CLEVELAND — The son of kidnapping suspect, Ariel Castro, is providing a glimpse inside the Seymour Avenue house where three women were held captive for 10 years.
In photos provided to the FOX 8 I-Team by Anthony Castro, there is a sinister foreshadowing. Anthony Castro told us by phone that, at the time, he did not understand why his father had a lock on the basement door and other doors in the house.
According to Cleveland police, the locked basement would later become a dungeon and torture chamber for Ariel Castro’s victims. The truth was revealed when Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued on May 6.
In another photo, provided by Anthony Castro, his father is shown with a former girlfriend. A year after the picture was taken, the first kidnapping victim, Michelle Knight, would vanish and was then subjected to a decade of brutality.
By 2004, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus would suffer the same fate.
Anthony Castro told us by phone that he is so sickened by the crimes his father is now accused of, that he hopes the man he called “Dad” is locked up for the rest of his life.
