(Newser) – Authorities released more video today made by Phillip and Nancy Garrido that showed how they prowled for victims. In the latest, Nancy is shown luring a girl into their van and videotaping her doing the splits, reports AP. "That's it. Can you go all the way down?" says a sweet-sounding Nancy, and the girl complies. The video was made in 1993, two years after the couple kidnapped Jaycee Dugard, whom they kept for 18 years before getting arrested.

The girl in the video wasn't abducted, just filmed. Nancy also is shown telling an interrogating officer that she made 10 to 20 such videos for her husband. The release of the video comes with a report detailing the failings in the criminal justice system that allowed Phillip Garrido to remain free. "Law enforcement failed to see Phillip Garrido for what and who he truly is ... evil," said the report. Last month, the DA released video of the couple filming girls in a park.
