Convicted Cleveland kidnapper/rapist Ariel Castro may have died from auto-erotic asphyxiation, not suicide, according to a scandalous new report.

Two prison guards falsified logs documenting observations taken hours before Ariel Castro died, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction states.

Castro's pants and underwear were pulled down to his ankles when he was found, leading the state to forward those facts to the state highway patrol.

"A person can only die in prison once," Russo added of the mammoth sentence, which he said was "commensurate with the harm" done by Ariel Castro.

Russo, noting how Castro treated victims, said consecutive sentences rendered in his case must be "imposed" to protect the public and "to punish you."
