Photos Appear on My phone that arent mine

I have 796 photos that have been in my photo album since I got the phone. I have no idea where they came from. They aren't mine, they aren't on my computer, they aren't on my media backup, only on my phone, and it wont allow me to delete them. Please help!

Hi mic_tastic!

It seems as if your phone may have been it's own photographer! what you describe is very unusual, and I'd very much like to figure it out for you. Did you get your phone when it was new? If not, it could be the photos of the previous owner and only appear with their Apple ID. Were all 796 photos on the phone at the time you got it, or did they increase over time? Please supply some details so we can get to the bottom of this for you!
