There is a possibility that Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro died not because he committed suicide but possibly due to auto-erotic asphyxiation. In plain language, that means masturbating himself to death.
Kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro was found dead in his prison cell after he hanged himself with a sheet. The 53-year-old was serving a life sentence without parole plus 1,000 years after admitting to 937 counts of rape, kidnapping and murder. Castro kidnapped three women between 2002 and 2007 and held them captive in the basement of his Cleveland home.

Among the reasons cited by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction report were that Mr Castro's pants and underwear were pulled down to his ankle when he was found on Sept 3, 2013 and he did not leave a suicide note.
Multiple levels of assessment likewise failed to find a tendency toward suicide.
The report also stated that two prison guards made false entries on their logs that they observed Mr Castro hours before he allegedly committed suicide, but no checks were done at least eight times, video indicates.
Auto-erotic asphyxiation is a masturbation technique that involves self-strangulation by cutting off oxygen supply to the brain for intensified orgasms during sex or while jacking off.
Mr Castro pleaded guilty to 1,000 counts of kidnapping, rape. Aggravated murder and other charges and was meted a life sentence without parole, plus 1,000 years, but he actually served only four weeks.
