DNA Shows Ohio Kidnapping Suspect Fathered Girl

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Details are emerging about the evidence in the case of a Cleveland man accused of holding three women captive for a decade.
    
A prosecutor says kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro is the father of a 6-year-old girl who escaped from Castro's house along with the women, one of them her mother.
    
The FBI says no human remains are among more than 200 pieces of evidence collected from the house. A police statement says one of the women said she was impregnated at least five times but was starved and beaten until she miscarried.
    
That woman, Michelle Knight, was released from a hospital Friday. She issued a statement expressing gratitude for public support and requesting that her privacy be respected.
    
Castro remains on suicide watch and is being held on $8 million bail. Family members have described him in interviews as a "monster" that frequently beat the mother of his children.
    
There is one positive development from the case. The FBI says the publicity about the rescue has generated new tips in separate cases involving a 14-year-old girl and 18-year-old woman who disappeared years ago in the same area.
