Pretty creepy, the abductor drives a school bus in Cleveland.
From Yahoo! News: By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Three women believed to have been abducted years ago were found alive on Monday at a Cleveland house a short distance from where at least two of them were last seen, and police said a school bus driver was arrested in connection with their disappearance. A neighbor in the community said he was alerted to their presence by screams from the house and rushed to the dwelling where he found the women, one of whom used his cell phone to call police. Help me! I'm Amanda Berry. I've been kidnapped and I've been missing for 10 years and I'm here. ...

That's crazy! What an amazing surprise that they're all still alive.

Not true, just found this interesting because the dude is a kidnapper, and drives around little kids all day.
Not to derail, but what happened to those little girls in Iowa that were missing for a while?
Found dead, no leads as to who did it, I don't think yet either,
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
That's amazing and scary at the same time. I can't wait to actually hear the story of what happened
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
From the blog The Lookout: In a strange twist, the son of one of the men suspected of kidnapping and holding three women captive for close to a decade in a Cleveland home wrote an article about one of the missing women in 2004. Ariel “Anthony” Castro, the 31-year-old son of 52-year-old Ariel Castro, wrote an article published in Cleveland's [...]
What a crazy story!
This is beyond crazy. How is it that nobody in these whack flocks family knew what was going on? I'll bet Jr did and was in on it.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
Just realized I might know the family of one of the girls. I don't know for sure, but based on last name/location, there's a good chance. Just glad they were all eventually found.
No idea. I haven't followed it too closely, but has it been determined where those girls spent the majority of their time? If it was in that house, then there had to have been other people that had at least some idea. But if they were just taken to the house that day, then there's no telling.
Just did some more reading, and it sounds like they were kept in that home the whole time. No idea how no one ever suspected anything.
Yea that's crazy. But wasn't there something similar awhile ago? The girl was living locked up behind a fake fence in the back yard? Think it was maybe out west or something. So I guess it's possible just seems weird.
Not that I recall, but I might have missed it. I'm sure someone else will chime in that remembers.
An 11-year-old California girl snatched from the street in front of her house in 1991 had two children with the man accused of taking her and was forced along with the children to live in backyard sheds, police said Thursday.
Good call - I'd totally forgotten about that.
So I guess it's possible just find it very low chance that others didn't know about those girls in that house.
Yeah, especially since, in an article I read, it said that the guy actually had other people in the house at times. In fact, it said he actually asked a man with the last name DeJesus (the same last name as one of the three girls) if his cousin had ever been found.
And it gets weirder.
From the blog The Lookout: The Cleveland home where three women were allegedly held captive for nearly a decade had ropes, chains and padlocked doors inside, police say. show. McGrath said the women—Knight, now 32, Amanda Berry, 27, and Gina DeJesus, 23—were held with chains and ropes, and allowed [...]
What a sick person.
