Authorities investigating the suicide of Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro have figured out how he did it – with a bed sheet.

But the investigation isn’t over. Officials still have to figure out how he even committed suicide while being held in protective custody, especially since the notorious inmate was supposed to be checked on every 30 minutes.

And despite initial reports about Castro’s suicide, he was not on suicide watch while in the county jail.

One review will look at the suicide – normal in such cases – while the other is an examination of Castro’s circumstances and whether he received the proper medical and mental health care leading up to his suicide.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio called for an investigation into Castro’s death as well as the question of whether inmates are getting the mental health treatment they need.

“As horrifying as Mr. Castro’s crimes may be, the state has a responsibility to ensure his safety from himself and others,” ACLU of Ohio Executive Director Christine Link said in a statement.

The findings aren’t conclusive yet, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on what the investigation reveals.
