Suspect in abduction of Jaycee Lee Dugard being investigated as serial killer

August 28, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Police who are still very actively working on putting all the pieces together in the abduction of Jaycee Lee Dugard, 18 years ago when she was just 11-years-old, are expanding their investigation against the main suspect. Apparently Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender who was somehow underestimated as harmless is now being investigated in the serial killings of 10 prostitutes in the late 1990s near where he Garrido lived and worked. Law enforcement conducted a new search today of the home Garrido 58, and his wife, Nancy Garrido, where police say they held Jaycee Lee Dugard and the two daughters she had by Garrido, captive for 18 years.

Law enforcement are just starting to take heat for possible missed opportunities to solve this case sooner. One known missed opportunity involved an unnamed deputy who was dispatched to the Garridos’ home in 1996 after a 911 caller reported that a “psychotic” Garrido had sexual addictions and erected tents in his back yard where children were living, Rupf said. Instead of investigating, the deputy warned Garrido that the tents could be a code violation, and never checked out the shabby hovels where the psycho suspect was holding Jaycee and the daughters Garrido fathered with his captive.

    The missed chances to save victims are common in the cases of serial killers, of psychopaths like this. It’s always enough to make you ill when you realize something could have been done.

    It is a miracle that she is alive. I pray that she can recover from this ordeal.
