Before his arrest last week, Phillip Garrido ran a small printing business from his home. Bizarrely, his kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard, who Garrido called “Allissa” had most of the contact with customers by phone and email.
Philip and his wife Nancy were charged on Friday with 29 counts of kidnap, rape and other offenses
The charges came as a shock to Ben Daughdrill, who used to own a junk hauling business called AD Hauling in Oakley, CA, and did business with Garrido for six years.
“Everything about Garrido was weird,” Daughdrill told RadarOnline.com “He was a strange guy who I’d keep at arms length. He was a shady guy. He was off his rocker. But I did not sense danger from Garrido. He was just a weird guy that you did not know what to expect from.”
Daughdrill told us he met Jaycee, who he knew only as Allissa, twice. “She seemed happy and very normal.”
In fact, the emails she sent him about his printing orders didn’t give a hint as to what her life was really about.
On May 7, 2007, she wrote: “I will take a look at the price sheet and send you over a copy of the revised brochure tomorrow. as to the pictures sorry … but we don’t have a digital camera … hopefully you can find a way to get me those pictures you want so i can add them to them brochure. i can get the brochures to you pretty fast within the week of final approval of the brochures. How many are you going to order and do you want them on glossy or matte paper, thick or thin?”
And on January 21, 2008, Dugard wrote: “heres the business cards in jpeg format let me know if you need anything else thank you.”
Police and FBI are continuing to investigate the house where Jaycee was held captive for 18 years and have now added a neighboring house to the crime scene.
