Several disturbing home videos of young children frolicking in public, made by Jaycee Dugard’s abductors two decades ago, have been released by the El Dorado County district attorney’s office as part of an attempt to prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future.
Two clips feature young children playing in public in the late ’80s or early ’90s, California’s Mountain Democrat reports.
One shows Phillip Garrido playing a guitar and singing in park, although the camera is focused on the kids playing in the background.
