'He is dead to me,' Ohio suspect's daughter says

Seldom does a daughter use such harsh words to describe her own father.

Ariel Castro's daughter called him "the most evil, vile, demonic criminal" she ever heard of during a CNN exclusive interview Thursday.

"He is dead to me," Angie Gregg said of the father police say kidnapped, held captive, raped and beat three young women in Cleveland for about a decade.

She had known her "daddy" as a "friendly, caring, doting man."

Now shocked and in disbelief, Gregg says she never wants to see him again.

    Poor woman! I bet her monsterous father never realized he'd essentially make her a victim, too! Or he just didn't care!!

    This is how wife-beaters get away with murder. She knew he was violent and probably has thousands of stories of him being violent. His parents raised him that way. You can bet they are a family that is real big on "discipline".

      "She deserved it, it's a private matter, she's just a prostitute, etc. etc." Women don't need to be dismissed. We need to be protected. Men are bigger and stronger and MANY of them routinely use their superior strength to force us into submission. We need more women in political power and more women in law enforcement because it has been the tendency of men to look the other way when women are beaten, raped and otherwise subjected to "might makes right" treatment.

    she knew her daddy as "a friendly caring, & doting man". So where were the tell tale signs?
    The stats on abuse, torture, rape. murder & incarceration of females in our society are shameful.

    This is what is scary & worrying, a facade of normalcy and an interior of vileness.

    It's nice to see at least one decent person in that family. Apparently there is another daughter in jail 25 years for slitting her own baby's throat. The baby survived.

    “the most evil, vile, demonic criminal” is an opinion that is shared by the three victims, I am sure. What lurks behind closed doors?
