The brothers of accused kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro have broken their public silence, giving CNN what's billed as an exclusive sit-down interview about the case.
Pedro, 54, and Onil Casto, 50, told CNN's Martin Savidge that they had no knowledge of their 52-year-old brother's alleged crimes.
"It’s going to haunt me down because people going to think, 'Yeah, Pedro got something to do with this,'" Pedro Castro said in an excerpt from the interview released Sunday. "And Pedro don’t have nothing to do with this. If I knew, I would have reported it—brother or no brother.”
The full interview with the brothers will air Monday, one week after three women—Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry, and Gina DeJesus—were freed from Ariel Castro's west Cleveland home where they were beaten and raped over a decade of captivity, police say. A six-year-old girl, believed to be Berry and Ariel Castro's, was also rescued.
The women had several miscarriages during their captivity, police said.
