Jaycee Dugard found ALIVE/Phillip Garrido Sentenced To Life In Prison

Post by FystyAngel on Thu Aug 27, 2009 2:12 pm

Jaycee Dugard found ... according to Jaycee Dugard: Kidnap victim walked into station, say cops




Carl and Terry Probyn, the parents of 11-yr-old kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard (below), console each other on spot where their daughter was abducted.




LOS ANGELES - A California girl snatched by kidnappers almost two decades ago miraculously has been found alive, cops said today.

Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was 11 years old when she was abducted from in front of her South Lake Tahoe home in 1991, walked into a police station in suburban San Francisco Wednesday and identified herself.

The woman believed to be Dugard is now 29.

ABC News reported that Philllip and Nancy Garrido, of Concord, Calif., have been charged with kidnapping to commit rape. They are behind bars on $1 million bail, court records said.

Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department insisted no one had been charged in the case yet.

"Since the date of occurrence the investigation has been ongoing and today's events could bring it to resolution," Lt. Bryan Golmitz of the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department said.

Elated mom Terry Probyn was en route from her Southern California home to meet with her daughter after speaking with her briefly on the phone.

"Jaycee remembers everything," Carl Probyn, her stepfather, told CNN. "They talked back and forth and she had the right answers to all my wife's questions."

"I would say it's a 99 percent chance it's her. I'm feeling great!" he said. "It's like winning the lotto."

Authorities are withholding further details until a press conference set for 3 p.m. today.

Dugard was snatched from in front of her home near the Nevada state line on June 10, 1991.

A vehicle with two people inside drove up to Jaycee Dugard as she waited for at a school bus stop.

They bundled her into the vehicle and drove off as her horrified stepfather watched.

The kidnapping terrified the small community and led to a massive manhunt.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials said Thursday they believe a woman who walked into a police station had been kidnapped as an 11-year-old in 1991 outside her South Lake Tahoe home.

The woman came into the Concord police station and said she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, the victim of the abduction 18 years ago, said sheriff's Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado Sheriff's Department.

"We're 99 percent sure it's her," Lovell said. He said DNA tests were being conducted. It was not immediately clear when she had surfaced at the station.

Lovell said Concord police did an investigation after the woman surfaced, and he received a call Wednesday from investigators who had tentatively identified her as Dugard.

"Her family has been contacted and they are in the process of arranging" a meeting, said Lovell, who was a detective assigned to help investigate the kidnapping in 1991. "We are very confident at this point in time that it is her."

Witnesses reported that a vehicle with two people drove up to Dugard and abducted her while her stepfather was watching on June 10, 1991, the Sheriff's Department said in a news release Thursday.

The investigation has been ongoing since she was abducted

Lovell said two people are in custody in connection with the case, but he could not elaborate.

The sheriff's department has scheduled a news conference to discuss the case later Thursday.

Timeline: Jaycee Lee Dugard kidnapping
http://www.rgj.com/article/20090827/NEWS/90827009/1321/NEWS


Jaycee Lee Dugard’s kidnapping from her South Lake Tahoe bus stop 18 years ago quickly became one of the area’s most high profile crimes, the tragedy of which gripped the community as detectives searched for leads that remained scarce for nearly two decades. Here’s a timeline of the case:

June 11, 1991: Jaycee Lee is snatched just 1,500 feet from her home by a couple driving a gun-metal gray sedan. Her step-father Carl Probyn witnessed the kidnapping from his garage and attempted to chase the couple on his bicycle.

June 12, 1991: Clutching her daughter’s stuffed pink bunny rabbit, Jaycee Lee’s mother Terry Probyn goes before reporters and television cameras to plead for her daughter’s safe return. A car fitting the description of the suspect’s vehicle, with a young girl sleeping in the back seat, is spotted at Fallen Leaf Lake.

June 14, 1991: The case is profiled on America’s Most Wanted, resulting in hundreds of tips to police.

Aug. 10, 1991: More than 250 people hold a candlelight vigil to show support for Jaycee Lee and her family.

Aug. 24, 1991: The FBI questions two suspects in Ceres, Calif., just south of Modesto, but find no connection to the case.

Nov. 25, 1991: People Magazine profiles the kidnapping in a three-page spread.

Jan. 1992: A Gardnerville musician records a song “Jaycee Lee” to help raise money for the search.

June 10, 1992: A candlelight vigil is held to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Jaycee Lee’s disappearance. In the months since the kidnapping, her friends and family have mailed more than 1.2 million photos of Jaycee Lee across the country.

June 10, 2001: More than 100 people bearing pink ribbons in honor of Jaycee Lee’s favorite color march down U.S. Highway 50 in South Lake Tahoe to mark the 10-year anniversary of her disappearance.

June 2002: Investigators dig up the yard of a Truckee priest accused of molesting three girls in the 1970s, searching for clues to Jaycee Lee’s disappearance and that of another girl who had gone missing in Northern California. No connection is found.

Kidnapped California child returns as woman
Update at 1:14 p.m. ET: The Sacramento Bee reports that authorities have confirmed that the woman who walked into a police station is Jaycee Dugard, who was kidnapped in 1991 when she was 11. Authorities plan a news conference at 6 p.m. ET. "It's like winning the Lotto," said Dugard's stepfather, who said he remained under suspicion all these years.

A woman kidnapped 18 years ago from her California home has reportedly surfaced in Concord, Calif., the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Jaycee Dugard, who would be 29 today, apparently walked into the Concord Police Department on Wednesday, the Chronicle says. A news conference is scheduled for today.

Two people have been taken into custody, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says.

The blue-eyed, blond 11-year-old was last seen on June 10, 1991, as she walked to a bus stop in South Lake Tahoe. The Chronicle reports that her stepfather watched helplessly from the family's driveway on a hill about two blocks away when a two-tone gray sedan pulled up and someone yanked the girl into the car and sped off.

Even though officers responded within minutes, no trace of the car or girl was ever found.

Dugard's mother was on her way from her Southern California home for a reunion with her daughter, the Chronicle reports. We'll keep an eye on this.

Calif. Girl Kidnapped 18 Years Ago Found Alive
Jaycee Lee Dugard's Stepfather Says FBI Claims To Have People Responsible For Her Disapperance


The El Dorado County Sheriff's Department says a little girl kidnapped from South Lake Tahoe in 1991 has been found alive and in good health. Yesterday, a woman claiming to be Jaycee Lee Dugard showed up at a police station in Contra Costa County. This morning, the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department confirms a man and woman are in custody in relation to the case.

Dugard's mother, Terry Probyn is flying to Northern California from her home in Southern California to meet with Jaycee.

CBS station KOVR-TV in Sacramento spoke with Dugard's stepfather Carl Probyn, who says the FBI facilitated a phone call between the woman in Concord and Dugard's mother Terry who now lives in Riverside County. According to Carl Probyn, this woman walked into a Bay Area police station identifying herself as Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was 11-years-old at the time of her disappearance.

The El Dorado County Sheriff's Department has announced they will hold a press conference Thursday to discuss the high-profile kidnapping case from 1991.

Dugard was kidnapped the morning of June 10, 1991, while walking from her home to a school bus stop in Meyers. Her stepfather said he watched a stranger pull up and yank Jaycee Lee into a two toned gray sedan as she kicked and screamed. Probyn believed a man and woman were in the vehicle. Although there were several false sightings, Dugard was never seen again.
KOVR-TV investigated the cold case in 2003 when there was renewed hope Dugard may be alive. There were several similarities to the Elizabeth Smart case out of Utah. Smart and Dugard resemble one another. Both girls were abducted in the month of June, 11 years apart. One of Smart's alleged captors, Wanda Barzee resembled the female captor in the composite sketch in Dugard's case. Dugard was kidnapped near Highway 50 which leads to Salt Lake City.

Smart was abducted from her Salt Lake City bedroom on June 5, 2002 at the age of 14. She was found alive nine months later about 18 miles from her home. Smart's alleged captors, Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Barzee have yet to go before a jury in the disappearance after being found incompetent to stand trial. Mitchell reportedly thought God told him Smart should be his second wife.

