(Newser) – The first photos of the junk-strewn California backyard "prison camp" where Jaycee Dugard and her two children were kept hidden for years reveal a chaotic hodge-podge of decrepit furniture, rumpled clothing, cat and sci-fi books, and a crude shrine to accused kidnapper Phillip Garrido, reports the New York Post. Naked Barbie dolls, a box of lice treatment, and makeup lay among the mess.

Jaycee's family members are currently struggling to cope with her "brainwashing," said an acquaintance. The young woman is "having a hard time connecting," said the friend. Jaycee "has strong feelings" for Garrido, said her stepfather. "She feels it's almost like a marriage." The first words Jaycee uttered when she spoke on the phone to her mother 18 years after her kidnapping were: "Hi, Mom, I have babies," reports the Daily Mail.
