CLEVELAND (AP) - A man who owns the Cleveland home where three women who vanished a decade ago were found alive is well-known in the mainly Puerto Rican neighborhood.
Ariel Castro is one of three brothers arrested in the missing-persons case. Neighbors say he played bass guitar in salsa and merengue bands and gave neighborhood children rides on his motorcycle.
They say Castro also joined others at a candlelight vigil to remember two of the missing girls.
Officials say Castro and his brothers, ages 50 to 54, are in custody after a 911 call led them to the house near downtown Cleveland. The three women, who disappeared over several years, were found Monday.
The uncle of one of the women says he played in bands with Castro. He says he's in shock over what's happened.
