Topic - Ariel Anthony Castro
Ariel Anthony Castro, the son of the now-deceased Cleveland area kidnapper who killed himself in jail after holding three Ohio women hostage for almost a decade, said in an essay he penned for a local newspaper that he still can’t believe his father’s crimes – but that perhaps good can come of all, regardless.
He also said that perhaps his father's crimes, as well as his life and death, can lead to positive change.
"[Maybe it] can lead to changes in how we deal with sexual predators, domestic violence, mental illness and yes, prison safety," he said. "If we can prevent a repeat here or anywhere, then justice truly will have been served amid all the broken pieces my father left behind."
