Editor's Note: Larry King Live will have the latest developments on the case tonight at 9pmET/6pmPT.
His own dad thinks he's not only a sexually perverted monster, but a murderer, too.
Manuel Garrido, 87, sullenly acknowledged yesterday that he believes his son Phillip - charged in the horrifying child abduction and rape of Jaycee Dugard - is also the killer in a slew of unsolved cases involving prostitutes and other young women.
"He was a sex addict - that was his problem," Manuel Garrido told The Post. "I believe my son killed the prostitutes."
Meanwhile, authorities combing through the Antioch, Calif., house and property where Garrido and his wife, Nancy, lived - keeping a secret hell-hole compound of shacks and sheds to conceal Jaycee and the two daughters fathered by Phillip Garrido - started to board up the home yesterday afternoon.
Officials fear that disgusted neighbors will try to burn the place down, sources said.
The Garridos have been charged in the abduction and rape case involving Dugard, who was kidnapped at age 11 from a bus stop near her South Lake Tahoe home and turned into a sex slave for 18 years.
