This was the sketch of the abductor of Georgina "Gina" Lynn DeJesus. Given they are brothers, I think the lower lip points to the brother on the right. That would be Pedro.
...Three brothers -- Ariel Castro, Onil Castro and Pedro Castro -- whose ages are between 50 and 54 -- were arrested. Ariel Castro, a former school bus driver, owned the home, situated in a poor neighborhood dotted with boarded-up houses just south of downtown Cleveland. No immediate charges were filed but the suspects are expected to be charged on Wednesday...
How did it start? Who was first and how did the perpetrators find permission to carry on?
I don't think we know the entirety of this heinous use of women. They weren't people or even human beings, they were objects. I don't understand men that do this to women. I don't know if I want to understand them. Their lives must be very dark. They were all in their forties when this began best we know at this time. They never had relationships other than these in their lives? They have no history other than brushes with police?
We are all grateful for the lives of the women and a child. But, Ms. Berry, in her telephone call, had to be terrified not for herself so much as the women still inside. She was safe. She and her daughter were out of the captive environment, but, I think her fear was based in concern for the others. If Ariel Castro were to arrive home and find her missing, I think she feared for the outcomes of the others.
Ariel Castro has a son. A successful son. A son that has little regard for him and states Ariel once nearly beat his mother to death. The couple divorced in 1996 and left the very house where the women and girl escaped capture.
..."There were places we could never go. There were locks on the basement. Locks on the attic. Locks on the garage.
He described his father as a controlling, abusive and often drunk ogre who once nearly beat his mother, Grimilda Figueroa, to death as she was recovering from brain surgery....
The son, Anthony Castro, state recently Ariel brought up the topic of Amanda. Hard to say, but, with his financial status crashing down around his ears, he was either thinking about releasing them or killing them.
In talking to his son about Amanda he was rehearsing what the world would believe if the house was to be destroyed. I think Amanda believed it was now or never; "...before he gets back...". Being in the presence of a man for ten years she probably had antennas about his moods and thoughts. I don't think he was going to turn them loose, but, perhaps burn the house to the ground with all the evidence inside. Just speculation.
