I am a former clevelander and my heart is still there I guess. My Grandmother use to live very close by where those three brave wonderful girls { Michelle, Gina and Amanda} were abducted so I followed the case very closely. I just read the book and it was very good, Michelle showed bravery most could not. She is a hero along with Gina and Amanda.

What I do not understand is the media, TV, papers, etc....had information conflicting with the book. First off it said Michelle was abducted near West 106th street, right where my Gramma use to live, they said she had relatives on lorain?106 st? Does she have relatives near there not?? The book indicated she was kidnapped near West 25th which is not real close which area did he take her from? I know Amanda and Gina were abducted near W. 105th which is closer, also does she have a grandmother in Cleveland? I dont know that street.

Also the media said she was raped by three boys at junior high school resulting in pregnancy, the book said she had relations with the high school captain teenage football player, and that is how Joey was born.

I am kind of confused I guess, the book is probably more accurate, since Michelle would know and the media sometimes gets things wrong, I know the area around lorain has gone downhill and its sad, I remember walking to Sears for a hot dog and coke, and then to the ice cream shop on W.105, back in the late eighties and early nineties, when I was like only 10 or 12 years old, I guess the neigborhood has changed, its so sad because yrs ago it was so safe. Is it that bad?

Anyway my hat goes off too those three brave strong girls, now women who survived at the hands of that monster, I wish them nothing but health happiness and love. Any help would be appreciated GO BROWNS!!

For what it's wroth my heart goes out for all three of them yet my father stated to me that Michelle knight was a known hooker on the west side before being abducted. My father who passed away in 2013 stated to me that he was with her before the abduction many times and that would explain the over lapping story. hooker or not she did not deserve what happened. This info is all hearsay from my father but he would have no reason to lie to me I knew he was a "john"

Wow, I did not know that! I hope its not true, but like you said why would your Dad lie. I know she had a very very hard life even before Castro.

I would like to hear from some of her relatives or friends and how she is doing? I know she has several cousins on the west side. I was a west side girl before moving too Olmsted Falls, my grandparents lived over fifty years on the west side!!

I forgot too say I hope she is reunited with her son very soon. He deserves to know his biological Mother and how brave and strong she is.

I am kind of dissapointed. I was hoping for more replies especially given the fact this was such a big news story that went national news.\\

NO ONE knows or knew Michelle? that is kind of sad. I wish the three girls all the best and recovery. They deserve it so after living thru that horrible nightmare with that monster!

I feel kind of sad that I did not recieve more responses to my questions!

This was a very very large event in Cleveland, three girls were rescued from a mad man monster and no one has any info?? No one knew them or are related to them? and can clear up the questions the book conflicted with the media with? I thought more people cared. These girls are brave courageous souls. May they find happiness and closure. I so wanted to hear from friends and familiy of thiers who knew them.

I wonder why some posters judged my posts as "nuts' and "spam" and "clueless". OUCH! Let me assure you I am not a spammer or a nut or clueless. I am a former Clevelander who was just interested in these three girls who showed so much bravery and courage thru unspeakable odds.

My grandmother lived very close to the kidnappings and I use to walk those streets, the fact that I am interested, is not far-fetched or odd!

I imagine the people who judged me that way do not care about Cleveland or those wonder girls, how sad and shameful. Cleveland should be proud of those girls, and I know most are, I guess except for a couple of fools that posted badly!
