Ariel Castro is the father of the six year old girl that was found in his home on Seymour Avenue on Cleveland's west side.

Ohio Attorney General, Mike DeWine, confirmed this today through DNA testing.

Castro's DNA did not match any other Ohio cases, but the FBI is awaiting results of any national cases.

Also, Friday the FBI says it has concluded its investigation for now at Castro's home on Seymour for now. No human remains were recovered.

Castro was arraigned Thursday for rape and kidnapping. His bond is set for $8 million.

Thursday WKYC's Investigative Reporter, Tom Meyer, learned more about what Ariel Castro told police during an interrogation.

He told police he was addicted to sex and couldn't control his impulses.

Castro called himself "cold blooded." Read more of about the police questioning here.

Cleveland Police are reminding everyone that the victims in this case have asked for privacy.

Thursday police even offered to accept gifts and cards on behalf of the families.

Police said "The outpouring of community support surrounding the Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus homecoming is greatly appreciated."

"In order to give the girls their privacy and time to heal, the Cleveland Division of Police is asking that anyone wishing to provide gifts or cards to the girls refrain from doing so at their homes."

"Instead, cards and gifts for Amanda Berry, excluding cash, can be dropped off at the First District located at 3895 West 130th Street in Cleveland." (READ MORE)
