As details keep emerging about South Lake Tahoe kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard’s life over the past 18 years in captivity, the story about her the daughters she conceived with her captor, Phillip Garrido, is not a purely horrifying one.  In fact, one of Dugard’s friends, Cheyvonne Molino, says that her daughters, who went by Angel and Starlet, were “polite and well-mannered” and they both loved “Hannah Montana.”  In fact, the girls attended a birthday party for Molino’s daughter two weeks ago.  

Deepal Karunaratne, who had real estate brochures printed at Garrido’s company, “Printing for Less,” worked with Dugard a good amount and said “she was always having a very pretty smile on the face.”  However, sometimes Dugard’s daughters sometimes stood out.  ”They were not dressed like average teenage girls.  They were dressed very conservatively,” Karunaratne said.

Now that Dugard and her daughters have been freed, they are at an undisclosed location with her mother and a team of psychologists and law enforcement officers trying to get adjusted to their new life and world outside of captivity.
