Cleveland, OH - Police Release Mugshots Of Three Brothers Arrested In Ohio Kidnap Case
Cleveland, OH - Now, after the astounding discovery, three men are in police custody. They are brothers.
Cleveland police on Tuesday identified them as 52-year-old Ariel Castro, 54-year-old Pedro Castro and 50-year-old O’Neal Castro.
Law enforcement sources say they are investigating allegations that three missing women found alive in a Seymour Avenue may have been pregnant multiple times. It is unclear if more than one child had been born.
The sources also say that the victims, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, all appear to be malnourished, and that Knight may have suffered hearing loss. She has reportedly told police she was hit in the head. She may also have structural damage to her face.
A source further noted that Knight told police that there was another woman in the home when she got there, but one day she woke up and the woman was gone. There is writing on the wall in the basement which includes the name of a female and says, “Rest In Peace,” but police do not know if that is related to the case at this time.
Meanwhile, a police spokesperson on Tuesday said all three women had been released from the MetroHealth Medical Center and were taken to a “secure location.”
