Monster of Amstetten abusing his daughters more than 40 years

Austrian accused of sexually abusing his daughters more than 40 years. Josef Fritzl, 85, had beaten and abused his two daughters, now 53 and 45 years.

Alois Lissl, director of Safety, told Austrian agency on suspicion of incest and abuse, which recalls the horror of so-called ‘Monster of Amstetten”, a man who kept his daughter hostage in a basement and had seven children with her for 24 years.

The new case has occurred in a neighborhood near the city of Braunau in Upper Austria near the German border.

Apparently, in addition to abusing his wife, who died three years ago, the man who is in a nursing home and whose identity was not revealed, kept their daughters away from all social contact and began abusing them in 1970.

According Lissl, victims said they had not dared to denounce his father for this, possessor of weapons had been forbidden to contact other people and repeatedly threatened to kill them.

Although the house has several rooms, the father used to lock them in a small room, where he beat and raped them.

The case was discovered by accident when the octogenarian tried last May, a new approach to sexual and eldest daughter fought back with a blow that knocked him down.

The man could not get up again and daughters left him lying two days until he was found by a social worker, who called an ambulance.

“The alleged victims are delayed intellectual,” said Martin Pumberger police commander, adding that both are now under protection and treatment. “It is clear that women are relieved to be liberated,” he added.

Sources of the Office of Ried, handling the case confirmed that both children are mentally handicapped and just weeks after his father, who has denied the allegations, was in the hospital started talking about the abuse they suffered.
