U.S.: Hmm: Jaycee Dugard’s family had an unremarkable public life

  • Her children went to a birthday party just two weeks ago. Obviously, there are many strange things about the Jaycee Dugard/Phillip Garrido saga, but the strangest is that from the outside, their lives seemed somewhat normal. One person who knows Garrido and his family, Cheyvonne Molino, says that the media “made it seem like these little girls were living like wolves or jungle kids in the backyard dungeon.” What did stand out: One of Garrido’s customers says that the teenage girls dressed “very conservatively.” Hmm. source

U.S.: Kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard wasn’t always stuck inside a tent

  • She did graphic design work for her captor. Uh. While Jaycee Dugard was largely kept in a tent with her two children, she wasn’t always hidden in there. Suspect Phillip Garrido owned a printing business, and based on one customer’s account, she did graphic design work for his business under the pseudonym “Allyssa.” “She was the design person; she did the art work; she was the genius,” said patron Ben Daughdrill. Another bizarre turn in a bizarre case. source
