CLEVELAND — One of the three women kidnapped by Ariel Castro and kept captive for more than 10 years wrote a thank you note to Cleveland’s Second District thanking them for their efforts.

Michelle Knight, the first of three women kidnapped, expressed her gratitude to the department for their support and time spent collecting gifts and cards for the girls.

The department shared the note with their Facebook fans, which has now accumulated over 1400 likes since Wednesday night.

Castro pleaded guilty to 937 counts, including aggravated murder, kidnapping, rape and assault, and was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years.
