(Columbus) - Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has released the preliminary results of DNA testing performed in connection with Cleveland kidnapping and rape suspect Ariel Castro.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) received a sample of Castro's DNA late Thursday afternoon, and forensic scientists worked throughout the night to confirm that Castro is the father of the six-year-old girl born in captivity to kidnapping victim Amanda Berry.
Castro's DNA profile was also compared to other DNA profiles submitted to the Combined DNA Index System (CODIS). Castro's DNA did not match any other Ohio cases, however national results are pending through the FBI.
DeWine spoke with WTAM's Carmen Angelo and Darren Toms:
