Ariel Castro's victims will probably never forget the horrors they endured over the past decade, but everything is being done to try and wipe as much evidence of his terrifying crimes from our minds.
The Cleveland Kidnapper's home was demolished in front of a small crowd of onlookers earlier this morning as a part of a plea deal he agreed to in order to avoid the death penalty.
One of the faces in the crowd was one of the victims Michelle Knight, who said it was important for her to be in attendance since nobody was there for her in her time of need.
She also mentioned her hopes of moving on to become a motivational speaker to create a support system for parents who's children have gone missing. Soon after, Michelle released a handful of yellow balloons in honor of all of the missing kids who have not been found or have lost their lives.
It's great to see that the victims are getting closer and closer to being able to move on with their lives and try to erase what happened from their memory completely.

If you're not sending our gag reflex into overdrive by showcasing people's supremely unhealthy (or borderline poisonous) obsessions - like eating rubber tires, deodorant, or vapor rub - you're sending nightmares straight to our brain with stories of individuals who have even more UNCOMFORTABLE fascinations!
For example, last night's episode of the TLC frighfest featured 62-year-old Julius, who doesn't seem to have any issues with eating things that he shouldn't, but still manages to give us the heebie-jeebies by demonstrating just how enamored he is with the “beautiful, soft, smooth, delicate” objects that the rest of us just call balloons!
But guys, don't worry! It's TOTALLY normal!
In fact, it's just like a “guy that prefers blondes or brunettes!”
His preference, however, just happens to be getting sexually aroused by inanimate objects!
We wish that this was about as uncomfortable as it gets, but just wait until he talks about the techniques he employs to ensure that he can, ahem, 'physically' express his love for the balloons!
Ch-ch-check it out…and so much MORE of the nightmare (above)!
