CLEVELAND -- A son of one of the suspects arrested in the case of three missing women says he saw padlocks in the Seymour Avenue house were the victims were held.

According to Anthony Castro, the locks were on the doors to the attic, basement and garage. His father is Ariel Castro.

Castro tells WKYC's Sara Shookman that he was last there on April 22, but didn't notice anything as he was in the back yard.

"Our family wants justice for the women," he commented. "God bless them."

He added that his family did not want to speak any further to the media until the women have a chance to comment.

Those women -- Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight -- were all found alive Monday after escaping from the home. They had each been held captive for years.

Cleveland's Police Chief Michael McGrath has also reported the women were bound as authorities found ropes and chains inside.

Three brother, Ariel Castro, Pedro Castro and Onil Castro,  have been arrested in the case. Formal charges are expected Wednesday.

Amidst the flurry of accusations Anthony Castro posted a message that some believe shows support for Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus.

 

Monday, Castro's son changed the profile picture on his Facebook page to a picture of a woman, with what appears to be angel wings, looking down from Heaven.

 

The post has several messages of support from Castro's friends, one reading, "She is looking down from heaven with joy that they were finally found that's what she always wanted!!"

 

Anthony Castro did not post any message with the profile picture leaving the meaning up for interpretation.
