Amanda Berry,Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued after Amanda kicked out part of a screen door. A neighbor pulled her out after kicking down the rest of the door. This was just 3/4 of a mile from the area each vanished from. She took her 6 year old daughter with her. She had been according to Berry fathered by her captor. What a brave woman.
Three men,brothers,Ariel Castro,Onil Castro and Pedro Castro ages 50-54 were arrested in this crime.
These girls were 14 one day shy of 17 and 20 when they were taken in 2002,2003 and 2004. Ariel Castro who's home they were chained up in was a Cleveland school bus driver EEK!! Someone presumably Castro made a call to Amanda's mother from her cell phone right after she was taken and said he married her. The caller would not let her speak. a few years ago police were called twice,once because a naked woman was crawling in the backyard. Nothing was done. The 2nd call stated someone was banging on the plastic covered windows trying to get out. Police knocked and naturaly no one came to the door. One of the girls has told police she was pregnant twice but lost the babies because of beatings from her captors. Put these monsters away forever. Please note there no picture of Michelle Knight available as police did not take a report because she was 20.
