    (April 9, 1935- )
    Born in Amstetten, Austria
    Accused by his daughter Elisabeth of abuse beginning in 1977 when she was 11 years old
    Imprisoned Elisabeth in the cellar of the family home (which he soundproofed) between August 1984 and April 2008
    Fathered seven children with Elisabeth during repeated rapes
    Three of the children adopted by him and his wife and lived in the home, another three lived in the cellar dungeon and never saw daylight
    A 7th child died three days after birth (one of twins) and was incinerated by him
    Abuse uncovered when oldest child he fathered with Elisabeth, 19-year-old Kerstin, became seriously ill and was taken by him to the hospital
    April 28, 2008, confessed to imprisoning his daughter for 24 years and fathering her seven children (DNA tests confirmed this)
    Charged with sexual abuse, incest and abduction with a possible extra charge of murder by negligence
    This guy gives monsters a bad name.
    He spent 18 months in prison for a 1967 rape he committed.
    He ruled his family with an 'iron hand in an iron glove.'
    He successfully convinced all involved that Elisabeth had run away to join a cult.
    He incredibly found a way to keep his wife, Elisabeth's siblings and three of her kids unaware that she and three other kids were living below them.
    He had Elisabeth write three separate notes attached to three of her kids he left at the family doorstep 'for adoption,' and his wife didn't think anything of it.
    He even rented space out of the house for borders who paid rent and were told not to go near the cellar, a rule they all heeded.
    He will never be a finalist for any 'Father of the Year' competition.
    He was an electrical engineer whom coworkers described as 'brilliant' and 'dedicated.'
    He unbelievably took his daughter/granddaughter Kerstin to the hospital with life threatening organ failure, and thereby had his whole secret world exposed.
    He then took Elisabeth to see her daughter at the hospital, where she told her horrific story under the condition she never had to see him again (authorities agreed).
    The entire family (minus him) has been reunited and are being helped by specialists to try to sort through the Hell on Earth they've endured and begin some form of healing process.
