CLEVELAND -- With just days to go before Ariel Castro is put in prison for the rest of his life, police tell WKYC that Amanda Berry paid a visit to the house where she was held captive for nearly a decade.

Police officers guarding the Seymour Avenue house told a WKYC photographer that Berry spent about 15 minutes outside the house and talked to people gathered on the street.

Castro pleaded guilty to more than 900 charges on July 26 in relation to his kidnapping and raping Berry, Amanda DeJesus and Michelle Knight. The three women were held as prisoners in the Seymour Avenue house until they were rescued on May 6.

The rescue came after Berry broke out a door and ran for help.

Castro has accepted a plea deal that calls for a recommended sentenced of life in prison without parole plus 1,000 years.

In addition, the state will seize the Seymour Avenue house. The county says it will demolish the house within a month and turn the property over to the community to be used as the neighbors wish possibly as a park or garden.

Sources close to the families tell us that neither Amanda, Gina DeJesus or Michelle Knight are expected to attend Castro's sentencing hearing or give an impact statement in person.  Prosecutors or a victim's advocate may deliver a statement on their behalf if the women so choose.
