Dungeon dad tricked daughter into building her own cellMay 5th, 2008 - 1:06 pm ICT by admin
London, May 5 (ANI): Austrian incest dad Josef Fritzl tricked his daughter into building her own dungeon, it has emerged.
Fritzl ordered unsuspecting Elisabeth to help him fit a steel and concrete door to the cellar where she was to be imprisoned for 24 years.
And just minutes later, he pushed her into the basement room, drugged and raped her, and then locked her up.
After regaining consciousness, 18-year-old Elisabeth realised that she was handcuffed to a wall and had built her own cell.
Fritzl used a handkerchief soaked in ether to drug Elisabeth, who was put on a dog leash chain for the next six to nine months, which let her reach the toilet.
Fritzl fathered seven kids by Elisabeth after repeatedly raping her, reports The Sun.
Elisabeth, 42, told police her dad demanded sex at least once every three days for the first 12 years.
Fritzl sought his daughters help once more to build extra underground rooms for his growing clan of cave children.
Meanwhile a former lodger at the home of Elisabeth and her school friends has admitted that he knew that Fritzl was raping her.
However, he didnt contact police or social services either before or after she disappeared.
Joseph Leitner, one of Fritzls former lodger, told how Elisabeth fled home at 17 but was found by fathera year before he imprisoned her. (ANI)
