Ever since this story broke, new details have been pouring in seemingly every hour.
And each new tidbit of information makes us shudder!
Ariel Castro, the man who kidnapped and held Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus for ten years, kept the victims in rooms that were the size of small closets!
Floor plans of Castro's home in Cleveland, Ohio show the actual measures of some of the rooms he kept the three women tied up in.
According to the floor plans - one room was 6×6-foot which is similar in length to a queen size bed!!! Castro bought the house for $12,000 in 1992, and it only had four bedrooms and one bathroom. The floor plans did not include the unfinished basement, which the women are believed to have been held for some time during their decade of torture.
Aside from the new details about their horrific confinements, one of the victims, Ms. Knight, has recounted to reporters when Mr. Castro forced her to deliver Amanda Berry's baby.
Castro apparently told Ms. Knight that if the baby died, he would kill her. At one point, the baby stopped breathing and Ms. Knight performed CPR on the baby until it began breathing again.
The birth happened in a kiddie sized inflatable pool!
