Phillip Garrido bragged that "his daughter" was the talent behind the graphic design and production at his family printing business, even introducing her to customers.
But it was his odd and escalating religious fervor that troubled those who knew Garrido, the registered sex offender now accused of abducting 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard and holding her for 18 years.
"Sometimes when I go there, she comes out with the work, wearing gloves, with ink all over her clothes," said longtime customer Deepal Karunaratne, about Jaycee, now 29.
The realtor often picked up his orders at the Garridos' Antioch-area house. "He introduced her to me as his daughter."
Lovely children's designs decorated the receipts and envelopes made for a Pittsburg recycling center. They were done by his "daughter," Garrido proudly told Maria Christenson of Christenson Recycling Center.
"There was nothing weird with him at the beginning," recalled Christenson. "But I noticed a year ago he just went off the deep end."
