COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – One of three women who escaped a Cleveland house after being held for a decade has written a new book about recovering from her ordeal.
Michelle Knight was kidnapped in 2002 by Ariel Castro and kept in captivity for nearly 11 years. Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were later abducted by Castro and kept in the same house. They escaped five years ago this month.
Knight’s new book, “Life After Darkness,” comes out on Tuesday. The 37-year-old Knight says she wrote the book to show people they have the power to survive trauma, especially with a good support system.
Knight has since married and changed her name to Lily Rose Lee.
Castro was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself in his prison cell a few months later.
