Three women in Cleveland who disappeared ten years ago were found alive this week and three brothers who allegedly kidnapped them have been arrested. One of the women actually called the police and it turns out that they were living a few blocks from where they were abducted from:
Three brothers connected to the disappearances of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight have been arrested.
The men, ages 50, 52, and 54, are expected to be charged within the next 36 hours.
Cleveland Police confirm that the three women were located in a house on Seymour Avenue Monday afternoon.
All three seem to be in good health.
“I can’t wait to talk to her, I can’t wait to hold her, to see her,” said Gale Mitchell, Amanda’s aunt.
According to police a woman claiming to be Amanda Berry called 911 Monday. She said she was kidnapped 10 years ago and said she is currently at a home at 2210 Seymour.
But as DJ Grothe linked on Facebook, not long after Berry disappeared, her mother asked renowned “psychic” Sylvia Browne if she was still alive and she said she was dead.
Amanda Berry’s mother traveled to New York to tell her story to Psychic Sylvia Browne on the Montel Williams Show. The show was a shot at getting her daughter’s picture before the eyes of millions of Americans. “On April 21st 2003, 16-year-old Amanda Berry left her part-time job never to be seen again,” the show began. With that, TV viewers across America now know a girl from Cleveland is missing. But Amanda Berry’s mom wanted more than her daughter’s picture on national TV. She wants answers. “Can you tell me…Is she out there?” Berry’s mother Louwana Miller asked. “I hate when they’re in the water,” Browne said. “She’s not alive honey.” It was bad news from the world-renowned psychic. It’s what Miller didn’t want to hear. “So you don’t think I’ll ever see her again,” Miller said. “Yeah in Heaven on the other side,” Browne responded. “I’m sorry.” Montel took a commercial break and Amanda’s mom broke down. Although the FBI says Sylvia Browne has never solved one of their cases, Miller has faith in psychics. “It hurts my mind but it eases it; now I know,” Miller said.
Sounds like she should stop believing in psychics.
