As hard as I try, I cannot think of a fitting punishment for the animals that did this.

Robbing those poor girls and thier families of their lives for over 10 years?  Imagine the hell those people went through.

I can't seem to think of anything that is fitting.  Death just doesn't seem to be enough here.
I tend to agree, but since they cannot be tortured, death would be my choice.    I don't think they can be rehibilitated.

I feel a little funny about wanting to know more details.   10 years is a long time.  Was it constant raping?   Pregnancies?


i read that there was a little girl (aged 5) found with the girls, so its a possibility :(

I am SO glad these young women get to go home to their families! I hope that with time and proper help that they can put this behind them and resume normal lives!

I really am beginning to think that death is the only proper conclusion for people that commit these acts. I am sick of rapist getting second, third and fourth chances to inflict pain and suffering on their victims and victims families. There is no rehabilitation for criminals likes these so it's either incarceration for life or a death sentence.

People need to be vocal  and stop giving asylum by silence to people who do these heinous things! Everyone has a relative or neighbor who is known to the community for sexual aggression or indecent sexual behavior towards others, stop covering it up and turn them in! Stop thinking that no one will believe it or that you are at fault if you know of this happening, You would only be at fault for knowing and doing nothing about it!

Three kidnap victims 'gave birth to at least FIVE babies while they were held captive at Cleveland home for a decade'
  • Missing women Amanda Berry, 26, Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michele Knight, 32, were found on Monday after Amanda escaped and called 911
  • Girl, six, also found alive after Amanda gave birth to her inside the home
  • Police sources claim one of the women had as many as three miscarriages because she was so malnourished
  • Police arrest 52-year-old 'captor' who owned house and his two brothers
  • The women - then girls - were kidnapped separately on the same street more than nine years ago and taken just three miles away
  • Authorities visited the home in 2004 but left after no one answered the door
Three women who were held captive in a Cleveland home for a decade before escaping on Monday reportedly had multiple pregnancies while they were inside, it has emerged.
At least five babies were born at the home owned by Ariel Castro, while one of the victims suffered as many as three miscarriages because she was so malnourished, police sources told NewsChannel5.
It is unknown what happened to the children who were born at the home, and it is not clear whether a six-year-old girl who was found alive there on Monday is among the number cited by sources.
The girl was found after her mother, kidnap victim Amanda Berry, 26, climbed through a screen door on Monday afternoon while her alleged captor was out and fled to a neighbor's home to call 911.
When police arrived minutes later, they found Gina DeJesus, 23, and Michele Knight, 32, who had also been missing for a decade, along with the young girl.

At the press conference, authorities confirmed that the little girl was born to Berry while she was in captivity, but it is not known which of the three suspects - if any - is the father.
Today police praised Berry, who went missing a day before her 17th birthday in 2003, for escaping and alerting authorities to the two other women at the home.
'The real hero here is Amanda,' Cleveland Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba said at a press conference on Tuesday morning. 'She came out of that house and that started it all.'


MONSTERS :(



Amanda Berry:  Help me, I'm Amanda Berry.

Operator:  Do you need police, fire or ambulance?

(The operator tries to figure out where she is.)
Berry:  I'm across the street. I'm using their phone
Operator: OK, stay there with those neighbors and talk to the police when they get there.
(The operator repeats her instructions several times.)
Berry:  OK, are they on their way right now? I need them now.
Operator: We're gonna send them as soon as we get a car open.
Berry:  No, I need them now before he gets back.
Operator: All right. We're sending them, OK?
Berry:  OK. I mean, like, right now.
Operator: Who is the guy who went out?
Berry:  His name is Ariel Castro.
Operator: All right. How old is he?

Berry:  Uh, he's Hispanic.

Exactly, I have so many great memories being a kid.  School was great, home was great, I just feel so sorry she will never experience that.

what .... the ....heck?
Revealed: Kidnap suspect's daughter jailed for 25 years for attempted murder of her 11-month-old baby
  • Ariel Castro, 52, a former school bus driver, has been named as the prime suspect in abduction of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight
  • Two of Castro's brothers also arrested in the case
  • Castro's son wrote a piece on Miss DeJesus' disappearance back in 2004
  • His daughter Emily was jailed in 2008 after she tried to slit her baby's throat after she broke up with her boyfriend
  • Had a long history of mental illness
The daughter of the prime suspect in the kidnapping case of three Cleveland women was jailed for 25 years in 2008 for the attempted murder of her 11-month-old baby, it was revealed today.
Emily Castro, 24, tried to slash her daughter Janyla's throat in April 2007 after she broke up with the child's father.
Court documents state that police were called to Emily's home in Fort Wayne, Indiana - where she moved after she became pregnant - when a passerby saw a woman running out to the street with a bleeding baby in her arms.
The woman was Emily's mother, Grimilda Figeroa, who told police that her daughter stabbed her own child.

