Google Maps blurs image of Castro's house before demo

Before a cheering crowd, Ariel Castro's Seymour Avenue home was demolished on Wednesday morning.

But before the house was reduced to a pile of rubble, Google Maps wiped his house off the map - literally.

A Google search of 2207 Seymour Avenue in Cleveland shows a blurred image of the house where three women were held captive and sexually assaulted for a decade.

Castro has since been sentenced to life in prison, plus 1,000 years. As part of Castro's plea agreement, his west side Cleveland house was to be torn down.
