CLEVELAND (AP) — The block where authorities say three young women who vanished a decade ago were held captive by a man and his two brothers has many faces.
On one end, magnificent stained-glass windows rise two stories up a handsome brick church. At the other end, truck bays open into a bleak warehouse. In between are about 20 houses, some tidy, some with boards or broken glass instead of windows. In the middle of the Seymour Avenue block stands the home where the women were found.
On Tuesday, neighborhood residents described a compact world, friendly but cautious, where people keep their heads down and police don’t always protect or serve.
Richard DeJesus, who lives nearby and whose mother lived on Seymour for years, says it’s “a place where folks don’t pry.”
