Kidnap Victim Michelle Knight, Speaks to Dr. Phil in 3 Part Interview
excerpt from 11/5 airing
Michelle Knight, the first of three women abducted by Ariel Castro and held for over a decade, speaks out in an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil.
As the first victim to break her silence, she makes never-before-heard revelations about what went on in Castro’s Cleveland house of horrors. This multi-part interview will air November 5, November 6 and November 7, 2013 (check local listings).
Knight recalls the day-to-day details of her decade in a manner than can be described as passionate, moving and poignant. She is the self-proclaimed, most hated victim in the house, and according to Knight, suffered the most abuse at the hands of Castro.
The nightmare began for Knight on August 23, 2002 when she was abducted at the age of 21. Knight was joined in her prison by Amanda Berry in April, 2003 and then Gina DeJesus about a year later. The three escaped from Castro’s home on May 6, 2013. “Michelle Knight’s story of horror and courageous survival almost defies description and has changed me like no other in 12 years of doing the show,” Dr. Phil said. “Her dark journey from victim to victor is beyond compelling.”