When officers went to the home, they found Emily Castro covered in mud, water and blood.
She was bleeding from self-inflicted knife wounds to her neck and wrists and told police she tried to kill herself with the same knife she used to attack her baby. She then tried to drown herself in a nearby creek.
At the time, she had a long history of mental illness though was found competent to stand trial as it did not meet the legal definition of insanity.
During the trial, her defense attorneys produced evidence that Castro suffered from serious depression for years before the birth of her daughter, and that it spiraled into paranoia, causing her to think her family was trying to kill her and the baby at the time of the attack.
The Journal Gazettereported at the time of the trial that Emily told the judge she was a good mom and that she did not know how it could have happened.
Her brother, Ariel 'Anthony' Castro read out a statement in court in defense of his sister and her mental illness.
He said: 'What happened to Janyla was serious, unthinkable and irreversible. What happened to my sister is no less serious.
'Emily's mental illness was something the family saw every day, and it was regrettable it failed to meet the legal definition of insanity.'
She was not an 'animal who tried to kill her daughter out of revenge', he said, describing his sister as a proud mother who put together scrapbooks in anticipation of Janyla’s first birthday.
The child made a full recovery, though it is not known whose custody she is currently in.

'He's somebody you look and then you look away because he's just doing normal stuff. You got some big testicles to pull this one off because we see this guy every day.'
Sources close to local station WOIO said the women were reportedly tied up during their captivity and police found chains hanging from one of the ceilings
They also reported there were signs that dirt had recently been moved in the backyard of the house, though police continue to investigate whether or not the dirt will lead to any new evidence in the case.



Jannette Gomez, 50, who often visits family and friends on the street, said Castro would park his motorcycle and red pickup truck behind the house, lock the gate and enter the house through a back door.
Occasionally, he would turn on a dim porch light, but the house was always dark, she told The Plain Dealer. Shades blocked the windows, and at least one window was boarded up.
Gomez said he never had much to say, she said. He would say 'Hi' back, but there was never much conversation.
The county prosecutor joined dozens of police officers and sheriff's deputies at the scene as they began searching the house late on Monday.
Authorities say the women have been taken to a hospital to reunite with relatives and seem to be in good health.
Michelle Knight had been missing since 2002, Amanda Berry since 2003 and Gina DeJesus since 2004.
Remarkably, Castro's son - also named Ariel who now goes by 'Anthony' - penned an articlefor the Cleveland Plain Press about the disappearance of Miss DeJesus back in 2004 when he was a journalism student.
He even interviewed her mother for the piece, not knowing that the teen was tied up in a basement owned by his father.
He started the story with: 'Neighborhood residents have been taken by an overwhelming need for caution. Parents are more strictly enforcing curfews, encouraging their children to walk in groups, or driving them to and from school when they had previously walked alone.
'One thing is for certain, however. Almost everyone feels a connection with the family, and Gina’s disappearance has the whole area talking.'
Mother Nancy Ruiz told him at the time: 'You can tell the difference. People are watching out for each other’s kids.
'It’s a shame that a tragedy had to happen for me to really know my neighbors. Bless their hearts, they’ve been great.'
Anthony Castro told WKYC-TV reporter Sara Shookman yesterday: 'This is beyond comprehension … I’m truly stunned right now.'



Also struck by the allegations, the suspects' uncle, Julio Castro, told CNN: 'I never want to see them again. For me, it's bad on one side and good on the other side.'
Julio Castro said his nephew used to play bass in various bands that performed at a local club once owned by DeJesus' uncle.

'He was a fun guy. I mean, parents trusted him. He talked to the parents. He was just a regular guy on the street. He put on that great mask that everyone thought he was a good guy.'

- Neighbor Juan Perez
He said he believes his nephew knew the family from the club and the neighborhood.
Another neighbor Juan Perez told News Channel 5: 'He was a nice guy, he would come around and say hi. He gave the kids rides up and down the street on his four-wheeler.
'I’ve known him since I was like five or six years old myself, he would asked me if I wanted a ride. He seemed like he was a good guy to the kids that were here, I don't think he had any bad (attention).'
He also revealed that his sister once heard a scream come from the home and called police but nothing ever came of it. Looking back, he said, he should have seen the signs that something was not quite right.
'Now it's like, red-flag, red-flag, red-flag, somebody should've said something and my sister actually a few years ago heard a scream and she called police.
'He was a fun guy. I mean, parents trusted him. He talked to the parents. He was just a regular guy on the street. He put on that great mask that everyone thought he was a good guy.'
Police didn't immediately provide any details of how the women were found but said they appeared to be in good health and had been taken to a hospital to be reunited with relatives and to be evaluated.
They said a six-year-old also was found in the home.
On a recorded 911 call Monday, Amanda declared: 'I'm Amanda Berry. I've been on the news for the last 10 years.'


  (they obviously were told or had seens newspapers,tv,radio)



She said she had been taken by someone and begged for police officers to arrive at the home on Cleveland's west side before he returned.

So much energy is being spent on wanting to continue barbarity, the reasons do not matter, barbarity is barbarity.

Those who favor it are on the other side of the coin these men are.

Wonder if there are better ways to help those who went missing.

All I can think is having every home in an area searched. Privacy concerns will be summoned but maybe it is a good idea to have someone look through every home.

In either case meting out barabric solutions won't help anyone, it won't help the victims, it won't help the missing, it is selfish and cruel.

Dear Lord,

We ask of you,
keep these children safe and sound,
let no harm come before they are found.
They are lost from their family,
from the ones they love,
return them home,
and protect them from above.
Place your loving arms around them today,
guide them safely back home,
to You this we pray.

Amen.


these beautiful children, so sweet and precious,  i just hope we all learn how cherished we all are. x

Prayers are nice. Hopefully the case workers are in place and if there is no funding that they find it to offer the best mental health services possible to the victims.
