Jaycee Dugard's aunt: 'This is a joyful time'

Posted: 07:40 AM ET

A California woman who turned up alive 18 years after being kidnapped at age 11 is reconnecting with her family after nearly two decades apart, her aunt said Thursday.

Police said Thursday that the man charged with abducting and raping Jaycee Lee Dugard had been accused of raping a 14-year-old in 1972, but those charges were dropped for unknown reasons.

"I think there's a good chance of that, yes," Antioch Police Lt. Leonard Orman said when asked whether he believed that other victims would be found.

Dugard is spending time in "a secluded place, reconnecting" with her mother and younger sister, said Jaycee's aunt, Tina Dugard, who spent time with them.

The two children born to her during her captivity are "clever, articulate, curious girls," she said.

"This is a joyful time for my family," she said. "Jaycee remembers all of us."

Jaycee Lee Dugard was kidnapped in 1991 from a bus stop near her home in South Lake Tahoe, California, and discovered last week. Authorities say a couple kidnapped her and raised her in a compound of tents and outbuildings in the backyard of their Antioch, California, home for 18 years.

Hello!
Thank you for your report on Michael Jackson’s burial report. Throughout the program I enjoyed it but I just want to add something when some one said that Michael Jackson’s alienated his black fans or his black community embraced him later in a complex way. Though it was not very clear in which sense he exactly he meant it but I want to add my comment on this.
To understand Michael Jackson as an hundred percent professional and genius star it is not so easy from just an outsider’s view. You have to understand Michael Jackson from Michael’s personal viewpoint as a normal human being having exceptionally high self-image together with enormous self-esteem. Probably this could be the secret of his dazzling success and popularity.

Individual like Michael Jackson having such huge self-image and self-esteem would never want to be viewed as “stereotype black man”. We all normal human being having normal self-image or self-esteem don’t want to be recognized as stereo-type black or white or brown or Asian. How could Michael Jackson having such gigantic self-image view himself as a stereo-type black? Michael throughout his life tried to break many barriers, boundaries or rules which most of us ever knew existed.

I am not sure exact about the medical reason but the changing of skin, changing of face or changing of hair texture is a part of his efforts to break those stereo-type barriers. The change physical appearance may seem “odd” or “strange” to ordinary people or fans but they are part and parcel of Michael Jackson’s creativity. This kind of transformation may have raised eyebrows among his community or among the fans which may gave Jackson the image of an eccentric or quirk personality. His relationships/affairs with white, famous, beautiful women are also examples of breaking those boundaries what a stereo-type black man can’t do.
Michael Jackson’s eccentricity may have disappointed or even angered some of his fans but that is also the reason of his more global popularity and recognition. The mystery and curiosity he created in his personal life added to more popularity and success. The effort to change his religion or even the pronunciation of his name on his last years is probably another effort to change his stereo-type identity.
It is easy to say about him that “you may love him or you may hate him but you can’t ignore him.”
It might be true that Michael Jackson was a tortured soul or abused as a child which is also a part of his creativity, but that’s another story altogether.
Thank you.
Sunjoy

I AM DISGUSTED WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT I MADE A SIMILIAR COMPLAINT ABOUT A SEX OFFENDER LIVING WITHIN A SHORT DISTANCE FROM A ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. AND THE CHIEF OF POLICE LIED ABOUT AN INJUNCTION THAT THIS SEX OFFENDER HAD WHICH HE DID NOT HAVE OR QUALIFY FOR.
AND THE PROBATION DEPARTMENT LET THIS INDIVIDUAL RUN WILD EVEN AFTER NOTIFYING THEM OF HIS OUT RADICIOUS CONDUCT. AFTER MAKING NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS WHICH ARE DOCUMENTED BOTH AUDIO AND VIDEO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT CHANGED THE LAW REGARDING THE DISTANCE ALLOTED TO LIVE TO CATER TO THE SEX OFFENDERS (KEEP IN MIND THE SEX OFFENDERS COUSIN WAS IN THE SUPREME COURT JUDGES SONS WEDDING THE JUDGE ALSO TRIED THIS SEX OFFENDERS CASE AND REDUCED HIS CONVICTION BY TWO COUNTS) BECAUSE THIS FAMILY OWNS A PROMINENT BUISNESS

