Some people also claimed that they have seen Dolls walking and Talking.
Story of Island
The owner of the Island speaking about the haunted place said, “In 1950 a girl was swimming with her sister or friends and the current took and she drowned,” said Rogelio Sanchez Santana, the current “guardian of the dolls” and a great nephew of Barrera. Santana was a neighbor of the Barrio de la Asunción, where he used to go to drink pulque after selling his vegetables until he began preaching the Bible due to superstitions which led to him being expelled from the sector.
Santana claimed to have heard the girl crying out "I want my doll" and terrified, hung up the doll he found near the girl's body. After the event, every time he went outside, he claims to have found a new doll hanging from one of the trees. He later died in the same spot the girl drowned. Many believe that his death was caused by the girl's spirit, which still haunts the island.
