The 18-year mystery surrounding the kidnapping case of Jaycee Dugard ended last week when a sex offender admitted to correction authorities that he abducted her.
Dugard was 11-years-old when she was snatched from the street in front of her house in 1991. She had two children with Phillip Garrido, the man accused of taking her, and since her kidnapping she has lived in her alleged abductor’s backyard, in a shed. All of this played out in a residential neighborhood.
