‘So So Sorry’

Kidnapper’s Daughter Apologizes

In a tearful interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, the daughter of suspected Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro begged Gina DeJesus—her former childhood friend—to forgive any role she had in enabling the abduction. “I am absolutely so so sorry,” the 22-year-old cried. Ariene was one of the last people to see Gina in 2004 on the day she was kidnapped—but claims she had no idea that it was her own father who did it. “[We were] not that close,” Ariene told GMA. “Every time we would talk it would just be short conversations, just a hello.” The kidnapper’s daughter says she hopes to see Gina, and introduce her to her kids.
