Not sure there is much more left to say. ...
As today closed, we learned that authorities are now searching the hellhole Antioch home of Phillip and Nancy Garrido, Jaycee Dugard's accused kidnappers, for evidence that could link Phillip Garrido to a string of prostitute killingsi n the 1990s.
What in the hell did Jaycee Dugard and her daughters, fathered by registered sex offender Phillip Garrido, have to live with? I'm feeling overwhelmed, speechless.
Oh, and then there was Contra Costa County Sheriff Warren Rupf's devastating admission earlier today "that a deputy missed an opportunity to rescue Dugard in 2006," after "a neighbor tipped authorities that young children were living in squalor" in Garrido's backyard.
The deputy went to the house but did not ask to look in the backyard and concluded that, at most, the situation was a code violation, Rupf said.
Meanwhile, news broke late this afternoon that the foster parents of a missing 5-year-old Fremont boy with cerebral palsy have been arrested in connection with his death.
The San Francisco Chronicle says Louis Ross, 38, is being held on suspicion of the murder of Hasanni Campbell: Jennifer Campbell, 33, who is Hasanni's aunt and Ross' fiancee and who is reportedly six months pregnant, "was being held on charges related to homicide." The body of the boy, missing since August 10, has not been found; police are searching Ross and Campbell's Fremont home.
Okay, I need to stop reading the news right now. I am going to take my son and his friend and meet my husband for dinner, and I will try to be thankful for this time that we have together tonight.
