Three women who vanished more than a decade ago were freed on Monday. At a press conference Tuesday morning, Cleveland deputy police chief Ed Tomba credited one of them, Amanda Berry, as a “real hero.” Berry escaped the home where she had been held since age 16 with Michele Knight and Gina DeJesus and contacted 911 with the help of “dead giveaway guy” Charles Ramsey.
