ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Jaycee Lee Dugard’s daughters, named by Phillip Garrido as “Starlite” and “Angel”, never knew their mother was a kidnapping victim. When Jaycee Lee Dugard and her daughters were freed, Dugard’s family and Jaycee Lee had to tell the teenage children the shocking news. This week, in a prepared statement, Jaycee Lee Dugard told Phillip Garrido she didn’t want her, nor her children, to spend another second of their life around him, nor thinking about him.
Phillip Garrido kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard at age 11 in 1991. Years later, she had two girls with Garrido. Garrido named the girls Starlite and Angel. When Dugard and the girls were freed, her stepfather Carl Probyn told news that Jaycee Lee “had to explain…. she had been kidnapped. [Her daughters] didn’t know that”.
One witness Cheyvonne Molino had told news that he had seen Jaycee Lee Dugard’s children in public before. “The girls were polite, they played with my daughter in my office, sometimes on the internet.” Molino invited the girls to his daughter’s Sweet Sixteen party. Garrido agreed and brought the young girls. But he took them home early saying they were not use to loud noise. Witnesses called the girls charming, but living in a “substandard” condition.

The change came when UCB officials saw the girls. As earlier detailed on LALATE, Garrido sought University of California, Berkeley permission to hold a religious function that would include the girls passing out flyers.
Ally Jacobs, interviewing security officer, said one girl had a peculiar bump about her right eye. The daughter’s response was that it was only a “birth defect”. Jacobs deemed the response false and prepared. She additionally said that the daughter were talking as if Garrido was a spiritual figure.
In a statement read before court this week by her mother Terry Probyn, Dugard said “I chose not to be here today because I refuse to waste another second of my life in your presence.” She added “Both of you can save your apologies and empty words… For all the crimes you have both committed, I hope you have as many sleepless nights as I did.”
Probyn called Garrido and his wife “self-serving, self-gratifying monsters.” Judge Douglas Phimster said to Phillip Garrido, “You lack a soul.”
