    I think we all failed jaycee. If more of garrido’s associates/neighbors knew about his offender status, would the sheriff have rec’d more complaints and could she have been found sooner. Honestly, we have to watch out for each other. I read in this article that you can now track offenders through Facebook….and we could almost guarantee many of his associates are on facebook daily.
