Report Suggests Ariel Castro's Death Not Suicide
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKRC) -- Ohio officials suggest in a new report it's possible Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro may have died of auto-erotic asphyxiation, not suicide.
The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says Castro's pants and underwear were pulled down to his ankles when he was found hanging from a hinge on a window in his cell.
Castro did not leave a suicide note. A report released today also says two prison guards falsified logs documenting their observation of Castro in the hours before he killed himself.
The report says video indicates guards failed to check on Castro at least eight times before he died.
