Did You Know?


[first lines]
Lt. Rod Blake: Oh, hello. I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. You know, most kids attribute human qualities to their toys and pets and maybe believing makes it so. This doll, for instance, kept its eyes open during a crime and sent a killer up for life. Now, after all her adventures, she's going back to her young owner... or should I say, "mother". You'll meet them in a moment in case we call, "The Doll Who Couldn't Sleep".