In May of 2003, shortly after Smart was reunited with her family, Dugard's mother Terry Probyn, neighbors, and investigators took a look at the possibility the cases were connected. Probyn told KOVR-TV she was praying her daughter was still alive, and questioned whether Dugard could've been kidnapped by religious cult members. Although El Dorado County Detectives reached out to the Salt Lake City investigators in the Smart case, the Dugard case remained cold.

South Lake Tahoe woman missing 18 years surfaces in Concord, two arrested

CONCORD — Jaycee Dugard, who has been missing from her South Lake Tahoe home for 18 years, has surfaced in Concord, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office. Two people have been arrested in the case.

Jaycee Dugard, now 29, was abducted in Meyers, in El Dorado County, on June 10, 1991 as her stepfather watched helplessly. The case was cold for nearly 20 years as investigators struggled to make headway into what had happened to the girl. National talk shows like "Geraldo" intermittently brought attention back to the disappearance.

A husband and wife have been arrested in connection with the case and booked into County Jail in Martinez. Phillip Garrido, 58, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy, kidnapping, rape, lewd acts with a minor, and sexual penetration. His wife, Nancy, has been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and kidnapping. Both are being held on $1 million bail.

Garrido is a registered sex offender stemming from a prior rape conviction. El Dorado sheriff's deputies and FBI agents served a search warrant this morning at the Garridos' home in Antioch.

Further details about the reappearance were expected from the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department at a press conference on the case later today.

A woman claiming to be Dugard walked into the Concord Police Department on Wednesday afternoon. Dugard's stepfather, Carl Probyn, said Dugard's mother, Terry Probyn, spoke with the woman and is en route to

Quantcast
Northern California from her Riverside County home.

Carl Probyn told Bay Area News Group this morning that he got a call from his wife shortly after the news of Dugard's reappearance.

"She said, 'They found Jaycee. She's alive,'" Carl Probyn said. "We cried for about two minutes."

After the woman appeared at the police station, an FBI agent called Terry Probyn and put her on the phone with Jaycee, Carl Probyn said. At first, Terry Probyn thought it was a joke, but then the two women had a conversation that convinced her that she was talking to her missing daughter, he said.

"She believes it was her," Carl Probyn said. "She said Jaycee remembers everything."

Carl Probyn had watched in 1991 as a man and a woman drove by and snatched up Dugard as she walked to a bus stop near their home. He said he is thrilled at the prospect of his stepdaughter being found alive.

"It's like winning the Lotto," Carl Probyn said. "You never dream after 18 years you'll get her back."

It took too long, but it is still amazing news. I hope we get a similar outcome with Haleigh Cummings, and I hope it doesn't take 18 years.

Sheriff: Kidnap victim found alive 18 years later
Jaycee Lee Dugard was 11 when she was abducted near South Lake Tahoe



An undated screenshot shows an FBI flyer for Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped in California in 1991. Dugard reappeared after 18 years and got in touch with the police in Concord in northern California.


SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A woman who was 11 years old when she was abducted in 1991 on her way to school in South Lake Tahoe has been located alive and in good health, sheriff's officials said Thursday.

Media reports said the woman walked into a police station in Antioch and then was taken to the Concord police station on Wednesday. She told police she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, the victim of the abduction 18 years ago, said sheriff's Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado Sheriff's Department.

"We're 99 percent sure it's her," Lovell said. He said DNA tests were being conducted.

NEW YORK (CBS) According to a Thursday press conference by California law enforcement officials, Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped at the age of 11 in 1991, has been kept in a rudimentary shed in the backyard of her captors for the last 18 years and forced to bear two children at the hands of Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender on lifetime federal parole.

Photos: Jaycee Lee Durgard Found Alive

According to El Dorado County Under Sherriff Fred Kollar, Nancy Garrido was with her husband, Philip Garrido, 58, when he kidnapped Dugard while the girl was waiting for a school bus in 1991.

Since then the girl has been forced to live in a "backyard within a backyard" that was accessible only through a series of tarps and sheds, which were erected to make Dugard and her children both unseen and unheard, said Kollar.

I heard on HLN that Jaycee also has two children with her kidnapper. Did I hear that correctly? Also that they all had to live in the back yard. No one went to school or to the doctor. How horrific!

OMG...thank you guys for this update. It's unbelievable she's been found alive. Yet, so horrific at what her life has been in these new breaking details. 18 years of abuse, having to bear this rapist's children and living as a captive. My heart breaks for her and the children. Thank God for the window out that she was somehow able to walk into that police station. Imagine the pain and suffering her mother has gone through all of these years, wondering. Now she can hold and hug her baby again, I wish them well.

Prison officials said Garrido admitted the kidnapping after meeting with his parole officer. He brought Dugard and the two children, ages 11 and 15, to the meeting.

Garrido and his wife Nancy Garrido, 54, were arrested for investigation of kidnapping and conspiracy on Wednesday, police said.

Phillip Garrido is also being held for investigation of rape by force, lewd and lascivious acts with a minor and sexual penetration, said Jimmie Lee, a spokesman for the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department.

Phillip Garrido was sentenced to 50 years in prison and served nearly 11 years in a federal prison for a federal kidnapping conviction, said Suzanne Pardee, a spokeswoman for Nevada state prisons.

He also served seven months in a Nevada prison for a conviction of rape by force or fear. Pardee said Garrido was paroled in August 1988.

Dugard was in good health when she came into a San Francisco Bay area station. She was reunited Thursday with her mother, who was overjoyed to learn the ordeal was over and the daughter she feared dead was actually alive and well.

El Dorado County Undersheriff Fred Kollar said barriers had been built to "inhibit outside viewing and prevent the victims from contact with the outside world."

The walls were even soundproofed.

Police, however, had been told about the backyard lair before, according to a former neighbor.

Erika Pratt said that two years ago, she called police after seeing what looked like a living compound with tents and sheds.

Sheriff's deputies came to ask questions, Pratt said, but told her that because they didn't have a warrant, they couldn't search the house.

"I always wished someone could do something about it," Pratt said. "It was like he was charging people to live there."

SACRAMENTO, Calif. --
A sex offender accused of fathering two children with a girl he kidnapped in 1991 claims his life "has been straightened out" and implored people to wait until they hear the whole story of what happened at a Bay Area home over the past 18 years.

Phillip Craig Garrido, 58, is accused of taking Jaycee Lee Dugard from her home in the El Dorado County community of Meyers when she was 11 years old.

If you go to the second link, you can listen to an interview with Garrido. He is obviously delusional.

Hi, Fysty! hug Yes, you heard correctly. That poor woman has two children fathered by that pervert. Apparently, she & her children were kept in the back yard all that time. That monster should be castrated. This story is so incredible, and horrifying at the same time. awe affraid Shocked barf I really cannot understand how this monster's wife could allow such a thing to happen? She needs to be locked up for the rest of her miserable life, along with her pig of a husband. Mad Evil or Very Mad

I'm still trying to get this whole story straight in my mind. I wish more details would be released; like WHY would he have them out handing out flyers? Did he want to get caught?
I just saw a clip of Elizabeth Smart with her father on HLN and what a beautiful girl she is now. She seems to have "adjusted" to her tragedy.
Miracles do happen, as proven by this story. But can you imagine all the therapy, etc. it will take for these people to move on with their lives? These two children have never even been to school or to a doctor???
The children, fathered by the man who abducted this young beautiful girl, will forever be a reminder to Jaycee of what her life was like all these years. I pray they can all get the help they need and have productive lives.

mimi4all! It's so good to see you!!

