The campus police officer whose unease triggered the arrest of Philip Garrido for the kidnap of Jaycee Lee Dugard has described how his daughters looked like brainwashed zombies. Officer Ally Jacobs sat in on a meeting with Mr Garrido and his daughters after he requested permission to distribute leaflets on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. But her suspicions were aroused by the strange behaviour of the two girls - and led to the eventual release of their mother, Jaycee Lee Dugard, after nearly two decades of captivity. She said Mr Garrido arrived with the girls, aged 11 and 15, who stared at their father like God during the meeting. They had this weird look in their eyes, like brainwashed zombies, she said. She spoke out as police said that Mr Garridos home has been searched for evidence of a link to the unsolved murders of several prostitutes in the early 1990s, and as Garrido, 58, and his wife, Nancy, 54, denied charges of kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment in connection with Miss Dugards disappearance at their first court appearance. It has also emerged that police missed an opportunity to rescue Jaycee Lee when they visited her captors house in 2006. Officer Jacobs told ABC television that she spoke with both the girls, asking them what grade they were in at school. The girls replied that they were home schooled. Telegraph The girls wore drab-coloured dresses, were unusually subdued, had unnaturally pale complexions and appeared robotic and rehearsed when they spoke. When Officer Jacobs asked the younger girl about a bruise near her eye, the 11-year-old said it was an inoperable birth defect. Officer Jacobs said she asked the girls what they were doing with their father, but Mr Garrido interrupted and said: Im socialising them, showing them how its done. When Officer Jacobs queried the statement, asking How what is done? he replied, By interacting with people. The police officer told ABC television that there was not enough evidence to call in social workers, so instead she called Mr Garridos parole officer - only to be told by him that the convicted rapist did not have any daughters. Mr Garrido was arrested after a meeting with his parole officer, which Jaycee Dugard also attended - to reveal that she was the girl who had been missing, presumed dead, for 18 years since being kidnapped outside her home, aged 11. The events that triggered the unravelling of the mystery began on Monday when Officer Jacobs decided to attend a meeting with Mr Garrido after a member of the college staff mentioned his erratic behaviour. Mr Garrido had been seeking permission to hold a meeting on the campus but Lisa Campbell, who spoke with him. thought his behaviour was erratic. She said he told her he wanted to discuss the Lords work. Ms Campbell expressed her concerns to Officer Jacobs, who ran a criminal check which revealed Garrido was on parole for rape. For that reason the police officer decided to sit in on the meeting with Mr Garrido when he returned the following day. A day later, after the meeting with his parole officer, he was arrested - and Jaycee Lee Dugard and the children her abductor had fathered were finally freed. Telegraph
