Vienna – APA. Josef Fritzl has admitted he kept his own mother bricked up in a sealed room until she died to extract revenge for the years of abuse he claims he received at her hands. APA reports quoting the Daily Mail that he made the astonishing revelations in one of a series of meetings he had with a woman psychologist preparing an expert report in advance of his trial set to take place in February.
He told Adelheid Kastner that he had tried very hard to love his mother but as he grew older that love had turned to hatred and he had extracted revenge.
He said: ’She raised me unknown but I never had any love from her. She used to beat me, hit me until I was lying in a pool of blood on the floor. It left me feeling totally humiliated and weak.’
Fritzl added: ’My mother was a servant and she used to work hard all her life, I never had a kiss from her, I was never cuddled although I wanted it - I wanted that she would be good to me. But the only thing she ever did with me was to go to the church.’
He then admitted that years later he had taken revenge for the injustices he had suffered when he had locked his mother up.
He said: ’I locked her up in a room at the top of the house. I then bricked in the window so that she never again saw the light of day.’
She died in 1980.
Asked if that had given him the idea for locking up Elisabeth he said: ’To be honest I just didn’t think about it, about her being my daughter, I saw her as my wife and as my partner.’
Fritzl had seven children with his wife Rosemarie and seven children with Elisabeth during the 24 years she was imprisoned under ground - one of whom died and was burned by Fritzl in an incinerator.
The psychologist said he was not insane and was fully aware that what he was doing was wrong and was answerable for his actions.
