Ariel Castro to Plead Not Guilty, Lawyers Say He Is Not a Monster

Castro allegedly treated Berry, who was forced to give birth to his daughter during captivity, better than the two other women. Two sources claim that DeJesus and Knight were chained, starved, and duct taped in “stress positions” for a long period of time, which left them with bedsores and other injuries.

“One of the girls has difficulty moving her head around from being chained up,” a source said. They identified DeJesus as the woman suffering from this injury and added, “If [Castro] left for long periods of time he would sometimes duct tape-up the women over all parts of their faces, even their eyes, only leaving an opening so they could breathe. Then he would just rip it off pulling off skin and hair.”

"There is a reason why you have only seen a picture of Amanda (Berry),” added one of the sources. All three women have been reunited with their families.
