VIENNA, Austria (AP) -- Police have found a woman missing since 1984, who told authorities that her father had kept her in a cellar for almost 24 years and that she had given birth to seven children after being repeatedly raped by him.The 73-year-old father was taken into custody, Franz Polzer, head of the Lower Austrian Bureau of Criminal Affairs, told reporters Sunday.Authorities found the woman Saturday evening in the town of Amstetten following a tip, Lower Austria police said in a statement.The 42-year-old woman told police that her father began sexually abusing her when she was 11 and locked her in a room in the cellar on August 28, 1984.During the 24 years that followed, she said she was continually abused and gave birth to seven children, one of whom died several days later.Don't Miss

In 1996, she gave birth to twins but one died several days later because it was not appropriately cared for. Her father had then apparently removed the corpse from the cellar and burned it, the statement said.Police said in the statement that the woman appeared "greatly disturbed" psychologically during questioning. She agreed to talk only after authorities assured her that she would no longer have to have contact with her father and that her children would be taken care of.DNA tests are expected to determine whether the man is the father of the six surviving children, according to police.The Austria Press Agency said the three boys and three girls ranged in age from five to 20. One of the children, a 19-year-old woman, was being hospitalized in very serious condition, according to Austrian broadcaster ORF.Sunday's developments recalled another case that shocked Austrians in the summer of 2006, when a young woman escaped after being largely confined to a tiny underground dungeon in a quiet Vienna suburb for more than eight years.Natascha Kampusch was 10 years old when she was kidnapped in Vienna on her way to school in March 1998. Her abductor, Wolfgang Priklopil, threw himself in front of a train just hours after her dramatic escape

What the hell is wrong with people??
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, So love the people who treat you right, Forget the ones who don't, and believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.

Incest Dad: I Am Not A Monster
 
(AP) The man accused of imprisoning his daughter in a dungeon for 24 years and fathering seven children with her met for the first time with a prosecutor Wednesday and agreed to further questioning, an official said.

Meanwhile, Austria's justice minister acknowledged that authorities may have been gullible in their handling of Josef Fritzl when he reported his daughter missing nearly a quarter of a century ago.

Fritzl and prosecutor Christiane Burkheiser talked for about two hours Wednesday but did not discuss the allegations against him - that he raped his daughter for years, imprisoned her in his cellar, and fathered her seven children, St. Poelten prosecution spokesman Gerhard Sedlacek said.

Fritzl did agree to provide further testimony, Sedlacek said, adding that no more questioning is expected in the next two weeks.

Authorities say Fritzl, 73, initially confessed to holding daughter Elisabeth, now 42, and some of their seven children captive in a reinforced basement.

But Fritzl, who has not yet been charged, has not elaborated on the earlier confession. Sedlacek said he provided the prosecutor Wednesday with details about his background, including his career.

The underground family came to light April 19 when Elisabeth's oldest child, a 19-year-old woman, was hospitalized with a severe infection in Amstetten, west of Vienna.

Doctors, unable to find medical records for the woman, appealed on TV for her mother to come forward. Fritzl then accompanied Elisabeth to the hospital on April 26.

He subsequently told police that he had fathered seven children with Elisabeth - three kept all their lives in the cellar; one adopted by him and his wife; two others raised in the couple's custody; and one who died as an infant.

In an interview with the newspaper Der Standard, published Wednesday, Justice Minister Maria Berger hinted at shortcomings by local authorities, saying they may have shown a certain "gullibility" in accepting Fritzl's claim, when Elisabeth first disappeared in 1984, that she had run away to join a cult.

"Today, one would certainly pursue this more precisely," Berger told the newspaper, adding that she planned to increase pre-adoption checks.

Authorities in Lower Austria province have maintained that they acted appropriately.

Fritzl's lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, said his client had access to a television in jail and was closely watching coverage of his case, which has garnered worldwide attention.

Mayer said Fritzl was bothered by the fact that he was being made out to be a monster. He said Fritzl told him: "I'm only being portrayed as a monster and not as someone who committed monstrous acts."

Mayer made his comments when asked to confirm a report Wednesday by the newspaper Oesterreich that quoted Fritzl as saying he was not a monster and that without him, the 19-year-old would no longer be alive.

