Ramsey's heroic story turned into a national story earlier this week.
Neighbor Charles Ramsey has told how he heard screams coming from an Ohio home and went to investigate -- a decision that led to the discovery of three women missing for years. To the neighbors, the house on Seymour Avenue in Cleveland seemed normal. There was nothing to indicate that inside -- in addition to the resident they had come to know -- were women who had disappeared in separate cases about a decade ago. That changed on Monday. "This girl is kicking the door and screaming," Ramsey told NBC station WKYC-TV. "So I go over there ... and I say, 'Can I help? What's going on?' And she says, 'I've been kidnapped, and I've been in this house a long time. I want to leave right now.'" (NBC News)
As an ode to his life-saving effort, SOHH has created a special Charles Ramsey dedication mix.
