Religious pamphlet hander-outer is “a psychotic sex addict who was housing children in tents in his backyard”August 29, 2009
Since (as we all know) America is Jesus’s favorite country , like any other red-blooded American, I too find it galling whenever another country manages to beat us at something. It’s mostly been China pummeling us with their massive consumer base and accelerating industrial strength, but lately, even shamefully small players, like Austria, will manage to top us. For instance, in the heinous sex crimes area. Fortunately, we Americans are making a comeback!
…on Friday, Mr. Garrido, 58, and his wife, Nancy, 54, were arraigned on more than two dozen counts of kidnapping, rape, false imprisonment and other charges in connection with Ms. Dugard’s abduction in 1991 as she walked to a bus stop in South Lake Tahoe. She was 11.
Ms. Dugard and her two daughters — both fathered by Mr. Garrido, the police said, when Ms. Dugard was a teenager — had been living in a squalid compound hidden behind Mr. Garrido’s plain single-story house.
According to the authorities, Ms. Dugard, 29, and her children, 11 and 15, lived in a dirt-floor compound about the size of a tennis court and consisting of several ragged tents, hand-built sheds and small efforts at creature comforts: a set of wind chimes, for example, and a dingy couch.
Mr. Probyn said Ms. Dugard had told her mother that she sometimes was forced to live in a box, and the police said that at least one of the sheds was soundproof. As investigators prowled the compound this week, a wire cage could be seen next to a tent.
Apparently the police missed several opportunities to investigate Garrido’s backyard, even after a 911 call that said that “Mr. Garrido was a psychotic sex addict who was housing children in tents in his backyard.” Damn those crank callers!!!
So how was it that they finally figured out that Garrido was, indeed, a psychotic sex addict housing children in tents in his backyard?
His arrest on Wednesday came after he attracted attention from the campus police at the University of California, Berkeley, two days before, when he wanted to hand out religious pamphlets. A university spokesman, Dan Mogulof, said Mr. Garrido had been accompanied by two children, who caught the eye of campus personnel because they were “almost robotic.”
I’m sure you have, at one point or another been aggressively approached by gaunt looking middle-aged men yelling about homos or some shit. Well. One of them was a psychotic sex addict housing children in tents in his backyard.
Also, good job UCPD! For the first time in your long history of yelling at people on bikes, shining flashlights into trees, and harassing certain well-known student publications on Sproul, you’ve done something worth doing!
