Ariel Castro, the man who kidnapped and held three women for over 10 years in his Cleveland, Ohio area home was found dead in an Ohio correctional facility near Columbus, Ohio.  It appears that Castro hung himself in his cell last night.

He was found hanging in his cell by one of the guards. They tried to resuscitate him but they couldn’t. Castro was along in his cell and guards were suppose to be checking on him every 30 minutes. His body has been turned over to the Franklin county corner office to be examined.

Castro received a life plus 1,000 year sentence for what he did to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Castro was discovered by a guard about 9:20 pm and then he was transported to Ohio State University Medical Center but was pronounced dead at 10.52 p.m.

Many think it is good that he took this way out and saved the tax payers all the money of taking care of him for the rest of his life. His suicide comes just a month after he received his sentence. The prison is going to hold an investigation to see how this could happen.

He was alone in his cell and they don’t expect foul play. Castro knew his fate wasn’t going to be good once he arrived at the prison that would house him for the rest of his life. He was not on suicide watch while he was at the processing center.
