NEW DETAILS: Who Is Suspected Kidnapper Ariel Castro?

Neighbors say he was a loner, always went into his house through the back door.

As seen on Fox and Friends

Three women, all kidnapped separately in 2003 and 2004, have been found alive. They had apparently been held captive inside a Cleveland house.

Ainsley Earhardt brought us the latest details on the suspected kidnapper, 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who had been working as a bus driver until last November. He was arrested on a domestic violence charge in 1992, but the charge was reduced to disorderly conduct and he pleaded guilty.

Neighbors described him as a loner, who always entered his house through the back door. The front windows of his house were boarded up, but there were other houses on the street with boarded windows as well.

In a strange twist, Castro's son actually wrote about the disappearance of Gina DeJesus in 2004 for his college newspaper while studying journalism at Bowling Green University. The main suspect's two brothers are also under arrest in connection with the case.
