Cleveland Kidnapping – Monday, May 11, 2015
Ariel Castro kidnapped these two ladies including one other, Michelle Knight,l between 2002 and 2004. He kept the girls in large, heavy chains for years. Amanda gave birth to Castro’s daughter while she was trapped in the house. In 2013, the girls escaped and Castro pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hung himself in his cell months later.
Amanda and Gina are doing well. They both want to finish their high school education, Gina got a job at a restaurant, and they learned how to drive.
