According to Ohio Prison officials two guards have been placed on paid administrative leave while authorities investigate the death of Ariel Castro.

The guards on leave were in charge of the housing unit Castro was assigned to when he committed suicide.

Castro was housed at the Correctional Reception Center in Orient when he was found hanging in his cell September 3. He had been there one month. 

The convicted kidnapper and rapist was serving a life sentence, plus 1,000 years, for kidnapping and sexually assaulting Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus while holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue house for over a decade.
