    Ariel Castro: Convicted Cleveland kidnapper/rapist found dead in cell

    Ariel Castro: Convicted Cleveland kidnapper/rapist found dead in - Tucson News Now

    52-year-old convicted kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro was found hanging in his cell Tuesday.

    Castro was being held at the Correction Reception Center in Orient, OH in Pickaway County.

    He was sentenced August 1 to life in prison, plus 1,000 years, for kidnapping and sexually assaulting Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus while holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue house for over a decade.

    Ohio State Police and the Department of Corrections are investigating the death.

    JoEllen Smith from the Department of Corrections released this statement:

    Inmate Ariel Castro was found hanging in his cell this evening at 9:20 pm at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient. He was housed in protective custody which means he was in a cell by himself and rounds are required every 30 minutes at staggered intervals. Upon finding inmate Castro, prison medical staff began performing life saving measures. Shortly after he was transported to OSUMC where he was pronounced dead at 10:52 pm. A thorough review of this incident is underway and more information can be provided as it becomes available pending the status of the investigation.

    Well, that didn't take long.

    That's why the death penalty is so pointless. Basically, he escaped his punishment.

    It's kind of shameful how the state can't keep people in their custody safe. Not that I'm mourning his death or anything, but still, the state does an absolutely terrible job of keeping inmates safe.

    Jailhouse justice. A pedophiles life expectancy in Federal Prison is not very long.

    So ironic that he held little girls as prisoners for so many years but didn't have the guts to stick it out in jail himself.

    One less monster in the world.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I agree...his life span wouldn't be long, but I would have liked knowing that he would have suffered as much as the young women that he held captive...even if it had only been a couple or so years before his demise. And who knows, he may well have been forced to endure torture for those years that he survived. And we all know that he tortured his victims...so...in the end, as you said...jailhouse justice would have been served.

    Agreed. Ironic that jailhouse justice is not considered cruel and unusual, but castrating the bast@rd, putting him in a hole and feeding him through a tube for the next 20 years while he has to live in his his own body waist... is.
