Editor’s note: This post has been corrected for clarification. Current reporting is not clear on whether investigators are searching for the remains of babies miscarried due to physical abuse or babies killed by medical or chemical abortions.


Earlier today, WKYC’s Tom Meyer reported that the three women held prisoner for a decade in a Cleveland home had gotten pregnant as a result of being raped by their captors. As many as five unborn babies died after the women were beaten.

Now, authorities are reportedly combing the captors’ yard for bodies of “aborted babies.”



Investigators say no human remains were discovered during a search of the property at 2207 Seymour.

    Insane, sick fucks.

    I’m willing to bet they took Planned Parenthood’s advice and flushed them down the toilet.

    • walterc

      That was my thinking. I’ll be surprised if they find any evidence of aborted babies. After all this isn’t a PP funded clinic we’re talking about here.

        It’s a city sewer system, NO septic tanks……

    • Jeremy

      Wouldn’t surprise me they love to do that.

  • Rob

    I expect weeks of hearing how this will somehow become the norm if abortion is curtailed even the slightest.
    Heaven forbid suggesting one grow up, mature, and be financially stable for the result of sexual reproduction before engaging in… you know, sexual reproduction.
    Still. I can already hear them chomping at the bit for the narrative.

  • Squirrel!

    If only they’d had a Kermit to go to. (Sarcasm) I have already considered how a Dr. like that cold possibly benefit the captors in a situation like this. Abominable!

    • kindamara

      Who says they even saw a doctor??????

      • Squirrel!

        I didn’t. I doubt they did at all. My point is that doctors like Gosnell would be awfully convenient for kidnapper/pedophiles/sex traffickers (whatever these guys were doing). I am pretty confident that’s not what happened here but is my own theory when seeing this story made me think of Gosnell. These guys needed to hide what they had going on and so did Gosnell so in my hypothetical scenario no one would tell on anyone.

        • kindamara

          Gotcha … Quiet cover up or even a midwife/wife. Reminds me of the Dugard case. People are despicable … Gosnell is the scum of the magma of the earth.

          • Squirrel!

            Though it sounds like they were beaten into miscarriage. Terribly sad story.

          • kindamara

            These poor young women. I just hate to imagine what these “things” did to them. They will have a very tough recovery, if they even recover from this evil. Rape, imho, is one of the worst human violations.,

          • Squirrel!

            As a woman, it is my biggest fear. Can’t begin to imagine being held captive for any amount of time & having it happen daily and then the rest of it…

        • http://twitter.com/R_U_Srs Seriously?

          Liveaction.org has already proven your theory to be correct, with under covers going into PP with sex-trafficking and minor cases.

          Kermit Gosnell committing abortions is only news because he was arrested. Most are silently cheering that jury on to vote him “innocent” – evidently, so is the press.

          • Squirrel!

            I figure it’s happening somewhere and PP is not immune.

  • rm1evo

    If I was related to any of these girls. These 3 men will never see the light of day.

  • drschuetz

    I’ve got 1 question. If the bodies of “aborted” babies are found, will it be murder, or just getting rid of a little problem?

    • Bud-Kathy Jones

      Very good question.

  • Matthew Nelson

    These three dogs are the poster boys for capital punishment for non-homicide crimes.

    • Trish Coate

      This is homicide.

      • Matthew Nelson

        true enough in the case of the unborn children, but for the abductions alone they deserve to be hanged or worse. Admittedly I am unfamiliar with the law in Ohio about fetal homicide.

  • Dawn

    This is disgusting what these women have gone through. this is not the place to discuss your views on abortion. They are not discussing theirs. You should be praying for these women and babies, not making stupid remarks like this was their choice.

    • sardiverdave

      That’s sorta the point.

      Not their choice = murder.

      Their choice = not murder?

      • Elena0412

        I’ve often said that a human is a human only if his mother wants him. Progressive logic.

    • robcrawford2

      ” They are not discussing theirs. ”

      That’s right. They’re just enslaving women and forcing them to have them.

      Not talking, just doing.

      • Dawn

        The reporters used that word. I meant the women that were freed from those monsters. take your political views to a political forum.

        • Squirrel!

          It’s awful what has happened to these 3 ladies since they were children (at least 2 of them). It seems at least one of them was beaten until she miscarried and possible other beatings until miscarriage or maybe old school abortion methods done to them. No one knows at this point. Nonetheless, all aborted pregnancies by one method or another. Don’t know if you’ve noticed but topics on Twitchy are mostly political, so I’d say this actually is a political forum. We have thoughts about this & we’re sharing them… essentially what the comment section is for if that’s okay with you. I understand where you’re coming from, but this subject does touch on our thoughts regarding abortion.

