Reaction has been flooding in after news broke of Ariel Castro's death behind bars.
Castro, the man who admitted guilt in the kidnappings of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, killed himself.
Here is a sampling of the comments posted on the WKYC Facebook page:
Tom Geraghty: Those girls did 10 yrs and survived and Castro couldn't even do 6 months.
Shirley Chrz: saves the tax payers feeding and housing him which he did not deserve considering what he put the girls through
Laura Degner: Rest in hell.
Jennifer Schmucker Watson: Coward.
Peter Pate: He did what our justice system wasn't powerful enough to do.
Pamela Centivany Jones: Good! It will save the taxpayers in Ohio a lot of money not having to take care of the scumbag for the rest of his life. I'm sure he wouldn't have lasted long in the prison general population anyway.
Wendy J Pike-Dosela: you can love the person BUT not the sin they commited nd this here is a human with a soul nd is now lost..
Marvin Simpson: he took the easy way out
Teresa Dudich Whittaker: part of me thought he was a coward... he should've finished his sentence but at the same time I'm glad he is no longer a burden on our society.... he actually deserved worse than that!!
Jim Pickering: I felt relieved !!! He needed to die for his crimes
Linda Eames Rogers: GOOD!!!
Carolyn Gamble: Save tax payers some $$$ coward!! He should have done his time
Laurie Szabo: Wow...that didn't take very long...
Michelle Schneider: First thing on my mind...no surprise. I always thought he wouldn't last long either by his own hand or by others.
Carol Barney: YAYYYY!!!!!
Chuck Marshall: Can't say I'm sorry to hear it. I'm glad he was brought to justice first, though.
Charley King: woo hoo my tax dollars wont support him rot in hell, coward!!
