Child Predator Ariel Castro Found Dead in Cell

Pervert Ariel Castro, sentenced to death just over a month ago, was reportedly found hanging and dead in his cell in a Ohio prison. Castro abducted 3 young girls between the years 2002 and 2004, and held them captive in his basement in Cleveland, Ohio. One of the girl’s families was a close friend of this evil man. All three of the girls knew Castro’s children. He was charged with 937 counts, including rape and kidnapping.

Mr. Castro was housed in a cell by himself and a guard was required to check on him every 30 minutes at staggered intervals, the statement said. He was transported to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Source: NY Times

The victims were Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight and Amanda Berry. Amanda Berry bore his child and gave birth to her in the home. Ms. Knight was repeatedly beaten and rape. She suffered 5 miscarriages after Castro punched her in the stomach and starved her. She may need facial reconstruction. The women did not have access to a real bathroom and were often chained. No word as yet on what Castro used to hang himself.

The three still very young women will never receive justice, but I’d like to think Castro’s began the minute he took his last breath. The home where the girls were held captive has been demolished.

  • Was this really suicide? Or did someone proclaim justice upon him.
    But in reality the sentence this animal received was not justice but retribution. For true justice is now being dealt out by G-d.

    Indeed, Maggie.

    What these young women endured is unfathomable from a rational mindset.
    In a civilized society “justice” cannot be met in accordance to the crimes committed. Yet, as was all of Ariel Castro’s life in opposition to HIS admonishment to follow Biblical Doctrines, he took the cowards way out and hastened HIS Ultimate Justice…

    He did take the cowards way out. The prison system has its own “justice” for predators like Castro. He would have lived a thousand deaths awaiting the system to put him to death. Details omitted.

    Oops he got life + 1,000 years in prison.