In Amstetten, specialists continued to sift through the Fritzl home for evidence.

Chief investigator Franz Polzer said in addition to the cellar, Fritzl had deemed several rooms of the vast house off limits to other people. These rooms are now being examined in detail, he said.

At some point, investigators are planning also to check the yard using sonar technology.

"We don't have any concrete reason to suspect there is anything else but we want to be absolutely sure," Polzer said, adding that investigators may also have detected additional, debris-filled spaces in the cellar.

In Vienna, Berger told parliament that what happened to the Amstetten victims "couldn't be made right" and stressed the need to better shield children from sex abuse.

Chancellor Alfred Gusenbauer and Vice Chancellor Wilhelm Molterer announced plans to tighten laws for sex offenders.

"We will boost prevention because it is most important that criminal offenses are averted," Gusenbauer said in a statement.

Fritzl reportedly was convicted of rape in 1967. On Wednesday, Gusenbauer said the federal government considered it "completely inconceivable" that a convicted sex offender was able to adopt a child, and that such individuals would be allowed to do jobs involving contact with children and adolescents.

A crowd of roughly 500 gathered in Amstetten's central square Wednesday evening to show their solidarity with the victims and express confidence in the future. They unrolled dozens of banners on which people had written encouraging messages and listened to speeches, such as one by local priest Peter Boesendorfer.

"May these banners remind us to work toward a better world," the Austria Press Agency quoted Boesendorfer as saying.

They adopted one of the children that he fathered? How could they get away with that?

They adopted one and had custody of two more I believe.  What I want to know is how his wife could not have known for 24 years that another family lived right below her?  He had to bring food in etc.  and I cannot believe that he never messed up in all that time and gave it away to his wife.  There has got to be more to that part of the story, no one is that deaf, dumb and blind.

She probably knew, and is just and sick and twisted as him.  Maybe it was her way of keeping him home, knowing where he was.  Sick.

VIENNA, Austria - An Austrian judge ruled Friday that a man suspected of keeping his daughter captive in a dungeon for more than two decades should remain in custody, an official said.

The decision extends Josef Fritzl's pretrial detention by a month, St. Poelten provincial court spokesman Franz Cutka said. It was made during a routine, closed-door session required under Austrian law and will be re-evaluated in June.

Fritzl's lawyer could not immediately be reached for reaction.

Fritzl, 73, was formally placed in confinement April 29. He had been detained three days earlier on suspicion of locking up his daughter Elisabeth for 24 years and fathering her seven children.

Authorities say Fritzl has told investigators three of the children were raised in a cellar at his home in Amstetten, three others were brought up above ground, and one died in infancy.
Prosecutors are investigating Fritzl for rape, incest, coercion and the death of the baby, though he has not been charged. Police say he has admitted incarceration and incest.

The head of the police investigation, Franz Polzer, told Reuters on Friday the house above the cellar, in the small town of Amstetten, was being minutely examined.

Fritzl's alleged double life began to fall apart when Elisabeth's oldest child, a 19-year-old woman, was hospitalized with a severe infection.

Unable to find medical records for the woman, doctors appealed for her mother to come forward. Fritzl accompanied Elisabeth to the hospital April 26 and was detained after she divulged what had allegedly happened to her.

'Must have been crazy'
In comments relayed through his lawyer and published in the Austrian magazine News on Thursday, Fritzl was quoted as saying he knew it was wrong to hold his daughter captive and that he "must have been crazy" for doing so. He added that he tried to care for her and their children as best as he could by taking them flowers, toys and books, according to the interview.

Police on Friday said their investigation on the grounds and the cellar was largely complete except for some specialist electrical and electronic examination.

"We have been using sniffer dogs and ground radar in order not to have to dig up the whole area," Polzer said.

Police still believe Fritzl had no other secret hideaways. "This prison was so complex, so extensive that this exhausted Mr. Fritzl's capabilities," Polzer added.

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Can't believe that Mrs. Fritzl isn't jailed as an accomplice.  I know every inch of my house and she apparently didn't know her husband built a prison under hers?
