Six months after she was freed from the “house of horrors” where Ariel Castro held her captive for 11 years, Cleveland kidnapping victim Michelle Knight is speaking out.
In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil McGraw scheduled to air Tuesday and Wednesday, Knight describes a moment when Castro trapped her in a room and tied her up with an orange extension cord.
“I was tied up like a fish,” she said, “an ornament on the wall.”
An excerpt released by the “Dr. Phil” syndicated talk show Monday shows Knight sitting cross-legged on a couch and drawing a U-shape in the air with one finger as she describes how Castro hung her by her feet, neck and arms.
Knight also says Castro taped her mouth shut with duct tape, according to another excerpt posted on the show’s YouTube channel. And she tells McGraw she once picked a lock to try to escape, drawing an ominous warning from Castro: “Now you’re gonna be punished.”
