CLEVELAND -- Ariel Castro is a "coward."
That label was placed upon the infamous Cleveland kidnapper by Pastor Angel Arroyo.
Arroyo is a member of the Guardian Angels, the all-volunteer group with the role of keeping missing persons cases in the public's mind.

"He didn't even last four months inside the penitentiary, so he's a coward."
Arroyo says he learned the news around 2 a.m. that Castro had killed himself.
"By him taking this choice to end his life, it's brought the media back to not only this street, but to these girls' lives."
Guardian Angels, known for their red berets, started in New York in 1979.
