It's back to the basics as Tomcat and Billy kidnap the listeners to talk about a very famous true crime case of the Abduction of 3 young girls.. Between 2002 and 2004, Ariel Castro kidnapped 21-year-old Michelle Knight, 16-year-old Amanda Berry, and 14-year-old Georgina "Gina" DeJesus. Over the course of the next 11 years, he repeatedly raped, starved, and abused the young women, even impregnating Knight and Berry.
On May 6, 2013, after realizing Castro had neglected to lock the “big inside door,” Berry began screaming for help. Two neighbors heard Berry’s pleas and quickly kicked a hole through the bottom of the storm door. Berry then crawled through the hole with her 6-year-old daughter – the biological offspring of her brutal captor – in tow. When on the phone with 9-1-1, Berry exclaimed, “Help me, I've been kidnapped, and I've been missing for ten years. And I'm here. I'm free now!" Shortly after, officers entered Castro’s home and rescued Knight and DeJesus. Ariel Castro was arrested the same day.
