Castro's son wants prison diary, other items

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The son of Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro wants his father's prison diary and other property left behind in his cell after he killed himself.

Ariel Anthony Castro tells The Columbus Dispatch that he's haunted by questions about his father's suicide in prison Sept. 3.

The 32-year-old Castro says he's unhappy with information contained in two reports released this week suggesting his father might have been mistreated or neglected by prison employees.

The younger Castro says he didn't know about the prison diary and other personal items until a consultants' report was released Tuesday by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.

The 53-year-old Ariel Castro was sentenced to life plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to abducting and imprisoning three women in Cleveland for a decade.
