London: The family of the man who abducted and raped three women in his Cleveland home for roughly a decade has disowned him, saying he must suffer the consequences for his crimes.
Ariel Castro’s daughter, Angie, 29, described him as ‘the most evil, vile, demonic criminal,’ adding ‘he that he is dead for her’.
Castro’s another daughter, 22-year-old Arlene, vowed never to see him again.
According to the Mirror, Angie said she used to call him ‘daddy’ believing he was a ‘friendly, caring, doting man’, but learning of his crimes this week she was broken.
Arlene said in a TV interview he must “suffer the consequences” for his crimes.
Authorities confirmed Castro, 52, was the father of captive Amanda Berry’s six-year-old daughter Jocelyn, born in his dungeon.
The “bubbly” little girl has been given counselling since being rescued on Monday with her mum, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus.
Castro has been accused of holding Gina, 23, Amanda, 27, and Michelle, 32, and Jocelyn hostage for up to 10 years in a dungeon at his Cleveland home.
But prosecutors are now reportedly considering charging him for aggravated murder over allegations he caused one of his victims to have five miscarriages, which could lead to death penalty.
