CLEVELAND-- Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty issued the following statement on the suicide of Ariel Castro.
"These degenerate molesters are cowards. They con and capture vulnerable children. This man couldn't take, for even a month, a small portion of what he had dished out for more than a decade.
"Let this be a message to other child kidnappers. There will be a heavy price to pay when you are caught. You won't enjoy the captive side of the bars."
McGinty declined to speak on camera.
Attorneys representing Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight all say the women will have no comment on Castro's death at this time.
