PHILLIP GARRIDO EYED IN 1988 COLD CASE KIDNAPPING
Capt. Darryl McAllister of the Hayward Police said: "This is one of those cases that nags at you throughout your whole career." Detectives questioned the couple last week about the Garecht case. There were many striking similarities between Jaycee and Michaela's case, cops said.
McAllister said: "They could almost be sisters. Both of the interviews lasted over two hours. Neither of the interviews revealed any direct link to the Michaela Garecht case."
However, at the time witnesses say a man snatched Michaela in front of a grocery store, taking her away in a car resembling the one Phillip Garrido had at the time. Sketches of the suspect look like Garrido. At the time, he was living in a halfway house 20 miles away.
With any luck, Phillip Garrido may still end up with a needle in his arm and a one-way ticket to hell.
