It has been a year since the Cleveland kidnapping victims escaped their captor. Michelle Knight was held the longest and spent more than a decade enduring unimaginable torture. She just spoke to Anderson about her ordeal.
Michelle explains why she got into her captor’s car in the first place. She tells Anderson how she was duped by a promise of a new puppy to give to her young son after his dog had just died. Michelle also talks to Anderson about what it is like to adapt to life as a captive, and realize “that you’re powerless."
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
