London, Dec 30 (ANI): Elisabeth Fritzl, the Austrian woman allegedly held as a sex slave by her father for 24 years, and her incest kids have left the clinic where they had been recovering since being freed in April, it has emerged.

Prosecuting lawyer Christoph Herbst said that Fritzl’’s daughter and six of the seven children he fathered with her while holding her captive have moved to a secret location from the psychiatric clinic, reports the Daily Express.

Fritzl faces trial in early 2009 on charges of kidnapping Elisabeth, now 42, when she was 18 and holding her captive in a bunker in his back garden.

He is also charged with slavery, rape and the murder of one child.

That child - his seventh with Elisabeth - was born in the underground chamber in Amstetten, west of Vienna, but died in infancy.

Fritzl, 73, has been in custody since the case came to light in April, when Elisabeth’’s eldest daughter, Kerstin, was taken to hospital suffering from kidney failure.

Three of her surviving children grew up in the cellar, without ever seeing daylight, while the three others were brought up by Fritzl’’s wife. (ANI)
