared.
- Cadle and her sister, Rachel Smith have had their creations in the news before. Smith’s dolls are sold as Bunny Bundles Reborns and they have been featured in magazines because the dolls are used as therapy for patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
