Workers demolished the Cleveland house of Ariel Castro on Wednesday, the residence where he tortured and kept three women captive for more than a decade.

Castro was spared a possible death sentence but sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison. Authorities did not want anything in the house to be sold online as “memorabilia.”
