Starved, rapped, abused and miscarriages are whatAmanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus endured.
As we reported, all women were abducted and held as sex slaves for nearly 10 years at Ariel Castro, O’Neal Castro and Pedro Castro’s home.
While Charles Ramsey, the neighbor who discovered the women, maybe shocked by his discovery, other neighbors say they called authorities when they sighted the women crawling around in Castro’s backyard. However, the concerns were dismissed because authorities believed it was a prank.
Two more phone calls were made. The second call was made when the women were again spotted crawling around naked with a dog leash. The last call was made by a neighbor whose sister heard a strong pound on their window and was shocked to see a woman with a baby, as stated by the New York Post.
Apparently, when authorities came to “investigate” the scene they found nothing.
One mother blames lack of media attention for her daughter’s captivity. Barbara Knight, mother of Michelle Knight, says, “Most of the media and the community awareness was…generated toward the [other] two young girls.”
Barbara currently lives in Florida and has yet to see her daughter. She receives limited updates about her daughter’s well-being from Cleveland police. Barbara relies strongly on the media for information.
