BREAKING: Ariel Castro, Kidnapper And Rapist, Found Hanged In Cell
Ariel Castro, the convicted kidnapper who kept three women captive in his Cleveland home for a decade, has been found hanged in his prison cell. Castro had previously pleaded guilty to the charges against him to avoid the death penalty.
Prison officials at the Ohio Correctional Reception Center discovered Castro's body hanging in his cell at 9:20 pm Tuesday local time (01:20 GMT Wednesday). After various attempts to revive him his body was transferred to The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead an hour later.
