From the front it looks like a normal tract home but an aerial view shows the chilling network of tarps and tents which Phillip Garrido used to keep Jaycee Lee Dugard as a hostage for eighteen years. RadarOnline.com brings you closer to the bizarre story with photos of Garrido’s compound.

Dugard was kidnapped in 1991 while she was waiting for a school bus and was hidden by the tarps which were not visible from the neighbors house despite being only a few feet away. The sheds had electricity and the secret backyard set-up included an outhouse and shower.
She had two daughters with Garrido and bore her first one at the age of 14. Neither children have ever been to school or seen a doctor despite being 11 and 15 years of age.
Garrido had a history of criminal behavior: he was on federal parole and had a rape and kidnapping conviction stemming from 1971. He and his wife Nancy were arrested shortly after a visit with his parole officer.
Dugard is being reunited with her family.
