CLEVELAND - The 6-year-old girl born in captivity to kidnapping victim Amanda Berry is the daughter of kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Friday.
Preliminary DNA test results confirm Castro's paternity, DeWine said in a press release.
The state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation worked through the night to process a sample of Castro's DNA received late Thursday afternoon, DeWine said. The DNA was compared to other profiles in the state's database, but did not match any other Ohio cases. The FBI will now run the sample through its database to determine if it matches any national cases, DeWine said.
Details are also beginning to leak from the questioning of suspect Ariel Castro, of what may have fueled his desire to allegedly kidnap and rape three women and hold them captive for nearly 10 years.
A source inside the investigation said Castro told police he was 'cold blooded', and was able to describe how he picked his victims up and even what they were wearing at the time of their abductions.
The source said Castro claimed he is addicted to sex, and couldn't control his impulses. His demeanor during the interrogation was described as cocky, attempting to control the direction and tenor of the interview the way he controlled his three captives all those years.
Castro is being held on $8 million bond, $2 million for each of his three victims and one daughter. He is currently under suicide watch while prosecutors consider pursuing the death penalty.
