Cleveand kidnapper hangs himself in cell

posted at 8:01 am on September 4, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

One of the most notorious sex-crimes offenders in history committed suicide overnight, just a month after bargaining to avoid the death penalty.  Ariel Castro, who was charged with almost a thousand counts related to the kidnapping and enslavement of three young girls for more than a decade and the murders of their unborn children, managed to hang himself in his cell, even though the Ohio prison had him in protective custody due to his mental state and his infamy:

Kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro was found hanged in his jail cell just a month after being sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years for holding three women captive in his Cleveland home, a prison official said early Wednesday.

Medical officials tried to revive the 53-year-old former school bus driver after he was discovered around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, Ohio, authorities said. …

Castro had been housed in protective custody, which means he was in a cell by himself, and guards make rounds every 30 minutes at staggered intervals, according to the Ohio Bureau of Prisons.

Thirty-minute gaps leave plenty of time for preparation for hanging one’s self, apparently, as well as for the act itself.  Given the number of prisoners and the resources available, that may be the best Ohio prisons can manage to protect certain prisoners from others as well as from themselves.  Castro’s attorney wants an investigation — “This is a human being,” he told Today in an interview this morning — and there will certainly be one. Unless it was something other than suicide, though, it’s difficult to see how Ohio could have protected Castro any further.  A court found him legally sane, so a padded room wasn’t going to be the answer.

It’s curious in another sense, too.  Castro could have fought the charges and taken a chance with a jury, but he cut the deal to avoid the death penalty.  Instead, Castro ended up killing himself far sooner than Ohio could have arranged an execution.  Perhaps the finality of his situation sunk into his psyche, or maybe Michelle Knight’s parting words at his sentencing proved more prophetic than anyone realized:

“I spent 11 years in hell,” the 32-year-old Knight told her tormentor. “Your hell is just beginning.”

One psychologist calls this the “final slap” at his victims:

Kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro’s apparent prison suicide may deprive his victims of a vital sense that justice has been done, a leading psychologist said Wednesday.

“Going forward now these girls are going to have to find a way of healing without a sense of justice,” said Dr. Linda Papadopoulos, a U.K.-based psychologist and author. “We want the sense of justice when we heal. Sometimes we have to heal without it, and sadly that is what they will have to do.”

She added: “He decided his fate, something they were never ever ever able to do for themselves. He had ultimate control. To some extent this was in a way his last slap to their faces —  ‘I’ve got this over you’.”

That may be what Castro intended, but it’s probably going to have the opposite effect for the three young women. As long as Castro was alive, he’d be the center of curiosity and conversation.  With his death, Ariel Castro becomes officially and irrevocably part of the past instead of the present.  That frees the victims in a very real sense to get back to being themselves, rather than a part of Castro’s story.

Not supposed to be like clockwork. You excerpted that yourself.

Not that it matters. No one will weep for this man, and I don’t think he will find Hell to be much of an escape.

HotAirian on September 4, 2013 at 8:18 AM

Unlikely. He maintained he did nothing wrong. (“It was copnsensual.” “I can’t help it, I’m sick.”)

He hung himself because he couldn’t face not being able to imprison, beat, and rape young girls.

Blake on September 4, 2013 at 8:26 AM

Most likely correct answer. He was a sexual predator deprived of the opportunity to “hunt”. And a control freak who realized that from now on, others would be in control of him.

Also, his choice was either solitary- or a general population full of three-hundred-pound guys named Tiny with the mindset of Marsellus Wallace in Pulp Fiction.

And Castro would have been the “hillbilly”.

I’m mainly surprised it took him this long. Most such jail/prison suicides occur before or during the trial period. I can only assume that he somehow believed that there was a chance that the jury would buy his worldview and let him walk. Or that the appeals court would do so.

No, that’s not a rational point of view. What else would you expect in a case like this?

Oh, and PS; there are two “l”s in “Cleveland“.

Sometimes the psychological community is just too psychological. Always trying to make up stuff to justify their existence. They make up their own annoying platitudes. He’s dead!!! He can’t hurt them anymore…..for real.

GWB on September 4, 2013 at 9:01 AM

I hope that he repented of his sins before hanging himself.

Truly, I don’t see how the victims will see this as justice denied. The story is well and truly over now. If he had hanged himself before the trial, that would have been justice denied. As it is, he was tried, convicted, sentenced, and the victims got to tell him off in a court of law. His suicide does little more than put the whole ordeal a little further in the past for them.

