The two-part exclusive interview airs Tuesday and Wednesday
Michelle Knight, the first of Ariel Castro’s Cleveland kidnapping victim, will share her story Tuesday and Wednesday on “Dr. Phil.”
The two-part exclusive interview will reveal “unspeakable acts of cruelty that took place inside Cleveland’s now notorious house of horrors,” the show’s website says.
A sneak peak video shows Dr. Phil painting a picture of Knight, in Castro’s basement, chained to a pole with a helmet on, with chains around her neck. In the same teaser, Knight also recounts her mouth being taped shut with duct tape.
The “Dr. Phil” website says that in the interview, Knight speaks about the “horrific, unrelenting physical, sexual and mental abuse” she endured. The survivor, who was the first of Castro’s kidnapping victims, also speaks about the first time she encountered victims number two and three, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were abducted later.
Castro held Knight and the other two young women captive inside his Cleveland home for a decade, before they were finally rescued in May. Castro was arrested and sentenced to life in prison. But three weeks into his sentence, in September, Castro committed suicide, hanging himself.
