State to pay cost of Cleveland kidnapper autopsy

Associated Press • Feb 7, 2014 at 3:40 PM

Gary Mohr, director of the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, cited the “unique and extraordinary” circumstances of Castro’s September death at the Correctional Reception Center in Pickaway County.

The Columbus Dispatch reported Wednesday Mohr agreed to foot the $1,100 bill.

Though Castro’s autopsy was conducted in Franklin County, state law places the responsibility for autopsy costs on the county where the death occurred.
