  • CLEVELAND -- Ariel Castro, accused of kidnapping and repeatedly raping three women, was seen walking around his cell naked following a nurse's visit for a psychological evaluation, jail records show.

    Oddly, the sighting occurred just a few hours after Castro had complained that his cell was too cold, the records show.

    That was last Thursday, following his transfer to the Cuyahoga County Jail. Crews would eventually check on the cell's air conditioning unit at 1 p.m. on Friday.

    The jail records provide a detailed, if mostly mundane, account of Castro's movement inside his cell. They are written by corrections officers, who log their observations every 10 minutes because Castro is under suicide watch.

    For the vast majority of time, Castro passes the time by lying on his mat, either sleeping or staring at the empty bunk above him. He brushes his teeth in the mornings and walks around the cell every so often.

    But the records also provide brief glimpses into Castro's routine, his personality and his health.

    For instance, at 1:44 p.m. Sunday, Castro was warned not to use loose strings from his mat to floss his teeth, according to the records. A sergeant later cut the loose strings off so Castro couldn't do it again.

    On another day, officers observed Castro looking into the mirror while drinking his Kool Aid, the log notes.

    And at 9:20 a.m. Sunday, he refused to take a shower because he had a headache.

    Castro is not allowed to receive personal visitors, make telephone calls or receive outside mail.

    But the logs show he's gotten visits from Cleveland Police detectives, from his attorneys, and from the jail nurse, who routinely comes in to check Castro's blood sugar.
