The man who held three women captive in his home for nearly a decade before one escaped has been found dead and is believed to have committed suicide, according to The Associated Press.



The AP reports Ariel Castro, 53, was found hanging in his cell around 9:20 p.m. Tuesday at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient.

He was in protective custody because of the notoriety of his case, meaning he was checked every 30 minutes, but was not on suicide watch, according to the AP.
