The children locked in the basement never saw the light of day for years.

This happened in Amstetten, Austria. A retired electrician named Josef Fritzl 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. His daughter, now 42, was 18 when she was imprisoned in the cell constructed deep beneath the family's apartment in the building. The daughter said that she gave birth to twins back in 1996, but one died several days later. Police said the surviving children are three boys and three girls, the youngest of whom is 5. The oldest is 19. DNA tests were expected to determine whether Fritzl is the father. Fritzl "managed to deceieve everyone", including his wife, Rosemarie, who apparently was unaware of the existence of the children in the cellar. Fritz had seven other children with Rosemarie, police said. Officials said three of the secret children-aged 19, 18, and 5- "never saw sunlight" until they were freed a few days ago. The daughter, Elisabeth, had been missing since 1984, and authorities said her father claimed she joined a cult. She was found by police in Amstetten on Saturday evening. Three of the children lived with the grandparents. Fritz and his wife registered those children with authorities, saying that they had found them outside their home in 1993, 1994, and 1997, at least one with a note from Elisabeth saying she could not care for the child. The case unfolded after the eldest of the secret children , a 19-year-old, was found unconscious and gravely ill on April 19 in the building and was taken to the hospital. This is from the AP. Any thoughts on this?

All I'll say is I hope the prick gets life in prison, but it's not likely. They say that if charged with this (rape charges) all he will get is 15 years under Austrian law.

How twisted is this ...

I thought I had heard of everything, but this is a new low. Maybe they should lock him up in a cell, no sunlight for 20 or so years and let some big bruiser named bubba have at him every night. Might show him what it feels like.

I heard about this at work today, then found a paper (not the local one) and read about..Got home and on the internet to read more about it..

This guy needs to be locked up for life..15 years is nothing compared to what he put his daughter and other kids through..

There are some sick, twisted people in this world...

I am thinking it was the Columbus dispatch..I also went on MSN homepage and looked at World Wide News and read it there.

Unbelievable...really. This is the best argument for the death penalty I have seen. I will settle for life in prison if they lock him in a dungeon and have some guy come in and rape him every night. Sorry...just the way I feel about it...

24 yrs in a basement dungeon with sum 1 ass rapin him every the least they could do

Apr 29 @ 10:35PM

Apr 30 @ 1:49AM
