There have been more than one dreaded criminal in the world, whose soul tremors after knowing their crimes. One such criminal is Josef Fritzl, whose abominable crime was discussed worldwide. In fact, Joseph Fritzl kept his daughter Elizabeth Fritzl (Elisabeth Fritzl) imprisoned for 24 years and raped her. During this time Elizabeth is the mother of seven children. Out of this, three children were kept in captivity along with their mother. Elizabeth was freed from her father’s brutal captivity on this day and told the world her pain.
Josef Fritzl began building a complex in the 1970s under his house in Amstetten village in central Austria. Then on the evening of August 28, 1984, Joseph told Elizabeth that he needed her help to put a door in the complex. Unknown Elizabeth came downstairs and Joseph sniffed him and put him in the prison. After this Joseph kept him locked in a prison without windows for 24 years. At the same time, she appeared to the world on 26 April 2008 and told that her father raped her. Elizabeth reports that she had seven children, three of whom are with her. One of the remaining four children was murdered by Joseph. At the same time, he raised the other three together with his wife’s wife.
How was the crime exposed?
On April 19, 2008, her elder daughter Kirstin, who was imprisoned with Elizabeth, fainted. Joseph agreed to get her treated. After this, Elizabeth helped Joseph evacuate Kirstin from the prison. This was the first time that Elizabeth had seen the outside world for the first time in 24 years. On Kirstin’s exit, Joseph again locked Elizabeth in the prison. He then took Kirstin to the hospital and claimed that the girl’s mother had written a letter to him and told him about his condition. On the other hand, seeing Kirstin’s condition, the doctors suspected something wrong and he called the police.
The police arrived at the scene and requested Kirstin’s mother to come to the world and give more information about her daughter’s condition. On the other hand, the police now began to suspect Joseph’s point and reopened the report of Elizabeth’s disappearance. Joseph told the police that his daughter Elizabeth had joined a religious gathering and was always outside. However, he has continued to write letters after disappearing from home. However, the police felt that there is no such organization of the religious gathering which Joseph is talking about. On the other hand, the letters Joseph claimed to have been written by Elizabeth were very old.
Elizabeth told police
At the same time, when Joseph came home, Elizabeth pleaded with him to see the daughter. On 26 April, on the orders of Joseph, Elizabeth, along with her sons Stephen and Felix, came out of the prison. All these people reached the hospital, but there was a dispute between Elizabeth and Joseph over something. Then the police took both of them into custody and took them to the police station to answer the question. Here Elizabeth did not give much information to the police. Then the police promised her that if she tells the truth then her father will be arrested and she will not have to see her father again.
Elizabeth then informed the police about the excesses she had with her for 24 years. He told that Joseph raped her and beat her. Elizabeth told that Joseph used to force her to watch dirty movies. Apart from this, he used to rape her in front of children. By night, the police conducted a thorough investigation into the case and arrested Joseph on April 26 for committing serious crimes against family members. Joseph is currently serving his sentence in prison.
