Of course, disgusting and nasty, one question. I read an article, iht.com/articles/2009/03/18/europe/austria.php that this sort of thing also happened in 2006 with Natasha Kampusch in Austria. I’ve never heard of this sort of thing before, except perhaps My imam father came after me with an axe forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=320795. Why do people do things such as this? What do you think is the explanation for these things happening?

I have no idea why people do these things other than original sin.

Fritzl has been sentenced to life, to be served in a psychiatric facility.
