Mr. Josef Fritzl Apparently Kidnaps And Holds Daughter As Sex Slave For Over 20 Years!


A 72 year old man known as Mr. Josef Fritzl, apparently admitted holding his daughter hostage for over 20 years. She was apparently held in a windowless cell in the basement of his home. Mr. F. also apparently admitted to police that he fathered with his daughter Elisabeth F. several children. One of the children apparently died and Mr. F. supposedly burned the body in an oven. Elisabeth F., age 42, is apparently "very disturbed." She went missing in 1984 at age 18. This sick ordeal was apparently discovered when one of the products of incest, a 19-year-old woman identified as Kristen F., was admitted to a hospital in Amstetten, outside Vienna. A DNA test apparently revealed the 19 year-old's grandfather, Mr. F., was also her father.

Josef F. may have fathered at least six children with his daughter. The daughter and three of her children apparently lived in hidden rooms in the cellar of his house. Elisabeth, apparently told police that her father drugged, handcuffed and dragged her into a basement back in 1984. The cellar room was accessible only through a hidden door with an electronic code. She said she was a constant victim of sexual abuse and incest.
The case is eerily similar to the kidnapping of Natascha Kampusch, an Austrian schoolgirl who was held in a windowless basement cell for eight years. She escaped in August 2006. LINK
These cases are simply, sick!
Update 4-30-08: Austrian police believe Josef Fritzl fathered seven children with his daughter. Josef Fritzl apparently admitted raping his daughter and fathering her children. According to the A.P., police are also investigating whether Josef Fritzl was involved in an unsolved murder of a young woman. In the mean time, a reunion of Fritzl's family apparently occurred this past week end.
According to Berthold Kepplinger, "It is astonishing how easy it worked, that the children came together and also it was astonishing how easy it happened that the grandmother and the mother came together." (Elisabeth and two of her children joined with three of her other children and her mother.) Elisabeth's eldest child, 19-year-old Kerstin Fritzl, remains in hospital.
Update 11-12-08: Prosecutors filed a murder charge Thursday against Fritzl who is accused of imprisoning his daughter for 24 years and fathering her seven children. Prosecutors claim that one of the youngsters who died in infancy might have survived if brought to a doctor. Good luck on that charge...
Update 3-17-09: Josef Fritzl pleaded "partially guilty" to multiple charges of rape, but denied charges of enslavement and the murder of the child who died shortly after birth. Trial continues...
Update 3-18-09: After hearing his daughter testify, the defendant pleaded guilty Wednesday to all charges against him — including negligent homicide. Josef Fritzl calmly acknowledged his guilt. Have mercy on his soul...

This makes me appreciate my dad! All these negative stories give fathers a bad name.

This is sick.

They should castrate him.

Are the offspring mentally deficient??

This story is just sick! Life in prison is just not enough for this creep.

Puts new meaning into the term "cellar dweller." Used to think that meant the Cubs, now I have entirely different images that come to mind.

There may be more to this story then first meets the eye. How could a 72 year old man physcially restrain her and her children. One of the kids was 19! Stay tuned.

Keep in Mind, July 7 is a special day named: "Fathers and Daughters Take A Walk Together Day"

The special bond between fathers and daughters will be celebrated on July 7. This is an annual event in honor of the extraordinary relationships between dads and their little girls...

This is a serious special event place within a sick thread to high light that most dads are good positive role models for their daughters.

I’m with secrets. Except that I’d add slowly, creatively, and maliciously. I know, I know, there’s that pesky thing about cruel and unusual punishment (here, but what about there?). But he still deserves it.

Range me. Opps, sorry...wee a bit low. 80 clicks up at 100 yards ought to do it. My bad.

Fritzl is in a legal pickle. He apparently has violated more laws then carter has pills. But will his daughter press charges. The answer may surprise everyone...

Meet my son, who is also my grandson. Meet my wife who is my son's grandmother but not his mother.

Jennifer said...

Why aren't they charging him with kidnapping, forced imprisonment, etc.

Everything I've read just says rape and coercion w/max term of 15 years. He incarcerated them for 24!

Legal Pub said...

Jennifer, the Austrian Legal system is different then in the U.S. I strongly believe that they are not done charging him yet! He will never again see the light of day outside of a prison or mental hospital, in my opinion.

Breaking News: De jure Ausrian - de facto Australian

I think you'll find that Fritzl is in fact from Australia. Only a nation of sunburnt, racist, criminals could produce such a monster. He moved to Austria in the seventies after being charged with pestering marsupials. His subterranean activities were actually an ill fated attempt to dig his way back down under using a clan of albinos whom he fathered. The real crime is that they could never have handled the Australian sun.

Elisabeth Fritzl is happy to be free. After allegedly being imprisoned in her father’s dungeon for 24 years, she has made a poster thanking the public for her support. The poster contains outlines of her and her children's hands. (Not Kerstin, as she is still in a coma.) I believe her mother’s hand outline is also on the poster.

Say a prayer for this family.I don’t understand German, but if what I have been told is correct, this family is truly deserving of our prayers for a normal life.

Mr Fritzl is 73. He is in police custody but has not yet been charged. Police claim he confessed to the alleged crimes and that his confession is supported by DNA. Police believe he acted alone. he apparently led a double life. In public he appeared to be a respectable member of the community, living in Amstetten with his wife Rosemarie. He and Rosemarie had seven grown-up children.But out of the public eye, he was a dungeon master...