CASTRATION, CASTRATION, CASTRATION.

mrs garrido is claiming to be a victim ????? she kept jaycee there captive while the husband was in jail.... she could have let her go and gotten help from the police herself, if she was a victim or if she felt she was in danger......she needs to be in jail for the rest of her life...they both belong "under the jail" !!!!!!!!!!!!!

i cannot believe that Phillip Garridos relatives that lived in Antioch did not know what was going on with Phillip. He had relatives living in Antioch. I think these people need to be invistigated. Thank you

I agree with Gerald, castration, mutalation, and torture by a prison population where is the prime target. He needs to die a horrible death.


Gerald Jolly   September 6th, 2009 12:46 pm ET

A fitting penalty for this "VILE PIECE OF EXCREMENT"

CASTRATION, CASTRATION, CASTRATION.

AND A SENTENCE OF LIFE IN PRISON, WITH THE PROMISE THAT HIS CELLMATE, WILL BE "BIG AMOS", THE FORNICATOR OF MEN

I am very happy Jaycee and her daughters are freed.I did not like when Larry asked Katie Callaway Hall's husband why he married her knowing what had been done to her!!!DOUBLE VICTIM!! This woman ,Katie has not only endured a tramatic rape/kidnapping that scarred her life but then is asked question like she is "less than Normal" Kudos to her husband,if it was me I'd have walked out of his"interview'


kari eckert   September 9th, 2009 9:45 am ET

Thank You to Larry King for pursuing this horrible subject , also to Judge Judy!!!!! This will force our establishment to take a whole new look at Sex Offenders. (the worst criminals that excist among us) It is painful just watching these poor Victims. How much more horrible it must be for them!

To those of you who want justice for Jaycee Duggart.

If you use the analogy of any and all animals "GIRRADO" being an animal and what happens when any animal is "CASTRATED"

The answer is, the animal looses all its sex drive and the urge to pro-create.

The only solution for Girrado and all child molesting deviates is "CASTRATION"

If our justice system is incapable of monitoring these vile preditors when they are released from prison, then good logic would be to insure the safety of, not only children, but all those that are targets for these deviates.

Some would say that "FORCED CASTRATION" is inhuman, but I do not suggest that the culprit should have castration forced on him.

Castration should be one of the conditions of his early release on parole, the option should be left up to the "CULPRIT"

If he wants an early release he must willingly submit to voluntary castration, otherwise do every day of the sentense imposed on him.

In the case of "GIRRADO" he was released on parole after only doing seven years out of a fifty year sentense, and if the castration rule was not acceptable to him, this "RAT" would still be in prison today, and Jaycee would not have had to suffer the degradation and abuse she did.

CASTRATION, IS THE ONLY LOGICAL SOLUTION IN ALL MATTERS OF SEXUAL PREDATION, BY THE ANIMALS THAT WOULD PREY ON OUR CHILDREN, AND OUR WOMEN.


Gerald Jolly   September 9th, 2009 2:04 pm ET

Sunjoy, you're really not a joy.

If you want to blog about Micheal Jackson, go to the format.

I guess it must be hard for you to distinguish between a CHILD MOLESTING PREDITOR, and MICHEAL JACKSON.

But try and get on the right page O.K.

This is such a sad case for Jaycee, for her mom, aunt, stepdad, and for those two innocent daughters. I am sure that even with the best of therapy they will never recover from the trauma or the tragedy which stole a little girls life. There is not any justice that would even the score with this animal and his wife. But , the two of them will have to answer for their crimes one day when they leave this world, if you believe in heaven and hell.