I'm sure it will be a very, very slow process to bring Jaycee and the young girls into a sense of normal life. I only have to hope that he did not inflict his deviant sexual abuse on the two little girls. Hopefully, they were spared from that at least. I cannot imagine the joy in Jaycee's mother's heart to have her daughter with her again after all these years of pure hell wondering where her baby was and what happened to her. I wish them well and hope all the support in the world is there for them.
This freak of nature had obviously convinced himself that at this point in time no one would figure him out. After 18 years of controlling Jaycee, then the girls being 11 and 15, only knowing him all of their lives. He was delusional in thinking he could walk in broad daylight with them as his "family". Thank God, he did though. They were standing there handing out religious phamplets for a reason, to be found. Things like that were just meant to be.

How does somebody who just raped again, after spending ten years in prison for kidnapping and rape, serve less than a year in prison? What exactly was supposed to deter him from committing further crimes? They really need to start making the punishments fit the crimes.

Why would someone only serve less than a year on a sentence of 5 years to life? When my daughter was murdered if the judge gave him not less than 15, nor more than 20 years, he would have to do the 15 before he was eligible for parole. He was sentenced to not less than 20, nor more than 20 years, the judge thought he would do the full 20 years.

But, he was released after 8 years, and had supervised parole for the balance of the sentence. I have no respect for the court system, as they make sure the perp gets all the breaks and has all the rights, and the victims and their family get nothing.

The perps do seem to get all the breaks c4c, and that is a tragic miscarriage of justice. I'm so sorry to hear that the guy who murdered your daughter didn't fully pay for his crime. He should have never seen the outside of a prison again for the rest of his life.

Ex-schoolmate, teacher joyful at Jaycee Dugard's survival
By Peter Hecht
Sacramento Bee
Posted: 08/29/2009 10:54:12 PM PDT

MEYERS — The news that Jaycee Lee Dugard was alive brought her former teacher back to the fifth-grade classroom of 1991 where scared children faithfully maintained the desk, books and pencils of a kidnapped girl and wrote letters to her — wherever she might have been.

On Wednesday, at a Bay Area parole office, Dugard revealed her identity — and her torturous story: The 29-year-old woman was the shy 11-year-old who once sat near the front of Sue Bush's classroom at Meyers Elementary School near South Lake Tahoe.

She was the girl, abducted on the way to school in 1991, whose disappearance traumatized a community. She was the girl who left people wondering in sadness, so many years later, what might have happened to her.

Thursday, she was the source of joy — and more wonder — for those who knew young Jaycee or came to know her story. Most weren't yet aware of the circumstances of her alleged captivity with a sex offender with whom she had two children.

Here is a link to a bunch of pictures of the backyard where Jaycee was held hostage. It looks like she had messy, horrible living conditions.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2009/aug/30/jaycee-lee-dugard-kidnap-usa

Here is an interesting article that says the police are checking into a possible link between Garrido and the unsolved murders of nine women during the 1990s. The bodies were found near an area where Garrido had been working.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/aug/30/jaycee-lee-dugard-phillip-garrido

That is the first I have read of a possible link between Phillip Garrido and nine murdered women. I don't think there was anything in those cases that pointed towards Garrido, but the police are probably exercising due diligence by checking into Garrido's possible involvement.

Jaycee Lee Dugard's prison: First pictures of filthy backyard jail where religious fanatic held kidnapped girl

Post by FystyAngel on Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:42 am

Jaycee Lee Dugard's prison: First pictures of filthy backyard jail where religious fanatic held kidnapped girl
By Sharon Churcher In Antioch, California and Peter Sheridan In Los Angeles
Last updated at 2:13 PM on 30th August 2009

These extraordinary pictures are the first glimpse inside the squalid back garden compound where Jaycee Lee Dugard was kept captive for 18 years.
A hand-painted 'Welcome' sign leads the way to a rundown world of tattered tents and outbuildings amid overgrown trees and bushes.
Police are now investigating evidence that Jaycee was 'brainwashed' by the religious fanatic who snatched her when she was 11.

Prison camp: A child's deckchair stands with two adult chairs in a dusty yard beside a collection of pot plants. Empty cans, a vase and an old saucepan lie discarded in front of a decrepit tent. Inside the tent is evidence of a cat lover - a row of books about cats, several cat toys and a 1,000-piece jigsaw entitled Cats

The first words Jaycee said to her mother when the pair were tearfully reunited were: 'Hi Mom, I have babies,' it has emerged.

The 29-year-old's stepfather also claims that she had developed a powerful emotional bond with her abductor, Phillip Garrido. Carl Probyn said: 'Jaycee has strong feelings with this guy. She feels it's almost like a marriage.'

No place like home: A hand-made 'Welcome' sign hangs from a tree at the rear of secret backyard where Jaycee Dugard and her daughters lived in sheds, tents and outbuildings. The innocence of the scene is underlined by three decorations, apparently a bell, a butterfly and a dove, under the sign. The trees and shrubs helped to conceal the backyard from neighbours

Experts have pointed out that although the makeshift compound where Jaycee and the two daughters allegedly fathered by Garrido lived included an 8ft by 4ft steel cage, it appeared unused. And Jaycee and the girls, aged 15 and 11, were allowed to play in the garden, in view of neighbours.

Her captor claimed to be a minister of a 'church' he called God's Desire and indoctrinated her with self-published religious tracts.
Jaycee never appealed for help, despite his repeated assaults. She is still undergoing extensive medical and psychological tests at a secret location in Northern California, where she is staying with her mother, Terry, and a half-sister under FBI protection.
One of America's leading hostage experts, retired FBI agent Clint Van Zandt, said: 'The relationship that can develop between hostages and kidnap victims and their captors is now known as "the Stockholm Syndrome", a type of emotional bonding that is in reality a survival strategy for victims of emotional and physical abuse.'


Chilling: One of the most ominous sights in the earth-floored compound is an 8ft by 4ft wire cage, half draped with a tarpaulin. It is not clear what use the cage might have been put to. Next to it is a crudely built hut with white sliding doors with two black metal clasps which suggest that it could be opened only from the outside. The hut was largely empty

A source close to the case said: 'The initial findings are that physically she is remarkably healthy but that some type of brainwashing clearly occurred.
'There were moments in the 18 years when she could have called attention to who she was.
'She hadn't forgotten her real identity. In fact, she remembers a remarkable amount about her old life. But from what we know so far about Mr Garrido, it seems he played mind games with her.
'It sounds simplistic, but the real prison was her brain.'


Chaos: The scene inside one of the dingy sheds. On the left is a microwave oven, catfood in a plastic container and two hanging vegetable baskets. The rest of the area seems to have been used as an office. There are three old swivel chairs and a reading lamp on a small table strewn with papers. The floor and shelves are covered in files, boxes and bric-a-brac

Jaycee may also have been forced to take part in orgies in the backyard where she was held, the News of the World reports.

A neighbour said he saw men lining up in Garrido's garden, before entering the tents 'one by one'.
Mike Rogers, 49, told the newspaper that he once peered through the garden fence during an 'excessively loud' party next door.
'What I saw was not normal,' he said. 'Eight to 10 men, mostly Mexican, would gather in a line in his garden drinking beer, yelling and screaming and swearing.

'They normally had a bonfire and I saw them entering the tent one by one. On a number of occasions I saw them bobbing up and down through the window and I thought, 'My God, there is something sexual going on in there'.


Toys and games: Two fluffy Furbies, an electronic toy from the Nineties, sit on a pile of computer discs next to a computer joy stick. The toys were robots which could speak. Many toys were scattered around the site, including Barbie dolls with limbs and heads missing. There were several threadbare teddy bears but little evidence of teenage culture such as pop posters

'I thought they had a prostitute or something in there. I thought it might have been some kind of sex party or something.
'I just hope that sicko wasn't pimping out Jaycee or those children. The thought makes me sick.'
But, despite being disturbed by what he had seen, Mr Rogers said he didn't think he had enough evidence to call police.

'I'd told my brother about the parties and he agreed that unless they got really out of control I should keep out of it,' he said.


