Shawn Hornbeck, Kidnap Survivor, on Jaycee Lee Dugard


"You're brainwashed. It's as simple as that. I know people use that term a lot, but that's what happens to you. It's like you are on autopilot, only someone else is controlling all the switches. They control every little, minute detail in your life. Everything."

— 18-year-old Shawn Hornbeck on why Jaycee Lee Dugard didn't escape from her kidnapper Phillip Garrido in the 18 years she was held captive. Hornbeck, kidnapped at age 11, spent four years and three months living in an apartment with his male abductor and gave People magazine an exclusive interview.

it's horrible for any child to go through this. Poor Jaycee, I hope overtime she heals, even though this experience permanently scars a kid who has been abducted and has gone through so many horrendous things. At least she's back with her family. sad.
