Jaycee Lee Dugard is Found after 18 Year Abduction

1554 Walnut Ave. Antioch, California
2009-08-27
Another set of sick humans will be locked up - hopefully for the remainder of their miserable lives...

Jaycee Dugard was held captive by Phillip Garrido and his wife Nancy since they abducted her on June 10, 1991. Oddly, on August 25th Garrido along with a two girls were distributing religious literature at UC Berkeley. This raised the suspicion of campus police who investigated.

In the end it turns out the two girls are the daughters of Jaycee that she had in captivity. The whole story is very sad and very disturbing.

The maps views show the mish-mash of out buildings in the backyard where Jaycee and her daughter were kept imprisoned. The Bird's eye view is quite good. The Google Street View, although indicating 1550 Walnut is truly 1554. This is confirmed via the substantial aerial news footage that is available.
