Nancy Grace

The Jaycee Dugard Story

Aired November 04, 2013 - 20:00   ET



JAYCEE DUGARD, KIDNAPPING VICTIM: Hi, this is Jaycee Dugard. Just ask yourself to care. If you see something that looks wrong or amiss, speak out. You might be wrong, but you might just save someone`s life. This is presented by the JAYC Foundation.


NANCY GRACE, HOST: When I first hear the name Jaycee Dugard, I think of the misery that she endured, and I have strong suspicions that she was not his first victim. I think of all the years that she was held captive by her kidnapper, a sex predator, how she lived in such horrible conditions, even giving birth in captivity.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She was grabbed as she walked to her bus stop in South Lake Tahoe, California. Her stepfather, on the driveway, saw his little girl, blond, blue-eyed, all dressed in pink, disappear into a strange car.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What do you remember about the day that Jaycee disappeared?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The minute I saw that door fly open, I was trying to jump on my mountain bike and trying to get to her. My neighbor was out front watering, so I told her, Call 911. They had a two-minute head start.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Those two minutes turned into nearly two decades. There were searches, missing flyers and reward money. Nothing brought Jaycee back, not even her mother`s plea.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Jaycee, if you hear Mommy, I love you and I want you to come home tonight.


GRACE: I think of the near misses in catching her kidnapper. And I also think of how the system`s wires were crossed to an extent where law enforcement was in the home of her kidnapper and didn`t bother to look out in the back yard to find her imprisoned.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Jaycee finally did come home when she suddenly walked into a police station outside San Francisco with her alleged kidnappers and told officers who she was.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In my wildest dreams, after 18 years, I mean, this is like a total package, like winning the lotto.


GRACE: What`s so ironic about the way that Jaycee ended up there in South Lake Tahoe is that her family, her mother and stepdad, moved there for her safety, to get a better lifestyle, a better life for her as she grew up, a safer life. So they moved there to protect her, and it was there that she was kidnapped.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Jaycee`s stepfather got the call he`s been waiting for from Jaycee`s mom. They are now separated.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: She goes, Are you sitting down? And I said, yes. And she goes, They found Jaycee. And she paused for a few seconds, and she goes, She`s alive. So we both cried for about 10 minutes, you know, before we could talk.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Jaycee`s accused kidnappers, Phillip and Nancy Garrido, are in custody.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Here`s how it all unfolded. A security guard at the U.S. Berkeley campus noticed Mr. Garrido handing ow flyers with two young children. A background check showed he was a convicted sex offender on parole. He was interviewed by his parole officer. At his side, his wife, the two young children, and a woman he called Allissa (ph). Allissa turned out to be Jaycee Dugard.

Authorities say Mr. Garrido admitted he had kidnapped her all those years ago and fathered two children with her.


GRACE: The morning of June 10, 1991, is when this saga started, this tragic saga. Jaycee Dugard walks to the bus stop, like she did every day. Her stepfather went part of the way with her and watched her get all the way to the bus stop.

As he`s seeing her get there, he notices a gray sedan. It goes by the bus stop, the school bus stop. It comes back, snatches Jaycee into the sedan.

This is what she says happened. She says that she was actually stun- gunned, that she felt pain and tingling go down her whole body, and that she could actually hear the perpetrator laughing. He and his wife were in the car laughing and said, I can`t believe we got away with it.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I`m trying to imagine how you are coping. I`m trying to imagine...

DUGARD: I don`t know. I can`t imagine being beaten to death, you know? But -- and you can`t imagine being kidnapped and raped, you know? So it`s just -- you just do what you have to do to survive.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Even though parole officers had visited Garrido`s house over the years, nobody ever spotted Jaycee Dugard. Why not?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There was a secondary back yard that`s screened from view from literally all around, only accessed through a very small, narrow tarp. Her and the two children were living in a series of sheds. There was one shed entirely soundproofed, could only be opened from the outside.


GRACE: A lot of speculation has swirled about the involvement of the perpetrator, Phillip Garrido`s, wife, Nancy, in the kidnap of Jaycee Dugard.

This is what we know. This is according to Jaycee Dugard. When she was first kidnapped and she was in the back of his car and the two of them were driving off with her, she instinctively -- she`s only 11 -- said, My family doesn`t have money for a kidnap ransom. We don`t have any money. And they continued laughing.

