SKY NEWS: “Often at the scene of crimes like this, people are open and welcoming to the media, willing to talk.But after a day or two they start to get suspicious and hostile and worry how they and their community are being portrayed.”

ELLEE SEYMOUR: “How could Rosemarie Fritzl know nothing?”

I wonder what would have happened to those pitiful, helpless prisoners if their wicked captor had died suddenly, would they simply have been left to rot in the cellar?

DAILY EXPRESS“Austrian police today revealed that DNA taken from the six children of caged Elisabeth Fritzl proved sick Josef was the biological father.”

THE TIMES: “The (DNA test) result… shows that the six children, which the unfortunate Elisabeth Fritzl gave birth to in the basement, have all been undoubtedly fathered by her own father, the now 73-year-old Josef Fritzl,” says Colonel Franz Polzer, head of the criminal investigation unit in Lower Austria.

THE INDEPENDENT: “Prosecutors said they were investigating Fritzl over the death of the seventh child and that he could face a charge of killing the child through neglect.”

“Josef F. is being investigated for murder by failing to render assistance,” local chief public prosecutor Peter Ficenc told Reuters.

THIS IS LONDON: “Pictured: Incest father on ‘boys holiday’ to Thailand as his captives languish in his secret dungeon thousands of miles away”

The evil father who locked up his daughter in a cellar for 24 years and fathered her seven children was pictured on a ‘boys holiday’ to Thailand in the 1990s, it has been revealed. Josep Friztl is believed to have stockpiled food in the dungeon where Elisabeth and her three children were being held.

The four were expected to survive alone for up to two weeks until Fritzl returned. Snaps of the electrical engineer enjoying himself were made public for the first time today…

They come as it was revealed that Fritzl has told police he acted alone. He has told detectives he was not helped to keep his Elisabeth and their children hidden in his cramped basement.

But police are not yet convinced he is telling the truth and are investigating how he could have bought food and clothes for them without anyone suspecting.

And Elisabeth Fritzl?

Elisabeth Fritzl, now 42, met her mother Rosemarie for the first time in almost a quarter-of-a-century last night after finally escaping her father Josef’s clutches. Police revealed the meeting as they announced DNA tests had confirmed Fritzl was the father to all seven of Elisabeth’s children.

Mrs Fritzl is said to have broken down in tears at the meeting just miles from the home she shared with her husband, where her daughter and grandchildren were incarcerated in a windowless dungeon.

All of Elisabeth’s children, apart from daughter Kerstin who is in a critical condition, were also at the reunion at the Mostviertel psychiatric clinic.

The rest of the children are said to be “quite well”. Any organ publishing pictures of them will be fined £25,000 euros…
