Two of the women held captive for a decade in a Cleveland home before escaping in May are telling their harrowing tale to a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author.
Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, who have largely been silent on the details of their captivity and bondage, are being interviewed for a book by Mary Jordan of the Washington Post, according to attorney James R. Wooley, who represents the women.
“Many have told, and continue to tell, this story in ways that are both inaccurate and beyond the control of these young women,” Wooley wrote in a statement. “Gina, Amanda and their families have decided to take control and are now interested in telling the story of what happened to them.”
Jordan and her Washington Post colleague, Kevin Sullivan, will collaborate on the book, Wooley said.
