Final report confirms suicide of Ohio kidnapper

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Police have concluded that Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro committed suicide by hanging weeks into a life sentence with no chance for parole.

The final report by the Ohio State Highway Patrol rejects a suggestion that the 53-year-old Castro might have died accidentally while seeking a thrill through a sex act. Prison consultants reached the same conclusion.

The report released Wednesday includes a copy of a note titled "My kids and grandkids" with 12 handwritten names interspersed with hand-drawn hearts, musical notes, flowers and a cross.

The report also includes a copy of a second note with several handwritten Bible quotes.

Castro, who killed himself Sept. 3 in prison, was sentenced to life plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to abducting and imprisoning three women in Cleveland for a decade.
