Cleveland Kidnapping Victims Release Video Thanking Their Supporters [Video]


It’s been just over two months since Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were saved from the home where they had been held captive for over ten years. The women have mostly stayed out of the public eye, but released a video Tuesday morning to express their gratitude to those who have supported them. 

In the video, Berry starts out by thanking people for their support, and then reiterates that the women would still like for the public to respect their privacy. DeJesus appears with her parents at her side, thanking the thousands of people who donated to the Cleveland Courage Fund.

Knight’s statement is far more scripted than the others, it seems. But she she expresses her gratitude for people’s support and notes “I may have been through Hell and back. But I am strong enough to walk through Hell with a smile on my face.”
