Several of the murdered women's bodies were dumped near an industrial park where Garrido worked during the 1990s.

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- The father of a man suspected of kidnapping a girl 18 years ago and hiding her in his backyard says his son is "absolutely out of his mind."

Manuel Garrido told The Associated Press Friday that his son Phillip Garrido fell into a bad crowd when he was younger and started taking LSD.

The elder Garrido said the drugs changed him from a good boy, whom everybody loved, to a crazy person.

Speaking by phone from his house in Brentwood, Manuel Garrido says he hasn't seen his son in years and has never been to the house where Phillip Garrido allegedly lived with the missing girl, Jaycee Lee Dugard, their two children, and his wife, Nancy Garrido.

Phillip and Nancy Garrido are being held for investigation of kidnapping and conspiracy. Phillip Garrido also has been accused of various sex crimes.
