Cleveland Kidnapping

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Wednesday, May 8, 2013

Sometimes i wonder what is wrong with some men, how the f*** can some people be so wicked as to kidnap innocent females, molest them and lock them up for 10 years what is going on in this world. Those men should be punished and suffer feeling nothing but countless pain...... had to get that off my chest.
Two days after three women missing at least a decade were freed from a home in downtown Cleveland, details about the victims and the suspects are starting to emerge.Police say Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were all held captive in a home owned by local musician and bus driver Ariel Castro and his brothers. Neighbors said they had no idea anyone else was inside Castro’s home on Seymour Avenue. They only knew him as a “nice guy” who liked to attend barbecues, listen to Spanish music and ride a four-wheeler. But police say his home was a prison, where the three women were tied down in order to keep from escaping.

Amanda Berry: As a 17-year-old, Berry worked a part-time job at a Burger King. But she left work on April 21, 2003 and never came back. Her mother, the late Louwana Miller, told the Plain Dealer newspaper the next month that she kept Amanda’s bed as it was, and left clean laundry for her stacked on the dresser. The following year, Berry’s case was featured on “America’s Most Wanted.” Berry gave birth six years ago in captivity. It was not clear who the father was. On Monday night, a neighbor, Charles Ramsey, spotted Berry kicking the door and screaming: “I’ve been in this house a long time, and I want to leave right now!” Berry called 911, pleading with the dispatcher to send a police car immediately: “I’m Amanda Berry. I’ve been on the news for the last 10 years.”
Gina DeJesus: DeJesus was 14, in seventh grade, when she left school April 2, 2004 to walk home one day and vanished. Her first name is short for Georgina. A website set up to spread word of her disappearance said she had pierced ears — one in the left ear, two in the right. In April, DeJesus’ family held a rally to mark the ninth anniversary of her disappearance. Her mother, Nancy Ruiz, said at the time that she was certain her daughter was alive. On Tuesday, a giant “WELCOME HOME GINA” banner hung from the family’s house, and a growing cluster of brightly colored helium balloons decorated the front of the home. Someone strung her missing-poster photo between the front stoop and the mailbox. DeJesus is now 23.
Michelle Knight: Knight was 21 when she disappeared  the oldest of the kidnapping victims and by far the least known. She was last seen at a cousin’s house on Aug. 22, 2002, not far from where Berry and DeJesus were last seen. Her grandmother, Barbara Knight, told the newspaper that she never believed her granddaughter would disappear without so much as a phone call. But she said family members concluded, based on conversations with police and social workers, that Knight probably ran away because she was angry that her son had been removed from her custody. Knight is 32 today.
