Police this weekend continued to question and investigate Phillip Garrido, charged with kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard, rescued after 18 years and held in a rundown California shanty for all of her childhood.

Garrido and wife Nancy are suspected of abducting Dugard as an 11-year-old girl and tormenting her for nearly two decades in their California backyard in a decrepit compound of tents and shantys overgrown by bush.

The group of tents acted as a bizarre prison for Dugard, cops found. Garrido had furnished the compound with a pile of toys, an outhouse and even a trampoline, all hidden from civilization thanks to a soundproof barrier around the building and heavy foliage that hid the shacks from view.

The couple pleaded not guilty this week to 29 counts, including forcible abduction, rape and false imprisonment.

Dugard this week was reunited with her family, who hadn't seen their little girl since she was snatched in 1991 from a bus stop.
