PHILADELPHIA (CNN/WAVY) - Tamara Breeden, Derwin McLemire and Herbert Knowles, three of the four victims held captive inside a northeast Philadelphia home basement with no food, spoke about the horror they experienced.
50-year-old Linda Weston, a convicted killer, was arrested for kidnapping and assaulting four mentally disabled adults.
Police say the four were manipulated by Weston, who, they claim, took their social security information to collect their checks.
41-year-old McLemire, originally from North Carolina, says he met Weston through an online dating website. "I escaped one time to one of the houses we used to live in of hers and I didn't get away so they got me," said McLemire. When police found McLemire, he was chained to a boiler in the basement.
40-year-old Herbert Knowles, of Norfolk, said in addition to being held captive, he was beaten by Gregory Thomas. Thomas, along with Eddie Wright, were also arrested in connection with this case.
The FBI is now involved in this case because it appears one of the suspects was with the victims in Texas and Florida.
A man who was able to elude capture for more than two decades was finally found in Norfolk.
North Carolina transportation officials say the Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks could reopen next week if dredged sand placed around exposed pilings compacts well.
Newport News Police are still looking for a killer more than four years after a 17-year-old was shot dead.
