CLEVELAND - A police source said there were multiple pregnancies among the three missing women found in a Cleveland home Monday night.
The source told Scripps station NewsChannel5’s Paul Kiska the pregnancies were “multiple” between Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, but no specific number was mentioned.
According to the source, one of the victims had two to three miscarriages because she was malnourished.
Another police source who is actively working on this investigation told NewsChannel5’s Michael Baldwin at least five babies were born inside the home. It’s not clear if that number includes Berry’s 6-year-old daughter who was found in the house with the women.
The three victims were rescued after getting the attention of a neighbor and calling 911.
There were initial reports of more children inside the home, but police have not released any other details about that specific piece of information.
Three brothers, Ariel, Pedro and Oneil Castro were arrested Monday night in connection with the kidnappings.
