Ed Gallek on reports behavorial "oddities" from Ariel Castro in jail: "Deputies noted they saw this guy walking around his cell naked"

As new revelations in the Ohio kidnapping investigation emerge, including various methods Ariel Castro used to hide his actions from his own family, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed WOIO reporter Ed Gallek back to the program.

Having been covering the story since its inception, the Cleveland-based journalist detailed the recent movements of the man accused of raping and holding three women captive for roughly a decade:

"Since this guy [Castro] is under suicide watch, jailers are logging everything he does every ten minutes," reported Gallek, speaking live with Piers Morgan from Ohio. "And what we're noticing, some real oddities."

Holding a list of the 52-year-old's activities, Gallek shared specifics:

"At one point deputies noted they saw this guy walking around in his cell naked," said the guest. "And then another time – this is really bizarre – deputies saw him trying to floss his teeth with strings from a mat."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Gallek revealed some background information on Castro, including the fact that in 2005 he lied under oath during a court case, claiming he "lived alone" in the house, despite holding the three women as prisoners for nearly ten years.

    Piers Morgan SHAME ON YOU ! Your coverage on the GOSNELL Murder of babies born after an abortion was abominable!!! You call yourself a CATHOLIC – where did you receive your catechism training? What do you teach your 4 children? You failed to do your journalist job when you did not call Gloria Alred out on her failure to address the babies that Gosnell killed. Not ONCE did Alred address the death of those children and YOU let her get away with it. You failed to invite a pro-life point of view on your show. You were not fair or balanced in your coverage of the Gosnell case. I realize that your strings are pulled by those who pay your paycheck BUT you failed to honor your role as a journalist to represent BOTH sides of the issue. Time-wise you also failed to give this topic the air time it deserved. Please do you viewers a favor and invite Lila Rose of Live Action or Mary Spaulding Balch, the National Right to Life Committee's director of state legislation. Piers thank you for reading and responding to this viewer’s comment.

      Dear Sally,

      Noticed your same post on the other page,and you're obviously very determined,good for you,unlike the Pennsylvania
      authorities:15 YEARS that horrendous practice was unchecked and unmonitored–unacceptable,and he makes hay
      whilst the sun shines in wretched murderous conditions because of it.

      A few weeks ago I came across images of aborted fetuses on Twitter with one photo in particular showing a little girl
      (able to see genitalia)with a crucifying expression on her face like she'd just been slaughtered probably because she
      had;reading the sordid details on that creature–and they can stick him in a chair and fry him for all I care–last night I
      noted there was talk of those poor kids being wrapped in bags and stored haphazardly in freezers:same as the photos. I presume that was a room of Gosnell's,but I'm not quite sure.The site address is @DawnMichael,and she's a mother of four,blonde,and gun devotee.Ring a bell,anyone?I suspect the details and photos are one and the same(I tried tweeting her to ask more but didn't get a response),and I will never forget either.

      I think of them too,Sally.(Recognize your name,thanks for posting again,and I'm just as angry–I DON'T KNOW WHAT

      Aside from the reprehensible cutting of spinal cords–and it wasn't just him doing it either,was it?–some of the images on Dawn's site show square-like holes near the napes of their neck,further evidence of barbarism.

      (Brace yourself if you're gonna look at them,in the photo gallery section on the left.)

      As for Piers,Sally,I can't watch the show so can't comment on it directly[Edinburgh,UK],but feel free to tell me more as
      I'm as outraged as you ought to be,abortion affecting my family too.

      Finally,apologies to any Jewish readers for mentioning this name,but he reminds me on Josef Mengele,only difference
      being HE gave us the slip,a mosaic of him to this day on the gable end of a house in Paraguay which should have a big
      fence round it,and I'll hammer the posts in after we've sent Gosnell there in a box.
