Austrian “Incest Monster” Josef Fritzl Took Sex-Holidays In Pattaya While His Offspring La

It was revealed, yesterday, that the man variously described as a "depraved father" and "an incest monster", Josef Fritzl, the 73-year-old retired Austrian electrical engineer ,had holidayed in Thailand, specifically in Pattaya, with his lodger, Alfred Dubanovsky, on more than one occasion, while his daughter and their offspring languished in the cellar back home in Amstetten, Austria.

The London Paper comments” Fritzl was a sun-lover, taking trips to warm destinations to expose himself to as much sunlight as possible ? despite never letting three of the seven children he fathered by his daughter see daylight. He began leaving his wife Rosemarie behind to go on “boys only” trips to Thailand in the 1980s, spending up to three weeks at a time on his exotic jaunts to a country known for its child-sex -trade.”

Significantly, at least one of these Thai locations was Fun City. According to the Telegraph Newspaper, UK, “Fritzl also took several sex holidays to Thailand, once leaving them for nearly a month. He was filmed happily being given a back massage by a local woman on the beach at Pattaya.” Fritzl’s lodger had also apparently advised his “depraved” landlord that it was easy to obtain drugs in Thailand, to which Fritzl replied that they should think about the affect of such things on young children!

Mr Dubanovsky, rented a room in the Fritzl house for 12 years, yet maintained that he was ignorant of the infamous goings on in the cellar. When he asked Fritzl what the various noses, bangings etc. emitting from the lower part of the house were, he had been told it was the plumbing.

He and other lodgers were apparently forbidden from going down to the cellar under threat of eviction, however, he had seen another man go to the cellar where the abuse happened. Alfred Dubanovsky told the BBC the man was introduced as a plumber, contradicting earlier assertions that Fritzl had acted alone.

Apart from using his daughter, now 42, as a sex-slave, sexually abusing and imprisoning her in the cellar of the family home for 24 years, and fathering seven children by her, three of whom grew up with her in the windowless dungeon, evidence is now emerging that Fritzl may now be implicated in a murder of a missing female, Martina Posch, 17. Snificantly, The Telegraph reported local detectives as saying that Martina ” bore a striking resemblance to Elisabeth, who was imprisoned in 1984 when she was 18.” Local police chief Alois Lissl said: “What really stands out is that Martina looks similar to Fritzl’s daughter. The likeness is incredible,” The Telegraph reported.

Fritzl’s lawyer, Mr Mayer apparently said: “He is a shattered and ruined man, emotionally broken,” and that Fritzl currently feared for his life in gaol and would apply for bail. He is refusing to speak to police.

Further outrages coming to light, include the fact, reported in The Times, that Josef Fritzl had told his victim-offspring that they would be gassed to death if anything happened to him, investigators say.

However, Mr Greiner Helmut Greiner, a spokesman for Austria’s Federal Bureau of Investigations qualified this, saying “It may have just been an empty threat to intimidate the captive woman and her children into not trying to overpower him,”

In the first interview by a member of Mr Fritzl’s extended family, his sister-in-law has revealed that the “incest monster” often spent the whole night with his daughter and their children in the dungeon under the house. The woman, named only as Christine R, 56, maintained that Mr Fritzl made daily visits to his cellar on the pretext that he had work to do and would tell other family members, including his wife Rosemarie, that he didn’t wish to be disturbed.

The children of the unholy union, although valiantly tutored by their mother, Elizabeth and exposed to TV, grew up virtually albino from the lack of sun-exposure and almost feral. Austrian police chief Leopold Etz is reported to have said: “They communicate with noises that are a mixture of growling and cooing. ” Although, they apparently could make themselves relatively understood as Felix, 5, who along with his siblings, Kerstin, 19, Stefan, 18, had never seen the true light of day, when he first emerged from his dungeon-incarceration and saw the moon for the first time in his life, pointed and said: “Is that God up there?”
