Ariel Castro kidnappings

Between 2002 and 2004, three young women—Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Georgina "Gina" DeJesus—were kidnapped by Ariel Castro and held captive in his home in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. They were subsequently imprisoned in his house on Seymour Avenue until May 6, 2013, when Berry escaped with her six-year-old daughter and contacted the police. Knight and DeJesus were rescued by responding officers and Castro was arrested within hours.

The Aftermath

Here you can see photos I took of the scene hours after the girls were found. Most of the street was blocked off to the public. This is the closest you could have gotten to Ariel Castro's house. News crews from all over the country came to my city. I even got a glimpse of Anderson Cooper in a trailer. Not something I would like to be known for...