          • Dawn

            That is fine and I was expressing mine. I think it is callous to speak that way when they have barely left the situation. I respect the opinions of others, respect mine. You do not agree with abortion that is fine that is your opinion. but it just seemed like some people could not wait to find a reason to put theirs out there without thinking of the women first. As for this being political I just joined today so cut me some slack there. I felt compelled to say something.

          • Squirrel!

            Totally respect yours & said I understand where you’re coming from. I think this Gosnell business is fresh on everyone’s minds and now this atrocity. For me personally (and obviously others), there is a relevance.

    • tops116

      You mean you shouldn’t use a tragedy to push your own viewpoints? Odd how that wasn’t the prevailing attitude when Sandy Hook went down. And as I recall, liberals were all-too quick to blame the Boston Bombing on the Tea Party before they had any details.

  • grais

    Anyone else wonder if they’re illegals?

    • robcrawford2

      Been wondering since I heard the last name. Unfair, but the complete lack of mention of it in the news makes me wonder.

      • redheadgrl

        me, too.

      • Roto

        “the complete lack of mention of it in the news” is S.O.P.

    • MWBRI

      Probably not. I think I saw a Puerto Rican flag on their house. Westside inner city Cleveland has significant PR population.

    • Right Wired

      Obama voters, at the very least.

      • Jeremy

        yeah especially if the babies in the backyard ends up being true it shows that they think like Obama on abortion.

  • $29561723

    The media must be EXTREMELY confused as to whether they should cover this.

  • John

    Well since abortion isn’t a crime and not considered “murder”, then he should get off scott free!! If they charge him with murder because they find aborted babies, then we KNOW the left and the media is so full of it!!

    • KayGee

      I was not aware that the media was capable of pressing charges.

      • tops116

        Well, the media certainly seemed to think they were capable when they tried to blame the Tea Party for the Boston Bombing.

  • radicallyalyssa

    This makes me sick…

  • Dane Gunderson

    Democrats immediately move to protect ‘abortion by beating’ as Republicans again threaten a woman’s right to choose

    • lonestar

      I guess they’ll also extend it to cover a man’s right to choose. After all, it is his sperm making up half that collection of cells.

  • LuCha

    OH my God. Those poor girls. I guess the little one survived. Animals.

    • Lakerfanalways

      my guess is that the scum bag wanted only girls..so he killed the ones who were boys since his sexual perversion is only for girls

      • Guest

        Wow, I had not even considered that.

    • Squirrel!

      I hope the 6 year old who did survive was still untouched by these monsters!

  • Cruz2016!!!

    When are the civilized in this country going to start sending these uncivilized perverted pedophiles to a deserted island when they can abuse each other..enough of this!!

  • http://classicalvalues.com/ TallDave

    But did they belong to the Tea Party?

    • Cruz2016!!!

      Look at them…of course they’re Obama supporters!

      • lonestar

        This is in the same district where Romney did NOT get even 1 single vote in 2012.

  • Gloria Wandrous

    I hope they fry.

  • Gordon Waite

    I would pay money to be allowed to put a bullet through the craniums of all three of these men!

  • Right Wired

    Kermit Gosnell would approve.

  • © Sponge

    Sad thing is, this is likely not the only current situation like this going on right now.

  • detroit19

    Death penalty immediately for these sub-human wastes of breath…

  • TJ

    Why does it have to be “aborted babies” if a baby was born in the basement without a doctor or formula they would not have lasted long. If they where born alive premature then died a short time later it still would not be called an aborted but murdered as with medical help they could and would survive. It would be horror if they killed the boys outright but kept and feed the only girl for 6 years.

    • Squirrel!

      Good point.

  • JoeCollins

    Put me on this jury.

  • MontanaGal


  • Jeremy

    They should take these three scumbags line them up and shoot them it’s all they deserve.

  • DizzyMissL

    Can we add murder to the charges?

  • tops116

    Yikes, just yikes.

  • Trish Coate

    Murder 1 – five counts.

  • Roto

    – These Castro brothers were given an extension from 36 hrs to 48 hrs to be charged
    – The Boston terrorist was read his rights by an Obama judge in 18 hrs.

  • john mason

    Do they really think the bodies would still be there? He probably had his crazy brothers remove all evidence, then paid these two alcoholics a bottle a tequila as payment. Who removed all the human sewage that had to naturally occur from that house over the last ten years. It didn’t just disappear! How and where was the laundry done for these three women? Was he a frequent purchaser of women’s clothing online? What company delivered to the home?

  • Guest

    Where did Ariel learn to torture like this? Was this method used on him and his brothers while Mom looked out the window at nothing.
    You would think after ten long sadistic years, he would, what? “run out of crazy “or something, be depleted of the high rage it would take to keep this going.
