Kidnapped Girl Reappears After 18 Years

To the extreme relief of her family, Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped from her family at age 11 in 1991, has emerged alive. Dugard, now 29, spent the last 18 years in a set of creepy backyard shacks behind the home of her alleged kidnapper, convicted rapist Phillip Garrido, who allegedly forced himself on her and fathered her two daughters, now 11 and 15. Garrido and his wife were arrested for kidnapping and conspiracy, and Phillip is also being held on rape charges. Garrido was caught after bringing Dugard and her children to a parole meeting. Garrido, meanwhile, told Sacramento television station KCRA 3 that people should wait to hear from Dugard because she'll tell "the most powerful heartwarming story." Garrido's brother called him "a fruitcake." The Telegraph reports that in recent years, Garrido became convinced that God was talking to him, inventing a "headphone amplification system" to help him focus the voices in his head, and claiming to be speaking in "the tongues of angels."
