Man kept his daughter locked for 24 years!!!

Post by jrkp » Mon Apr 28, 2008 11:19 pm

Can you believe this? An Austrian man kept his daughter locked in a cellar for 24 years... But that´s not all, apparently she had 7 kids with him.. The worst part is that supposedly, 3 of them hadn´t seen the sunlight yet...

Oh my god!! when I thought that the world couldn´t be more crazy and then, I came across with this kind of news...

Couldn't believe it when I heard it yesterday.

But there are some things I don't understand! What about the woman's mother? Didn't she ever notice anything? How could she not suspect anything?! How about the babies? Were they never ill? The man said that he and his wife had adopted three of them when they found them one day at their door. Is it that easy to adopt children in that country? Here, the lists are really really long.

I really hope he goes to prison. And unfortunately the I'm afraid the poor woman will have to be taken to a mental asylum or something. I don't think one is OK after such an experience!

I just heard that all this has been discovered because one of the children became ill. His (grand)father took him to the hospital and, seeing he had a strange disease (he was product of an incest) the doctors wanted to see the mother. That's when she was taken to hospital and explained everything.

The kids were adopted by them without trouble because the mother was forced to write a letter saying she was in a cult and couldn't take care of them, and asked her parents to do so for her.

This is so incredible.

This man is insane, I mean doing that to your own girl. I wonder how the girl gave birth in this cellar without any scientist help.

This is horrable and disgusting. It's happening in a European country in the beginning of the 21st century and no one around is noticing. I'm taken aback. The guy is a monster, I wonder if his daughter-wife have ever tried to kill him somehow, I mean she had to bear it for such a long period of time... Oh my god, how sorrowful, truly, the whole story is stomach turning. I hope he'll be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

Me too, Tora.

There are still so many things I don't understand.

For instance, can't a 42-year-old woman beat a 73-year-old man? He was an elder anyway.

The room was soundproof, but I still can't understand why the mother never suspected anything. Maybe she was involved in this as well?

The man raped his daughter for the first time when she was 11. Didn't the mother know that? Was she raped too and thought this was normal?

This whole issue is so dark.

One thing I can't understand is to have babies from your own daughter...what a shame...The whole picture is so shameful.

The world is sick! It's so sick, that news like this, shouldn't even be any issues, but just exactly because it's sick. Cases like that, will become to the issues. All ll the way up from issues into the bathroom tissues.
