Dr. Drew On Call

Driven by current events, "Dr. Drew" on HLN focuses on the human - and human behavior - at the center of the story.

Did Castro die from auto-erotic asphyxiation?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Officials probe whether death was result of auto-erotic asphyxiation
  • Guards appeared to have falsified logs "for their rounds," prisons agency says
  • Castro's body was found with an open Bible and pictures of his family

The man who held and tortured three females in his Cleveland, Ohio home for roughly 10 years may have died by accident last month because of auto-erotic asphyxiation, which involves depriving the brain of oxygen by controlled strangulation to intensify a sexual experience.

An investigation also found that two prison guards appeared to have not performed required rounds at the facility and falsified records.

HLN's Dr. Drew takes a closer look at what was found in Castro's cell , that included a Bible open to John Chapters 2 and 3 with pictures of his family "arranged in a poster-board fashion."

Dr. Drew On Call airs Monday through Thursday on HLN at 9 p.m. ET. Follow the show on Facebook and Twitter @DrDrewHLN.
