In the letter, Castro goes into detail about the women -- Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight -- and admits to needing help for a sex addiction, the station reported. (That report has not been independently confirmed.)

Castro partially blames the women for getting into a car with him in the first place in the note, WOIO-TV reported, also referring to a bad childhood and family problems. The note was written years ago, according to the station.

Castro and his two brothers, Onil and Pedro, are expected to be charged Wednesday now that authorities have finished collecting evidence from the house.

Authorities recovered rope and chains from the home, law enforcement sources told NBC News, adding the women said Castro and his two brothers, Pedro and Onil, used to keep them imprisoned.

The men are all being held in custody separately, WOIO-TV reported, adding that the other inmates have been verbally abusive with them as news spreads through the jail facility.
