DNA Results Back on Ariel Castro

CLEVELAND -- (Kellie Hanna)  Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine today announced the preliminary results of DNA testing performed in connection with Cleveland kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro.

The Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) received a sample of Castro's DNA late yesterday afternoon, and forensic scientists worked throughout the night to confirm that Castro is the father of the six-year-old girl born in captivity to one of the kidnapping victims.

Castro's DNA profile was also compared to other DNA profiles submitted to the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).  

Castro's DNA did not match any other Ohio cases, however national results are pending through the FBI.
