Watch this 20/20 Special, April 28th show narrated by Robin Roberts, an exclusive interview about a man who held three teenage girls captive for about ten years. He kidnapped them and chained them at times to pipes. They were given buckets to use the bathroom. He limited bathroom and hygiene (water) access just the way some psychopath abductor style-personalities also limit the level of bathtub water to only 2-inches for about ten years on a remote farm. He raped the girls and pretended they were his sister-wives. And unlike other cases, the F.B.I. and police decide to stay avid on the case despite tips that did not come in. But as other cases, the girls had that ongoing heavy overwhelming feeling of never knowing if you were going to be murdered or not.
Fortunately for one of the girls, she thought to keep her diary in code. A man who once crushingly beat the head of his original wife and kicked her and caused her to lose her teeth had a total of three teen girl victim girls. Once he called one of the mothers on the cell phone of the girl and told the mother that her daughter wanted to be with him…tune in on ABC (post-taped) now to watch this 20-20 Special, Captive ~ A Journey Of Hope & Survival which took place in Cleveland, Ohio of all places & pray for other young girls who have been victims of such evil men, a man who the girls said that they would look into his eyes and be unable to see a soul. Perhaps the book In The Arms Of Satan (Ariel O’Suilleabhain) written by another female victim during a state of devastating emotional shatter, also has information similar to the story of the girls here ~ Watch & be mystified…prayerfully going away with a better cause & a better compassion in your heart ~After her mother died and after everything he did which was always uncaring to say the least, captive teen Amanda Berry finds out that she is pregnant with the daughter of her captor. Spending time weathering a forced natural child birth in a wading pool, she gives birth at home. “He buys no supplies for the baby.” Interestingly enough, the over forty hispanic-style kidnapper named Castro places handcuffs on baby Jocelyn right away, who denied an outside world just like the teenage girls, he finally allows her to see the sunshine at the age of three.
Doors nailed across all windows and guard doors and alarms helped the serial-minded man keep the young women locked up inside of a very undeserved prison-like atmosphere, of course, he had already illegally kidnapped them from their families – Everyone according to the same announcer who also acted as tele-journalist for the Katrina hurricane, Amanda pointed out that she remembered watching News Journalist Robin Roberts while still in captivity. The three girls were strangely allowed a black & white television by the serial kidnapper. A seeming out of context behavior by a man who limited dish-wash soap to only a drop for huge bundles of hand-washed dishes and a teaspoon of detergent per load of laundry, carefully controlling every second of the lives of the girls. Amanda said although she found the door to her shadow bedroom unlocked only once after 10-years, all three girls which also included a young woman named Michelle Knight were frozen with fear to leave. Described as the (first) forgotten victim, Michelle was the only one for whom no candle-light vigils held, and no search posters made for. But Amanda Berry whose own mother died of a broken-heart during her captivity, took a chance and although one neighbor closed a door to her cries for help, another man decided to take the risk. “It was like a dream. I need somebody to wake me up. You brought my baby back home,” said the father of one of the young ladies, Gina. “Survival has sweetened the taste of freedom,” according to Roberts. Forgiveness an option, one of the girls forgave, while Amanda did not. The house where the tragedy took place, the girls are thankful that a construction team took demolition equipment to the home. The full destruction of the home where the crimes happened gave the girls some ease from bad memories, although not extensive, from the months of nightmares which ensued.
The announcer said that to the thousands of missing children out there, encouraging you to continue your faith for escape, we send a light in the darkness. “Never give up, because you will make it,” Gina says to you. A new book, the highlight of the show called Hope written by Amanda Berry, & fellow victim at the prior and tormenting serial-man made prison house, DeJesus discussed how some captive persons treasure everything from fast food bags to napkins for writing paper or for creating things to keep your mind off of the ongoing torment of measured out emotional pain doled out by a mentally unstable mysogynist such as denied access to the outside world, family members, or even verbal conversation with another living human being. Castro took his own life one month after gettting a thousand year prison sentence.
