18 Years in a Sex-Slave Yard-Cage

Updated on November 29, 2010

Jaycee Lee Dugard- Missing 18 years

Remember Josef Fritzl in Austria?

Eighteen years ago, (June 10th, 1991) in South Lake Tahoe, California, an 11-year old girl was abducted outside her home on the way to a bus stop. Two assholes in a car grabbed the young girl, Jaycee Lee Dugard, and pulled her into the vehicle while her horrified stepfather unsuccessfully tried to chase after them. Years have been spent trying to find the missing girl and her story even appeared on “America’s Most Wanted."

Most would have assumed, after so many years, that poor Jaycee Lee was long deceased or otherwise unfindable; but to everyone’s amazement, she has been found alive and in good health. Unfortunately, during those 18 years, Jaycee Lee had been kept as a sex slave by a convicted rapist/sick fuck by the name of Phillip Garrido.

Garrido, 59, has a long criminal history that included the kidnapping and rape of a, then, 25 year old woman in the 1970’s. Garrido was released on parole and had been meeting with his parole officer since then, all the while keeping Jaycee Lee as a sex slave, literally, in his own back yard.

In Antioch, California, 170 miles from where Jaycee was abducted, Garrido had a nice suburban home. In the large backyard, he had an additional fenced off area that contained tents, sheds, and outhouses. This area was surrounded by vegetation and other objects that hid it from view. At times, however, neighbors grew suspicious when they would here voices coming from the tents often enough for them to suspect that people where living in the enclosure, but they did not notify authorities. (One neighbor seriously thought about inquiring further or notifying authorities but her husband told her that it was better to just mind their own business). One structure in the yard-cage was found to have been soundproofed for reasons one can only imagine.

Philip Garrido lived in the home with his wife Nancy Garrido who is suspected of having been Phillip’s accomplice when he wickedly snatched Jaycee Lee. Nancy had been described as “a robot” who would obey her sick, twisted husband without question. It can be assumed from reports that she also knew that two other children who lived in the yard-cage were his children that had been conceived when he raped Jaycee Lee.

Many who knew Phillip Garrido suspected that he wasn’t quite right in the head. His own brother described him as a fruitcake and his father said that he had “absolutely lost his mind” from excessive LSD use in the past. Others who knew him said that he would make bizarre statements and claimed that he had a box that God would speak to him through. He said he could speak to others simply by thinking it. He felt he could control sound with his mind and invented a device that would let others witness this talent. People were concerned because he would spontaneously break into song and seemed to be proselytizing as though he was ready to start his own church. Garrido even registered a corporation under the name God’s Desire. (What a sick fucking piece of shit).

Phillip Garrido’s wackiness was brought to the attention of authorities when he showed up at the University of California at Berkeley with a bunch of religious handouts and two young girls who were 11 and 15. Garrido seemed to be acting oddly and was asked for identification by campus police who discovered that he was on probation through a background check and notified his probation officer. This officer then requested an interview with Garrido who showed up with the two young girls and a woman who he called Allissa.

Well, as you can guess, Allissa was really Jaycee Lee! This dude had the balls to bring his captives to the probation office! This is where Garrido let the cat out of the semen stained bag and now he’s in jail and Jaycee Lee is finally free along with the kids who are now older than she was when she was abducted. Crazy shit!

One has to wonder how Garrido would explain himself. Well he had this to say: “You’re going to be absolutely impressed…You’re going to find the most powerful, heartwarming story.” He went on to say something to the effect that he is a changed man, presumably, because of his new found faith. Well that should serve him well in the slammer - where he should have been all these years instead of having sick fun raping in his yard-cage.

As for Jaycee’s stepfather who witnessed the appalling abduction that fateful day 18 years ago, he is overjoyed that his daughter has been returned. He had tears in his eyes when talking about how devastating this kidnapping had been. “It broke my marriage up. I’ve gone through hell. I mean I was a suspect up until yesterday.” It’s said that Jaycee’s mother would take time off every year from work around the anniversary of her disappearance and would cry the entire time over her lost child.

For those of you reading this know that, as sick as this story is, it is only the tip of the iceberg. Sex slavery such as this has been happening here in America for decades. There are many other documented cases of similar things happening. There is no way to tell how prevalent it is. There could be hundreds of people like Jaycee Lee right under our noses. International sex trafficking is something that has increased significantly with the use of the internet in networking pedophiles and other sexual predators. Everyone should be made aware of what can happen in our own backyard. Keep your eyes and ears open.

The Garridos - Sick Fucks

      This is indeed a sad story. Even sadder, more missing children could be slaves. Hopefully, they will be rescued like Jaycee Lee.

      My heart goes to Jaycee Lee Dugard for suffering 18 years as a sex slave with the hands of her abductor. Good to hear that she is back home safe. As a parent of two girls my main priority is their safety. Incident like this should be prevented that’s the reason why I registered my two girls in SafeKidZone it’s a mobile security application that has a panic button to press if an emergency arises it will notifies me, trusted friends and the nearest 911 on our area, and not only that I can easily locate them anytime, anywhere. Protect your kids now

      Reading this I feel like crying. This stuff is so hard to stomach. Feelings of anger and sorrow only begin to describe how this topic makes me feel. The sad thing is this crime is one that profits people in some parts of the world. Take a story like this and add the sale of young girls to other sicko's and you begin to see just how deeply evil some people can be.

      Unpleasantly well done hub, as a society we need to eliminate the iceberg. No child should be exposed to suffering a titanic like fate.

      Check my hub outlining methods to clear their path.

      A good but disturbing hub. It's hard to understand how our fellow humans can behave in such depraved ways.
