State Investigators: DNA Shows Castro Fathered Girl
State investigators says DNA testing confirms the man charged with kidnapping and raping three women he held captive for a decade is the father of a six-year-old girl found inside the home.
The Ohio Attorney Generalâ€™s Office says forensic scientists worked through the night to confirm Ariel Castro fathered the six-year-old girl born in captivity.
Investigators also say Castroâ€™s DNA did NOT match any samples in a statewide database.
Results from a comparison to nationwide DNA samples are pending.
