Cleveland kidnappings: Charles Ramsey’s turbulent 15 minutes of fame

< Previous Page

Clayton said she hoped Ramsey’s legacy will be in his actions, not his words.

"I would like for him to be remembered, as he said, as a good man who did what anyone else would have done in that situation," she said. "Unfortunately, I fear that he’ll be remembered as the guy they made a funny Auto-tune song about."

It was a far more subdued Ramsey who appeared on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday. He did flash signs of his personality, holding up a can of Red Bull when he was asked how he was dealing with the attention and joking about being rivals with George Stephanopoulos’ high school alma mater.

He did a brief dance upon recalling how he used to listen to salsa music with Castro.

But he turned serious when Stephanopoulos asked if he had noticed any signs that his neighbor could be capable of the crimes he is accused of.

"No," he said. "Isn’t that scary? Either I’m that stupid or his kind are that good."

Ramsey has said he doesn’t feel like a hero and was quiet at Stephanopoulos’ question about what all the attention means to him.

"There is no feeling," he said. "You do what you’ve got to do."
