The boarding house above the cellar where Josef Fritzl subjected his daughter, Elisabeth, to 24 years of rape and abuse has been turned into apartments – and the new landlords are looking for tenants.
It was beneath the house that engineer Fritzl carved out a secret cellar behind eight locked doors and held his daughter captive there between 1984 and 2008.
She was repeatedly raped and gave birth to seven children. The corpse of one – who died because Fritzl refused to fetch a doctor – was added to the boiler.
Now a couple have bought the 25-room property and transformed it from a ghoulish crime scene to modern apartments.
But unlike most Austrian residences, there is no basement – it was filled in with concrete to prevent it ever becoming a spooky shrine.
Elisabeth now lives with her children under a pseudonym in a tiny Austrian hamlet while her father serves life imprisonment.
