Home of Cleveland Kidnapping, Rape Suspect Boarded Up, Surrounded by Security Fence

Former school bus driver charged with kidnapping three women and raping and holding them captive for 10 years


An imposing, 10-foot privacy fence has been erected around the home of a Cleveland rape and kidnapping suspect charged with holding three women captive for about a decade.

And the home of Ariel Castro, where the windows had been blocked off from the inside and doors double- and triple-padlocked, has been boarded up.
