Cleveland kidnapper's home demolished
CLEVELAND — The Cleveland home where Ariel Castro held three women captive for more than a decade is no more.
Crews tore down Castro's home residence early Wednesday.
One of Castro's victims, Michelle Knight, was on hand.
She led onlookers in a release of balloons, which she said represented children who have not been found.
"This is for the missing children," said Knight. "Nobody was there for me when I was missing and I want the people out there to know including the mothers that they can have strength, they can have hope — and their child will come back."
Castro was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years for charges including murder and kidnapping.
