Charles Ramsey reveals friendship with Michelle McKnight
The man who famously put aside his Big Mac to help rescue three women held captive in a Cleveland house for more than a decade has published his memoir.
Charles Ramsey took to Reddit to answer questions about the moment of bravery which turned him into a local hero and propelled him into the national spotlight. He has written a book about his life before and after last year’s extraordinary events, Dead Giveaway.
Mr Ramsey told fans during an online Q&A session on Tuesday that he sees Michelle Knight several nights of the week in his Cleveland neighborhood while she walks her dog.
One Reddit user asked Mr Ramsey if he kept in touch with the women he rescued on May 6 last year – Amanda Berry, along with her six-year-old daughter who was born in captivity, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.
He responded: ‘I see Michelle Knight several nights a week. Her thing is to walk her dog and meet and greet people. My thing is to walk around looking for bad dudes who want to snatch another child.’
He said that Ms Knight was catching up with technology after spending 11 years locked up in Ariel Castro’s house of horrors. Mr Ramsey also told users that Ms Knight had been working with TV psychologist Dr Phil.
‘Michelle has a tablet. They keep her up to date with things. She’s with Dr. Phil’s camp,’ he wrote on the Reddit feed.
‘She’s getting emails, responding to them. Knows how to download apps. She’s actually created music she wants to produce some day.’
Ramsey, 44, who had been working as a dishwasher, described in his book how an ordinary Monday last May took an extraordinary turn.
