Hundreds of people have held an emotional candlelit vigil in the Austrian town where Josef Fritzl kept his daughter in a cellar for 24 years.
The residents of Amstetten were showing solidarity for the woman, Elisabeth, and the children she bore him. “We want to show that Amstetten is not a town for criminals”, said the mayor.
Police say DNA evidence confirms Mr. Fritzl’s confession that he is the father of his daughter Elisabeth’s six surviving children. Several hundred people gathered for an emotional tribute on Tuesday evening to Mr. Fritzl’s family. The event was organized by a local convent school. Children, their parents, teachers and nuns lit candles and stood in the rain to express their solidarity and outrage.
