COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ariel Castro, the man who held three women captive in his Cleveland home for around a decade, has committed suicide.
The 53-year-old Castro had just begun serving his life plus 1,000-year sentence after pleading guilty to charges.
Ohio corrections officials say Castro was not under suicide watch, but was being held in protective custody.
