(CNN) — Corrections officers looking inside Ariel Castro\’s cell found him with a sheet tied around his neck, his knees bent, his shorts around his ankles, 27 minutes after their last look.
They also found that the convicted kidnapper had apparently done more than kill himself that day, according to a report on Castro\’s death from the Ohio State Highway Patrol. He wrote a note — dated that same day, September 3 — invoking scripture and saying that those who confessed with their heart \”will be saved.\”
\”God loves you,\” Castro wrote in all capital letters, \”for all are sinners, we all fall short of the glory of God. Christ is my saviour and yours!!\”
