I’m going to keep this post short and to the point. I took the evening off tonight to enjoy a movie with my girls but they are in bed and I noticed that I had several breaking news alerts concerning the discovery of a girl who was kidnapped in 1991 and the arrest of her captor, an American version of Josef Fritzl. There are several other sites that are already covering this in depth and so I will link to them at the bottom of the post.
The gist of the story is that 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard was abducted in 1991 right in front of her step-father who was watching her walk to catch the school bus. Phillip Garrido, a convicted sex offender has been arrested along with his wife Nancy for keeping Dugard in a shed in his back yard for the last 18 years along with her two children whom Phillip Garrido fathered.
Here are links you’ll want to check out for the full story, True Crime Report has an extremely well-done and documented post and My Life of Crime has lots of links.
