Police use ‘Dolly Parton Challenge’ in hunt for suspects

Two UK police forces are trying to find suspects using the Dolly Parton Challenge.

The craze – started by the legendary country music star – involves posting photographs suitable for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.

In Dolly’s case, she was seen in a jacket for the LinkedIn pic, and as a bunny girl for Tinder.
