Katherine Callaway Hall, a Las Vegas woman kidnapped and raped by Phillip Garrido in 1976, talked about her kidnapping and rape by the man who allegedly did the same to Jaycee Lee Dugard, on Good Morning America Tuesday.
Garrido served an 11-year prison sentence in connection with the incident, Callaway Hall said, which occurred when she was a 25-year-old mother-of-one, and on the way to a South Lake Tahoe grocery store to pick up some coffee. She said Garrido, complaining of car troubles, asked her for a ride.
Callaway Hall said Garrido then attacked her, handcuffed her, and took her to a deserted Reno warehouse he customized to his perversions — complete with a projector, pornographic materials, and a mattress on the floor — where the sex assault took place continuously for eight hours.
After Garrido admitted the crime to officials, he described himself as a “peeping tom” with rape fantasies at his trial.
Callaway Hall said she is relieved Garrido is in custody, so she “doesn’t have to stay under the radar anymore,” and participate in social networking activities, such as Facebook, she previously avoided to avoid him.
Police Monday found a bone fragment at a house adjacent to Garrison’s, who is in custody on suspicion of various kidnapping and sex charges, accused of kidnapping Dugard in 1991 and keeping her imprisoned for 18 years, during which time she bore two of his children. His wife, Nancy Garrido, 54, is also in custody on kidnapping charges.
She had poignant advice for the Dugard family regarding having Jaycee back in the fray, after 18 years of imprisonment at the hands of the convicted rapist.
“Let her cry, let her talk — its gonna be a long road,” Callaway Hall said of Dugard’s life post-Garrido.
