When Amanda Berry escaped Ariel Castro‘s torturous basement on May 6 with her precious daughter Jocelyn, 6, many questioned the paternity of the little girl who had been born in captivity. On May 10, the Ohio attorney general’s office confirmed that Ariel was in fact the biological father of the little girl.
Gina DeJesus‘ mother, Nancy Ruiz, revealed the tearful moment she first saw her kidnapped daughter, Gina, now 23, after 9 long years of not knowing if she was dead or alive.
After vanishing approximately ten years ago, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were amazingly found alive in their kidnapper’s home. A neighbor, Charles Ramsey, overheard Amanda yelling for help, and discovered the three women at Ariel Castro‘s home, where they had been locked in a basement for ten years.
Michelle Knight, 32, told police that she saved the life of Amanda Berry‘s daughter by giving the baby CPR after she was born. The baby had trouble breathing, and the women’s alleged kidnapper, Ariel Castro, told Michelle she had to save the baby, or else he would kill Amanda.
Charles Ramsey, the man credited with rescuing all three women who were held captive in an Ohio basement, was the first person to see Amanda Berry, 27, and her young daughter Jocelyn, 6, after they escaped Ariel Castro‘s basement. Charles revealed to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that both escaped women were extremely frightened — and little Jocelyn cried for her father.
Since the three women escaped captivity on May 6, after ten years, they’ve been reuniting with family. Gina DeJesus arrived at her family’s home on May 8, wearing a yellow hooded sweatshirt. Men wearing T-shirts, with “guardian angel” printed on them, stood behind police tape in front of the home as a huge crowd cheered for Gina upon her arrival.
