Cleveland, OH. -    We're learning disturbing new details about what happened inside the house where three women were held captive for more than a decade.

It's being called a "house of horrors." Sources are saying Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were chained up for several years by the neck and waist in different rooms. The women were finally unchained after Amanda had her baby who's now six years old. 

We're also learning that Michelle lost a baby because of beatings and starvation. Police are using this evidence to build a case against the alleged abductors as friends and family celebrate the women's safe return.

The three women held captive for more than a decade- are now at an undisclosed location recuperating and spending time with their families.

Amanda berry's grandmother cried tears of joy as the two spoke for the first time in ten years.  It was a moment fern gentry never thought she would have.

"I'm glad to have you back. I thought you were gone," Fern Gentry said to Amanda Berry.

The FBI has a specially trained group of investigators talking with the women and their families.

"Much of the effort that we're doing over the next several days is going to be focusing on them.  How can we, as law enforcement help speed the healing and recovery process and treat them with the dignity and respect that they deserve," says Special Agent Steve Anthony.

 At the crime scene, forensic specialists pored over every inch of the home where the women were found.

"There's ten year's of logistical information that has to be sorted through," says Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath.

Police sources the local CBS affiliate that 52-year-old Ariel, the second oldest of three brothers arrested in the case lured all three women into a trap.

According to reporter Ed Gallek, Castro tricked Amanda Berry into getting into his car while she walked home from her job at burger king.

Police tell Gallek that Castro approached DejJsus with his daughter who is a friend of hers.  Then he came back without his daughter and offered DeJesus a ride.

Michelle knight was the first girl abducted when she was picked up in the same neighborhood in 2002.

Sources are also saying that Amanda's little girl may have helped save them all. She told the women "Daddy is leaving to go see Grandma."

They didn't believe her until Amanda took a chance and peaked out. It was the moment she was able to call 911 - and escape.
