Dr. Phil Interviews Michelle Knight

As the first victim to break her silence, Michelle Knight reveals to Dr. Phil the horrific details of what happened to her in the basement of Castro’s home, during her more than 11 years of confinement. Michelle is "The Forgotten One," Dr. Phil says.   "Three girls were taken. Three girls were rescued. Two girls went home. She had no home to go to. And the things that he did to her during that time — she needed a voice. She needed to talk about it."


Michelle reveals one of the most disturbing traumas she endured.


Dr. Phil and The Doctors discuss the horrific details of Michelle's multiple pregnancies.

Ariel Castro was sentenced to more than 1,000 years in prison for kidnapping and raping Michelle and the two other women. He was found dead in his cell on September 3, 2013.