Self help: This book has a particularly ironic title, given the circumstances of its discovery. The author, Jean Illsley Clarke, is an American expert in family relationships. Self-Esteem: A Family Affair, which came out in 1998, sought to help parents increase the confidence and happiness of their children by the subtle use of encouragement

Jaycee's stepfather Mr Probyn, who is being briefed regularly on the case, has disclosed that she is racked by 'guilt' because she 'bonded' with Garrido.
Her formal education ceased when Garrido allegedly snatched her in 1991 and Mr Probyn said he has been informed that her 'emotional age' is still that of an 11-year-old.
'She didn't try to get away,' he told The Mail on Sunday. 'It probably kept her alive. If she had been really spunky and fought and tried to escape, maybe she would have been killed.'


Poignant playthings: A teddy bear lies abandoned on a trampoline in the parched area that acted as a playground. Just visible in the background is a yellow slide and a set of swings. Behind that can be glimpsed the wall of an empty swimming pool

Meanwhile Garrido's first victim, Katherine Callaway of Las Vegas, Nevada, who was kidnapped, raped repeatedly and held as a sex slave by Garrido in 1976, said: 'He's a monster.'
Callaway was a 25-year-old casino worker when Garrido hitched a ride in her car. He made her drive to a warehouse in Reno that had been prepared as a 'sex palace'.
Police now believe Katherine's abduction was, essentially, a 'trial run' for the kidnapping of Jaycee in South Lake Tahoe, California, years later.
Just as he built a labyrinthine backyard prison for Jaycee, Garrido created a makeshift cell for Katherine in the warehouse. It contained a movie projector, sex toys, a spotlight, wine and pornographic magazines.
At his trial, there was testimony that he used handcuffs to restrain her and that he used LSD, cocaine and cannabis.
Retired Reno police detective Dan DeMaranville, who worked on the case, said: 'I asked him after he confessed why he did it and he said it was the only way he could get sexual satisfaction.'
However, investigators have found no evidence that Jaycee - who was less than half Callway's age - was physically restrained.


Make-up for a captive: A stained flower-patterned box which might hold make-up or jewellery sits on a table in one hut. Three plastic boxes of cheap make-up and a hair brush lie on the table. A number of girls' hairbands have been wound around the brush handle


Tales of escape: Fantasy novel Shadow Bridge lies on a worn bedside cabinet. The 2008 book features an orphaned female puppeteer who travels through a mythical land of bridges, meeting strange characters. Also visible is another fantasy novel, A Game Of Thrones



A few years after Jaycee was kidnapped, her desperate grandmother visited a psychic. 'I wanted to find out if she was still alive,' said Wilma Probyn, 83.
'I didn't want to give up hope, but it was agonising to keep holding on. We had pretty much given up hope. The psychic said that Jaycee was alive, in Northern California with a couple, living happily and being looked after and going to school.
'It turns out she was alive but not happy. She didn't go to school and wasn't allowed to see a doctor.
'She was kept caged in an old shed for 18 years without contact with anybody, raped, and she's got two children by that creep, a sexual predator.
'We've always been hoping for the day when she'd be found but when I found out how she'd lived for the last 18 years, I wasn't happy. It's a shock.
'I'm delighted to have Jaycee back, but I'm saddened by how she was treated, living in squalor like that.
'Jaycee's 29 now but she's been cut off from the world since she was 11. We don't know if she'll ever be able to recover from this.'


Tales of horror: The main author among these battered paperbacks is Dean Koontz, whose novels often feature sociopathic monsters. Crime novels by Patricia Cornwell and James Patterson and romances by Danielle Steel are also visible

Garrido's Ex Recalls Life With 'Monster'

(Aug. 31) -- Phillip Garrido, the California man accused of kidnapping 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard and turning her into a sex slave, was an abusive control freak who once tried to gouge his first-wife's eyes out with a safety pin, the woman says.
Christine Murphy, who was Garrido's high school sweetheart and first wife, told the syndicated TV show 'Inside Edition' that he attacked her once when another man flirted with her.

Police find no link between Garrido, slayings
Jaycee Dugard’s alleged kidnapper was suspect in 1990s prostitute killings




updated 9:58 a.m. ET, Wed., Sept . 2, 2009

PITTSBURG, Calif. - Police in the Northern California city of Pittsburg say they have found no evidence to connect kidnapping suspect Phillip Garrido or his wife to several unsolved murders.

Following Jaycee Lee Dugard's reappearance last week after 18 years missing, Pittsburg police focused on Garrido in connection to the slayings of prostitutes in the 1990s.

Police spokesman Lt. Brian Addington said after four days of searching Garrido's house, backyard and a neighbor's yard, they found no clear link.

Addington said authorities will have to conduct further forensic examination on a few items they found to completely rule them out as evidence.

Authorities said Monday they found one small bone fragment in the neighbor's yard but did not know whether it was human.

Meanwhile, the Department of Corrections says it's reviewing its procedures after agency officials failed to detect that Dugard and two girls were allegedly living with Garrido, who is a registered sex offender.

Department spokesman Gordon Hinkle said Tuesday the agency is looking into the matter.

Garrido and his wife Nancy have pleaded not guilty to abducting Dugard and holding her captive in their backyard for 18 years.

Agents routinely knocked on the Garridos' front door during parole checks after Phillip Garrido was released from prison in 1988 for kidnap and rape.

Victim of kidnap accused speaks out
SAM STANTON AND KIM MINUGH, SACRAMENTO
September 3, 2009

KATIE Callaway was just going to stop for a minute to pick up some coffee for her boyfriend.

The 25-year-old blackjack dealer from Tahoe City, California, picked up the coffee, some cooking oil and rice and slipped back into her car, then began to back out. That was when Phillip Garrido tapped on the passenger window and asked for a ride.

It was November 22, 1976, and Katherine Gayle Callaway was about to begin a terrifying, night-long ordeal at the hands of a man who has become infamous worldwide since his arrest last week in the 1991 kidnapping of 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard.



In the 18 years that Garrido allegedly hid Dugard in the backyard of his mother's home in the town of Antioch, he was largely a mystery. On Tuesday, as federal officials downloaded hundreds of pages from his 1977 federal court trial into the US District Court computer system, a fuller, more disturbing picture of the 58-year-old Garrido and the ordeal Ms Callaway suffered emerged.

Evidence showed Garrido was a troubled young man with a sexual addiction so great that he would masturbate in drive-in theatres, restaurants, bars, public toilets and outside the windows of homes. But he was mentally stable enough to understand the charges he was facing, a psychiatrist told the court in 1977.

Ms Callaway's boyfriend at the time, David Wade, recalled on Tuesday how she would later tell him the young man who tapped on the car window ''looked all right''. The polite stranger with the ponytail pointed to a Mercedes-Benz parked nearby and said it was his but had broken down. Ms Callaway agreed to give him a ride. ''That was her first mistake,'' Mr Wade said.

It was about 7.20pm when she picked up Garrido. Ms Callaway barely spoke to Garrido, even as he kept asking questions about her. She turned on to the road towards Mr Wade's home. Garrido told her he lived just a little further up, to keep driving. She pulled over a couple of minutes later where he said he lived.

''I went to say, 'Here you go', and I looked, and there was an empty lot there,'' she testified.

That was when Garrido reached over and turned off the engine. He grabbed her by the neck, then held her hands.

''If you do everything I say, you won't get hurt,'' he told her. ''I'm serious.''

Garrido handcuffed her, put a leather belt around her neck and under her knees to keep her from looking up. Then he threw a coat over her and began driving. Ms Callaway said she tried to remain calm, to engage him in conversation.

''Why me?'' she asked. ''Well, it wasn't you intentionally, could have been anybody,'' he said. ''It just happened that you happened to be attractive, and that is a fault in this case.''

Ms Callaway could see they had driven into Reno, where they were parked in front of a warehouse. He pried the lock off and took her inside. Behind some heavy plastic sheeting, there was a mattress, with a ''red, old satin, holey, old sheet'', she said.

