CLEVELAND — The only victim still hospitalized after a decade of captivity in a Cleveland house is thanking the public for an outpouring of flowers and gifts.
A statement issued Friday by MetroHealth Medical Center on behalf of Michelle Knight says she is in good spirits and grateful for the Cleveland Courage Fund created to aid the victims.
Knight, rescued Monday with two other women, asks in the statement that her privacy be respected.
A missing-person report on Knight filed one day after she disappeared in 2002 said without elaboration that she has a mental condition and often is confused about her surroundings.
Former Cleveland school bus driver Ariel Castro has been charged with rape and kidnapping for keeping Knight and two other women captive.
