The head of the criminal affairs bureau in the province of Lower Austria, Franz Polzer, said that Josef F had confessed during questioning on Monday. Authorities are caring for the daughter and her six surviving children.
Earlier, police released photos of the man’s basement which showed concealed a network of tiny windowless chambers. The rooms were equipped for sleeping and cooking, and with sanitary facilities, they added.
Admitting doesn’t automatically bring forgiveness if ever this girl and her kids will be able to forget and forgive!