She realized they didn`t want money. And Nancy Garrido, the co- defendant, then put a towel over Jaycee Dugard`s head and face. They then took her to Phillip Garrido`s compound of sorts, tiny, tiny cramped area. They put her in a soundproof room all alone. It had one window with bars on it. They handcuffed in there with nothing but a towel, completely naked -- 11 years old.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: From what we`ve been able to learn, it doesn`t appear Garrido kept Dugard and the young daughters hidden all the time. We`ve spoken with neighbors and several of Garrido`s business associates who say they often saw the young women. Garrido operated a printing company making business cards. Some of his customers say Jaycee was the creative force behind the business.

Neighbors describe Phillip Garrido as creepy, someone who had become a religious zealot yet loved music, often singing in his front yard. But those neighbors, many who refused to speak with us on camera, say Nancy Garrido acted like a brain-washed wife who rarely spoke to anyone.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This morning, when FBI and sheriff`s deputies from El Dorado County sealed up Walnut Avenue in this unincorporated part of Antioch, neighbors were not totally surprised to hear of the arrest of Phillip Garrido.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (INAUDIBLE) a sex offender because we saw it on the Internet.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He let me know he had a past. He said that, you know, he was in prison a while back. He was in prison for 11 years for a crime against a woman.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But it was the sight of three girls at Garrido`s house that concerned the neighbors.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: And he has kids there, young girls there.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: How did this happen?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE) girls plainly Caucasians. So how did they -- with a Filipino wife.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Neighbors kept to themselves on this dusty street, but Perry Hady (ph) had a chance encounter with Garrido and an 11-year-old girl.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It was a weird situation. She had stayed next to (INAUDIBLE) she called her father. If he, like, stepped a few steps away, she made sure she was close to him. As she talked to me, she`d look back at him as a confirmation that everything was OK. It wasn`t normal.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: August 18th, 1994, you`re how old?

DUGARD: Fourteen.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You`re in labor, and there`s nobody there, having a baby in a back yard.

DUGARD: Yes. I did. Very painful, but then I saw her. She was beautiful. I felt like I wasn`t alone anymore. I had somebody that was mine. I wasn`t alone. And I knew I could never let anything happen to her. I didn`t know how I was going to do that, but I did.



GRACE: Phillip Garrido is a monster. There`s no other way to put it. And so is his wife, Nancy Garrido. According to the victim, Jaycee Dugard, Phillip Garrido referred to his sex attacks on her as "runs." He told this little girl, just 11 years old, that she was helping him with his "sex problem."

The attacks on her were brutal and disgusting. Oftentimes, he was high, just completely out of his gourd when he would be raping this girl. He very often used restraints on her. He would leave her in that tiny room, that tiny cell, tied up and restrained.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Jaycee Dugard`s stepfather is telling us that she is feeling remorse and guilt over bonding with her alleged captor for almost 18 years here at this home in Antioch, California.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Jaycee Dugard appeared to have settled into an unimaginable routine during her 18 years of captivity. Behind the scenes, she lived in this messy back yard prison. But to the outside world, she was the creative force behind Phillip Garrido`s printing business, designing business cards for clients all over the town of Antioch.

Depaul Carrunarande (ph) describes her as intelligence, with an attention to detail.

DEPAUL CARRUNARANDE, CUSTOMER: She was always having a very pretty smile on the face. She comes and talking to me, is always smiling. And she`s a very pretty girl, a very pretty young lady.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Even Dugard`s daughters appeared to live a normal life. These are pictures of the young girls obtained by CNN. The 11-year- old went by the name of Angel, the 15-year-old, Starlet. We`ve blurred their faces to protect their privacy.

The pictures were taken two weeks ago at a birthday party for Shevaun Malino`s (ph) daughter. Malino says Garrido called Jaycee and the daughters, "my girls," and often brought them to Malino`s rec yard, delivering bottles of water on hot days.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: They made it seem like these little girls were, like, living like wolves or jungle kids in the back yard, you know, dungeon. Perhaps that is it, but they didn`t give the visual to me that they were. They were polite. They were well-mannered.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Malino says Angel and Starlet were huge fans of "Hannah Montana." She says Jaycee dreamed of becoming a model, always clean and well dressed, no hint of the tragic reality.

