    “When ur life is a drug indused blur, sometimes you dont know dreams from reality. Conversations that are had remain in the unconcious mind. Hours become days of uncertainty and before you know it you are just riding the euphoria to the bitter ends and embrace your bottom with open arms. Quote that, it’ll be in my book someday.” – Taken from his Facebook

    I know him, and have played music with him…………its always the ones you least expect, NEVER, would I have thought this of him. I have known him for years, and never knew he was Castro’s nephew.

      I have known him all his life. He may have some issues, but I know this, he has the most loving and caring parents you could ever hope to have.

      I don’t know what is issue is, but he isn’t going to be able to use the excuse that he was abused because he wasn’t. His problems are all of his own making.

      Ariel Castro was a monster. But his pathetic attempt to blame his upbringing or his family was nothing more than a way to excuse his own depravity.

      As for me, I know this family. And I know what they stand for. And the crimes that both of these people committed are so far removed from how they were raised that they have betrayed every value that they were brought up with. And their fault is their own.

    Everyone does realize that Ariel Castro’s own daughter (the one that went to school with Gina and amanda) is locked up in Indiana I believe for trying to kill her own baby! THE ENTIRE FAMILY IS SCREWED UP IN THE HEAD!!!!

      Hey Jamie; Maybe Ariel fathered her baby too. And she never said anything all these years. Doesn’t make her sick in the head. Just a victim. Careful how you label people. You could have some disgusting degenerates in your family in your family too. What would you want people to think of you? I’m just saying

    That is my family and my family dont appreciate how everyone wants to just bash our families, when just because there is a few bad apples in the family doesnt give you all the right to bash my family… We are a strong and loving family and we will get through this and remember that there are not good apples in everyones family… God bless you all…

    • Connie

      I totally agree with you. I do not feel that an entire family should get bashed because of what a caouple of family memebers have done. We all do have bad apples in our family, so we should not act like we are better than anyone else. I am sorry that you and your family are going through this, but know that everyone does not feel the same…at least I don’t! I have bad apples in my family that made the choice to be bad. I am praying for you and your family.

    I have known Jeremi and his family for most of his life, my husband and I have even gone on vacation with him and his parents. This is not the way he was raised! His parents are God fearing people, whose whole lives revole around doing God’s will. He was not abused or even had anything really traumatic happen in his life growing up. Jeremi choose not to follow in his parents foot steps. He started using drugs as a teenager, he started out using marijuana and eventually that lead to using meth, and it is that life style that lead to this, not his upbringing or his family! Just because someone chooses to do something utterly detestable like this does not mean that his family had anything to do with it. To all those that think using marijuana is harmless, just ask his victims if it is harmless now.
