Probyn, 56, a wallpaper hanger, was suspected by some in-laws of being involved in the 1991 abduction. He concedes finding Dugard, who is now 29, is also a relief for him personally. "I'm free now," he said. "They caught him and it's solved."
Probyn says he's unaware if any of his relatives will apologize, but says he told his estranged wife Terry Probyn this weekend, "I don't want these people back in my life. They actually raised money to hire detectives to put me in jail."
On the Antioch street where Garrido lived, the neighborhood kids nicknamed him "Creepy Phil." Now that he and his wife face 29 felony counts for what he allegedly did to Dugard over the past 18 years, Garrido, if convicted, will almost certainly die in prison.
During most of Garrido's 58 years, criminal records show a pattern of abusing or manipulating women.
His father, Manuel Garrido, is the first to admit his son was a troubled teenager.
"He was on LSD and he had a serious motorcycle wreck and hit his head," Manuel Garrido told reporters.
Phillip Garrido was first caught 33 years ago. A patrol officer saw a curious light inside an 8 foot by 10 foot storage unit in Reno, Nev. A police detective repeatedly banged on the door.
"He kept banging on the door until Mr. Garrido opened the door ... and a naked woman ran out," explained Dan DeMaranville, of the Reno police department. The officer then "stuck a gun up the guy's nose and that was end of that party," DeMaranville said.
Police say Garrido's Reno storage unit looked like a scene from a porno film. Garrido confessed to rape and was sent to Leavenworth Prison in Kansas.
Even from inside the penitentiary, DeMaranville said, Garrido convinced a woman, Nancy Boconegra to marry him. She has stayed with him to this day.
"He's a pervert," DeMaranville said. "He should have been neutered while he was in prison."