There were red, blue and yellow stage lights set up on the mattress, a movie projector and a stack of pornographic magazines. For 5½ hours, as a radio played in the background, occasionally giving updates on the time, Garrido raped Ms Callaway. He insisted she drink some wine and smoke some hash.

As the radio announcer said it was 2.38am, someone banged on the door of the shed. Garrido pulled on his jeans and boots, and went outside.

Reno police officer Clifford Conrad was standing outside. Conrad began to question Garrido when Ms Callaway poked her head out from behind the plastic sheeting.

''Help me,'' she said, according to Officer Conrad's testimony. ''She just said, 'Help me', again and she ran out.''

She was nude and screamed that he was trying to rape her, the policeman testified, but Garrido tried to talk his way out of the jam. He implied that Ms Callaway was his girlfriend and that he was married and lived down the street.

Ms Callaway later told Mr Wade that Garrido tried to play it off like he was having sex with his girlfriend, that the officer initially thought Ms Callaway was ''crazy'' and he sent her back into the shed to get dressed. He also let Garrido follow her in.

Inside, Garrido pleaded with Ms Callaway not to tell the police what happened. She assured him she wouldn't, Mr Wade said, then ran outside and repeated that she had been raped and kidnapped.

Garrido was arrested, and in 1977 was convicted in state and federal courts. He was released after 11 years of his 50-year sentence.

Ms Callaway is now married and lives with her husband in Las Vegas, where she is known as Katherine Hall. She is speaking publicly now about her ordeal and on Tuesday was in New York for television appearances. MCT

Re: Jaycee Dugard found ALIVE/Phillip Garrido Sentenced To Life In Prison

Nevada parole board rated Dugard kidnapping suspect Garrido as moderate risk in 1988.

Documents from the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners show the suspect in the Jaycee Lee Dugard kidnapping was rated as a "moderate risk" parolee when he was released in 1988, despite a record as a violent predator who could not control his sexual urges.

Once on parole, Phillip C. Garrido had few restrictions on his activities. He was required to go to California where his mother lived, maintain steady employment, submit to searches and drug tests, get substance abuse counseling and enter a federal community treatment program for sex offenders, records show.

There were no restrictions on his contact with children.

Last week, Garrido and his wife, Nancy, were indicted in El Dorado County, Calif., on 29 felony counts in connection with the 1991 kidnapping and sexual assault of Jaycee Lee Dugard, then 11.

In 1988, he had been released in Nevada on federal parole and relocated to California. In 1999, California Parole and Probation took over his parole from the federal system.

He violated his federal parole in 1993 and spent four months in a federal prison, but federal officials in California have yet to release any details of that violation or explain why he was again released into the community. Nevada officials said they were never notified of Garrido's parole violation, which would have allowed the state to revoke his parole.

The Nevada parole board records for Garrido, now 58, show he was released in August 1988 after serving less than 11 years in a federal penitentiary and less than seven months in Nevada state prison. Garrido had been convicted of the kidnapping and rape of a 25-year-old Tahoe City woman in 1976.

His federal sentence on the kidnapping conviction was 50 years, and the state sentence was five-years-to-life for the sexual assault. The sentences ran together, which meant he was eligible for state parole after serving five years in the federal prison.

Nevada parole documents from the 1980s obtained Tuesday by the Reno Gazette-Journal, show that Garrido had three parole hearings: May 1984, March 1986 and August 1988. Garrido was still in prison in Leavenworth, Kan., at the time of the 1984 and 1986 hearings.

In 1984, the five-member parole board denied Garrido's parole application because of the nature and severity of his crimes, his previous criminal history, the fact that his crime injured another person and because the inmate failed to show he had reformed. The board further noted that Garrido's release would "depreciate the seriousness" of his criminal behavior and his release might endanger the public.

Garrido's 1986 parole hearing, again conducted in his absence, also ended in a denial of parole for the same reasons noted in 1984.

In January 1988, Garrido was released from Leavenworth early based on good behavior while in prison. He was sent to Nevada state prison and appeared at his third parole hearing Aug. 4. In that instance, Garrido was graded on a "risk assessment" system and received a "moderate" risk grade.

The assessment measured criteria including prior felony convictions, the use of a weapon in a crime, whether his victim was injured and other factors. Garrido's score was a 6, with 10 being a perfect "low risk" score.

But he received 2 points for not previously serving time in jail even though he had been arrested, convicted and sent to Contra Costa County's Clayton Farm facility on drug charges in 1969.

If the California incarceration had been counted against him, Garrido would have been given a score of 4, making him a "high risk" parolee. It's unclear whether that would have made a difference to the parole board.

The board voted 3-2 to release Garrido. Of the five members of the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners in 1988, four are now dead. The fifth, Aybbi Kinsley, who voted not to release Garrido, couldn't be located this week.

Gail Powell, spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Public Safety, said the commissioners' notes of the 1988 deliberations in the Garrido case, even if they could be found, are not public record under Nevada law.

Newspaper articles from the late 1980s show Nevada prisons were overcrowded at the time and the parole board was coming under fire for releasing large numbers of inmates, particularly sex offenders who had served fractions of their sentences.

Jaycee Lee Dugard's
Picture on Cards

Updated: Wednesday, 02 Sep 2009, 11:47 AM EDT
Published : Wednesday, 02 Sep 2009, 11:45 AM EDT

* By MIKE BRODY

(MYFOX NATIONAL) - Jaycee Lee Dugard became so accustomed to life imprisoned in backyard tents in California that she helped run her kidnappers' family business.

The 29-year-old fronted a printing company owned by Phillip and Nancy Garrido and run from their home in Antioch. Dugard even included a picture of herself on business cards she made for her alleged abductor.

Some believe that she put that picture on the cards as a cry for help, according to the Telegraph .

Garrido used the cards to solicit business and told people the girl on the card was his daughter "Allissa."

"Allissa did all the graphic design for him and she put her photo on the cards," one local businessman said. "Maybe she was trying to reach out to us but nobody recognized her as Jaycee."

Dugard was abducted as an 11-year-old near her home in South Lake Tahoe, Calif., in June 1991. She reappeared last week when Garrido, a convicted rapist, and his wife walked into a police station to talk to his parole officer. He was accompanied by Dugard, and her two daughters, Starlet, 15, and Angel, 11, that she bore him during her captivity.

The investigation of the case has come under question since Dugard was found. The Contra Costa County sheriff said it was a "missed opportunity" when a neighbor reported a backyard encampment at Garrido's home in 2006, but the investigating officer dismissed it as a routine code violation.

Nancy Garrido’s lawyer: ‘She seems a little lost’
He says ‘state of mind’ of woman charged in Dugard case could be an issue

By Mike Celizic
TODAYShow.com contributor
updated 9:15 a.m. ET, Wed., Sept . 2, 2009

The attorney for Nancy Garrido, the California woman accused of helping her husband hold Jaycee Dugard captive for 18 years, said Wednesday that her “state of mind” could become a defense issue when the sensational case moves forward in court.

“She’s distraught. She’s scared. She seems to be a little lost,” Gilbert Maines told TODAY’s Meredith Vieira. “She doesn’t seem to be able to really focus well at the moment.”

Maines, who was appointed by the court to represent Nancy Garrido, said he has spent just a couple of hours with his client, whom he last saw on Saturday.

“I am five days into this case. I spoke with my client for two hours. I can’t say right now that I’ve formed an opinion of who she is,” Maines told Vieira.

‘A robot’
But he did say that his client thought of Dugard and the two daughters she had by Garrido’s husband, Phillip, as her family. The two girls are now 11 and 15 years old; Dugard, who was kidnapped from in front of her home when she was 11, is 29.

“What she said that I can tell you about is that there came a time when she felt they were a family, and she loved the girls very much, and she loved Jaycee very much,” Maines said. He added, “That seemed a little strange under the circumstances.”

Phillip Garrido’s brother has been quoted as saying that Nancy Garrido was “under his [brother’s] spell.” He described her as “a robot” who would “do anything he asked.”

