CLEVELAND — An imposing, 10-foot privacy fence has been erected around the home of a Cleveland rape and kidnapping suspect charged with holding three women captive for about a decade.
And the home of Ariel Castro, where the windows had been blocked off from the inside and doors double- and triple-padlocked, has been boarded up.
Patrols cars were still parked across the entrances to the block Monday to keep away drive-by onlookers.
The run-down house has become a two-story piece of evidence in the abduction and imprisonment case of the three women.
Councilman Brian Cummins says threats to burn down the house have been circulating on city streets.
