Moments ago, her sister, Beth, with with a sea of dozens of reporters and photographers to say Amanda Berry would not be making a statement as was first thought and that the family needs some privacy. She also thanked the media. It’s a similar scene a few blocks away at the home of Gina DeJesus, who is also expected to return home soon.