Investigators have expanded the crime scene at Phillip Garrido`s home. They`ve brought cadaver dogs to search the property next door. Authorities are looking into whether Garrido could be connected to a string of murders in the 1990s.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What we also know is that Phillip Garrido had access to that property. He used that property, and it looks like he lived on that property, in a shed.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: As we`ve scoured Garrido`s home town looking for clues, we found this in a hardware store, the name Phil G on a donation card on August 17th. This receipt shows Garrido bought a pressure switch and then left a $2 donation to the Children`s Miracle Network.

Dugard`s whereabouts are a tightly kept secret. We understand that she is with her two daughters and her mother and a couple of other relatives, but she`s also with a team of psychologists,and authorities that are helping the family through the reuniting process.



GRACE: Jaycee Dugard did not officially meet Phillip Garrido`s wife for seven months into her kidnapping, which lasted years and years. It was extremely odd. Nancy Garrido, the wife, was jealous, actually jealous, of Jaycee Dugard, this little girl that they had kidnapped together that was out in this cement cell, restrained. She was actually jealous that Phillip Garrido, her husband, would have sex with this child. It`s just crazy.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Phillip Garrido fantasized about raping women -- one of the startling admissions he made during his 1977 rape trial. In court documents obtained by CNN, Garrido also testified during that case that he used LSD and cocaine as sexual stimulants and masturbated in public places at the sight of schools, grammar schools and high schools, and "in my own car while I was watching young females."

Garrido made these confessions while on trial for raping then 25-year- old Catherine Callaway Hall (ph), who told Larry King that Garrido raped her after she offered to give him a ride.

CATHERINE CALLAWAY HALL, VICTIM: Just turned around the corner and pulled over, and he slammed my head into the steering wheel and pulled out handcuffs. He took my keys out, threw them on the floor, and pulled out handcuffs and handcuffed me and said, I just want a piece of ass. If you be good, you won`t get hurt.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Does Garrido have other dark secrets in his past that have not been revealed? Police confirm they are investigating Garrido as a possible suspect in the disappearance of two young girls in the area, including then 13-year-old Eileen Misheloff (ph), who went missing 20 years ago while walking home from school.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do we know in terms of how she was abducted?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The only thing that we know, we know that she was last seen at a -- an intersection very close to here.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Misheloff`s father tells me the Jaycee Dugard case has given him renewed hope, even if it turns out Garrido`s not involved.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It shows that somebody can be found after all these -- all these years. You never know what could happen. And so what it did is reinforced our hope that perhaps Eileen is still alive and we will find her.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And take a look at this. This is a composite sketch of the suspect who abducted 9-year-old Michaela Derek (ph) outside a store in 1988. Police say they think it resembles Phillip Garrido, though it`s tough to tell with the passage of time. Michaela`s mother tells CNN there are other similarities.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The method of kidnapping was the same. They were both dragged into cars. The description of the cars was very similar. The girls look very much like each other. There have been points in the past where the investigations have crossed with the same suspects.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Cadaver dogs, meanwhile, found a bone fragment on a neighbor`s property that authorities say Garrido lived on at one time, but say it could take weeks to determine if it`s from an animal or human.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Authorities are ending the speculation on one aspect of this case. They`d investigated Phillip Garrido as a possible suspect in the murders of several women back in the 1990s, prostitutes. They say they looked at the evidence ford and determined that there is none. Dan Simon, CNN, Antioch, California.


GRACE: Her living conditions were abhorrent. She had no water. She didn`t have a toothbrush. She didn`t have a commode. She would have to go to the bathroom with a -- using a pail while she was handcuffed so she couldn`t get away.

She was completely alone, an 11-year-old girl for years alone. At one point, she had a cat, and then Phillip Garrido took the cat away because it urinated. A few times after that, she would get another cat, and then it would mysteriously disappear. Apparently, Garrido would kill it -- just awful.


GRACE: Jaycee gave birth to two little girls during her kidnap. She tried to school them as best as she could, all of them in one room together. She was forced to tell the girls that she was their sister, Jaycee Dugard was their sister, and that Nancy Garrido, her kidnapper, was their actual mother.

Now, remember, she only had a 5th grade education when she tried to home school her two little girls, for lack of a better word.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is how that letter written in Phillip Garrido`s own hand, begins. Quote, "First off, I would like to apologize to every human being for what has taken place" end quote. But that`s followed by a confusing second sentence. Quote, "People all over the world are hearing testimony that through the spirit of Christ, a mental process took place, ending a sexual problem believed to be impossible," end quote.

