Ohio kidnap suspects family 'pack their bags and flee' as mother apologizes 'for what my son has done'
Carrying bags with their heads down, Ariel Castro's family looked frantic as they hurriedly sped off in a car today.
Marisol Alicea, believed to be alleged kidnapper Castro's sister, was picked up by their mother, Lillian Rodriguez, from her home in Cleveland, Ohio.
It is unclear where the family are headed - their quick exit has fuelled rumors they are fleeing town to escape the media frenzy.
Talking animatedly on her mobile phone Marisol Alicea was seen with two bags as she climbed into her mother's awaiting red 4x4.
Police officers stood guard near the car and Marisol Alicea put her hand up to cover her face as the car sped away.
A friend was seen holding the family dog suggesting the pair will be away for a some time.
Yesterday Lillian Rodriguez tearfully apologized for her son's actions and said she is 'in a lot of pain'.
She spoke to reporters from the window of her car as she left her home, which she shares with her son Pedro, who was also arrested in connection with the kidnappings but who has not been charged.
'I am a mother in a lot of pain,' she said in Spanish. 'I am sorry for what my son has done.'

I don’t know about what the brothers knew or did not know. The whole family however seems a bit odd. If they are innocent of all this why are they getting the hell out of Dodge?
I can understand them wanting to leave. That does not seem strange to me even if they are innocent
What does seem strange is that nobody in the family knew anything about what was happening in that house
They’ve been receiving death threats and their properties have been vandalized. They probably have a reasonable fear of being killed by somebody acting as a vigilante.
How much do you really know about what goes on in your neighbour’s or family member’s home?
If you’re brother kept a padlocked room, would really bust the door down to see why he keeps it padlocked?
The little girl called AC’s mom “grandmother”?
Where did this Mom think she came from?
Woe ... that alone says the family knew something was going on.
Even if they did not outright know, there is a legal term for this... “Willful Blindness”
I think so too. Your son comes home with a little girl and no one asks “who is the mother?” Either that is one messed up family or they darn well knew.
Ariel Castro’s testicles should be furiously stomped on until they are paste.
His family? only time will tell what their roll in this was.
The sins of the fathers are visited on the sons.
Sadly, the families of monsters are painted with the same broad brush.
Hope they can be found if evidence shows they knew
They will be back in the old country when that happens.
Of couse I know what all my family members are doing. I’m sure you do as well.
I don’t know about yours but mine sure as hell ain’t locking people up in the attic!
Glad someone else caught that...
I hope you never find that a family member is breaking the law and you didn’t know it.
Maybe not as extreme as this...but if you can tell me that you know what every family member is doing I must say I’m impressed.
And I might ask..have you gone in all of your family’s attics? Ya never know. :)
They’re leaving because they’ve been threatened.
