At Ariel Castro’s sentencing hearing Thursday morning, investigators revealed photos (shown below) from inside the Cleveland house of horrors where he kept three women hostage for nearly a decade.

In diaries, the women, Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, revealed that they were chained to beds and held like “prisoners of war.”

Testimony at the hearing indicated that the women were held separately. Among the photos from the house is a note that Castro wrote years ago, admitting that he is a sexual predator and confessing to his crimes.
