Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who went missing separately about a decade ago, were found in the home just south of downtown Cleveland and likely had been tied up during years of captivity, said police, who arrested three brothers.

As jaw-dropping and disturbing as the Cleveland kidnapping and imprisonment story of three women has been (and the eerie similarities to the Jaycee Dugard abduction case), it turns out that in 2004 that the prime suspect’s son in the Cleveland case wrote a newspaper column about the sad neighborhood mood as the original kidnappings happened. John Carlson recounts the 2004 column for disbelieving crew and listeners.
