FULL TITLE: Kidnap victim Michelle Knight is deaf in one ear and will need facial reconstruction surgery after years of brutal beatings at the hands of her captor

Michelle Knight, the longest-held Cleveland kidnap victim, suffered such severe beatings while locked inside the house of horrors that she will require facial reconstruction surgery, her family said.

Knight, 32, was released from hospital on Friday, five days after she and two other victims Amanda Berry, 27, and Gina DeJesus, 23, along with Berry's six-year-old daughter were rescued following a decade held captive in the dungeon-like home.

'When she was severely beaten, he beat her so badly in the face that she has to have facial reconstruction and she's lost hearing in one ear,' Knight's grandmother, Deborah Knight, told CBS.

The death penalty is appropriate for the perpetrator(s) of these crimes...

I’m a very gentle and non violent type but I think I could pull the switch on this piece of crap myself and watch him fry.

This story is sickening beyond description.. how can such monsters exist?

This monster needs to be castrated with pliers and beaten over and over again.

Has anyone heard anything about the baby?
Was she beaten or other?
I wonder if she will ever have anything close to a normal life for this moment on.
It was horrible for the women kidnapped and tortured, but the baby was born into that hell.

There was something about them searching for the aborted fetuses. Don’t know if they found them.

There are so many sad aspects to this story, not the least of which is that one of these women never got the opportunity to administer justice with a broken bottle to the monster’s jugular.

I was correct! Found it.

Investigators looking for aborted babies buried in backyard of Ariel Castro’s house

I’m afraid any trial is going to be graphic beyond anything one can imagine.

Earlier today, WKYC’s Tom Meyer reported that the three women held prisoner for a decade in a Cleveland home had gotten pregnant as a result of being raped by their captors. As many as five unborn babies died after the women were beaten.

Sources tell me investigators are looking for possible aborted babies in the backyard of Ariel Castro’s house.

As I understand it, the only thing that will bring the death penalty is a conviction for the murder of her unborn children. It will be interesting to see where the pro-abortion feminists side.

Nail his balls to the top of a telephone pole. Pour hot lead in his A$$ till his nose touches the ground. Then hurt him.

I just hope that now maybe even though she is in her 30s she can be adopted by Gina’s family, they seem like a real loving family..and maybe for once in Michelle’s life she can have a family that really loves her..I want the best for this woman she suffered before she was taken and she must feel in some strange way that suffering is all she is good for..I hope that she can be embraced by Gina’s family and have a happy life

A hammer might be better. I once knew a fellow in Mammoth, AZ who killed his wife with a pair of pliars. It took him several hours, but maybe that was the point. I never thought he was capable of such a crime but never liked him through the three years I worked with him. He was very suspicious about his wife and said once that he thought all women wanted many “lovers”.

Close knit PR community, as every reporter keeps repeating. Everyone knows everyone else and their business. We have heard this over and over even from the neighbors yet no one ever suspected a thing.

I find that very odd, to say the least.

My thoughts exactly. And now the other two women are having these big homecomings while Michelle has no home to go to.

Yes, a tedious castration by pliers is what I meant. Slow and deliberate. Sew him up and give him a blood transfusion and then do it all again.

I agree. and I find it very odd that the two other brothers had no clue about what was going on. I bet they are eventually implicated.

There is a cemetery directly behind the houses across the street from the hell house. It wouldn’t be hard to do away with any other missing victims or the babies there and no one would be the wiser.

I'm a 62 year old Texan and can remember growing up where rape was called rape and not sexual assault and it drew the death penalty. Kidnapping was the same death penalty. Remember the Lindberg baby? Kidnapper was whacked in NJ. Now you can kill someone and we argue for months whether you get 10 year 30 years or life. Kidnapping should be death and IMO, rape should be death.

I know there will be all these flames about some 19 year old having a 16 year old girlfriend pregnant, but I think we know the difference between that and rape. We can also discern when a father doesn't get the kids back to the ex wife in time for supper from real kidnapping.

The best thing you could do,for her is financially contribute to her reconstruction.

She came from an abusive home and her mom eventually kicked her out at 14.

On another thread it was mentioned that the little girl called Ariel Castro’s mother, ‘grandma’.

Like Hell they didn’t know!

That’s right. They knew and are scum, too. Those poor women will tell all.

True, very sad. But there was no particular reason for believing an adult woman who split had been kidnapped or was being held prisoner.

Frying's too quick. Baseball bat, blowtorch and razor knife, and a few hours...
