Three Ohio women who went missing years ago, in separate cases, were found alive in the same Cleveland home on Monday. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were set free by Charles Ramsey, a neighbor who heard Berry screaming for help. He broke the door to let her and a young child out.
Ramsey later told a reporter he was stunned to learn what was happening in the house. He knows Ariel Castro, the 52-year-old man who was arrested, and never suspected anything suspicious. Two others, identified as Castro's brothers, are also suspects, according to Deputy Police Chief Ed Tomba.
Knight was 21 when she vanished in 2002; Berry went missing in 2003 when she was 16; DeJesus was last seen in 2004 at age 14. Dr. Gerald Maloney, a physician at Cleveland's Metro Health Medical Center, said the three women were in fair condition. He didn't comment on the fourth person being treated.
