Josef Fritzl sentenced to life in prison

Post by shammy on Sat Mar 21, 2009 7:27 am

Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man who imprisoned his daughter for 24 years in a cellar and fathered her seven children, has been found guilty on all charges against him. He will spend the rest of his life locked in a psychiatric institution.

Fears house of horrors could become ghoulish tourist attraction

The house where Josef Fritzl imprisoned his daughter in a purpose-built dungeon for 24 years may be bought by the local council in Amstetten, Austria, to prevent it being turned into a ghoulish tourist attraction.

Untill now the house in Ybbstrasse where Fritzl raped his daughter more than 3,000 times has remained a sealed crime scene, constantly guarded by police.

But after Fritzl was sentenced to life in a secure psychiatric facility on Thursday the Austrian authorities must decide what to do with the sprawling 66-room property.

Fritzl just dragged Austria's already tarnished image down further

Austrian authorities this week hoped to close the darkest chapter of the country’s post-war crime record with a snap four-day trial, but international coverage of the trial has only served to open the barely healed scar to the country's image by the harrowing story of incest dad Josef Fritzl and his crimes.
