Demian Bulwa, Jaxon Van Derbeken, Henry K. Lee and Kevin Fagan report that Garrido 'was already known as an oddball who said he could channel the voice of God through a makeshift box, but on Thursday the eccentricity took on an aura of horror.'
Authorities further allege the girls also were housed in sheds and other outbuildings in the yard, which had been walled off so it couldn't easily be seen by neighbors or other outsiders. When police found Dugard this week, she told them her name was Allissa.
Garrido's wife knew all about what was happening, officials said. On Wednesday, Phillip Garrido, 58, and his 55-year-old wife, Nancy, were arrested.
