"The driver says no more than 3 minutes passed from the first sign of smoke to a raging blaze that killed five women."

Any idea how long it takes to stop a car from 70 mph and open a door; I bet it can be done in less than 10 seconds and 5 women are still alive. This is beyond terrible on so many levels it stagers the imagination. I don't know what the real story is here but you can bet there is much more to this than we are being told.

"Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who were last seen as teens in 2003 and 2004, turn up near downtown Cleveland."

There were three ladies, no mention of the third who was 20 when abducted.

The three brothers should be castrated, put in a 6 x 10 windowless cell with bread and water at night, worked very hard during the day, until they drop - for pay that goes 100% to these ladies.

The only blessing here is that they didn't kill these ladies; I would guess there were times in the last 10 years that the ladies wished they had. It saddens me to no end to read what we are capable of, and they say there is no devil; talk about the proverbial wool over the eyes. I pray for mental strength for these women.
