The third woman kept in captivity for a decade in a Cleveland house has been released from the hospital and is asking for her privacy.
MetroHealth Medical Center spokeswoman Phyllis Marino says Michelle Knight left the hospital Friday afternoon but declined to comment further on Knight's condition or where she was going.
Earlier Friday, the hospital issued a statement on Knight's behalf:
"Michelle Knight is in good spirits and would like the community to know that she is extremely grateful for the outpouring of flowers and gifts. She is especially thankful for the Cleveland Courage Fund. She asks that everyone please continue to respect her privacy at this time."
