The prime suspect in the astonishing kidnapping case of three women held captive for ten years has been taken into custody – as well as two of his own brothers. Ariel Castro, 52, of Cleveland, Ohio was arrested on Monday after one of the alleged victims escaped his home and called police. He was a school bus driver in the Cleveland area, according to reports. Only Ariel Castro lived at the home. The brothers lived elsewhere, police told reporters. Castro’s Facebook page depicts a man with a passion for motorcycles and the bass guitar. His last post to the social networking site on May 2 says: ‘Miracles really do happen, God is good :)’ Cleveland’s police chief said on Monday night that the victims were tied up in the house where they were found and had been there since they disappeared. The county prosecutor joined dozens of police officers and sheriff’s deputies at the scene as they began searching the house late Monday.
