Kidnapping Victim Found Alive 18 Years Later

Let’s start Friday off on a happy/incredibly disturbing note, shall we? In 1991, Jaycee Dugard, 11, was kidnapped and presumed dead. This week, a woman walked into a police station in the Bay Area and told officers that she was Dugard, now 29. She had been kidnapped and kept a prisoner in the backyard of Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender and religious fanatic, and his wife, Nancy. Garrido had raped her repeatedly over the years, fathering two children, now 11 and 15. Dugard and the girls were kept in tents and sheds in the Garridos’ backyard and police suspect that this week might have been the first time she or her children had left the compound. The three have since been reunited with Dugard’s family and the Garridos will be arraigned today. [LA Times]
