CLEVELAND- Two of Ariel Castro's victims will write a book describing details of their ten year ordeal.
Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus plan to tell the story of their capture, subsequent torture and survival with the help of Pulitzer Prize-winning author and Cleveland-native Mary Jordan.
In a statement, James R. Wooley of law firm James Day who represents the women said the two wish to negate incorrect information in circulation.
“Many have told, and continue to tell this story in ways that are both inaccurate and beyond the control of these young women," Wooley said. Our clients have a strong desire for privacy, but it is a reality that confronts them every day. Gina, Amanda and their families have decided to take control and are now interested in telling the story of what happened to them.”
Berry and DeJesus, along with Michelle Knight, were held captive and abused by Castro in his Cleveland home for a decade.
Castro was found hanging in his cell after his conviction and sentencing in September.