Maines declined to discuss any specific plans for Nancy Garrido’s defense. According to reports, it was she who allegedly snatched Dugard from the street while her husband drove the car they were in when the girl was kidnapped in South Lake Tahoe in 1991. Two years later, in 1993, she had sole custody and care of Dugard while her husband served months in jail for parole violation on an earlier offense.

Vieira asked Maines how Nancy Garrido could argue she had no knowledge or control when she was alone for that much time with the girl and did nothing to free her.

“That seems to be a fair question,” Maines admitted. “The argument goes to her mental condition at the time, not so much what physically happened. I don’t know that I can argue successfully that she didn’t know what was going on.”

Vieira asked if he would suggest that Nancy Garrido was the victim of mind control.

“I would be derelict in my duty if I didn’t pursue every avenue that was available. One of them would be her state of mind at the time,” he said. The attorney said that he will seek to have his client evaluated by experts to determine her state of mind.

The Garridos’ story
Nancy Garrido, 54, met Phillip Garrido while he was serving 11 years in prison in Leavenworth, Kan., for rape. They were married while he was still behind bars.

The couple lived in a compound in Contra Costa County, Calif. Dugard and her children lived in a warren of tents and outbuildings hidden behind fences in the backyard. Neither parole officers who checked on Phillip Garrido nor local police who visited the compound after neighbors complained about the tents ever discovered the captive woman and her children.

Garrido ran a printing business from his home and also claimed to talk to God. He was captured after he visited UC-Berkeley and told a campus police officer he wanted to hold a religious event at the university. He had Dugard and their two daughters with him.

The officer, her suspicions raised, arranged a meeting the following day, at which time the Garridos were taken into custody and Dugard’s true identity discovered. Dugard has been reunited with her parents. Her daughters have reportedly been told that their father kidnapped and raped their mother.

Police searched the Garrido property for evidence that might connect him to the unsolved murders of nine women. That search turned up an unidentified bone fragment, but no direct evidence to link the Garridos to the murders.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido are being held without bail. They face 29 criminal counts that could land them behind bars for life, including rape and kidnapping. They've both entered not guilty pleas.

The assistant district attorney says Nancy Garrido is legally charged with rape based on the theory she participated in it. They don't have to prove she physically raped Jaycee Dugard, according to the prosecutor. He says they just have to prove she aided and abetted the crime.

Garrido wife 'misses children'
Wednesday, September 02, 2009 - 02:04 PM

The lawyer for the wife of accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido says his client misses the children her husband allegedly fathered with his victim, and says she saw them all as a family.

Nancy Garrido’s lawyer told CBS’s 'The Early Show' today that his client says she loves the girls.

Authorities say Phillip Garrido fathered Jaycee Lee Dugard’s two daughters, now 11 and 15.

The Garridos were arrested last week and charged in the kidnapping, rape and imprisonment of Dugard, who was 11 years old when she was snatched outside her home in 1991.

Lawyer Gilbert Maines also appeared on ABC and NBC on today, saying Nancy Garrido seemed distraught and frightened during his first meeting with her.

He sais that she realises why she is in jail, however.
http://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/world/garrido-wife-misses-children-424828.html


Nancy Garrido is seen with her court appointed attorney, Gilbert Maines, during her arraignment on 29 felony counts stemming from the 1991 abduction of Jaycee Dugard,11, of South Lake Tahoe, in the El Dorado Superior Court in Placerville, Calif., Friday, Aug. 28, 2009. Garrido, and her husband Phillip Garrido, pleaded not guilty on charges including forcible abduction, rape, sexual assault and false imprisonment.


Jaycee Lee Dugard: daughters thought she was their sister
Jaycee Lee Dugard's two daughters spent their lives thinking that she was their elder sister and have finally been told that she is in fact their mother.

Starlet, 15, and Angel, 11, grew up believing that Miss Dugard, 29, was also a daughter of their father Philip Garrido, 58, and that there was just a large age gap.

They are thought to have regarded Garrido's wife Nancy, 54, as their mother.

The children, who have been completely sheltered from the outside world, are said to be struggling to come to terms with the sudden disintegration of their family structure.

"They thought Jaycee was their sister," Miss Dugard's stepfather, Carl Probyn, said. "People have to realise this will take years of therapy."

Ernie Allen, president of the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children which has been working with the family, said: "It's important to reinforce with them that they've done nothing wrong. Jaycee will play a key role in this. It's going to take patience and time to help these children."

In her first prison interview with her lawyer Mrs Garrido claimed she "loved and missed" all three girls and that they were her "family".

Gilbert Maines, her lawyer, said: "She has said to me that she misses the girls, that she loves them and her feeling was they had become a family. They acted like a family. It seems a little strange, given the circumstances, but that's it.

"She's distraught, frightened, and appeared to be a little lost. I would describe her like a ship without a rudder but she understood why she was there."

Mrs Garrido and her husband have denied 29 counts related to the abduction of Miss Dugard in 1991, including rape, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Mr Maines, who has been threatened on the internet for defending his client, claimed she was "controlled" by her husband and was a "victim". He said she will be examined by a psychiatrist but seemed fit to stand trial.

The prosecution of Mrs Garrido is likely to focus on a five month period in 1993 when her husband was in jail for violating parole. During that time Miss Dugard was still held captive at the Garrido home in Antioch, California.

Detectives are looking into a report that Mrs Garrido worked at a children's centre as part of a child abuse prevention program in the early 1990s, around the time Miss Dugard was abducted.

They believe it was she who grabbed Miss Dugard and forced her into in a car in 1991.

As she grew up Miss Dugard started working for Garrido's printing business and included photographs of herself on business cards she made for him to deliver to potential clients. He told clients the girl on the card was his daughter "Allissa".

A local businessman, who saw one of the cards, said: "Allissa did all the graphic design for him and she put her photo on the cards. Maybe she was trying to reach out to us but nobody recognised her as Jaycee."

Steve Contreras, who runs a car repair business, said Angel came to his shop with Garrido.

He said: "She was small for her age and acted more like a five-year-old. She was talking to an imaginary friend. Garrido said the world was going to end and I thought he was on drugs."

Re: Jaycee Dugard found ALIVE/Phillip Garrido Sentenced To Life In Prison

Jaycee Dugard - a tragedy waiting to happen
ANTIOCH - They have called it scruffy, cheap and unloved. They have sneered at the wire mesh fences and unmowed lawns and the rusting trucks in almost every driveway.

And in time, when the media write the final chapters of the appalling story of Jaycee Lee Dugard, they may very well conclude that in Antioch, her story was simply an accident waiting to happen.

Under laws governing America's treatment of convicted sex offenders, Antioch is one of the few places in California where they can legally reside. It begs the question: was the strain of monitoring them all too much for the local police?

A staggering 122 registered sex offenders live here, in a small, blue-collar city in northern California. That includes 102 in the compact zip-code area containing the suburb that Jaycee Lee's alleged kidnapper, Phillip Craig Garrido, called home.

Two convicted rapists reside on Vine Lane, the street next to Walnut Ave where Jaycee Lee's imprisonment and sexual abuse went unnoticed for almost two decades. On Viera Ave, less than 200m away, is the home of Henry Lee Mickens, a 46-year-old man who recently served time for "lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old".

Dozens of other paedophiles can be found within walking distance. On Gragnelli Ave, the occupant of No 420, Shayne Patrick Gaxiola, was convicted of molesting a 12-year-old girl and impregnating her in 1994, when he was 20. Gaxiola was also found guilty of giving marijuana to a string of pubescent girls. He then took indecent pictures of them.

In a town full of such men, the activities of Garrido seemed simply to slip below the radar - despite the awful track record that has emerged since he and his wife, Nancy, were arrested and charged .

Court papers released yesterday from Garrido's 1977 trial for the kidnap and rape of a young woman in Nevada portray him as a dangerous sexual predator. During a psychiatric evaluation, he admitted to using LSD and cocaine as sexual stimulants and said that he would often masturbate in public, by the "side of schools, grammar schools and high schools, and in my own car while I was watching young females".

