Ariel Castro found dead in his cell. Can't say I'm sorry.

Courtesy of 19 Action News:  

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, of the Ohio Department of Corrections, sent 19 Action News 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. 

So what do we think? Suicide or did somebody decide he was too evil even for prison?

I try to practice compassion, but I have to admit I have none for this piece of garbage. What he did to those young women was disgusting and the pain he caused them unfathomable.

Good riddance.

    He was probably suicided..remember Orange is the New Black?

    He deserved more punishment.

    I think they should quite wasting funds and resources on an investigation to determine how this happened. Time to move on. Ariel Castro was a waste of space after what he did.

    The world is a better place without him. He was evil.

  5. Too bad he was given the chance to "off" himself. Maybe, just maybe, we could have learned how to recognize this kind of crazy early, before they grow up and do so much damage. But I agree, he deserved to be locked up for a very long time as he locked up his captives. Unfortunately people who are psycho like Castro are rarely chastened by their punishment. They feel that they are now the victim and of course there is no treatment or cure for them.

      And where did you earn your PhD in neuroscience? Your psych degree? You are part of the problem why there are mental health stigmas and people DON'T seek early treatment.

    2. Why don't you look it up. And while you're at it, read the other posts that approve of much harsher punishment. Mental health stigmas are a thing of the past. Wake up, this is the 21st Century.

    3. Ariel Castro is a narcissistic sociopath. A sociopath or someone marked with an antisocial personality disorder is defined by the Mayo Clinic as someone suffering from "a type of chronic mental condition in which a person's ways of thinking, perceiving situations and relating to others are dysfunctional— and destructive." Also see Ted Bundy and Charles Manson.

      7:14, I fail to see the connection bt G Banana's comment and mental health stigma. G Banana, mental health stigma DOES still exist, particularly in the military.

    Coward's way out. This is just the final FUCK YOU to those young girls. He is now 'unreachable'. What a vile creature he became.

    Here's some Karma for you!

    He only lasted a few months in confinement, the girls he kidnapped and held captive survived for over a decade. I am so glad those girls were stronger than this piece of trash( and no Bristol, that doesn't mean you)

    At least Castro can't make attempts to see the young daughter.

    1. Anonymous6:54 AM

      That's the truth. It will be hard enough for that girl without knowing her biological father is out there (even in prison).

    Maybe Todd Palin will meet the same Grim Reaper.

  10. Well deserved, but truly he deserved much worse.

  11. Oh, I was so hoping he would have been beaten so he would know what it feels like to be on the receiving end. He was a piece of garbage who ruined three young women's lives and I hope he is at the Gates of Hell as we speak.

  12. My one and only regret is he didn't kill himself BEFORE he put those poor women through such hell.

  13. Anonymous8:22 AM

    I think he was suicided. He made a plea bargain to receive his thousand years in jail in return for NOT getting the death penalty. Somehow I don't think he would kill himself after just one month in there then.

    That said: yes, it is much better that he is gone now. The taxpayers have just been saved hundreds of thousands of dollars for his upkeep.

    The police are trying to figure out how he managed to stick 23 shivs into his own back.

  15. Anonymous12:00 PM

    The prison industrial complex is so pissed off right now, but he did take the cowards way out, he fought the death penalty thru plea's, then decided that he would take himself out when he wanted, fucking prick... worms won't even touch this guys' rotting corpse

    Where's everyone's compassion and humanity?

    That poor soul giving resuscitation measures. It must be extremely hard constantly using a toilet plunger on his mouth while defibrillating his testicles simultaneously!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
