Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man who fathered seven children with his daughter while keeping her imprisoned in a windowless dungeon in his cellar, has complained about poor media coverage of the case.
His criticism of the international media’s reporting was published in the German tabloid Bild Zeitung.
“I could have killed them all,” reads the front page headline of today’s Bild Zeitung. And Fritzl, dubbed a monster by the Austrian media, told his lawyer, Rudolf Mayer, “I’m not a monster,” according to today’s report.
I hope that means he won’t complain that being locked in solitary for the next 350 years or so is cruel and unusual punishment.
