Ariel Castro’s Brother: ‘If I Knew About It, I Would Have Reported It’
Authorities conclude that Ariel Castro’s two brothers were not involved in the kidnappings or in any other illegal activity concerning the treatment of the three women who were held hostage.
“If I knew, I would have reported it, brother or no brother,” Pedro Castro told CNN’s Michael Savage…
[Ariel Castro’s] two brothers, Pedro and Onil Castro, were detained last week after Ariel Castro was arrested, but police released the pair a few days later, saying there was no evidence that either brother — neither of whom lived at Ariel Castro’s home — were involved in any crimes against the women or Berry’s daughter.
The two men tell CNN they worry people will always believe they played a role in the crimes and say their friends cannot fathom them being involved.
“And the people out there that know me, they know that Onil Castro is not that person and has nothing to do with that. Would never even think of something like that,” Onil said, referring to the allegations against his brother Ariel.
“I was a very liked person, individual. I’ve never had any enemies. No reason for anybody to think that I would ever do something like that. It’s a shock to all my friends. They couldn’t believe it,” he added.
