Ariel Castro's house demolished

The Cleveland home where three women were held captive and brutally beaten and sexually abused for the past decade met its fate Wednesday — a wrecking crew.

It came only 93 days after the women — Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight — were able to escape their captor, Ariel Castro, 53, who has been sent to prison for the rest of his life.
