Disturbing home video released, shot by Jaycee Dugard's kidnappers

Posted: Updated:

(CBS 8) - On the same day Jaycee Dugard's memoir, "A Stolen Life" hit bookstores, catapulting to the top of Amazon's Best Seller list, disturbing videos that helped convict her kidnappers were released by the El Dorado County District Attorney's Office.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido secretly recorded unsuspecting children, zooming in on their legs and skirts, while they plotted to get the best shots. Philip is heard asking, "do you think anybody can see me?" to which Nancy replies, "no. Nobody can see you."

One of the videos shows them at a playground, pretending to tape Garrido singing, but what they're really focused on, are the children behind him. Phillip stops singing and is heard asking Nancy, "got any real good?" and she replies, "yes, yeah. I can see her really good."

The District Attorney's Office also released home video of the inside of the Garrido's Antioch home during a search by one of Garrido's parole officers. He's touring the home, and at one point, Nancy Garrido, who's holding the video camera, gets upset at the parole officer about the search.

Nancy asks him, " what does a parole agent ..Do for his parolee." The unidentified officer replies, "ma'am you can come to the office and discuss that at an appropriate time, right now I'm doing a search and I'm really.. If you stay in this front room and I don't have to place you in restraints because right now I'm searching the house.

What he didn't search, however, was the backyard, where kidnapping victim Jaycee, and her two daughters, fathered by Garrido, were being held captive.

In her memoir, Jaycee details what her life was like in captivity for 18 years, from the age of 11 to 29. Many San Diego area book stores were sold out on Tuesday, the day of the book's release.

Jaycee says she wrote it without a ghostwriter, and she's the one who did the reading for the audiobook. Jaycee is donating a portion of every sale to the JAYC Foundation, which helps support families recovering from abductions.