There is, however, no shortage of similar stories in Antioch. That is perhaps why, after Garrido was released in 1988, 10 years into a 50-year sentence, he and his wife were able to slip virtually unnoticed into the fabric of this community along the Sacramento River.

Antioch's 100,000 residents are largely white and working class. In keeping with most of California, about 10 per cent are unemployed. For reasons largely beyond its control, it has become a paedophiles' ghetto.

At fault are laws governing America's treatment of sex offenders, passed with the laudable intention of protecting children. Their actual effect is open to debate.

The most prominent is Megan's Law, which requires the public to be given access, usually via an internet site, to the names, addresses and "previous" of every man and woman convicted of a sexual offence. It is a well-intentioned exercise in open government. But in practice, critics say, it was introduced in such a way as to be of little help to anyone but the voyeuristic.

"Thanks to political pressure, they made the criteria for including someone on the registry so wide that it has become totally ineffective," says Michael Risher, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union. "It doesn't just carry details of violent rapists but also people who, say, lost their temper during a road rage incident and flashed at someone, or an 18-year-old boy convicted of statutory rape for sleeping with his 17-year-old girlfriend."

In California, the Megan's Law website contains 90,000 entries. Given this extraordinary statistic, it isn't hard to see why the residents of Walnut Avenue - who had 121 other convicted sex offenders in their city to worry about - might have allowed a man with Garrido's dubious profile to pass largely ignored.

The second group of laws governs where paedophiles are allowed to live. Voters have in recent years endorsed Jessica's Law, which bans paedophiles from residing within 610m of a school or a park where children regularly play.

This has driven sex offenders out of major cities, where they have access to rehabilitation and treatment facilities, and into suburbs and secluded rural areas, where they don't. In some smaller cities, they have now become concentrated in such large numbers that parole and law enforcement officers are unable to properly vet them.

Thanks to the influx of offenders to Antioch from major cities, the authorities were simply too overstretched to do their job properly. It may explain - but not necessarily excuse - the fact that a police officer dispatched to investigate claims of children living in Garrido's garden in 2006 seemingly did not have either the time or the wherewithal to thoroughly research his suspect's background.

"If you look at maps that show where offenders are actually able to live under Jessica's Law, there's almost nowhere in the whole of Los Angeles and San Francisco where they can now legally settle," Risher adds. "Everywhere is within 2000 feet (610m) of a park or school. So they all end up in places like Antioch."

Daniel Terry, from the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department, which oversees Antioch, has about 1700 registered sex offenders in his jurisdiction. His station is responsible for about 350 of them, or "349 more than the number of detectives I have dedicated to monitoring these people".

He told the Los Angeles Times that the region's concentration of sex offenders was "significantly higher" than other areas in California and the rest of the US. "This is the reality. These people are walking amongst us everywhere."

Adding to his woes are wider problems in the cheap parts of Antioch where Garrido and many other convicted sex offenders live. In the ramshackle area around Walnut Avenue, petty theft is rampant, drug abuse endemic - the favourite local tipples are crystal meth and crack cocaine - and lawns are littered with junk.

Nearly 2500 homes, roughly 5 per cent of the city's stock, are in foreclosure, with 699 new homes entering arrears last month. Property values have dropped 40 per cent in the past year and unemployment is soaring.

Against this background, it now seems that a man known as "Creepy Phil" by neighbours was able to take a little girl hostage, hold her for 18 years, father her two children, and even take them to community events, while barely raising an eyebrow.

In January, Zion Dutro, a convicted child rapist who lived on Alpha Way, not 3km from Walnut Avenue, appeared in court to plead not guilty to performing rape, sodomy and "lewd acts" on at least eight small girls. He faced 21 counts; his wife, a co-defendant, faced four.

In any other town, this kind of case would have sparked a mixture of shock and outrage that would be heard across the world. In Antioch, it merited no more than a few paragraphs in the local newspaper - a reaction which suggests that Jaycee Lee Dugard may not be the last grisly secret that the city reveals.

MEGAN'S LAW
Requires the public to be given details of the identity, whereabouts and criminal record of convicted sex offenders living in their midst. It was named after New Jersey schoolgirl Megan Kanka, who was kidnapped, raped and killed by a serial sex-offender in 1994. Today, it's enacted in every US state. Opponents say it encourages vigilantism and is an infringement on the civil liberties of ex-offenders. A study last year found the law achieved no demonstrable reduction in child sex offences.

JESSICA'S LAW
Prevents convicted sex offenders from living within a certain distance of schools and parks. It was first adopted in Florida in 2005 after 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford was snatched from her home, then raped and murdered by a convicted paedophile. Today, a version is in force in 42 US states. Critics say it has made major cities off-limits to offenders, leaving some homeless and ghettoising others. There is little evidence that it works. Many police forces say it has the opposite effect: stretching resources and doing nothing to prevent paedophiles travelling to commit crimes.

Garrido Not Linked to No. Cal Killings
Associated Press

Police in No. Calif. say they have found no evidence to connect kidnapping suspect Phillip Garrido to several unsolved murders. Garrido was arrested last week after Jaycee Lee Dugard reappeared, 18 years after her kidnapping.

Police see similarities between Dugard, Garecht cases

SAN JOSE — Authorities are exploring whether Phillip Garrido could be behind the abduction of another high profile missing girl, Michaela Garecht — with long blond hair, blue eyes and a friendly big-toothed grin, she could pass for Jaycee Dugard's sister.

But they share more than a similar physical appearance. An investigator looking into Michaela's disappearance is struck by the fact both she and Jaycee were kidnapped about two decades ago, yanked from the street into a stranger's car — Michaela from Hayward, in 1988, when she was 7; Jaycee from South Lake Tahoe, in 1991, when she was 11.

The cars in both cases are also similar, a large sedan. And in 1988, Garrido reportedly was living in a halfway house in Oakland, a short drive from the Hayward store where Michaela pulled into a car after going to the store with a friend.

Hayward police said the similarities are too close to ignore.

"The fact both kidnappings happened in broad daylight, the similarity of the car, the area, the fact he was released from prison a few months before Michaela was taken," said Hayward Police Lt. Chris Orrey. And, "if you look at the pictures of Jaycee and Michaela, they could be sisters."

Garrido and his wife, Nancy, were charged last week with abducting Dugard. Once Dugard's identity was confirmed and authorities learned more about Garrido — his conviction for the kidnap and rape of a South Lake Tahoe woman in 1976 — several law enforcement agencies launched a four-day search of the Garridos' ramshackle property in Antioch for possible links to a string of homicides in the 1990s.

During the 18 years she was missing, Dugard and two daughters Garrido fathered with her lived behind his Antioch home in a motley collection of tents and sheds.

The search, which included the use of cadaver dogs, turned up a small bone fragment on property next to Garrido's that he had access to.

But police ended their search late Monday, saying they had turned up no links to the prostitute homicides.

Michaela's mother, Sharon Murch, is hoping the search for links to her daughter's case will be more successful.

"I called the police at 6:30 a.m. the day after Jaycee was found," Murch said Tuesday. She, too, was struck by the similarities — and she wasn't the only one.

The other young girl who had gone to the store to buy candy with Michaela in 1988 is grown now and was one of many watching the news about Dugard and the Garridos unfold last week. As soon as she saw police removing a dirty old car from Garrido's backyard on television, she called Murch. "That looks like the car Michaela was kidnapped in," she said.

Authorities are exploring whether Phillip Garrido could be behind the Michaela Garecht was 9 years old when she was kidnapped in 1988




This is the sketch released by Hayward Police in 1988 of the man who kidnapped Michaela Garecht. The main witness was her childhood friend, who had gone to the store with Michaela to buy sodas and taffy. (Hayward Police Department)

Attorney: Nancy Garrido distraught, loves husband's daughters
NEW YORK—The lawyer for the wife of accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido says his client misses the children her husband allegedly fathered with his victim, and says she saw them all as a family.

