Few tears shed for US rapist Castro after apparent suicide
CHICAGO (AFP) - Few tears have been shed over the apparent suicide of Ariel Castro, who endured just a month in prison before ending his life but had held three women as sex slaves for a decade.
At least one psychologist said those three women, with Castro dead, are now being denied a sense of justice, as he got to choose his fate whereas they did not.
Castro, 53, was found hanged on Tuesday in the Ohio prison where he was serving a life sentence.
It was an abrupt ending to a sordid case that shocked the United States and the world with revelations of depravity and brutality carried out in an ordinary Cleveland home.
