Ariel Castro, the man accused of holding Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight captive for around a decade, allegedly wrote a suicide note in 2004.

The note gives many details of Castro’s life that may help explain why he committed such a horrific act, but why it continued for 9 more years will forever remain a mystery.

The handwritten note discovered in the house from which the three women escaped on Monday reveals that Castro was abused by his parents as a child and raped by an uncle.

The 52-year-old Castro had lived in the home since 1992, and has held the girls captive dating back as far as 2002.

The note also reveals that Castro had regrets about holding the girls captive, and even a cry for help.

“I am a sexual predator. I need help,” the note allegedly reads.

In writing about killing himself, Castro wrote he wanted to “give all the money I saved to my victims.”

This regret must’ve dissipated in later years, as Castro forced Michelle to deliver Amanda Berry’s baby, and if the baby didn’t survive, he would kill Michelle.

Castro was charged with three counts of rape and four counts of kidnapping. His bond has been set at $8 million.
