Josef Fritzl: – I really regret that

The horror story of Josef Fritzl, 87, shocked the entire world when it became known that he had kept his daughter Elisabeth captive for 24 years as a sex slave behind eight locked doors in a basement in Amstetten, Austria.

Fritzl raped his daughter more than 3,000 times, and together they had seven children. She was forced to carry and deliver all the babies in the basement without medical assistance. One of them, a twin, was sick, but the first let the newborn die – for fear that he himself would be exposed.

He was held in captivity for 18 years

Three of the seven children lived relatively normal lives from an early age, taking care of Fritzl’s clueless wife on the second floor.

Austria’s most hated man was not revealed until 2008, after his daughter Kerstin fell ill and required medical attention. The following year, in 2009, Fritzl was sentenced to life in prison.
