Castro Letter: 'I'm a sexual predator, I need help'

19 Action News Reporter Scott Taylor is learning much more about Ariel Castro from his own words - a reported suicide note he wrote years ago.

In the letter, Castro claims he treated the three women well and then admits later that he's sick.

The police found a letter inside Castro's house of horrors and investigators believe it was written by Castro in 2004 after he had captured Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. 

Castro allegedly wrote, "I am a sexual predator. I need help."

Castro goes into detail how he lured Knight into his house after meeting her at a dollar store. He chronicles how he lured Berry into his vehicle by offering her a ride. He's surprised how young DeJesus, then 14, really is after locking her up inside his home. He thought she was a lot older.

He writes, "They are here against their will because they made a mistake of getting in a car with a total stranger."

Castro talks about his children and about killing himself and giving all the money he's saved to his victims.

After he abducted DeJesus he said, "I don't know why I kept looking for another. I already had two in my possession."
