CLEVELAND (CBSDFW.COM) — Eddie Castro, speaking to KRLD’s Joe Gomez, says he is the cousin of 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who has been arrested in the kidnapping of three women in Cleveland.
The women, who police believe were held captive for nearly a decade, were discovered Monday in a home just south of downtown. Three men, all brothers, were arrested in connection with the kidnappings.
Eddie says he was born and raised in the home where police found the girls, and that his father eventually sold the house to Ariel. He says the home wasn’t that big, so news of his cousins’ arrest is shocking.
