On Friday evening, a day after the prosecutor for the Ohio kidnapping investigation revealed he'd be seeking murder charges for accused abductor Ariel Castro, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Martin Savidge to dig deeper into the man accused of kidnapping and raping multiple women over a 10 year span.
An Ohio native, the CNN reporter spent the day crafting an in-depth account of the 52-year-old Cleveland man who emigrated from Puerto Rico when he was six:
"Relatives say Ariel was raised by his mother and didn't get along with his father," reported Savidge. "He dropped out of school in the tenth grade."
A self-taught musician, Castro exhibited different personalities, exuberant on stage, timid when off.
However, Savidge learned of a third side:
"But he could be incredibly violent say court documents ... in 2005 Castro was accused of savagely beating his wife breaking her ribs, her nose, dislocating her shoulders and triggering a blood clot on the brain while threatening to kill her and her daughter."
Despite such charges, neither neighbors nor family members had any idea what Castro was capable of.
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview as Castro's daughter, amongst others, reveal their reaction after learning of the heinous crimes he's accused of committing.
