CREEPY life-sized dolls of kids were discovered in Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch during a 2003 police raid.
Sickening pictures of the lifelike figures that the Thriller star stashed inside his home were snapped when he was being investigated for alleged child molestation.
Splash News Police found Michael Jackson’s creepy collection of life-size child dolls at his Neverland Ranch
Splash News Investigators took the creepy pictures during a raid on the Neverland Ranch in 2003
The terrifying collection was found in a cluttered room filled with Disney memorabilia and children’s toys.
Seven years after his death in 2009, images and footage of the Santa Barbara police raid were released to the public.
The 2003 raid apparently enabled cops to discover a hidden room behind a false wall in his closet, and a bizarre collection of toys, books and magazines.
The childlike mannequins were believed to have been dressed by Jackson in denim jackets and sneakers.
Some of the dolls were positioned as if they were talking to each other.
One of the creepy mannequins was set up to do a shoulder stand on top of a giant red and gold throne.
“DON’T LEAVE ME ALONE IN THE HOUSE”
The international superstar also displayed a signed picture of Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin.
His message read: “Don’t leave me alone in the house.”
Much of the Disney merchandise was from the animated film Peter Pan.
Jackson named his mansion after the fantasy island from JM Barrie’s tale, where children never grow up.
The singer also seemed to be a big fan of actress Shirley Temple as he owned a cardboard cut-out of Temple as a child, as well as a number of pictures of the “Bright Eyes” star.
Many books and documents found by police in 2003 were used in the infamous trial of Michael Jackson.
Police said that there were at least seven collections of pictures of nude or partially clothed boys in their teens.
Jackson turned himself into police after an arrest warrant was made.
An investigator told Radar Online: “He had disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism.”
He continued: “Based on my training, this type of material can be used as part of the “grooming” process, by which people (those seeking to molest children) lower the inhibitions of their intended victims and facilitate the molestation of said victims.”
Santa Barbara District Attorney Ron Zonen added: “A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time.”
He told Radar: “We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse.”
However, Jackson was acquitted of seven counts of child molestation and two felony counts of providing an intoxicant to a minor under the age of 14 in 2005.
He was put on trial after 13-year-old cancer survivor Gavin Arvizo came forward to allege that Jackson had molested him.
The singer’s estate later slammed Radar’s report of the raid, saying in a statement: “Michael Jackson’s fans, including the Executors of his estate, prefer to remember the wonderful gifts Michael left behind instead of having to once again see his good name dragged through the mud.”
The late King of Pop is currently at the centre of an explosive new documentary, Leaving Neverland, a two-part film airing on Channel 4 next month.
It focuses on the alleged abuse experienced by Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who were befriended by Jackson when they were little boys and allegedly abused by him until they reached puberty at 14.
However, the Michael Jackson estate has sent a letter to the station, warning that the controversial documentary violates the network’s programming guidelines.
It states that Leaving Neverland makes no attempt at getting a response to the accusers from Jackson’s estate, family, friends or others who have defended his reputation as set out in the channel’s standards for factual programming and journalistic ethics.
Channel 4 replied in a statement that allegations against Jackson are rebutted in the documentary by denials that Jackson made during his lifetime.
It says the broadcast meets Britain’s official broadcasting code by providing these denials.
“On this occasion the person against whom the significant allegations are being made is deceased. It is therefore appropriate that his denials during life are included in the programme,” the station said.
ESTATE SUING HBO FOR £76.8m
And yesterday, the star’s estate announced it was suing HBO over the documentary, saying the film violates a 1992 contract to air a Jackson concert, reports Associated Press.
The suit is seeking a public arbitration process with HBO, and says that damages could surpass £76.8million ($100m).
The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court alleges that by co-producing and airing Leaving Neverland, as HBO intends to do next month, the cable channel is breaching a deal to not disparage the singer.
The decades-old contract allowed the cable network to air “Michael Jackson in Concert in Bucharest: The Dangerous Tour” and included language that HBO would not disparage Jackson at any future point.

According to the suit, the film implies Jackson molested children on the very tour that the concert footage came from.
AP reports that the suit says: “It is hard to imagine a more direct violation of the non-disparagement clause.”
