Interfaith Meeting Set for Women Found
CLEVELAND — Members of Cleveland City Council and other political dignitaries along with community members are expected to attend an interfaith meeting Thursday regarding the Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus cases.
It will be held at the Immanuel Lutheran Church hall on Scranton Road in Cleveland at 7 p.m.
Councilperson Brian Cummins of Ward 14 organized the event.
Representatives from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office will also attend.
Knight, Berry and DeJesus escaped a Seymour Avenue home Monday after being held captive for a decade.
They each disappeared from a west side neighborhood in 2002, 2003 and 2004 respectively.
Their alleged captor, Ariel Castro, 52, appeared at an arraignment Thursday morning on kidnapping and rape charges.
His bond was set at $8 million.
The Cleveland Courage Fund has been established to help the victims.
