This story is being revealed that Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped
18 years ago has been kept captive in the back yard of a registered sex offender. He fathered two children with her.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/08/27/california.missing.girl/index.html

Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was 11 when she was taken from a school bus stop in 1991, has been reuinited with her mother and step father.

She and her two children lived in the back yard of the home where Phillip and Nancy Garrido lived. The children, ages 11 and 15 had never been to school or seen a doctor.

This is so similar to that fellow in Austria who kept his own daughter in a basement apartment and fathered several children by her.

It doesn't take long to stray into realizing the monumental damage he did to these lives, when thinking about the existence this young woman and her two daughters experienced (she must have been 13 when he first impregnated her) and the vacuum that exists regarding their ability to think and function. What do they know of the world today? How, at these ages, do they successfully learn to read and write and have a "normal" social life?

It boggles the mind, and seems to me (as one opposed to the death penalty on general principle) that this might be an instance when it would be acceptable. For both of these individuals.

Jaycee Lee Dugard became so accustomed to life imprisoned in a secret garden in California that she helped run her kidnappers' family business.

The 29-year-old became the "front" for a printing company owned by Phillip and Nancy Garrido and run from their home in Antioch, near San Francisco. The prisoner dealt with its clients in person and by phone and e-mail. One customer of the firm, which printed business cards, described her as its "design genius".

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

Phillip and Nancy Garrido denied 29 charges including kidnap and rape in court in El Dorado county on Friday. The FBI has confirmed it is seeking evidence that Garrido, 58, murdered up to 10 women, including some prostitutes, in the San Francisco area in the late 1990s.
   
Dugard is said to be relishing her freedom and is planning a trip to Disneyland with her family. The first words she said when reunited with her mother, Terry Probyn, at a motel last week were, "Mom, I have kids."

Especially with children who are hostages, they can instinctively act for their own survival by conforming to what the hostage taker wants. If you defy the kidnapper, there is more danger, but if you please the kidnapper, it feels safer.

Laurel, the interviews I've seen of his father and comments of his brother actually show to me that they knew since the kidnapper was a teenager that he had gone "crazy". His family feel like he "died" to them in a way since he was a teen and heavy into LSD and other drugs, not just the brain injury.

It seems unlikely that he would still be on parole from a 1971 conviction, so maybe we shouid give the federal parole officers the benefit of the doubt.

However, the 2006 incident where a neighbor called and said there were people being held in the backyard of the Garrido house should have resulted in (at least) in inspection of the backyard. The sheriff thinks so too:


"Contra Costa County Sheriff Warren E. Rupf said a neighbor reported three years ago there were people living in tents in a backyard encampment at the home of Garrido.

The deputy who interviewed Garrido in November 2006 gave him a warning that people living outdoors was a code violation. The deputy did not go into the backyard of the house located in an unincorporated area of Antioch, about 45 miles northeast of San Francisco, Rupf said.

More suspicion and curiosity on the deputy's part could have uncovered the secret encampment where Dugard allegedly was held, he said.

They "missed an opportunity" and there are "absolutely no excuses," Rupf said, apologizing to the Dugard family.

......snip.....
"Garrido wrote the songs after being jailed for four months in April 1993 for violating parole. It is believed his wife Nancy kept Jaycee under lock and key during his spell inside.

And it was feared she was so brainwashed by the monster that she never even contemplated escaping. Weeks after being released from prison Garrido had his first child with Jaycee, by then 14.

Four years later they had another child. He wrote a new set of songs about the children.

The friend also revealed the paedophile would constantly talk about sex.

The mate added: "He said he loved sex and wanted it 24/7. He had some pretty messed up fantasies and would openly share them with me.

"He liked rough sex and he told me he liked his girls young. I took that to mean 18 or 19, not 13."

Yesterday, a neighbour of Garrido's in Antioch, California, told how he witnessed raucous parties in the pervert's garden. Mike Rogers, 49, said: "There was a gap in the fence and I could see seven or eight guys partying. They were in his garden drinking beer, yelling and swearing."

Wondering why there are only the two offspring... I hope it occurs to the authorities to look into the possibility that Dugard was impregnated more than twice, and to look in the yard for the shallow graves of baby boys. Baby daughters, in Garrido's sick mind, were probably considered to be future sex objects, fit for his stable of corraled young females, but baby sons would only grow up to be a threat to him.

yes, similar to polygamist "communities" where the male children are evicted....hence: the "lost boys"

"The hidden victims of the Fundamentalist Mormons who practice polygamy today are the boys of the community. These young men must be chased from their families and communities of birth under various pretexts, because the polygamous community depends on a surplus of girls for the older men to take as wives. They have to get rid of them while still boys, because once they become men, they realize how screwed they are under the polygamous system, and as men, they would have the ability to do something about it. Getting rid of the rebellious and willful boys, while they are still confused, weak, and brainwashed is a lot easier then dealing with disaffected, angry men."

Garrido had his own cult religion going from the delusions about voices, manifestos, angels, god... that isn't unusual for a pedophile to also have what some researchers have called a "Mom & Pop cult". There are more small family type cult groups like this in the US than you can imagine. Our freedoms have the achilles heel of anyone being able to start their own religion. It's common that these types of cult leaders use undue influence, like he did on the child he kidnapped, to get those close to them to conform to his own religious delusions. As a child, in particular, she had no defense against that. Having lived under his control since age 11, there was probably in her mind no other way to live, so she would not even think of leaving, especially having 2 young daughters that he controlled, too.

"...Because of her early work at Walter Reed, Dr. Singer was familiar with the history of coercive persuasion in many settings throughout history. Later, laboratory studies done by social psychologists, field studies of influence done by anthropologists, and propaganda analyses done by political and linguistic analysts all came to be of use as she studied how current cults and other groups using thought reform processes induce attitude and behavior changes in their members, how they use words to persuade, control and even damage people.."

"... Police in Hayward, California, are trying to determine whether Garrido is linked to the 1988 kidnapping of Michaela Garecht, said Hayward police Lt. Chris Orrey.

Garecht and Dugard were of similar age and appearance, both were abducted in daylight, and a sketch of a suspect resembled Garrido, Orrey said. There are differences, as well, but she declined to elaborate.

The similarities in the cases, the fact that Dugard was found close to home and comments from neighbors make Murch think her daughter could have been on Garrido's compound.

"I understand that a few years ago, one of the neighbors called in and said that there were girls being kept in the backyard. ... She said that there were a number of girls that came and went, but that there was a core group of five," Murch said. She hopes her daughter was among them...."

The thing that SERIOUSLY freaks me out about this is the total delusion of Garrido and his wife. Seriously...pleading not guilty to the kidnapping? Sadly, I can picture a highly unethical lawyer trying to capitalize on the fact that Jaycee stayed and worked at the print shop all those years (theoretically having the opportunity to escape and not taking it). But how do they possibly expect to justify the kidnapping in the first place? How can any lawyer justify defending this plea?

And the fact that Garrido claims that the birth of his last child made him "turn his life around" and that people who talked to the victims were going to hear a "heartwarming, uplifting story"...this just makes me SO sick. Yeah, you turned your life around. Just not enough to, you know, make things right by reuniting Jaycee with her family.

AAUUGHH!!!
