An FBI agent tells CNN's Randi Kaye that Michelle Knight was beaten with hand weights while held captive for more than a decade in Ariel Castro's house. But she doesn't need facial reconstruction as previously reported.
The agent also clarified reports about a hierarchy among the women when they were in captivity. At the hospital they were walking around together and seemed equally concerned about each other.
The agent also mentioned that the only reason Gina DeJesus and Knight didn't follow Amanda Berry out of the house the day she escaped was because they feared Castro, and not because they didn't trust Berry.
A month after Adrianne Haslet-Davis' foot was amputated, the Boston bombing survivor describes the challenges she faces in an interview with Anderson Cooper. She says the hardest part is doing "simple things" like showering, going to the bathroom and getting ready - her daily routine.
Adrianne fell in her bedroom a few days ago directly on her tender wound and sensitive stitching. The incident made her new normal seem more real.
"I don't know if it was me just kind of realizing physically that my leg wasn't there anymore. But it was really hard for me. I think it sort of made me realize that I was a lot weaker than I thought I was ... a hard thing to think about," says Adrianne.
One month ago, Boston bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost her left foot in the attack. The dance instructor has had a positive outlook, but is also candid about her struggles. She’s vowed to return to the dance floor and has agreed to let AC360° follow her journey. Anderson Cooper shows how far she’s come in just four weeks.
In the days after last month's Boston marathon bombings, the city was on edge. Residents were holed up in their homes, under strict orders not to leave. Investigators sifted through countless hours of surveillance images trying to determine who might have carried out this heinous attack.
Then came a breakthrough.
Three days after the April 15 attack, the FBI identified the bombing suspects captured in surveillance images near the finish line, later identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
And a manhunt was on.
A month after the deadly Boston Marathon bombings, visitors to a memorial continue to leave messages and mementos for the victims. A time lapse video captures the growing tribute.
Editor's note: Anderson Cooper is live from Boston tonight on the one month anniversary of the attack. He'll speak with Adrianne Haslet-Davis and show the first installment of a special series on her recovery.
We first met Adrianne Haslet-Davis a week after the Boston Marathon bombings. She had been standing so close to the second explosion that it actually launched her into the air.
“I remember the air hitting me and the impact of the air hitting my chest and stomach and flying through the air and then landing,” she said. “I sat up and tried to move, and I said … there's something wrong with my foot.”
The impact had blown away a large portion of her left foot. Without the heroic work of her husband Adam, who had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan with the Air Force, and first responders, she likely wouldn’t have survived.
Michelle Knight was 21 when she vanished in 2002. After 11 years, she was found in Ariel Castro's Cleveland house with Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus. The three women were allegedly tortured, raped, and mentally abused by their captor.
While residents remember Berry and DeJesus disappearing, they aren't as familiar with Knight's case. One neighbor told CNN that people thought she may have left town; her family also thought that was a possibility. Because she was an adult, authorities may have assumed that too.
Cleveland police removed Knight's name from the FBI's missing persons database just 15 months after she was last seen. The FBI has said it couldn't find her mother and was unable to confirm Michelle was still missing.
According to the police report, Knight told officers Castro got her pregnant and then abused her as a means of aborting the baby. She said he starved her for at least two weeks then he repeatedly punched her in the stomach until she miscarried.
Paul and J.P. Norden each lost a leg in the Boston Marathon attack four weeks ago. The brothers, who have always been inseparable, said worse than having their limb amputated was being apart when they were taken to two different hospitals after the blast.
They now go to physical therapy together at Spalding Rehabilitation Center every day for three hours. They're learning to balance and do normal activities. They help each other adjust to their new reality, along with support from their family. CNN's Jason Carroll reports.
In an op-ed in the New York Times, world famous actress and activist Angelina Jolie announced her decision to remove her breasts to prevent cancer. Through a blood test, doctors found she carries the BRCA1 gene, which increases her risk of getting ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
She writes, "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could." After three months of private medical procedures, Jolie decided to reveal what she went through to encourage other women facing a similar dilemma. She recognizes it's not an easy decision to make.
Russia accused U.S. diplomat Ryan Fogle of spying for the CIA. Officials said they caught him red-handed, but former CIA officer Bob Baer says it makes no sense at all. CNN's Phil Black reports from Moscow with the latest on Fogle's status.
