CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

19 Action News has learned, one of the women kidnapped and held hostage in the home of Ariel Castro also became a victim a 'second' time -- even as she sat in captivity.

Multiple law enforcement sources say someone stole the identity of Michelle Knight. We've learned a woman ran a scam with her name, and she did it for years -- as Ariel Castro held Knight hostage.

Castro just plead guilty to holding three women hostage. Knight was held for more than a decade, and Castro also admitted he forced Knight to lose an unborn child, pleading guilty to murder.

Law enforcement sources say when Knight was found, they discovered a woman had been using Knight's identity all those years -- using the identity to collect government benefits.

We've learned the suspect is a woman who'd even been close to the family. And when Michelle Knight's mother moved from Cleveland to Florida, we're told the suspect even changed her address to Florida--again posing as Michelle Knight.

Cleveland Police tell us authorities in Florida are handling that investigation.
