It's a first look inside the filthy lair where kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard may have spent 18 years, imprisoned in squalid conditions by her suspected abductors Phillip and Nancy Garrido.
Contra Costa County building inspectors released several images of the interior of the Garridos' Antioch, Calif., home Friday, revealing rooms piled high with overturned furniture, clothing, garbage and dirty dishes.
The kitchen counters are barely visible beneath the stacks of unwashed pots and plates. The floor in what appears to be a living room is completely obscured by stacks of papers, books, boxes and shoes.
The backyard– strewn with large empty canisters, ladders and other tools – could easily pass for a scrap yard. Local police said they have so far removed three truckloads of trash and anticipate there is enough refuse on the property to fill eight to 15 more.
The Garridos are charged in the 1991 kidnapping of Dugard, then 11, and face a combined 29 felony counts. Authorities believe they held the girl for 18 years in their home, and that Phillip - a registered sex offender - fathered her two children.
The images were released a day after cadaver dogs sweeping the Garrido property picked up a scent that may indicate human remains are buried on the land, officials said.
The dogs were working separately and each was alerted to the scent in the same area, Alameda County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson said Thursday.
Authorities will use high-tech radar equipment to probe the area Friday, and will likely dig in that location, a police officer told CNN.
Their home has become a point of interest for investigators working to solve other outstanding kidnappings in the area
