Did Psychiatry “Treat” Phillip Garrido, Alleged Kidnapper/Rapist?

Phillip Garrido, who is still making headline news over the alleged kidnapping and rape of an 11 year old girl who remained confined in his backyard for 18 years, may have been on prescription medications and under the care of a psychiatrist the entire time.

Mainstream media has bent over backwards to ignore this stunning revelation that appears in documents released by the FBI.  The documents are a part of what the media is referring to as the “manifesto“, and is titled “Origin of Schizophrenia Revealed”.

In what Garrido has called his “book”, he reveals his ability to explain and reproduce sounds telepathically, gives an overview of his Christian beliefs, and claims his kidnapping and sexual abuse of a child eventually led him to heightened spirituality and a more intimate relationship with his wife, upon repenting of his sins. Mainstream media quickly milked the documents for all they were worth, with a single exception.

Garrido Spiritual Manifesto

Aside from a brief, incomplete and rather spun mention by CBS, no news organization has revealed what is perhaps one of the strangest elements of the case.  Phillip Garrido appears to have been under psychiatric care during the entire 18 years of Jaycee Dugard’s horrific ordeal. The document released to media upon request by the FBI, states “Concerning Phillip Garrido’s state of mind: Mr. Garrido has been under the care of a psychiatrist for the past 18 years for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). If a reference is needed I will supply a release form upon request and you may contact him yourself.” The name of the psychiatrist has either been redacted by the FBI or was not in the document to begin with, though credentials are listed therein.

While many bloggers and journalists are hung up on the apparent religious angle of the story, speaking of Garrido’s founding of “God’s Desire Church”, the unsettling possibility that Garrido is the latest Frankenstein to come from a psychiatrist’s “treatment” of “mental illness”, is being ignored or downplayed. It will be interesting to see what else we learn, since it appears that Garrido is more than eager to share his thoughts, and his history.  As you can see from the above video, Garrido is certainly no stranger to psychiatry, or drug use, and it leaves one speculating on just what role those may have played in his actions, if any.

If nothing else, it certainly does give one pause to find out that Garrido’s kidnapping of young Jaycee may have coincided with a prescription for stimulants.
