One of the women held captive for years by kidnapper Ariel Castro says in a new interview that she was “tied up like a fish” during parts of her ordeal.

Michelle Knight, Castro’s first victim, will break her silence during an interview airing on the Dr. Phil show Tuesday and Wednesday. “I was tied up like a fish, an ornament on the wall,” she said in excerpts of the interview that aired Monday morning on the Today show. “That’s the only way I can describe it.”

Knight said that Castro lured her into his home and then beat her and wouldn’t let her leave, tying her up with an orange extension cord. In the interview, she shows Dr. Phil how she was bound by her neck and feet and left that way for days at a time.

Castro, who held three women captive in a Cleveland home for years, was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years earlier this year, but one month into his sentence, he was found dead in his cell. An investigation found the cause of death may have been auto-erotic asphyxiation, a masturbation technique that involves oxygen deprivation.


The child abuse that Jim Singer reported, is still being covered up by the same government, who is prosecuting those involved in the Penn State scandal. 

Government officials have serious problems, especially because of the following documents: 

1)Judge's Order confirms Singer’s report of suspected child abuse, but still no case opened (confirmed by Police)

2)Dauphin County DA/prosecutor requested a criminal investigation by the Attorney General (similar to the Penn State scandal)

3)State Police Lt. Hooverconfirmedthat ". . . violations (by state officials)of thePennsylvania Crimescode . . . exist.”

4)Government officials wrote letters contrary to the State’s own legal record [i] to commit fraudulent concealment of crimes.

Dauphin County DA/prosecutor requested a criminal investigation by the Attorney General (similar to the Penn State scandal), because it clearly involves allegations that persons were attempting to influence state officials . . . or benefit from such influence . . . (71 PS §732=205 (1)." But, instead of investigating, the AG’s office, State Police and other law enforcement wrote letters contrary to the State’s own evidence, to commit fraudulent concealment of crimes.

The statute of limitations is currently open based on fraudulent concealment of criminal violations and also new continuing violations by law enforcement. 

State Police Lt. Hoover (now retired) confirmed “. . . . Department of Stateused its influence to block interest in an investigation.” Lt. Hoover also noted misrepresentation by government officials, contrary to the state’sown evidence.Police Lt. Hooverconfirmedthat ". . . violations (by state officials)of thePennsylvania Crimescode . . . exist.” confirmed by the State Police summary. These crimes by government include state and federal violations

The resilience of these brave young women is admirable, but it never should have happened in the first place.  Accused pedophiles/ child molesters  like Ariel Castro, Sylvain Kustyan, Jerry Sandusky, etc. (and their enablers) must be apprehended before they have years to continue to destroy young lives. Sandusky and Castro are now out of the picture. But unfortunately, Kustyan, who has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled to avoid imminent arrest. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Hermin/ Mazingarbe, France, has led numerous groups of schoolchildren on trips to the US, the UK and Ireland. Perpetrators condemn their victims to a lifetime of emotional and psychological trauma and often permanent physical ailments as well. Since the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and since the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and since there is no effective treatment and no known cure, they and their enablers must be stopped ASAP!
