* Castro’s son – also named Ariel who now goes by ‘Anthony’ – penned an article for the Cleveland Plain Press about the disappearance of Miss DeJesus back in 2004. Castro’s son brings another strange twist to already bizarre story that has spanned more than a decade and shook Cleveland’s west side residents to their core. WKYC’s Sara Shookman uncovered an article written in 2004. It was about the disappearance of Gina DeJesus. The author of the article was Ariel Castro. After some investigation WKYC learned that the author was the son of the man arrested Monday in connection with the three women who were rescued from the home. Ariel “Anthony” Castro, 31, talked to Sara Shookman tonight, saying “This is beyond comprehension…I’m truly stunned right now.” Anthony Castro said he was a journalism student at Bowling Green State University when he wrote the article in 2004.  Chuck Hoven, editor of the Plain Press, now and at that time in 2004, confirmed that Castro was a college student, writing the story on a class assignment.
