Ariel Castro (pictured) was found hanging in his cell Tuesday. The convicted kidnapper and rapist of Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus was 52 years old.
Ariel Castro was being held at the Correction Reception Center in Orient, OH in Pickaway County.
Castro's death is being investigated by Ohio State Police and the Department of Corrections.
He had held the three girls captive for over a decade.
After being outed in July by a 911 call by a neighbor, Castro was sentenced August 1 to life in prison, plus 1,000 years for kidnap and sexual assault.
