One of three women who escaped from a ramshackle Cleveland home after more than a decade in captivity is about to share her story. Michelle Knight will appear on the Dr. Phil show Tuesday and Wednesday in a taped interview.
The show says Knight “describes the horrible conditions in the house” and discusses her physical, mental, and sexual abuse. That includes “being tied up like a fish” and spending weeks chained and tortured in the basement, according to the show.
Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus escaped May 6 when Berry pushed out a door and yelled for help. Their kidnapper, Ariel Castro, pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. He hanged himself Sept. 3.
On Dr. Phil, Knight will also discuss how she was able to survive her ordeal. She was 20 years old when she was kidnapped in August 2002.
