2013: Ariel Castro, 52, is arrested after three women missing for more than a decade are found alive in his Cleveland, Ohio, home. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus were held against their will until Berry escaped with her 6-year-old daughter and contacted the police. Castro eventually pleaded guilty to 937 criminal counts of rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder as part of a plea bargain and was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole plus 1,000 years. One month into his sentence, he committed suicide by hanging himself with bedsheets in his prison cell.