Obviously, not actually having been in anything like the victims’ shoes, I do think that if I had been one of the victims–I’d just be glad he’s gone. I wouldn’t view his suicide as a slap in my face. But then again, I wasn’t tortured at his hands for years.

Andy in Colorado on September 4, 2013 at 9:09 AM

Dr. Linda Papadopoulos, a U.K.-based psychologist and author, thinks too much, talks even more and says so little. They are free and he is dead, trying to make that a problem is stupid.

Other way around. Marsellus Wallace didn’t rape anyone — Zed raped him.

J.S.K. on September 4, 2013 at 9:20 AM

Ed mentioned it, but this makes sense for Castro. If you acknowledge your guilt and want to die for your crimes, pleading guilty and asking the state to do it would take years. Our country is so conflicted over the death penalty that even a man guilty beyond any reasonable doubt has to be tried and retried.

That may be what Castro intended, but it’s probably going to have the opposite effect for the three young women. As long as Castro was alive, he’d be the center of curiosity and conversation. With his death, Ariel Castro becomes officially and irrevocably part of the past instead of the present. That frees the victims in a very real sense to get back to being themselves, rather than a part of Castro’s story.

I agree, Ed. The psychologist Papadopoulos is wrong about the consequences of his committing suicide.

She added: “He decided his fate, something they were never ever ever able to do for themselves. He had ultimate control. To some extent this was in a way his last slap to their faces — ’I’ve got this over you’.”

This is pure BS. Relatively speaking, this lady is as cruel as Castro as it pertains to the manipulation of the emotions of the people she makes contact with.

I agree that, if you’re going to fight a war, few parameters should be set in advsnce–especially time parameters-giving the enemy a victory by allowing these time parameters to expire.

Here, however, we have a thin-skinned incompetent who wants to go to war over trifles–some dictator called his “red line” bluff.\

As for going to war for “human rights violations” (especially since we are not 100% sure the violations were committed by Assad or by Al Qaeda), in lieu of national security, is insanity.

1 If we pitched cruised missiles into every country which violated human rights, we’d be fighting over 80 wars simultaneously.
2 You may notice that “human rights violators” we pick fights with are small, weak countries incapable of significant retaliation–therefore we do so for political gain and without fear of holocaustic repercussions–or else we’d be equally justified in pitching cruise missiles into China or Russia!!!!

MaiDee on September 4, 2013 at 10:25 AM

It is a testimony to the strength and courage of those three women that they survived over 9 years in captivity.

It is a statement to the weakness and cowardliness of this worthless piece of crap that he didn’t even last 30 days in jail.

I think we can consider this justice rightly served.

pilamaye on September 4, 2013 at 10:25 AM

Anyway, what’s with NBC seeking out and giving a national soapbox for Papadopoulos to highlight her stupidity? Why wasn’t Krause, at the very least, used as the prominent source in the story? Is NBC just trying to stir up a lot more controversy so issue of Castro’s death has legs, or were they just intent on trolling for internet traffic?

Dusty on September 4, 2013 at 10:29 AM

Good riddance.

However, I like what what said above: what if he figured it out and was penitent? I think of a murderer who is actually sorry – what restitution can you do but offer your own life?

But in today’s America, the only people who are killed quickly are children. Rapists and murderers can’t be, even if they want to do the right thing.

I sometimes wonder if the Old school Old Testament law of Moses stuff was really as barbaric as what we have now. It might be better– especially since one feature was if you falsely accused someone they inflicted on you the punishment you were trying to give someone else.

Vanceone on September 4, 2013 at 10:30 AM

Oops wrong thread. Sorry!

MaiDee on September 4, 2013 at 10:32 AM

More happy news: Ohio spends an average of $164.06 per day to incarcerate an inmate. Assuming Castro would have otherwise lived a natural life of 25 more years, this represents a savings to the taxpayers of Ohio of $1,497,047.50.

True, but I was thinking of the aftermath;

Marsellus: What now? Let me tell you what now. I’ma call a coupla hard, pipe-hittin’ n-s, who’ll go to work on the homes here with a pair of pliers and a blow torch. You hear me talkin’, hillbilly boy? I ain’t through with you by a damn sight. I’ma get medieval on your ass.

I suspect the appropriate tools were already missing from the prison workshop, having been “requisitioned” in anticipation of his arrival in GP.
