Parents have a powerful reason to talk to kids about how courage can be all about running away, after Ohio Gov. John Kasich presented medals to kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina de Jesus, and Michelle Knight during his annual State of the State address.
The home where three Cleveland women were held captive for a decade by Ariel Castro was demolished Wednesday. Michelle Knight, who is becoming the public face of the victims, was there.
The three women held captive by Ariel Castro will have a lead role, along with members of the Cleveland community, in determining what will replace the Castro house, says the president of the bank that now owns the property. Demolition begins Wednesday.
Amanda Berry, who was one of three women held captive for a decade in a Cleveland house, on Saturday made her first public appearance since being freed. Amanda Berry joined rapper Nelly onstage at a music festival.
Facing 997 counts, including rape and aggravated murder, Ariel Castro opts for a plea deal for life plus 1,000 years in prison without parole, sparing himself the death penalty and the women he kidnapped from testifying.
