COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A report says that Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro called the mother of one of his victims while she was in captivity and told her she was OK.
Castro also told investigators during a videotaped interrogation that opportunities were missed for capturing him while he held the women he kidnapped.
He says he hung up and they didn't have a conversation.
Berry's mother died before Berry was freed in May.
Castro told investigators video surveillance near the school of another victim should have tipped police to him.
The 53-year-old Castro committed suicide in prison Tuesday night.
