Transcript for Castro Neighbor Reported Screams in Past
We're joined by another neighbor, juan perez. Thank you for joining us this morning. I know you live just two houses away from ariel castro. Before you saw the police pull up last night, had you had any sense that something terribly wrong was happening inside that house? No, I had no idea. Like I can't lie, I thought he was a nice guy. He was loving to all the kids in the neighborhood. He was nice to me since I was 5 years old. Never had any kind of suspicions. You've known him basically your whole life. You knew ariel castro but you never saw any of the women. You never saw that little girl in the picture with brittany. Never, never see any of them. Not once and what about the house, I hear as we saw earlier in that piece that it was kind of closed off? Like it always seemed like no one was there, no one lived there. I thought personally that he lived someone else and he just came to time again to check on it. So I didn't see it as closed off. I just saw that no one was staying will. You didn't think he was there that much at all but what would he do in the neighborhood? He would come around every once in a while. In the last couple of years i only seen him a couple times a week in the morning either driving the school bus or driving one of his few cars and he would just come in the house about 20 minutes, come right back out and leave. On a random saturday he may bring out his four-wheeler and there's kids out on the block and take them for rides up and down the street. But really I hardly ever see him. Now, a few years ago your family heard some screams coming from that house and you did report it to police. What can you tell us what happened there? Well, my sister -- my mother had heard the screaming and then I heard it too. My sister then reported it. But we didn't know which direction it was coming from. We didn't know seriously if it was from the right side or the left side because we were inside the house, but there's a difference between -- there is a difference between a woman that's, you know, playing around and joking around screaming and there's another kind of scream that makes you want to report. And my sister reported it. But we reallouldn't give that much information because we didn't know where it was coming from. You did report it as soon as you heard but other than that never saw any of those women. Okay, juan, thanks very much. And we never even thought it could be this so -- thank you.
