Gina DeJesus, one of the women held against her will for a decade in a Cleveland, Ohio, home by Ariel Castro, has finally surfaced on video, along with her fellow former captives.
This marks the first time that DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michelle Knight have spoken to the public since having been found on May 6, 2013. For a decade, the women were raped, beaten, and forced to wear dog leashes while naked by Castro and his two brothers, Onil Castro and Pedro Castro.
In the 3-minute, 33-second video, each of the women appeared separately to say a few words. Berry, who first screamed for help through a crack in the front door at Castro’s home, expressed her extreme happiness “to be home with my family, my friends.”
