Police reportedly found a suicide note in Cleveland kidnapping suspect Ariel Castro's home shortly after his arrest in which the 52-year-old confessed to his crimes and admitted, "I am a sexual predator."

Scott Taylor, a reporter with Ohio's Channel 19 Action News, posted excerpts of the letter, which was reportedly written years ago, online Wednesday, the same day Castro was charged with four counts of kidnapping and three counts of rape.

Castro is accused of individually kidnapping three women — Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight — and keeping them restrained in his dungeon-like basement for nearly a decade, raping them, causing them to have abortions by punching them in their stomachs, and forcing one woman to give birth in a kiddie pool, according to ABC News.

Castro's two brothers, Onil Castro, 50, and Pedro Castro, 54, were also arrested with him, but have not been charged, police said.

In the note described as a suicide letter, Castro says he wants to kill himself and give all his money to his victims.

Castro reportedly blamed a sex addiction, family problems, and a troubled childhood for causing him to kidnap and torture the women.
