CLEVELAND - The house where three women were held captive and raped over a decade faces demolition in Cleveland.
The demolition scheduled Wednesday morning will leave unanswered the question: How could the crimes go unnoticed so long in Ariel Castro's blue-collar neighbourhood?
The house will be demolished as part of a deal that spared Castro a possible death sentence. He was sentenced last week to life in prison plus 1,000 years.
Family members including son Anthony Castro went to the house Monday and picked up personal items including old photographs and guitars.
Prosecutors say Ariel Castro cried when he signed over the house deed and mentioned his "many happy memories" there with the women.
The women escaped May 6 when one of them broke part of a door and yelled for help.
