WKYC’s Lynna Lai Discovers She’s Facebook Friends With Cleveland Kidnapping Suspect

There are a lot of unanswered questions in the case of three missing women who were rescued Monday in Cleveland, but we know at least one thing about the alleged kidnapper: he is a fan of WKYC weekend anchor Lynna Lai.

Lai, who joined WKYC from rival WOIO last year, discovered yesterday that she is one of just 55 friends the suspect, Ariel Castro, has on Facebook.

“Crazy — I’m FB friends with suspect Ariel Castro. Who knew???” Lai wrote on her personal Facebook page. “Just so you know – I accept friend requests from all viewers, so I don’t actually know him. What a surreal day!”
