A spokesperson from the prison said Castro died of an apparent suicide.
Castro plead guilty to kidnapping three women in Cleveland more than a decade ago. The three women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20 years old. They escaped May 6, when one of the women broke part of a door and yelled to neighbors for help. Castro was arrested that evening.
Castro was sentenced Aug. 1 to life in prison plus 1,000 years on his guilty plea to 937 counts including kidnapping and rape.
WBNS reports Castro was not part of the general prison population for his own protection, due to the high profile of his case.
Sorry if this has already been posted but I woke up and saw this in the news this morning. Thank you Mr. Castro for saving the us people a lot of tax dollars and I hope this brings peace to his victims.
