According to CBS News, Philip and Nancy Garrido, the kidnappers of Jaycee Dugard, are no longer allowed to talk to each other on the phone. They had previously been allowed to have monthly conversations, but the police say the Garridos have abused their privilege (NOT “privelege,” CBS News! bad editor!) and so the convos have been suspended, pending a court hearing to have them stopped permanently.
Philip Garrido, whom everyone and their massage therapist knows kidnapped Jaycee Dugard, has been cleared of suspicion in the 1989 murders of siblings Charles and Jennifer Chia (six and seven respectively) and the 1990 murder of seven-year-old Monica DaSilva. No word on his status as a possible suspect in the 1988 kidnapping of Michaela Garecht from Hayward, California. She was nine and was abducted in broad daylight by a young man who took her away in his vehicle — very similar to Jaycee’s kidnapping. She also bore a strong resemblance to Jaycee and they were about the same age.
