Investigators find note of admission believed to be written by Ariel Castro

More information is being uncovered about the dark world inside the home where three women were held hostage for years and getting sexually abused. Multiple sources say that the man living there had written a suicide note years ago outlining what he did and why. In the note, Castro talks about a sex addiction and needing help. It puts some blame on the victims for getting in the car with him, and it refers to family problems and a poor childhood. Castro and his two brothers, Pedro and Olin, are being held in jail in separate cells. Sources say the suspects are getting a lot of verbal abuse from other inmates. (Source)

Hackers steal $45M in matter of hours

A gang of cyber-criminals stole $45 million in a matter of hours by hacking their way into a database of prepaid debit cards and then fanning out around the globe to drain cash machines. A security analyst said it was the biggest ATM fraud case she had heard of. Seven people are under arrest in the U.S. in connection with the case, which prosecutors said involved thousands of thefts from ATMs using bogus magnetic swipe cards. The accused ringleader in the U.S. cell, Alberto Yusi Lajud-Pena, was reportedly murdered in the Dominican Republic late last month, prosecutors said. More investigations are ongoing and other arrests have been made in other countries, but prosecutors did not have details. (Source)
