Skip to comments.Amanda Berry: Three captive women chained up in grim dungeon for a decade gave birth to five babies
Posted on 05/08/2013 4:28:45 PM PDT by bimboeruption
Gina DeJesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 30, and Amanda Berry, 26 , and her six-year-old daughter fled the house in Cleveland, Ohio.
Ariel Castro, 52, and his two brothers have been arrested.
Frantic Amanda choked back tears as she told police Im free after she escaped the dungeon.
Amanda fled the hell-hole thanks to a hero neighbour before her dramatic 911 call ended the victims ordeal .
It had been feared that Amanda and the other captives Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight had been murdered.
After escaping the house on Monday just three miles from where they each went missing between 2002 and 2004, they named their captor as 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who tonight was in custody with his two brothers.
The women, aged between 14 and 22 when they disappeared, spent today in hospital before being given the all-clear by doctors and returning to their overwhelmed families.
Amanda, now 26, was joined by her six-year-old daughter who she gave birth to during the years in the dungeon as she hugged her weeping relatives.
Chilling details began to emerge tonight of how the victims were held captive in a basement dungeon.
Police sources said suspect Ariel Castro kept Michelle, Amanda and Gina tied up with chains and tape at the home in Cleveland, Ohio.
The insider said they were kept in different rooms and were possibly untied at different times.
Officers also revealed the three women had multiple pregnancies.
There was evidence of as many as five children being born while the women were held hostage.
One of the victims suffered as many as three miscarriages because she was so malnourished.
Reports also told how the women were beaten so badly they lost other babies.
Police were today seen examining dug up areas in the back garden.

I wonder if the father, along with his two brothers (the girl's uncles), raped the little girl?
I hope the police find the bodies or some trace of the little babies who were murdered.
Kids just don't stand a chance today.
Didn’t they just let the 2 brothers go? The police seemed confident it was only Ariel Castro responsible for all of it.
Remember, early reports are often completely wrong.
All these Castro bros need to be executed.....this is disgusting and horrifying what they did. And even more digusting if the Criminal Rights nutjobs fight their execution
Anyone notice that when the house was first discovered it was flying a Puerto Rican flag ?
But now, with crime scene tape surrounding the property, the flag is an American flag?
What’s up with that????
I have some rope laying around if someone needs it. Just sayin’.
Puerto Ricans are not immigrants they are citizens of a United States Territory.
The two brothers have not been charged based on witness testimony that they did not participate in the kidnapping.
They are from Puerto Rico. As a result, they are automatically US citizens.
I don’t know. Sounds like they are immigrants in the broadest sense. When I (finally) move to WY, I’ll be an immigrant.
Wait till they fly the Confederate flag.....we’ll know there is serious charges being considered by the police and the prosecutor’s offices.
somehow the slaves rescued from the Saudi diplomats house in the US is not very newworthy?
Further information... I find it incredible that police had reports of a naked woman on a leash crawling around the back yard and they just spoke with the homeowner!
I’m wondering if mental problems ran in the family as Castro’s daughter is in jail for killing her baby and attempting to kill herself.
Thank goodness Amanda Berry was able to get loose or they’d probably never have been found.
What employment will look like in the near future, after special constituents’ politicians are through with our Second and Fourth amendments.
Stuff that makes you go, hmmmmm...
First it's just the PR flag.
Then just the U.S. flag.
Evidently there was not a single shred of evidence that the brothers were involved. They were with their brother when they were found. The two brothers had minor outstanding bench warrants for misdemeanors.
The girls did not know about the brothers.
I doubt one guy is responsible for it all. I find it hard to believe that others, relatives, didn’t know about it.
Rope? Gasoline is only $3.45 a gallon.
Guess the flag switch is to prevent stereotyping.
witnesses? After all these years they had witnesses to the kidnapping?
Puerto Rico is part of the US, they are US citizens there I believe.
Very interesting — sounds like it might be another manifestation of politics and political correctness infecting every aspect of life. After all, who wants Puerto Rico associated with a pervert kidnapper, so somebody able to cross a police line at a very active crime scene changed the flag. I wonder who placed the call which lead to the flag swapping.
Not hearing much mention of the murdered infants and induced miscarriages in the American press. The pro-abortion propagandists can’t break their satanic silence, because people might connect the dots to the reality of abortion.
Probably the PR police officer in the case,protecting one of his own?
Reports quoting the girls indicate that they left the house only twice in ten years. Both times they were taken to the garage.
Also, the police claim to have no record of this report.
Yes, I’ve also been puzzled by why the rescue of the Saudi slaves hasn’t gotten a little more attention.
i agree. three shots to the heads. save the taxpayer keeping scum alive.
Your’e kidding! The brothers didn’t know about this? This was all Ariel?
The brothers, btw, are gutter-level alcoholics, and when I first read about them, I wondered how they could have carried this off. Interesting.
This has nothing to do with Puerto Rico. Look up the Dugard kidnapping, the English and German long-term kidnappings, and the Elizabeth Smart kidnapping. Sexual psychopaths are sexual psychopaths.
And now I’m reading that this guy’s brothers, two burned-out alkies, had nothing to do with this and it was all psycho Ariel.
Admit it, there is an ethnic component to the Puerto Rican flag that does not exist in, say the New Jersey state flag or the Florida state flag.
And why the odd behavior of the switch? The brothers were cooling their heels in jail during the switch. Who made the switch? And why?
You don't think it odd?
Local news reports state that of the two brothers not charged, one is on Social Security, and the other is on disability.
The brother charged for the crimes was a school bus driver until he was fired last winter for workplace violations.
Hope they are right. One never does it alone. Especially not for all these years.
Actually, if you zoom in, you can see two flags in each of those pictures.
Things keep changing...
Now CNN is reporting that another younger guy - “Angel Cordera” (Latino who does not speak English) actually did all the stuff - (kicked in the door and got the girl out)and that “Charlie the Crazy Dishwasher” is a liar and took credit for stuff he didn’t do - and that he only got involved once the action” was pretty much over.
Angel’s relative says Charlie was just being opportunistic and the press jumped on him cause he can (sorta) speak English.
Holy Cow...who knows? - what a neighborhood (shaking my head)
I did see the Puerto Rican flag. It’s now gone? What’s up with that?
Kill all 3 Castros.
They are not immigrants. They are American Citizens their parents are from Puerto Rico and are American Citizens by birth. Puerto Ricons are American Citizens, just like people who live in Guam.
Also, only the owner of the home is now in custody. Their isn't any proof that the two other brothers had anything to do with the kidnappings. They have been released due to lack of evidence.
?? They are from Puerto Rico.
I didn’t realize that thanks.
I should have read the responses first before I replied.
None of those reports have been substantiated. Their is no record of the police ever being called to the residence at all. There are NO credible reports that they have ever been to the house beyond ONE time when they where following up with the owner Mr. Castro about a problem with his job driving a bus for the City Schools.
I have spoken to one of the district commanders at the CPD and he confirms that they have never had a call about the residence.
So many reports are incorrect about this case.
I’ve read that 5 babies were born, but only one little girl escaped. Anyone hear about the others?
Police don’t keep good records. I reported prowlers to police, went to station the next day to follow up, and they had “no record” of my call. Nor did they send anyone to investigate.
I find it hard to get my mind around this. How hard is it for three women to escape? How could brothers (who lived there?) not know what was going on?
No doubt plenty of these cases go unreported. Scary.