Donna Shistowsky (ph) is a law professor at UC Davis and has a Ph.D. in psychology.

DONNA SHISTOWSKY, UC DAVIS: To me, this almost rises to the level of what psychologists would call a partial apology. It`s almost like he`s saying, you know, I acknowledge I have a problem, and that what I did was a problem, but he`s certainly not taking full responsibility for his actions.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is the third letter KCRA 3 (ph) has received from Phillip Garrido. It was sent to us from the El Dorado County jail, where he`s being held, charged with kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment in the abduction of Jaycee Lee Dugard more than 18 years ago.

We read the letter to Garrido`s attorney, Susan Gellman (ph), who told us by phone, quote, "Mr. Garrido is expressing genuine remorse. He would like people to consider the fact that he`s a changed man, and his story is best told all at one time instead of in pieces. He presents obvious issues concerning whether or not he`s competent to be a defendant, and we are looking into that," end quote.

There is more in this latest letter, including some things Garrido told us in earlier letters. But it is that vague apology that sets this one apart, an apology from Phillip Garrido. In Sacramento, this is Walt Gray (ph) for CNN.


GRACE: For all the years that Jaycee Dugard was enslaved, 1991 to 2009, probation came to the home 60 times. They came to the home of Phillip Garrido 60 times, and they never once did a full inspection, which is what they are supposed to do. Never once did they look into the outer shed, the outer structures in the backyard, which is what they are supposed to do. They are supposed to search him and his home, everything about his home. It`s called the curtilage. The yard, the garage, the tool shed, everything, to make sure that there`s no ongoing criminal activity. Sixty visits. Not once did they look, the whole time this child is being tied up, restrained and raped. Awful.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When the call came from out of the blue early last year, the man on the line identified himself at Phil Garrido. He was calling this man, a private investigator.

What was he like in that time you spent with him?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, way much more different than what you`re seeing on the latest news broadcasts. He was, like you and I are right here. We`re speaking normal, dressed normally. Acting normally.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Of course, we now know that when Garrido placed that phone call, 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard had been missing for 17 years. She was now 28, and Garrido fathered two daughters with her, and they were living in secret behind his house. So why would Garrido call up a P.I.? He needed help, he said, convincing people that he had an extraordinary invention.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He had developed some or invented some device that would allow a person to speak without physically speaking, and be heard by the listener.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: People who know him say in recent years, Garrido had been talking more and more about God and the apocalypse. He demonstrated the device, a black box with headphones to Tim Allen (ph), a local businessman.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He told you he was starting a new religion and had a revelation from God?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes. Uh-huh. And he also had a box. When he first brought it in, he said, this box, you can hear voices from the other side. You can hear people telling you how -- what`s going to happen and what`s going to -- what the future says.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is it. Garrido`s black box. Until now, only a handful of people have seen it. He became obsessed with his so-called invention.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This was just a black case, with a handle. A couple of jacks. Very light.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It turns out just a few days before Garrido was arrested for his alleged crimes against Jaycee Dugard, he asked a friend to keep the box for him. His friend wants to remain anonymous.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He plugged into it. He`d give you a set of headphones and he would have a set of headphones, and he would manipulate his hand basically over the top of the box, and it would have sound coming out of it. It would make sound like distortion noises, like whales, all sorts of little interference noises, while he would move his lips, and not speak, but yet move his lips and you would be able to hear his voice through the headphones.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Did he ever do it on you?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And what happened?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Notice we`re smiling at one another.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Among those he asked to try his invention, we couldn`t find one who took it seriously.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I didn`t want to tell him, you`re a kook, and you don`t know what you`re talking about. I just didn`t want to say that to him.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Phil Garrido believed he was on a special mission from God. In this press release, he declared a Bay Area man has made a major discovery. In fact, he was talking about religion more and more obsessively. At this point, it was about two years before he would be arrested.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If I had any idea this was the type of madman we now know he is, he would never have been anywhere in my inner circle.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They all think of Garrido as a madman now, his twisted double life, his black box, his voices and his growing fixation with religion. All of it would soon lead to a confrontation with the police in Berkeley, and then an arrest. His biggest secret finally exposed. The hidden compound, and Jaycee Dugard found after 18 long years.

Dan Simon, CNN, Contra Costa County, California.



