Disturbing Letter Found in Castro Home

Ariel Castro, who is being held on $8 million bail after being charged with multiple counts of kidnapping and rape, appears to have written a chilling confession back in 2004. Reporters for Channel 19 Action News have posted excerpts from the letter, which police found while searching the house where Castro allegedly imprisoned three women for a decade. In the letter Castro admits that β€œI am a sexual predator” and that he needs help. He also wonders why he kidnapped a third woman when he β€œalready had 2 in my possession.” The letter is reportedly a suicide note, with Castro saying he wanted to kill himself and give his money to his captives. He also blamed his victims, saying they β€œmade the mistake of getting in a car with a total stranger.”
