The gut-wrenching story of three women held captive for ten years in a Cleveland home gets another horrifying layer.

As Twitchy reported, one of the women, Amanda Berry was discovered with a six-year-old daughter (information about the father’s identity has yet to be released to the public). And, despite the awful circumstances in which she was found, that little girl may have been extremely fortunate. WKYC’s Tom Meyer reports that the captors raped the women, resulting in up to five pregnancies, and then beat them. The beatings were so severe that none of the developing babies survived.
