Ariel Castro, the Cleveland man who was sentenced to life in prison
plus 1,000 years in July after pleading guilty to imprisoning and raping
three women for a decade, was found dead in his jail cell, a prison
spokeswoman said early Wednesday.
The 53-year-old convict was
found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional
Reception Center in Orient, officials said.
Prison medical staff performed CPR before Castro was transported to
Ohio State University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead,
Castro had been housed in protective custody,
which means he was in a cell by himself, and guards make rounds every 30
minutes at staggered intervals, according to the Ohio Bureau of
Prison officials said a "thorough review of this incident is underway."
That was awfully fast. It took 10 years for the police to take the phone calls from concerned neighbors seriously; yet only a few days after his final sentencing to find him dead.
I often thought it strange that no one ever knew anything...in all of that 10 years, with the plexi glass on the windows, the chains and naked girls in the backyard.
I smelled a cover up of something more sinister, the way the whole thing went down. The first gentleman that reported Amanda Berry, was basically ignored and all of the glory was given to the ignorant "actor"
There were little remarks made by his band members that he used to claim to work for the CIA...no one actually believed it...not really.
And then there was the episode of Hawaii 5-0 that aired on Monday May 6th, 2013...all about a girl who had been held captive for 10 years along with two others..The girl's name in the episode was Amanda Morris.
There is no such thing as coincidence. Not anymore.
