On the day that convicted kidnapper Ariel Castro‘s Cleveland home was demolished with the help of his victim’s families, Google Maps destroyed the home in their own way.
The aerial view, however, has not been blurred. Though it does seem like the satellite imagery is slightly distorted for the entire neighborhood:
Google’s decision might strike some as odd, seeing as the company has not blurred the homes of other high-profile crimes. Ultimately, however, this seems to be the company’s expression of solidarity with the kidnapping victims on the day their tormenter’s home was demolished.
