Three months and a day after the three women escaped what was then Ariel Castro’s house, it was demolished with Ms. Knight and family members of Ms. DeJesus in attendance.
The event, less than a week after Mr. Castro was sentenced to a lifetime plus 1,000 years in prison, is the latest symbol of recuperation for the women, their families, and the city.
