Police: Austrian kids locked in basement, never saw sunlight


news.yahoo.com

AMSTETTEN, Austria - The children locked in the basement never saw the light of day for years. A retired electrician has confessed to imprisoning his daughter for 24 years and fathering seven children with her in a windowless cell sealed by an electronic keyless-entry system, police said Monday.
One of the children died in infancy and was tossed into the furnace of what stunned Austrians have labeled a "house of horrors," officials said.

This story shocks me, i can't believe anyone is capable of horrific acts like this. Its sad how someone's father could do such horrible things to their own flesh and blood. yet again i cant believe this actually happened, It bad enough to see horrible things like this in the movies, but to turn on the news and see stuff like this just makes me sick.

the interesting part is, as always contemplating the sourroundings of this man and why people alledgedly did not notice anything.


small town gossip should take care of such secrets, obviously, so the best explanation would be that he had considerable power over the community, which jives well with his apparent ability to put food for more than a dozen people on the table, despite being retired and all.

if you remember another case, ~2 years ago,

makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Thanks for sharing that story with all of us, here. There's an on-going discussion about Josef Fritzl's daughter: Elizabeth Fritzl, at the current-events forum:

How Sex Slave Dungeon Daughter Looks Now... After 24 Years Locked in a Cellar

See Article: www.thisislondon.co.uk


Haunted: Elisabeth Fritzl as a fresh-faced teenager and how she looks today (above).




Doctors say her teeth, hidden here behind her pursed lips, are horrifically decayed due to the years she lived in the windowless dungeon below her parents' home in Amstetten.

Fritzl allegedly started sexually abusing her when she was just 11 and is believed to started plotting to lock her up in his cellar at around the same time.

The image is a stark contrast to the last known picture of his daughter as a fresh-faced teenager before she was incarcerated and forced to become a sex slave.

It was created based on interviews with police and doctors who have been caring for her since she emerged from the cellar last weekend and is said to be an "accurate artist's impression" of the woman today.

Police say she now looks like the sister, rather than the daughter, of her mother, Rosemarie, 67, who was completely unaware of the "house of horrors" beneath her Doctors say her teeth, hidden here behind her pursed lips, are horrifically decayed due to the years she lived in the windowless dungeon below her parents' home in Amstetten.
