Ohio kidnapper and sexual predator Ariel Castro has killed himself in prison by hanging. Castro was convicted last month on over 300 charges related to the kidnapping, sexual abuse and imprisonment of three girls in his Cleveland, Ohio home.
The 53-year-old Puerto-Rican man was being held at the Correction Reception Center in Orient, Ohio. Prison authorities found him hung in his cell at 9:20 EST and tried to resuscitate him. He was transported to the Wexner Medical Center at the Ohio State University where he was pronounced dead at 10:52 p.m. according to local reports.
