“There’s a lot of people that go through tremendous pain, and just because
you’re not chained up and you’re not locked in the basement doesn’t mean
you ain’t trapped. I know exactly what it feels like to be trapped in your own
mind, in your emotional mind and told “‘You can’t do anything about it, nobody will care about what you say.’ I had that happen to me – and it is the most worse-est feeling, to feel like nobody cares, nobody understands.” – Michelle Knight

Michelle Knight supports another woman’s account of how she was held captive, even though neighbors are “doubtful.”
