Sheriff: Bone fragment found near Garrido home 'probably human'

Posted: 07:59 AM ET

Bone fragment found near the California home where Jaycee Dugard is said to have been confined for 18 years is "probably human," a sheriff's spokesman said Tuesday.

Investigators said they found the bone last week on a neighbor's property in an area that Dugard's accused captor and rapist, Philip Garrido, had access to.

The fragment, which was analyzed by an outside expert, will go on to the state DNA lab for testing, Jimmy Lee, director of Public Affairs for the Contra Costa County's Sheriff's Office said in an e-mail.

"The expert has determined that the bone fragment found in the backyard of Garrido's neighbor is probably human," Lee said.

"We will be requesting the state to see if it can develop a DNA profile on the fragment. It should be noted that it is not uncommon to find Native American remains in Contra Costa County," he said.

Garrido and his wife, Nancy, have pleaded not guilty to 29 felony charges, including rape and kidnapping, stemming from Dugard's disappearance when she was 11 years old.

These two nutcases are the real PEDOPHILES.....not those other innocent people out there who are sometimes labelled so unfairly. LET THEM ROT IN PRISON.......THEY BOTH KNOW THE INSIDE OF A PRISON ALREADY ANYWAY.....

Larry, just to let you know I really enjoyed your show last night. I really like Judge Judy! She is no nonsense! I also agree with her about pedophiles I also think they should be executed!!!!! She was right when she said they have their wires crossed. Those could be uncrossed real quick! About 2000 volts to the brain from old sparky would do the trick!!!! Keep up the good work!!!!!!

I think this is just the system could have let this monster roam around..and this enabled him to kidnap this girl and torture her mentally for the 18 years that she was brainwashed and kept captive in his residence...sick pedophiles like this deserve nothing better than to be locked up for life without the possiblility of parole or they should be on death row awaiting execution!!!! How can parents keep their children safe when there are sick freaks like him around waiting for the chance to do something so Horrible..This is a Great INJUSTICE to the Legal System letting these MONSTERS slip away so easily.

I would like to know what criteria does the legal system go by in order to release these kinds of criminals! I am so fed up when these criminals are released, allowed to roam the streets and neighborhoods, and commit another crime. Garrido and his wife should had been locked up in jail a long time ago. The justice system needs to be overhauled and the judges, police, and parole officers need to be re-educated again! Too many innocent victims had suffered too much injustice inflicted to them and never seem to recover fully...they may get the therapy they needed but the painful memories still linger on.

I tell you folks, the only lasting solution to this evil problem is.

"CASTRATION" to all who would soil our world with their develish behavior.

I'm not surprised. This "man" and his wife should be locked up in a cold, dark room and the key should be thrown away.
