Bone fragment found near Garrido home is likely human

September 9, 2009

(ChattahBox) — A bone fragment found on a California property where alleged kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido once lived, likely is human, but more tests are needed  an official said Tuesday. The fragment was found Aug. 31 at a parcel outside Antioch, Calif., near the home where Garrido and his wife, Nancy, allegedly held Jaycee Dugard captive for 18 years.  Garrido took care of the property when it was vacant in 2006, authorities said, and sometimes lived in a red plank shed in the backyard.

Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jimmy Lee said, the fragment would be sent to a state laboratory to determine if a DNA profile could be created. However he cautioned it is possible that the bone could be that of a Native American Indian, which wouldn’t be an unusual find in the area, he said.  Authorities have been searching for evidence that might connect the Garridos to other kidnappings and homicides in the area, but as of last week, they had not found any, Lee said.  Garrido, 58, and his 54-year-old wife, Nancy, were arrested Aug. 26 and charged with 29 felony counts of rape and kidnapping in the 1991 abduction of 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard, who authorities say bore Garrido two daughters after she was snatched from a street near her home in South Lake Tahoe.
