MISSING WOMEN FOUND-SUICIDE
Coroner's formal report on Cleveland kidnapper rules death a suicide after prison hanging

A coroner's final report confirms Cleveland kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro died by hanging himself in his prison cell.
The report made available Monday says no drugs were found in Castro's system.
A preliminary coroner's report last month said the 53-year-old Castro hanged himself by attaching a sheet to a window hinge in his prison cell at the Correctional Reception Center outside Columbus.
Castro was serving a life sentence after pleading guilty to imprisoning three women in his Cleveland home for a decade and repeatedly raping and beating them. He was arrested after the women escaped May 6.
