House of Horror!

It’s like something out of a bad movie or a scary novel.
Apparently this dude has kept his daughter locked in the basement for 24 years, had seven children by her, burning one of them in the oven when the child died, and his wife never knew about it. Talk about freaky! They’ve got the story up over at CNN.

A 73-year-old man has confessed to holding his daughter captive in his home cellar for nearly 24 years and fathering seven children by her, Austrian police say. The woman is described as “very disturbed” and having trouble talking about her ordeal. She went missing in 1984, when she was 18, police said.

Hey, isn’t Austria where that other dude kept the girl captive that escaped last year? Hell, I don’t really remember but it sure is ringing a bell.
Here’s more of the story from CNN:

Police spokesman Franz Polzer told CNN that 73-year-old Josef Fritzl admitted holding his daughter, Elisabeth Fritzl, 42, hostage in the windowless cell and fathering seven children by her.
“The mother had memories [of the outside world] and got used to the situation,” Polzer told a press conference Monday afternoon. “The others knew nothing else.”

This is just damned creepy. I haven’t found any news video up yet or I would attach it here. I originally ran across the story at the University of Alberta Law blog, thanks guys (or gals)
I’ve been looking around the net for links to this story and found Bella’s site. She answered my question above about the Austrian Girl. It was Natascha Kampusch that was abducted and lived for eight years in this sick bastard’s basement as a prisoner until she escaped. Now I remember writing about it at the time.
