addition to the three women and child held captive and tortured in an
Ohio House of Horrors, there may two others that were harmed by the
actions of accused kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro -- his own brothers. Pedro and Onil Castro were originally detained along with him for their suspected involvement. Now, however, it seems they may have known nothing at all.
men -- who are currently in hiding along with other family members --
were released by police, and authorities say there's no evidence they
had anything to do with the abduction or torture of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight. Despite that, however, their lives have been forever altered, and they've been the targets of much hate.
In an interview with CNN, which will air Monday, the men spoke about how they've had rocks thrown through the windows of their homes and have received death threats. They say they're not able to go home and believe that people will always suspect they had some involvement. Pedro said:
couldn't never think of doing anything like that. If I knew that my
brother was doing this ... I would not be, not -- in a minute, I would
call the cops because that ain't right. But yeah, it's going to haunt me
down because people going to think, yeah, Pedro got something to do
with this and Pedro don't have nothing to do with this. If I knew, I would have reported it, brother or no brother.
heartbreaking on so many levels. First to realize that someone you
share blood with could be such a sick, twisted individual, and you had
no clue. But then to have people think you could have anything to do
with it is just unimaginable. I feel for them, and hope that with time
and perhaps more assurances from police that they had no involvement or
knowledge that they can resume their lives as normally as is possible in
the wake of this horrific crime.
If they were in contact with Castro and visited him for any real length of time at his home on many occasions then i'd say I do not believe they had no inkling of something wrong.Three women being held hostage and abused in his home PLUS a child..and they didn't see or hear ANYTHING odd? Not uh don't buy that.
No I could not imagine this with any of my relative's and I have a few who are off the wall but this no.
DH's best friend who shared our home for 3 or 4 years beat an elderly man to death. The man was a friend of the family and he was supposed to be accompanying him on a long road trip.
I still can barely believe it. We hadn't spoken to him for sometime when it happened...his life had taken a turn for the worst in many ways and i was newly pregnant so it was better than we didn't interact with him. Obviously we knew there was something wrong with him but he wasn't a violent person. I was never afraid of him, only of the people he might bring around.
Yes, I could imagine it. One in-law- without a doubt. I do not allow my children near him; he is just OFF. My children feel very uncomfortable around him as well. I do not 'think" he would do anything but also, I would not be too surprised. And another in-law as well does have a secret petty criminal history; non-violent stuff; but she could easily be charged for crap like harassment and stalking. She wouldn't do much other than that. But, yeah- if her name appeared in thepaper, I would not be too surprised either.
