(May 08, 2013) Did Ariel Castro kidnap kids for the CIA?
Ariel Castro said he worked for the CIA.
Reuters reports "One childhood friend said a music session with Castro, who was born in Puerto Rico, suddenly turned bizarre.
"'Ariel was in my garage probably five or six years ago. We were recording a song, an idea we had - a little hard rock with some Latin,' said Joe Popow, 45, a father of six who said he has known the Castro brothers since childhood.
"'And - you're going to laugh - he said he was in the CIA. And I don't know if he was joking or not, but it's the way he said it, how serious he said it. I didn't know what he was capable of. That just put me on defense, and I just started stepping away,' Popow said."
Between 2002 and 2004, in Cleveland Ohio, three girls were kidnapped.
The three girls were held prisoner for ten years - at 2207 Seymour Avenue.
