One of three women who police rescued from the house of kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro in Cleveland, Ohio on May 6, 2013.
She disappeared on August 22, 2002, the same day she was set to appear in court to fight the state for custody over her son. Due to the coincidence, investigators believed she ran away because she had given up hope of regaining custody over her child.
Upon being rescued after 11 years of imprisonment, she told police that her kidnapper had impregnated her and induced miscarriages via beatings and starvation at least five times.
Her grandmother told reporters that she required facial reconstruction surgery and that the beatings had rendered her deaf in one ear.
Amanda Berry was another kidnapping victim of Ariel Castro's.
