Guardian Angel: Cleveland kidnapper, rapist Ariel Castro forces families to relive ordeal with death

CLEVELAND - A Guardian Angel is calling Ariel Castro's actions cowardly Wednesday morning, hours after the convicted kidnapper and rapist was found hanged in a prison cell.

Angel Arroyo, who knows the family of Gina DeJesus, spoke to NewsChannel5's Kristin Byrne about how he reacted to Castro's death.

"They made a deal so he could spend the rest of his life in jail. He couldn't even last 10 years, as long as he held these girls," Arroyo said.

Arroyo said he and Gina DeJesus' father Felix were at a human trafficking event a couple of weeks ago and Castro's action is a step backward.

"Once the case was over, I'm pretty sure they started to move forward. Unfortunately by him taking this choice, again thinking about his self, now it's bringing national attention toward these families," Arroyo said. "Now they have to relive this."
