House Of Horrors: 24 year old crime

This is just too sick for words. Disgusting rotten and horrifying.
(if you dont feel like reading the whole thing, scroll down to the time line)

Austrian Josef Fritzl imprisoned his daughter for 24 years and fathered seven children with her.

The abused daughter told police her father began sexually abusing her at age 11. On August 8, 1984 -- weeks before she was reported missing -- her father enticed her into the basement, where he drugged her, put her in handcuffs, and locked her in a room, she told police.

For the next 24 years, she was constantly raped by her father, resulting in seven children, six of whom survived, she said, according to the police statement.

She told police she gave birth to twins in 1996, but one of the babies died a few days later as a result of neglect, and Josef Fritzl removed the infant's body and burned it.

Elisabeth told police that only her father supplied her and her children with food and clothing, and that she did not think her mother, Rosemarie, knew anything about their situation.

Three of the children were kept underground in the cellar with their mother Kerstin 19, Stefan, 18, and Felix, 5.They never saw the light of day.

The other three lived upstairs with the family. The criminal made it look like his daughter had left them on the doorstep claiming she could not take care of them begging her parents to take them in.

The community viewed Josef Fritzl, a retired electrical engineer, as a loving grandfather who took his grandchildren in their time of need, never suspecting he was also their father!

The breakthrough in the case began a week ago when Kerstin Fritzl fell seriously ill with convulsions.

Her mother Elisabeth begged Josef to take her to a hospital, which he did.

Josef told his wife that their missing daughter had dropped off ailing Kerstin on the doorstep with a note asking that they get her medical care.

Josef took her to the town's clinic with the note, but doctors needed more information to determine why the young woman was unconscious and having violent convulsions.

So they contacted police, who asked the local media to report on Kerstin's situation in an effort to find the missing mother.

Elisabeth and her two sons saw the reports on the television provided to them in their 100-square-foot living quarters, police spokesman Franz Polzer said, and "they desperately pleaded with their father so they could be taken (to the hospital)... (and) do something for the 19-year-old."

Josef Fritzl agreed, and took all three of the remaining captives out of the basement, explaining to Rosemarie and the rest of the family that Elisabeth had reappeared with her two children after an absence of 24 years.

He took them to the hospital and, at some point, authorities there realized something was wrong. Police picked up both Josef and Elisabeth on Saturday near the hospital and brought them into the station for questioning.

Josef would not talk to police but Elisabeth began to tell her story once she was convinced she would never have to see her father again, and that her children would be safe.

Disgusting creatures these people. An incident happened not too far from where I lived in Florida. A 7 yr old boy found chained like a dog on the front porch of a house in the woods. Turned out granny treated him like a dog, he even barked & whined like one.

This is wrong on so many levels:

Slavery, rape, incest, kidnapping, murder.


April 29, 2008 at 10:55 PM  

Yea I read this in Yahoo news the other day. Pretty fucked up world yea? This is soooo reminicent of the other case in austria not so long ago where a young girl was kidnapped by a psycho and locked up in a cellar for 8 years.
I doubt giving the father a life sentence would be useful considering that he's already a crothedy 73 year old man.

April 30, 2008 at 12:57 AM  

There is nothing that can explain my emotion at the moment. Why would a father do this. Then all these years she was tortured, he just wasted her future!

That's INSANE!

April 30, 2008 at 1:46 PM

April 30, 2008 at 2:15 PM  

Waay Staghfarallah ..
Kash Sha3aar yambii!
I read somewhere that when they found her, her hair was white!
He Should Burn in hell !!

April 30, 2008 at 3:32 PM  

This man is insane he has to lose his life. That will not turn back the clock but something to him more than a slap on his hand.
My father is from Austria and nothing surprises me NOTHING and he was very demanding and he knew all so nothing surprises me.
I don't think in that part of the world doesn't understand freedoms like we do they just don't.
Just look at his eyes and you can see what kind of man he really is there is no doubt.

April 30, 2008 at 5:23 PM  

I have been reading on this since it first came on news. It is absolutely disgusting and reminds me of a similar case I have seen on Oprah.

How can his wife NOT know of the cellar!

Its soo scary how cruel, people can become. I thought rape by strangers was the worst thing. The only one who can give him his deserved punishment is Allah.
