Tape Of Confession Played In Father's Killing Of Children

October 08, 2009|By Tricia Bishop | Tricia Bishop,

Mark Castillo and his three children spent the day downtown, at the Maryland Science Center, before he checked into the Marriott Inner Harbor hotel at Camden Yards about 5 p.m. March 29, 2008, according to a statement he gave police at Maryland Shock Trauma Center a day later.

By then, the children were dead, and Castillo was recovering from self-inflicted stab wounds to his neck.

"My plan," he said on the tape, "was after [we] had a good day, to, uh, take their lives."
