Also according to sources, Castro was able to lure Gina DeJesus into his car by saying he would take Gina to visit with his daughter back at his home on Seymour. Gina was reportedly friends with Ariel Castro's daughter.

We're also learning more about evidence discovered inside the home. Sources said one piece of evidence is a suicide note, written by Castro, that said he regretted kidnapping Gina because he thought she was older than she really was. Gina was 14 when she was taken back in 2004.
