SOUNDS RIGHT: Ariel Castro ‘died of auto erotic asphyxiation’ and NOT suicide

Ohio officials suggest in a new report it’s possible Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro may have died of auto-erotic asphyxiation, not suicide.

A report from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction says Castro’s pants and underwear were pulled down to his ankles when he was found.

It also says Castro did not leave a suicide note and ‘multiple levels of assessment’ did not find tendency toward suicide.

The state forwarded those facts to police to consider the possibility of auto-erotic asphyxiation, whereby individuals achieve sexual satisfaction by briefly choking themselves into near unconsciousness.

The report also says two prison guards falsified logs documenting their observation of Castro in the hours before he killed himself.

The report says video indicates no checks were done on Castro at least eight times before he died.

Earlier details about his death, which was originally believed to be a suicide, revealed that he had a handwritten list of Bible verses and the names of all of his children and grandchildren.

A Bible open to the book of John was also found when prison guards discovered his lifeless body hanging from a hinge from his cell window using a bedsheet.

Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak said she’s awaiting toxicology results before issuing a final report on Castro’s September 3 suicide. The preliminary notes indicate he suffered from hardening of the arteries.

The significance of why he had the Book of John open at the time of his death is unknown, but some of the more prominent stories told in that section of the Bible include descriptions of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
