A Killer is Luring Victims to the Front Door by Using the Sound of a Crying BabyFiction!

Summary of eRumor:

A woman allegedly called police to tell them there was a crying baby at her door.
The police warned her not to go outside and said that a killer had been using a recording of a baby’s cry to get women to open their doors and come outside.

The Truth:

There is no evidence this is happening or has ever happened.
One curious thing about people who fabricate Internet rumors is how unrealistic they can be.
If most of us heard a baby crying on our front porch, we would immediately go investigate it, not leave the baby crying and call the police.
