As if revelations about accused kidnapper and rapist Phillip Garrido were not unsettling enough, a customer of Garrido’s home-based printing business in Antioch, Calif., has now told reporters that the increasingly religious man recorded and handed out self-recorded albums of love songs to young girls.

“The way she walks, yeah, subtle, sexy. What can I do? I fall victim too. A little child, yeah, look what you do,” one song goes.

Garrido told the customer he’d written the songs while serving time in prison in 1976 for a previous kidnapping and rape.
