It was nearly year ago that Charles Ramsey helped Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight escape about a decade of captivity in Ariel Castro’s home on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland.
Charles Ramsey sat down for an interview with Plain Dealer reporter Tom Feran.
Ariel Castro’s neighbor helped Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Amanda’s daughter escape a nearly a decade of captivity and abuse in the house of horrors on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland.
“Their faith has been test for ten years,” said Charles Ramsey about Gina DeJesus’ mother and father during the interview with Plain Dealer.
“They didn’t give up one day of hope….Those are the heros, it’s not me.”
Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were given 2014 Ohio Courage medals by Gov. John Kasich during his State of the State speech in February.
Ariel Castro, 53, died in prison last year when he was found hanging in his prison cell after being sentenced to life plus 1,000 years when he plead guilty to hundreds of counts of kidnapping and rape involving the three young women.
Charles Ramsey’s new book Dead Giveaway written with Randy Nyerges, has been released on May 1 by publisher Gray& Co.
Almost a year later, Charles Ramsey is the first person connected to the ordeal to release a book, Dead Giveaway, the title coming from a phrase Ramsey used in a local TV interview.
Written with Randy Nyerges of Berea and carrying the lengthy subtitle The Rescue, Hamburgers, White Folks and Instant Celebrity … What You Saw on TV Doesn’t Even Begin to Tell the Story …, the book covers a wide range of topics and much of his life.
