As a shocking development out of Cleveland, Ohio reveals three women found alive after allegedly being kidnapped and held for nearly 10 years, on Monday evening, "Piers Morgan Live" aired a fascinating interview conducted with the neighbor of the man who had reportedly been holding the missing persons.
With Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight suddenly free and safe, Charles Ramsey recounted how he aided in the rescue:
"I'm eating my McDonald's. I come outside, I see this girl going nuts, trying to get out of a house," he explained. "So I go on the porch and she says 'Help me get out, I've been here in a long time.'"
After kicking in the bottom of the door, Berry was able to come out. And she wasn't alone:
"She comes out with a little girl and she says 'Call 911. My name is Amanda Berry.'"
Ramsey says it didn't immediately register that he'd just rescued a girl that had been missing for more than a decade:
"I thought this girl was dead," he said.
Ramsey has lived next door to the girl's alleged captor for a year, and was shocked by the gall he'd shown in perpetrating the crime so blatantly:
"I barbecue with this dude. We eat ribs and whatnot and listen to salsa music," Ramsey detailed. "Not a clue that that girls was in that house, or anybody else was in there against their will."
In a colorful way all his own, Ramsey went on to explain the exact moment he realized the case was special:
"Bro, I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran to a black man's arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway."
Meanwhile, after airing the interview with Ramsey, Piers Morgan next played this evening's 9-1-1 call, in which a frightened Berry begged for help:
"I've been kidnapped and I've been with him for 10 years and I'm here, I'm free now," says Berry, in a frenzied tone. "I'm Amanda Berry. I've been on the news for the last 10 years."
