I had read about it this morning on the web. When
she was kidnapped from her neighborhood in South
Lake Tahoe, California she was just 11 years old.
Jaycee Dugard, the first victim of this crime was
taken 6/10/1991 as she walked to her school bus
stop, (police have confirmed) by registered sex
offender and convicted rapist Phillip Craig Garrido.
He ran his own printing business as his means of
support and kept his victims in sheds and tents
behind his home near Antioch, California. It is
alleged Garrido additionally brought 2 daughters
into the world with his (at the time under aged)
victim, Miss Dugard, while living at the same
residence, with his actual wife, the possible 2nd
accomplice in this case.
Mr. Garrido was brought under suspicion after a
routine back round check flagged him as a prior
sex offender when he was attempting to pass out
religious fliers with his "daughters" on the
Berkley USC Campus in California. His parole
officer was notified, by campus police. When
Garrido went to meet with his parole officer with
his wife and his victims present Mr. and Mrs.
Garrido were arrested. The sheds and tents where
his victims had lived were discovered when police
searched the Garrido back yard.
Miss Dugard, now 29 (and her daughters) have been
reunited with Her original family.
I hope they are able to achieve long and joyous lives from
this moment forward.
