DeJesus on suspected captor and friend: "He seemed like a normal guy to me"

On the backdrop of a remarkable story in Cleveland, Ohio, where three rescued women were reunited with their families after being abducted and held captive, "Piers Morgan Live" spoke to Tito DeJesus who was a friend to the suspected abductor Ariel Castro.

"It was a shock to me," said DeJesus, upon learning of Castro's alleged crime. "I was dumbfounded. I was in shock. I couldn't talk. My heart started beating really really fast, I just couldn't believe it."

"He seemed like a normal guy to me. I've known him for 20 years," said DeJesus. "Never gave any bad vibes."

However DeJesus also noted that Castro "never spoke about his personal life." "Some guys just don't like to mix their personal life with business," said DeJesus.

Watch the clip, and listen to the rest of Castro's interview, as "Piers Morgan Live" continues to follow this fascinating story.

    How many more times are we going to find abducted people being held captive within miles from where they lived. Maybe we should pull all the old abduction cases and search the homes within a five mile radius. I'm thrilled for those young women, but my heart breaks for the ones that may still be locked up some where. God bless them all!

    Be an idea to go through cold cases,Jana,and I hope this happens;as for searching bound to be a lot of people would
    refuse to let the police look around,and they'd need a warrant,probably lots.Problems there...

    "I was dumbfounded. I was in shock. I couldn't talk. My heart started beating really really fast, I just couldn't believe it." Just a
    normal guy? It's crazy how nobody could see how sick he was.
