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.

I would have preferred a much longer more painful death that would be torturous for years but at least he's gone and we don't have to pay to farm him

SOUNDS TO ME THAT THEY FOUND HIM DEAD AND TO HUMILIATE THE REST OF HIS FAMILY THEY PULL HIS PANTS DOWN ... NO DOUBT CASTRO WAS A PIECE OF **** BUT HIS FAMILY MEMBERS DIDN T DESERVE THAT .

Sounds like he 'got off easy' compared to what the other prisoners would have done to him in the long run.