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: In 1991, the FBI opened a kidnapping investigation and has been working it jointly with the El Dorado County Sheriff`s office on the disappearance of Jaycee Dugard. On the day that she arrived at the parole officer`s office with the subjects, the Concord Police Department contacted the FBI in San Francisco to advise them that Jaycee Lee Dugard was alive.

GRACE: It all unraveled, finally, in 2009. Phillip Garrido wanted to go onto the campus of UC-Berkeley and proselytize his own crazy made-up religion, and to do that he had to get a permit. He noticed the girls looked unhealthy. He tried to say that they were his children, his daughters. Something didn`t seem right. They continued to question Garrido. He finally told him he had a criminal history. They immediately contacted authorities.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Investigators left the Concord Police Department saying little about the Jaycee Dugard case, only that there would be more information tomorrow. Jaycee Dugard was 11 years old when she was reportedly kidnapped in South Lake Tahoe 18 years ago. This is the original flyer distributed by the FBI in 1991. Why investigators are in Concord tonight, so many years later, is something they won`t get into just yet.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Is Jaycee Dugard in there?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I cannot talk about it. I`m sorry.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Jaycee`s disappearance prompted a massive widespread search. The nationally televised show "America`s Most Wanted" publicized her abduction. Authorities say Jaycee was walking to her bus stop less than 200 yards from her home when her stepfather saw a couple drag her into their gray car. Her mother made repeated pleas for her daughter`s safe return.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She`s a pretty, young, innocent child, and you may like her, but we love her, too, and it`s time that she comes home to her family. Her sissy`s been asking for her. And she needs to be with us.

GRACE: And within a few days, it all fell apart, and Jaycee Dugard was saved.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The possible Jaycee Dugard sighting was at this Chevron station on Main Street in Oakley (ph). It looked much different then. In 1992, there were actually two pay phones right here, and April 22, at 6:00 p.m., 1992, somebody called the sheriff`s department and said there was a young girl at the window staring at a poster of Jaycee Dugard, and the girl looked just like her.

The caller said the girl walked back to a yellow, possibly a Dodge yellow van. A faded Dodge yellow van was pulled from the Garrido property last month. But that evening, in 1992, the sheriff`s department dispatched a deputy. When he arrived, the girl was gone, so was the yellow van, and so was the anonymous caller. The person never left his name, nor did he leave a license plate number for the van. It turns out Phillip Garrido`s house is just one mile away, less than a four-minute drive. The sheriff`s department would not comment on camera. The sheriff has publicly apologized because the deputy did go to the Garrido house in 2006 on a neighbor`s call, but never searched the hidden backyard.

An employee tells me that even in recent years, Phillip Garrido was a customer at this Chevron station. She could never forget that mole on the side of his nose. The employee declined to go on camera.

Another employee tells me Garrido was a regular here for fresh coffee up until his arrest for the kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard.

In Oakley, Mark Owens (ph), KRON 4 news.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Depended on him for bathroom, food, company.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: You had no water, toothbrush?




UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What was the toilet?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The toilet was a bucket. I had handcuffs on. So it was very difficult. So.

Comes in with a milk shake, and I was getting used to him coming in, but he said things were going to be different.



UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She is still in handcuffs the first time he rapes her.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I remember crying, but they were silent. Just tears running down my face.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: She tells us she remembers seeing a trail of ants make their way towards the untouched milk shake. It will continue day after day.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Before I ate meals, felt like every day. I mean, I don`t -- like I said, time is hard to judge, but -- there`s a switch that I had to shut off.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Just go someplace else.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Just went someplace else.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: At one point he brings in a TV, though she can`t see the news. She doesn`t know her mother is now asking neighbors to keep their porch lights on in case she comes home.


ESTELLE PYFROM: I grew up in segregated south. I actually started picking beans at age 6. But my father, I used to hear him say, if you get a good education, you can get a good job. So we knew that education was important. And in today`s time, many of our children don`t have computers at home, and low-income families don`t have transportation to get to where the computers are. Kids who don`t have access to computers after school will be left behind.

My name is Estelle Pyfrom. At age 71, I took my retirement savings to create a classroom to bring high-tech learning to communities in need.

All right. Let`s get onboard.

Estella`s bus is a mobile learning center.

Are you ready to get on the computers?


PYRFROM: We want to do what we can do to make things better for all, adults as well.


PYFROM: I see the bus as being able to bridge that gap between technology and the lack of it.

60 more to go.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: She helps me by having one-on-one attention. And if I don`t get it, she`ll help me with it. I look forward to it a lot.

