The saga for Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight is far from over, but at least they are home and in the company of those that love and care for them.
Three three ladies were kept hostage at 2207 Seymour Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio for a decade. They were trapped with a monster named Ariel Castro, who raped and abused them repeatedly. The three ladies were kept chained up and tested to see if they would betray their captor.
Amanda’s father Johnny Berry talked to the Enquirer about her ordeal. He told the magazine, “If I could get my hands on that monster Castro, I’d kill him myself! I’d rip him to shreds!”
Now ailing from recent back surgery and deadly pulmonary disease, Johnny – who lives in Tennessee — yearns to see Amanda again and hug his 6-year-old granddaughter Jocelyn, who was born in captivity.
But he has spoken with brave Amanda on the phone and shares with ENQUIRER readers how the gutsy 26-year-old is still tormented by the ordeal while staying with her sister in Cleveland.
We can’t imagine any of the pain that they are going through, but we wish them well on their journeys to recovery.
