The men described their horror when being told of the three women during police interrogations. "My heart fell. I just dropped, not physically, but I just, I just hit the ground," Onil Castro said. "This has torn my heart apart. This has killed me. I am a walking corpse right now."
Both brothers say they had nothing to do with the alleged crimes, and fear always being eyed by the public as possible collaborators.
Pedro Castro said, "I can't go nowhere because they think I'm a monster, too, and I'm not. And it just keeps going over and over in my head that people are just thinking that I did this." His brother Onil said he also fears he will always be viewed with suspicion. Both men said they would have turned in their brother if they'd known about the women.
"The monster is a goner," Onil Castro told CNN. "I hope he rots in that jail. I don't even want them to take his life like that. I want him to suffer in that jail to the last extent. I don't care if they even feed him." The alleged kidnapper may face the death penalty if convicted of aggravated murder for inducing abortions. "I feel the same way," Pedro said, clarifying, "I loved him so much."