PYFROM: How we doing here?

It`s not just a bus. It`s a movement, and we`re going to go from neighborhood to neighborhood and keep making a difference.

CHILDREN: Bye-bye!



GRACE: After her first child was born when she was only 14, that would have been in about 1994, the attacks did slow down. She had a second child three years later, now, in 1997.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It`s hard to believe that story is me. It`s just -- thank you for tonight, and I want to say what an amazing time to be talking about hope. I want to thank my mom for the hope she has always had for me, even when I was far away.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: OK, this one here. We`ve been sleeping in there.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Why is this door locked?



UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Can you move that out, open the door.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We used this bathroom.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All right. What is this door right here?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That`s where we sleep.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I am doing a search. If you stay in this front room, I will have to put you in restraints. Right now, I am searching the house. You can sit here in the front room until it`s over, please.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Are you sure you`re going to let me in this time? Last time you refused for me to be a witness in there.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wait until you read that document. My life has been straightened out, wait until you hear this story of what took place at this house. And you`re going to be absolutely impressed. It`s a disgusting thing that took place with me in the beginning, but I turned my life completely around, and to be able to understand that you have to start there. You`re going to find the most powerful story coming from the witness, the victim. You wait. If you take this a step at a time, you`re going to fall over backwards, and in the end you`re going to find the most powerful, heartwarming story.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Come out that door.



UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The videos are unsteady, and sometimes out of focus, but the intent is clear.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yes. Do you think anybody can see me?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Make it look like you`re pulling at me, (inaudible) you need to pull over in front of me.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Obtained by prosecutors, the videos show convicted sex offender Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy apparently on the prowl in parking lots and in playgrounds surrounded by children.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Got me real good?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes. I can see you really good.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Their team strategy, caught on camera, gives an eerie glimpse on how the duo worked together to observe children, and ultimately kidnap 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard as she walked to the bus stop near her Lake Tahoe home on June 10, 1991. In an interview with ABC`s Diane Sawyer, Dugard recounts Garrido`s giddiness over her capture.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Did they say anything, did you hear anything?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No. Not at first. After we were driving for a while, I heard the driver say, "I can`t believe we got away with it," and he started laughing. I think I blacked out again or something. It was like the most horrible moment of your life, times ten.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That horrible moment continued for the next 18 years. Held captive in the Garrido`s backyard, Dugard was repeatedly raped and gave birth to two children. All the while, Phillip Garrido was on federal and state parole.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Why is this door locked? This door here?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: That`s where we sleep.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Want to turn the light on?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: In another video which was taped by Nancy Garrido, a state parole officer searches the home.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What does a parole agent do for his parolee?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If you stay in this front room, then I don`t have to place you in restraints, because right now I am searching the house.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The search of the home appears to be brief, and the officer never goes into the backyard where he could have discovered Dugard some 30 feet away.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don`t believe it either.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I am doing everything I am supposed to do.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You`re on parole.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Parole officers visited Garrido 60 times at his home, 60 times. Not once did they notice what was happening in the backyard.

In her interview with ABC, Dugard recounts the one time she came face to face with a parole officer, but was too afraid to tell him the truth.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I actually talked to one of the agents, and the agent proceeded to give Phillip his urine test and left. It just made me feel like he didn`t really care.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Luckily, Jaycee Dugard was finally discovered in August, 2009, 18 years after being abducted. The Garridos, convicted of kidnapping and rape, are now in prison for life. From the videos, it is clear law officials failed to do their job. That`s the main reason they say the videos were released by the district attorney`s office, with Dugard`s consent, in the quote, "hopes of improving the supervision and detection of sexual predators."

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Newly released court documents offer a glimpse into Phillip Garrido`s mind. Details from his 1977 trial, where he was convicted of kidnapping and raping Katie Callaway Hall. The night he attacked her, he said, quote, I had this fantasy that was driving me to do this. Inside of me, something that was making me want to do it without no way to stop. Garrido`s first wife, Christine Murphy, speaking out for the first time, describes him as a monster.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I just wanted my life to be the way it used to be, before Philip Garrido.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Garrido also testified in that 1977 trial that intense drug use stimulated his sexual addictions. He says he cruised neighborhoods as a peeping tom, driving around town, exposing himself in public places, including schools. He also testified that he often fantasized about raping women. But he says after turning to God, he started to feel ashamed of his actions.
