Girl Missing Since 1991 Finally Found - Alive!
In news that is so very rare in these cases, it seems that a woman, who was kidnapped as a young girl at the age of eleven way back in 1991, has finally been found. And what's best, is that she's actually alive!
The Return of Jaycee Lee Dugard
Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was a blond, ponytailed, 11-year-old girl when she was abducted right in front of her stepfather as she headed to a school bus stop 18 years ago, has finally made her way to freedom, and is soon to be reunited with her parents.
The woman walked into a San Francisco Bay area police station and said she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, the girl who had been kidnapped 18 years ago. And thankfully, it doesn't seem to be just some misguided loony claiming to be the kidnapped girl. According to Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado Sheriff's Department, they're actually about 99% sure that it's her.
Her family has been contacted, and they're currently in the process of arranging a meeting. Carl Probyn, Jaycee Lee Dugard's stepfather, said that the news was "like winning a lottery." I'll bet! Wow, can you imagine how happy they must feel right now?! I'm majoryly hyped just knowing about it!
Update: Jaycee Lee Dugard (not Kaycee Lee Dugard, for those who've been misspelling it) was reunited with her mother, who was overjoyed to learn that her daughter, who she thought was dead, was actually alive and well. :)
Arrest of the Lowlife Scumbags
And as if this story couldn't get any better, the authorities have also arrested the two lowlife scumbags, 58-year-old Phillip Garrido and his 54-year-old wife Nancy Garrido, who are suspected of being the kidnappers.
According to Yahoo! News, "Phillip Garrido is also being held for investigation of rape by force, lewd and lascivious acts with a minor and sexual penetration, said Jimmie Lee, a spokesman for the Contra Costa Sheriff's Department.
Phillip Garrido has a conviction for rape by force or fear, and was paroled from a Nevada state prison in 1999, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation."
Apparently, California corrections officials called Phillip Garrido in for questioning on Wednesday after they received a report that he had been seen with two small children at the University of California in Berkeley. When he arrived, he was accompanied by two children and two adult women.
According to Yahoo! News: "The diligent questioning and follow-up by the parolee's agent of record led to Garrido revealing his kidnapping of the adult female," the department said in a statement. "It was further revealed by Garrido that she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, and that the children were his."
Update: Law enforcement officials now believe that Jaycee Lee Dugard was kept in a shed and used a sex slave for Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy Garrido. Assholes. Jaycee apparently became pregnant several times during her captivity and had at least two children. Those children made Garrido's parole officer suspicious, which led to his arrest.
Let's just hope that these two worthless mofos are behind bars for the rest of their lives!
