This is one key question many of us have wondered about but have probably thought too indelicate to ask, at least publicly. After all, we're wondering about a pretty horrific possibility, whether accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido also molested the two daughters, 11 and 15, that he fathered with his alleged victim and hostage of 18 years, Jaycee Lee Dugard.
Apparently, he didn't.
"She's saying he didn't touch her kids," says one law enforcement source who is following the investigation. This news is according to the Matier & Ross column in Sunday's San Francisco Chronicle.
Garrido and his wife Nancy are suspected of housing Jaycee Dugard, now 29, and her daughters in a hidden lair of tents and sheds in the back of their large property in unincorporated Antioch. During her entire captivity, which started when she was kidnapped at age 11 from her South Lake Tahoe home in June 1991, Dugard never went to school or saw a doctor. This includes when she became pregnant as a young teenager with her two daughters, and when she gave birth to them.
Both Garridos have been charged with raping Dugard. But according to Matier and Ross, "Dugard is telling authorities that Phillip Garrido 'hadn't touched her in years,' one source says."
