On May 6, Amanda Berry escaped from Ariel Castro‘s home in Cleveland, Ohio where she has been held captive and was sexually abused for over a decade. The 911 operator that she talked to after she escaped is currently being investigated for swearing at Amanda when she called for help.
Ariel Castro must be delusional. The man accused of having kidnapped Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, wants to be a good dad to Amanda’s daughter Jocelyn. Keep in mind, he made Amanda give birth in a plastic pool and threatened to kill Michelle if something happened to either Jocelyn or Amanda during the birth.
On April 21, 2003, Amanda Berry disappeared in Cleveland, Ohio soon after she made a call to her sister to let her know someone was giving her a ride home from work. Ten years later, Amanda, along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, was miraculously found alive in the home of Ariel Castro, where she had been held captive for the past decade.
Amanda Berry, 27, visited her mother’s grave on Monday, May 13, in Ohio, her uncle revealed. Amanda’s mom, Louwana Miller, died in 2006 at the age of 43 after being hospitalized for pancreatitis. Others say she died of a broken heart after Amanda was abducted in 2003.
Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus were kept indoors for nearly ten years while being held captive inside Ariel Castro‘s house of horrors. However, little Jocelyn Berry was occasionally taken out in public. Did Ariel favor the 6-year-old over the other victims? Our expert Steven Orenstein says in no way did this alleged monster treat his daughter well.
Two Cleveland residents, Jasmina Baldrich and Ashley Colon, thought they were being pulled over by police on May 6. In fact, they just happened to be in front of Ariel Castro’s house at the exact moment that Cleveland police raided it, and the two girls caught the whole thing on tape.
Rick Sanchez says he was inside Ariel Castro’s home, before Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight escaped, but he never picked up a hint of the home’s hidden dungeon and the captured women inside. However, now that the crime has been revealed, he does remember a few outlandish details about the home.
