Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped 18 years ago from her bus stop in California, on June 10th, 1991 by Phillip Garrido and his own wife Nancy Garrido, She was only 11 years old. Her stepfather Carl watched this happen but failed to catch up with the car. Dugard was driven two hours away from her home and dumped in a shed in Garridos backyard, naked and handcuffed and told her that there were very mean dogs outside that would hurt her if she escaped.


Over the next 18 years, Dugard was raped and tortured. She even had kids with Garrido! She was 13 when she had her first child with no doctors or medicine! And 15 when she had her second child! Jaycee finally comes open about her experience after stating "I want everyone to know the nasty things he did to me, And to know what discusting man he is, if thats what he even is". Dugard is now writing a book about her time with Garrido called "A Stolen Life".
