Floor plans detail inside of Seymour Avenue home where 3 Cleveland women held captive for 10+ years

One room no bigger than closet

CLEVELAND - Floor plans detail the inside of the Seymour Avenue home where three Cleveland women were held captive for 10 years.

It's small. Records show the home has just 1,400 square feet of livable space. In fact, one room is just 6-foot by 6-foot.

There are four bedrooms in the house and only one bathroom.

In all, the home that was built in 1950 has eight total rooms.

Downstairs, there is a living area with three smaller rooms and no air conditioning.

There is also an unfinished basement that is 760 square feet.

Records show Ariel Castro bought the home in 1992 for $12,000 but has failed to pay taxes in recent years totaling $2,500.

Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who were all missing 10 years or more, were found alive in the house on May 6. A neighbor heard Berry's cries for help and she then made a brave 911 call.

Ariel, Pedro and Onil Castro are all arrested in connection to the crime.
