CLEVELAND (AP) — A relative of three brothers arrested in Cleveland says their family is "totally shocked" three women missing for years were found at the home of one of them.
Juan Alicea says the arrests of his wife's brothers have left relatives "as blindsided as anyone else" in their community.
Alicea says he hadn't been to the home of his brother-in-law Ariel Castro since the early 1990s. Three women who vanished separately about a decade ago were found captive Monday at the run-down house after one of them escaped and contacted police.
Alicea says he had eaten dinner with Castro at a different brother's house shortly before the arrests were made. No charges have been filed. Castro is jailed and can't be reached for comment.
The case leaves Cleveland police facing questions about their handling of missing-person cases. They're conducting an internal review.
