Convicted Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro may have died by pulling a David Carradine ... hanging himself while masturbating -- an act known as auto-erotic asphyxiation -- according to a new investigative report that was just released by the prison.

Castro was discovered in his cell by prison guards Sept. 3rd ... hanging from a hinge in the window of his cell ... with a bed sheet wrapped around his neck.  His death was initially ruled a suicide.

The report reveals Castro died with his pants and underwear pulled down around his ankles ... which raised the possibility of auto-erotic asphyxiation ... according to the report.

And there's more ... prison officials found an open Bible in Castro's cell ... which was opened to John Chapters 2 and 3.  They also discovered pictures of his family ... arranged in poster-board fashion.

At the time of his death ... Castro was just a few weeks into a life sentence ... for kidnapping three women and holding them in captivity in his house for a decade.

He got off on torturing girls and obviously himself.. If that's what killed him. That is Karma at its finest.

Is there a logical reason that this animal is still having his picture shown and stories written on him?

Still doesn't change the fact that the only good thing he's done in his life is to ensure Ohio's taxpayers are no longer on the hook for his three hots and a cot.

It was written in the report that guards neglected to check on him for over 8 hours and falsified logs to show they checked on him..... personally, I would have definitely given him the tools to off himself and walk away, maybe thats kind of what those wonderful guards did.

i don't want to go into too much detail but... you choke yourself with a belt around your neck while masturbating dressed up like Batman or something, then you pass out from lack of air and apparently it makes your orgasm super awesome.
