With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Demolition Crews Prepare To Raze Castro’s Home
The Cleveland house where three women were imprisoned and raped for about a decade will be torn down this week.
The electricity was turned off to Ariel Castro’s Seymour Avenue home on Monday after his family and friends removed personal items from it, including photographs and musical instruments.
The Cuyahoga Land Bank acquired the home last week plans to demolish it beginning Wednesday.
A contractor is tearing down the home at no cost. Plans for what will replace the house on the site haven’t been made public.
The 53-year-old Castro was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years after pleading guilty to hundreds of charges related to the kidnapping and rapes of the women.
