  Original Published: 5/14/2013   The brothers of the Cleveland kidnapping suspect are condemning Ariel Castro and pleading their innocence.    Their cousin, Maria Castro-Montes, was relieved to hear that Ariel Castro was the only one accused of harming the three women.   "It's very difficult, first of all, because we did, you know, the media was making it look, and the police did make it look like it was all three," she says. "So there was certainly a great sense of relief when we found out that the two had been found innocent. You know, i should hope. One of my initial statements was to please not judge an entire family based on one person's actions, and here then became a perfect example. These poor men have also fallen victim to the horrible things that their brother did."   Castro-Montes says Ariel Castro fooled everyone.   Ariel Castro's brothers call him "a monster."
