One of those sources tells the Investigator Tom Meyer that the  captors would beat the pregnant girls. Both sources say the babies didn't survive.

Calls to the Cleveland Police Department were not immediately returned.

The sources say it is unclear what happened following the pregnancies.

Police have arrested three men following the discovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight on Monday evening.

Investigators are going through the home for clues, including the backyard where they found "disturbed" dirt. The sources did not know whether that was related to the pregnancies.
