Police have yet to charge the three brothers accused in Cleveland’s most high-profile kidnapping case in years.
All three males; Ariel Castro, Onil Castro and Pedro Castro, remain in police custody. Although the usual protocol between the Cleveland Division of Police and the Cleveland Municipal Court is that detectives file charges within 36 hours, Administrative Judge Ronald B. Adrine has extended the charging period in this case to 48 hours, which is within the federal mandate for charging time.
Meantime, more details are emerging about the lives of three women held captive in a west side Cleveland house for years.
According to 19 Action News Reporter Lydia Esparra, Gina DeJesus knew the man suspected of kidnapping her and holding her captive for nearly 10 years.
Family members tell Esparra that Ariel Castro was a relative of DeJesus’ best friend, possibly her father.
He’s also been to at least two vigils for the missing girls.
Amanda Berry and her daughter Jocelyn, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were found in a house on Seymour Avenue Monday afternoon. Berry was heard by a neighbor screaming for help. The neighbor, Charles Ramsey, helped free Berry and a young girl, 6, believed to be Berry’s daughter.
Berry then called 911 begging for help.
