Deranged kidnapper, abuser and killer; Ariel Castro was found dead in his prison cell on Tuesday at around 9:00 PM from an apparent suicide. Castro was sentence to over 1,000 years in prison without parole for his horrific crimes against three young girls and babies who were killed in the womb. Castro had been placed on protective custody, but not on suicide watch. Under this protection, guards would monitor him every half hour.
Castro was believed to have a sociopathic disorder which did not allow him to process social environments and interaction properly. He also had difficulty processing morality. However, his suicide shows that he indeed had a conscience and felt guilt and fear. A sociopath normally would be indifferent to his situation and any situation he/she may cause or have caused on others.
However, some believe this suicide is a message of defiance to his victims and the legal system. I personally do not see it this way. The guy was a coward, lived like one and died like one.
May God forgive him of his sins and may God bring peace to his victims.