Nancy Garrido's lawyer told NBC's "Today" show this morning that his client says she loves the girls.

"What she said that I can tell you about is, there came a time that when she felt that they were a family and that she loves the girls very much and loved Jaycee very much and that seems a little strange given the circumstance but that's what she had said to me," Maines said.

Authorities say Phillip Garrido fathered Jaycee Lee Dugard's two daughters, now 11 and 15.

The Garridos were arrested last week and charged in the kidnapping, rape and imprisonment of Dugard, who was 11 years old when she was snatched outside her home in 1991.

Lawyer Gilbert Maines also appeared on ABC and CBS on Wednesday, saying Nancy Garrido seemed distraught and frightened during his first meeting with her. But he says she realizes why she is in jail.

"Oh yeah. No, we've had a conversation about that. Yeah, she understands," Maines told the "Today" show.

Maines said he's considering arguing that despite the suspicion that Nancy Garrido was the one who physically snatched Dugard from the street 18 years ago, she may not have been fully aware of the circumstances of the kidnapping.

"Well, that seems to be a fair question but the crux of the matter, the argument, I think, goes to maybe her mental condition at the time, and not so much what physically happened," Maines said. "I don't know ... I can argue successfully she didn't know what was going on."

When asked about whether Phillip Garrido had brainwashed or had mind control over his wife, Maines said that would be explored.

"I think I would be derelict in my duty if I didn't pursue every avenue that is available and one of them, certainly, is to look into her state of mind at the time," he said. "Maybe even prior to that time."

The attorney also dismissed notions that Nancy Garrido might not be fit for trial.

"Oh, I don't think she's incompetent to stand trial," Maines said. "My plan is ... sometime in the near future.. is to have her evaluated, to have an expert sit down with her and spend some time with her."

Jaycee Dugard’s Modelling Portfolio, In Pictures

JAYCEE Lee Dugard - Anorak’s look at Jaycee Dugard in the news: Jaycee Dugard put her modelling portfolio on Phillip Garrido’s business cards.

The Telegraph reports that Jaycee Lee Dugard put her picture on business cards as ‘cry for help‘.

This is a statement of fact. Facts are thin on the ground in the big media feeding frenzy. Nick Allen has done well to find a new one. And then Nick Allen in Antioch tells us:

Jaycee Lee Dugard included a photograph of herself on business cards she made for her alleged abductor Philip Garrido in what may have been a cry for help.

May have been. And may not have been. Such are the facts.

A local businessman, who saw one of the cards, said: “Allissa did all the graphic design for him and she put her photo on the cards.

Another client, Cheyvonne Molino, 35, who owns a wrecking business, said: “Her picture was all over his business cards for the last 10 years. She had blonde hair and blue eyes. She was a beautiful young lady and was aspiring to do modelling.”

So many facts. Jaycee’s looks are relevant - those blue eyes and blonde hair keep the media interested. And then another fact: Garrido is not as sane as you may suppose:

Andy Dryer, 41, who runs an auto business and fixed Garrido’s car, said: “He was weird. He said he could read my wife’s mind. He asked her what she was thinking and then said it was God. It wasn’t.”

Good God?

Garrido brought the two daughters he fathered by Miss Dugard – Starlet, 15, and Angel, 11 – to the shop.

Mr Dryer said: “I saw them both and they seemed find. He gave me a bunch of literature about a church or cult he was trying to open up.”

You mean to say that the mindless zombies seemed fine? What does this say about the state of California teens, people? They seemed normal.

Jaycee Dugard is in hiding – hiding form a voracious media.

Good luck with that one Maines. Does he mean to tell us that Nancy Garrido wasn't fully aware that grabbing somebody else's child off the street and making them live in your backyard is kidnapping?

What's Ahead for Jaycee and Her Girls

Post by FystyAngel on Mon Sep 07, 2009 4:46 pm

NEW YORK, Sept. 5, 2009
What's Ahead for Jaycee and Her Girls
Reporter: They're Moving to Her Mom's Home; Expert: Trauma Will Prove "Overwhelming"; It's "Critical" to Keep Them from Media


CBS) Even though Jaycee Dugard, her two daughters and their family are said to be overjoyed to be back together, the horrible ordeal Jaycee and the girls went through will probably "overwhelm" them when it all starts to sink in, and take years to recover from, according to one expert.

And keeping them away from the media would be a huge help, the expert says.

Police say Jaycee, 29, was held captive and repeatedly raped in sheds and tents in the backyard of Phillip and Nancy Garrido's Antioch, Calif. home. Authorities say Phillip snatched Jaycee off the streets of South Lake Tahoe, Calif. 18 years ago. Jaycee and her two daughters, 15 and 11, both of whom police say were fathered by Garrido, were freed last week.

Orange County Register reporter Greg Hardesty, who interviewed Jaycee's aunt, said on "The Early Show" Friday that Jaycee and family are apparently dwelling on the here-and-now and experiencing boundless happiness at being back together, putting the "darkness" of those 18 years aside.

The aunt, Tina Dugard, is the sister of Jaycee's mother, Terry Probyn, and witnessed the reunion.

On "The Early Show Saturday Edition," Hardesty told co-anchor Chris Wragge he thinks "they realize the horror of the reality and it has set in, but I think they're so busy reconnecting and enjoying the connections that they're sort of pushed to the side a little bit. But they're under no illusion that this will be an easy time moving forward."

Hardesty said, "The message they wanted me to get out, I believe, is that these two young girls aren't some, you know, wild children running in the wilderness with no education, that they're very literate, that they're reasonably well-adjusted given their upbringing."

How is that possible?

"I think that Jaycee is a remarkable mother. I think she had to have exceptional parenting skills to raise her daughters to the extent that she has. And she got that from her mother."

Hardesty says it's his understanding that the Dugards "plan to remain low-profile for awhile, but, within a couple of weeks, they plan to relocate" to Probyn's Southern California home in Riverside.

But psychologist and author Dr. Susan Bartell told Wragge, "It would probably be better for her to be in a different place, although for some people, it is better to go back, to revisit and to have the chance to work through a little bit what they had been through.

"I think what's most important, though, is for (Jaycee) her to really stay out of the spotlight -- I think that's critical -- and to really focus, for all three of them to focus on their healing, to get into counseling as soon as possible, and to stay away from the media as much as they possible can."

Bartell says that, even though Jaycee and her daughters may be dong well now, being reintroduced to society, and all that went on in that backyard, will be "overwhelming for all three of them, for her, for the kids, very overwhelming. The idea that they are having this reunion with their family is wonderful, but what's going to happen gradually, as the weeks and months go ahead, is the trauma is going to begin to overwhelm them, and it's going to take a very, very long time to heal from this. And they're going to need to gradually learn to adjust to being back home, to learn to live in a different kind of environment. They might even miss where they were for all those years, weirdly enough."

Not only that, Bartell continued, but, "I suspect it will be even hard for them to talk to their family about it. They're gonna want to protect their family and just let their family feel the joy of being with them. So, they're not even going to want to share that with hair family, and rather, (will) want it to talk to their therapists about it."http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/09/05/earlyshow/saturday/main5290134.shtml?tag=pop

well - i have to say that I didn't see THIS one coming in what lies ahead for Jaycee - she has been victimized yet again IMO - this idiot sports writer thinks that he needs to publicly write in his column everything that Jaycee has missed in the sports world... disgusting, right?? like she has nothing else to be worried about than what has been going on in sports while she was subjected to cruel and inhumane treatment - and that's just her living conditions... not to mention being brutally raped, being forced to have children with her rapist, and so on.... it angers me that this man can so callously post something this outrageous. I think his resignation should be demanded...

I read the article and I agree that it is completely tasteless. I'm sure Jaycee could care less what's happened in the sports world over the last eighteen years.

The following link has an apology from the writer, Mark Whicker. It also shows some comments from the outraged readers of that newspaper. I think the apology is too little, too late, and won't calm people down.
