Coroner says Ariel Castro’s death was definitely not an accident



Convicted kidnapper Ariel Castro killed himself, the Ohio medical examiner who conducted his autopsy says, disputing assertions that the convicted kidnapper and rapist may have died accidentally.

Coroner Jan Gorniak had harsh words for Ohio corrections officials for raising the possibility in a report Thursday that Castro’s death may have been the accidental result of auto-erotic asphyxiation. That involves depriving the brain of oxygen by controlled strangulation to intensify a sexual experience.

“I did the autopsy myself. I saw the ligature. I saw the pictures of the cell,” she said. “It was a suicide.”

The state report released Thursday, meanwhile, also found that prison guards falsified logs and did not check on Castro as often as they should have. They appeared to have also falsified “the post log book for their rounds,” according to the report, from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
