Michelle Knight Watches As Castro’s Home Gets Demolished

Michelle Knight, carrying yellow balloons, watched Wednesday as the city began demolishing the Cleveland home where Ariel Castro held her and two other women captive for a decade.

The demolition will leave unanswered the question: How could the crimes go unnoticed so long in Ariel Castro’s neighborhood?

The house will be torn down as part of a deal that spared Castro a possible death sentence. He was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years.

Family members including son Anthony Castro went to the house Monday and picked up personal items.
