'MY THREE GIRLS' BY JAYCEE KIDNAP WIFE; Sinister emails to long-lost relatives: EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: Amy Nelmes

THE wife of Jaycee Lee Duggard's kidnapper sent long-lost relatives bizarre emails about the couple's "three daughters".

Nancy Garrido stunned her brother and sister by getting in touch after a lengthy family rift.

In a badly spelt email to her brother she said: "We have three girls raging from ten years thur twenty six."

The unsuspecting brother replied: "Kids? I did not know you had kids."

Nancy, 55, sent the messages just months before she and her husband Phillip, 58, were arrested for abducting Jaycee in a horrifying case that has shocked the world.

What Nancy failed to tell her brother was that the "daughters" were Jaycee - kidnapped when she was 11 - and two girls that the youngster had by sex monster Garrido. Nancy's apparently innocent emails concealed the appalling truth of Jaycee's 18-year ordeal of captivity, rape and abuse.

One email to her brother asked: "How you been doing? Are you still married? As for me I'm very married.

"We have our own business called Printing 4 Less."

Her brother promised: "I will let everyone know you said hi."

He even discussed the possibility of their families meeting. His reply to Nancy was riddled with bad grammar and said: "I have my own family thats all that matters. I em so happy to hear from you. We are getting to old not to keep in touch. I hope one day we get the chance to visit."

In another email exchange he said: "The girls have asked about you. I've told them I miss you and I hope some day they can meet you."

Shacks Jaycee, now 29, was kidnapped as she walked to a bus stop in her home town in South Lake Tahoe in California in 1991.

Police believe Nancy bundled her into a car driven by Garrido, who drove her more than 100 miles to their home in Antioch.

Jaycee became a sex slave in a squalid, rubbish-strewn backyard where shelter was provided by dilapidated tents and shacks.

She gave birth to Garrido's daughters when she was 14 and 17. The girls, now 11 and 15, were brainwashed to believe Nancy was their mother.

Jaycee's step dad Carl Probyn said: "They thought Jaycee was their sister. People have to realise this is going to take years of therapy."

Religious fanatic Garrido's sinister secret was only uncovered when Jaycee walked into a police station two weeks ago.

Her captors were arrested and her daughters taken into care.

Police say Nancy provided the cover that helped her husband, a convicted sex attacker, to keep the authorities in the dark.

The pair had married in prison in 1987 while Garrido was doing time for abducting and raping a 25-year-old woman.

Paramedics were called to the couple's house five times since 1999 to help Garrido's 88-yearold mother who had dementia. But devious Garrido managed to convince officials he was living an ordinary life. A neighbour phoned police nearly three years ago and described Garrido as a psychotic sex addict.

A cop interviewed Garrido on his front porch for half an hour but did not enter the house or search the yard.

Nancy and her husband have appeared in court in manacles in Placerville, California.

They face a total of 29 charges including kidnap, rape, sexual assault and false imprisonment.

But before her arrest, Nancy placed an advert online that demonstrated her unwavering love for her husband. Her errorstrewn note read: "It takes money to produce and promote music. I'm looking for an invest in my husbands music.

"The profits from your investment will double, that's how confident I am about his music. He has so much music to share with the world."
