Volunteers help install donated privacy fence for Gina DeJesus

CLEVELAND - One of the three Cleveland women held captive for more than a decade is now one step closer to gaining more privacy at her house.

Volunteers started work on Sunday to install a fence around the DeJesus family's west side home.

A company donated the 6-foot privacy fence, which is worth about $3,000.

Previous installation attempts were delayed because city ordinances require a 4-foot fence for corner properties. The company's owner fought the case before a variance board and won.

Gina's mother, Nancy Ruiz, said her daughter looks forward to soaking up the sun in privacy. According to Ruiz, many people have stopped at the home to take pictures.
