Long drop off a short rope for Ariel Castro

Ariel Castro

Ariel Castro gives himself a nice long stretch

Ariel Castro is dead, he apparently hung himself. A total coward to the end.

I wonder how many ropes and books of knot-tying instructions he was sent in the mail.

Convicted kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro was found dead on Tuesday evening, 19 Action News reported. He was 52. 

On Aug. 1, Castro was sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping and raping Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus, and holding them captive in his Cleveland home for more than a decade.

According to JoEllen Smith of the Ohio Department of Corrections, Castro was found hanging in his prison cell at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, Ohio around 9:20 p.m. Although prison medical staff performed lifesaving measures, he was later pronounced dead at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

At the time of his death, Castro was isolated from other inmates for his own protection.

Ohio State Police and the Department of Corrections are investigating the death.

I hope they aren’t rushing at the investigation, accidents happen all the time in prison.
