DNA Confirms Castro Is Girl's Father

Preliminary DNA tests have confirmed that a kidnap and rape suspect in Ohio is the father of a six-year-old girl rescued from his home along with her mother and two other women.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office confirmed Ariel Castro’s paternity in a news release on Friday.

Mr DeWine said a sample of Castro’s DNA was taken on Thursday and forensic scientists worked through the night on the case.

The girl is the daughter of Amanda Berry, who authorities say was held for about a decade in Castro’s house in Cleveland along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.
