    One of the three women kidnapped and held captive in a Cleveland “House of Horrors” -- where she was raped daily for more than a decade -- revealed in an episode of “Dr. Phil” she is happily married years after her harrowing escape. Michelle Knight, 36, who now goes by the name Lily Rose, announced the news in an episode set to air April 24, TMZ reported Monday. “I got really good news for you…Dr. Phil, I’m married!” Knight said as the audience cheered. Knight said she's been married since May 2015, two years after she was rescued from her...

    CHARDON, Ohio – One of the three women held captive in a Cleveland home for about a decade told a crowd she has been able to forgive her kidnapper and find peace in her life. Knight, who was kidnapped in August 2002 when she was 21, said she realizes now that Ariel Castro had a disease, and therapy has taught her that what he did hadn't been his fault, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported.

    Ohio corrections officials say Ariel Castro who held three women captive in his home for nearly a decade has committed suicide at a state prison facility. Spokeswoman JoEllen Smith says 53-year-old Castro was found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient. Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    As Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper, rapist and baby killer, shuffled off in chains to the hoosegow, I thought why was there so little reportage or commentary about his idiotic statement made in an Ohio courtroom. Is it because the man himself is so repugnant? Is it because his transgressions against society are so repulsive? I think it is both and one thing more. Americans have heard all this claptrap before. We are familiar with the rumblings of a sociopath. A sociopath, in plain language unadorned by the psychiatrists' hocus-pocus, is a person who does not know right from wrong,...

    Guilt or innocence was never really the big question at hand in the bizarre and sickening case of Ariel Castro, the Ohio-area man who kidnapped three women, imprisoned them in his home, repeatedly raped them, and starved and beat one victim into having multiple miscarriages. Shortly after the three women were finally returned to freedom back in May, however, the big question that arose was whether Castro could face the death penalty for deliberately killing the victim’s children in the womb. In Ohio, causing “the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy” against her will constitutes aggravated murder, and the death penalty...

    I took down the post about Charles Ramsey's past. The extension of the man's fifteen minutes is irritating to me, but I suppose I'm more irritated with the people who have tried to turn him into the next Antoine Dodson. One of the reasons that the Dodson bit and Bed Intruder is funny and entertaining is that nothing all that bad happened. There was a break-in, a failed rape attempt and a clumsy escape which left the Dodsons traumatized for a short time. The interview—which was with the actual victims, not a bystander—was the perfect example of what Nipsey Washington...

    Coach is Right ^ | 5/15/13 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The terrible ten year rape/ kidnapping ordeal suffered by three innocent Cleveland women at the hands of Ariel Castro, a registered Democrat (look it up) may yet put the baby killing crowd at NARAL and NOW in a web of their own evil lies. Their captivity included daily rapes and the predictable pregnancies that followed. The startling evidence shows Castro’s depravity extended to stomach punching pregnant victims to cause miscarriages thereby murdering at least five innocent babies. That Castro’s crimes are revolting and demand the death penalty is a widely held sentiment; but what will women’s organizations do or say?...

    FULL TITLE: Ohio kidnap suspect’s family 'pack their bags and flee' as mother apologizes 'for what my son has done' Carrying bags with their heads down, Ariel Castro's family looked frantic as they hurriedly sped off in a car today. Marisol Alicea, believed to be alleged kidnapper Castro's sister, was picked up by their mother, Lillian Rodriguez, from her home in Cleveland, Ohio. It is unclear where the family are headed - their quick exit has fuelled rumors they are fleeing town to escape the media frenzy. Talking animatedly on her mobile phone Marisol Alicea was seen with two bags...

    FULL TITLE: 'I would have reported him - brother or no brother' - Ariel Castro's brothers break their silence after to insist they knew nothing about female prisoners in home The brothers of Cleveland kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro have spoken out for the first time, saying that they would have turned him in if they knew three women were being held prisoner in his home. The brothers, who were arrested along with Ariel Castro, say that since their release from prison, they have been faced with online death threats, a break-in at one of their homes, and vandalism. They were...
  • SNL Mocks Benghazi Hearings; Replaces Whistleblowers with Murderer Jodi Arias

    Saturday's edition of Saturday Night Live mocked the House Oversight Committee's hearings last week on the Benghazi terror attacks, substituting convicted murderer Jodi Arias for the State Department whistleblowers who came forward to testify about the deaths of four American diplomats on Sep. 11, 2012. SNL cast the hearings as a "partisan witch-hunt" in which Republicans tried to sensationalize the deaths for political gain, using the week's notorious criminals--including alleged kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro--to gain media attention. The sketch, which opened the show, acknowledged that the media had not covered the Benghazi scandal--but instead of making fun of the...

    "Helping to free three women from nearly a decade in captivity would seem to be enough. Neighbor Charles Ramsey has also become a star, offering moments of levity in an unspeakably horrible story, free publicity for a restaurant chain and unexpected lessons in race relations. Ramsey lived next door to where Ariel Castro is alleged to have kept the women in a makeshift prison until Monday afternoon. Or let him tell it: "I got the day off from work, so naturally you're doing nothing." Actually, he was "eating my McDonald's," a fact he trumpeted so frequently that the grateful food...

    The Ohio attorney general said on Friday that DNA tests showed Cleveland kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro is the father of the six-year-old born while he allegedly held the girl's mother and two other women captive for nearly a decade. Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a statement that "forensic scientists worked throughout the night to confirm that Castro is the father of the six-year-old girl born in captivity to one of the kidnapping victims."

    As more details emerge from the case of the Cleveland kidnapper who apprehended three teenage girls and forced them to live as sex slaves for a decade in his home, a leading pro-life attorney hopes more charges will be made. Samuel Casey, the general counsel for the Law of Life Project has been closely following the case and he tells LifeNews it appears from reports of the crimes that the first young woman kidnapped by Ariel Castro, Michelle Knight, was raped, impregnated and forcibly aborted by Castro (right) at least five times during her more than ten year captivity.

    Ariel Castro, the Cleveland man police say kidnapped and held captive three women for a decade, could also face aggravated murder charges for allegedly terminating the pregnancies of his captives. Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty said Thursday that based on the facts of the case, his office intends to seek charges not only for the sexual assaults endured by the victims, but also "each act of aggravated murder he committed by terminating pregnancies."
