CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland's top brass are reacting to the jailhouse suicide of convicted kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro.

Castro, 53, was found hanging in his cell at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient, Pickaway County, Ohio on Tuesday.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson released the following statement regarding Castro's death:

"Our focus remains on the well-being of the survivors of Seymour Avenue. It is our sincere hope that they will continue to heal and recover. I ask the community to continue to respect the privacy of the survivors so that they can move forward with their lives."

Statement from Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty on the suicide of Ariel Castro:

"These degenerate molesters are cowards. They con and capture vulnerable children. This man couldn't take, for even a month, a small portion of what he had dished out for more than a decade.

 

"Let this be a message to other child kidnappers: There will be a heavy price to pay when you are caught. You won't enjoy the captive side of the bars."
