In a shocking world exclusive video interview with RadarOnline.com, an ex-friend of Phillip Garrido's reveals the accused kidnapper's heavy cocaine use and descent into madness.
Garrido and his wife are charged with multiple felonies in the kidnapping of Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was held for 18 years by the demented couple.
But the warning signs that Garrido was a sexually perverse monster headed for big trouble were apparent far earlier, says his ex-pal Eddie Loebs.
"I'm glad he's finally getting what he deserves," Loebs told RadarOnline.com in our exclusive video interview.
Loebs and Garrido played together in a band in the late 1970s and Garrido's drug use was out of control. Loebs describes how Garrido ingested huge amounts of cocaine, one time using a full-length mirror to put out three lines of cocaine that were at least three feet long and led to a pile of the drug.
At the same time Garrido's sexual appetite was out of control and he did nothing to curb it, even kicking his first wife, Christine Murphy, out of the bedroom when he brought home groupies.
His ex-pal describes Garrido's increasing obsessions, including one with pornography. And he remembers the kidnapper once wrote a song called "Insanity" and part of the lyrics were "I'm going, yes I'm going insane."
Loebs' wife did not like Garrido and gave him the nickname "Filthy." She called him this ""because of his womanizing, basically the womanizing and his association with pornography."
Reacting to the news of Garrido's arrest and the details of how he tortured his victims, Loebs told RadarOnline.com: "It doesn't surprise me. I'm really sorry that he stooped that low to commit those crimes."
