CLEVELAND -- Police and the county sheriff visited Ariel Castro's Seymour Avenue home five times in the 10 years that Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight were held hostage.
Dominion East Ohio Gas installed automated meters between 2007 and last year, during the time the women were held captive.

But the gas company refused to tell Channel 3 News if an indoor meter was replaced with the newer model.
Cleveland Public Power, or CPP, says it normally checks residential power use monthly, which would mean employees would have visited Castro's home about 120 times over 10 years.
Did they notice or hear anything suspicious?
"Our contact with customers is limited to the outside of the home. It is a very rare occasion that we are called to go into a home," said Shelley Shockley, the spokesperson for CPP.
The Cleveland Division of Water reads meters every three months. That means they would have checked Castro's meter about 40 times while the women were held against their will. Did the employees ever go inside to repair the meter?
Channel 3 news has asked the city to provide all records involving visits to the home and repairs done to meters.
