(AP Photo/Cuyahoga County) (Newser) – DNA tests have confirmed the obvious: Ariel Castro is the father of the girl that captive Amanda Berry had about six years ago, reports the AP. Among the horrific details that have emerged from police is this one: Castro forced Michelle Knight to deliver Berry's baby in a kiddie pool. Police have described young Jocelyn, remarkably, as "happy, healthy." Her mom had been home-schooling her all this time. An adult daughter of Castro, meanwhile, considers him "dead to me."
