Michelle Knight had known unimaginable hardship long before she was abducted in at the age of 21, then held captive and repeatedly raped and tortured for nearly 11 years by Ariel Castroa school bus driver and local musician. She continued fighting by facing her perpetrator in court. And, with time, she found love and created a new family to surround her. It takes four hours for a hot dog to cook. Knight said she was almost like a mother to her siblings. I took a blanket from somebody's back porch. Cuddled up with it. The vibrations just, you know, helped me be calm. She said she often sought refuge in a local Baptist church where she was given food, clothes and a place to bathe.
A congregant saw her at the church one day and reported it to her father.
He sent her back to school where she says she was bullied. She started seeing a boy from school, got pregnant and gave birth to her son Joey at I wanted to be better than Social services eventually put him in foster care. Knight was desperate to get her son back. On Aug. I tried to call them on a payphone. It didn't work. I can take you straight to it. It'll only take me But instead of going to family court, he took her to his home, on the pretense of first picking his daughter and showing Michelle some puppies.
This can't happen.
At first, Knight was kept bound with an extension cord wrapped around her legs, arms and neck. He shoved a sock in her mouth to muffle her screams. In Aprilhe kidnapped year-old Amanda Berry as she was walking home from her job at Burger King. A year later, he abducted year-old Gina DeJesus as she returned home from middle school.
The disappearance of Berry and DeJesus alarmed the community, and their families were on the news constantly pleading for their return. Knight told authorities she got pregnant five times and each time, Castro used vicious and violent methods to end the pregnancy. With the help of others in the neighborhood, Berry alerted authorities. I didn't care how dirty it was I kissed that ground. I kissed that ground and thanked God that He helped us get out of there.
The women were taken to the hospital, where Knight was found to be in the worst condition of the three. Still, she refused to be defeated. Knight remembered singing and dancing while receiving treatment. Castro pleaded guilty to criminal counts of rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder and he was sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus a thousand years.
Now your hell is just beginning. I will overcome all this that happened, but you will face hell for eternity. From this moment on, I will not let you define me or affect who I am. I define who I am by everything I do in life. But Castro only spent one month and one day in prison before killing himself. Knight watched as it was being torn down, handing out balloons to those in the neighborhood. He's such a sweetheart.
