Monday, August 31, 2009

An unsettling case keeps getting stranger. Phillip Gorrido of Antioch, California was arraigned last week for kidnapping then-11-year-old Jaycee Dugard, keeping her hostage in his backyard, and sexually assaulting her for 18 years. Police are now investigating whether Gorrido was involved in the murders of several prostitutes in the area during the 1990s. Here with more is Ravi Peruman, reporter for KGO radio in San Francisco.
