DNA Test Confirm that Ohio Kidnap Suspect Ariel Castro Fathered 6 Year Old Girl Rescued from Cleveland House of Horrors


In what is probably considered the most obvious conclusion of a DNA paternity test ever, it has been confirmed that Ariel Castro is the father of the 6 year old girl who was also rescued from Castro’s House of Horrors earlier this week. Officials also entered Castro’s DNA profile into a national database to see if it links him to other crimes. The profile didn’t match any other Ohio cases, but national results were still pending. Castro has been charged with 4 counts of kidnapping and 3 counts of rape of Amanda Berry, Gina Dejesus and Michelle Knight.  Kidnap victim Amanda Berry is the mother of the six year old girl.


As relatives of the Cleveland kidnapping and rape suspect recounted claims of his unnerving paranoia and violent outbursts, DNA testing confirmed the man accused of holding three women captive for nearly a decade is the father of a 6-year-old girl who also escaped from the house.

Ariel Castro, charged with rape and kidnapping, remained jailed Friday under a suicide watch on $8 million bond while prosecutors weighed more charges, including some that might carry the death penalty. Public defender Kathleen Demetz, who said she is acting as Castro’s adviser while he awaits a full-time attorney, said Friday she can’t speak to his guilt or innocence and said only that she advised him not to talk to reporters.
