Latest Amanda Berry Items
It's been a whirlwind two days for Cleveland's Charles Ramsey, who helped free three women from a decade of captivity on Monday night.
As Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus made triumphant returns home Wednesday, authorities in Cleveland charged their captor with multiple counts of kidnapping and rape for putting the women — along with a third, Michelle Knight — through a decadelong hell of sexual abuse and complete disconnect from the outside world.
When Amanda Berry escaped from a decade of captivity on Monday night, her first act was to call 911 and beg for help from authorities. But the actions of the 911 call-taker, who hung up on Ms. Berry before police arrived, are now under investigation.
In a surprising development, a Cleveland prosecutor now says there will be no charges filed against brothers Onil and Pedro Castro in connection with the decade-long captivity of three young women.
Cleveland police in 2004 knocked on the door of the house where three women were being held captive, but nobody answered, said a city spokesman at Tuesday's press conference on the abduction and rescue of teens taken nearly 10 years ago.
Details began emerging Tuesday about the horrors endured by three Cleveland women who were kidnapped and held for a decade in a run-down house with plastic bags over the windows, but researchers on abductions and sexual assault say there will be a lot of help for them and their families.
Georgina "Gina" DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Amanda Berry have survived their abduction and confinement in a Cleveland home for years. The ordeal is over, but the details of the horrors that went on within the home is just beginning. Just hours after their release, there are reports that as many as five pregnancies may have taken place during the women's confinement.
If Charles Ramsey hadn’t responded to the screams he heard from his neighbor’s home, the story of the three Cleveland women who were imprisoned there may not have ended so happily.
The voice of the long-missing woman was frantic and breathless, choking back tears. "Help me. I'm Amanda Berry," she told a 911 dispatcher. "I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm, I'm here, I'm free now."
