Beast Seeks Beauty: Josef Fritzl Asks Guard for Anti-Ageing Face Cream
Cellar monster Josef Fritzl has asked his prison doctor for a supply of anti-ageing face cream.
The 73-year-old, who locked his daughter Elisabeth underground for 24 years and fathered seven children by her, has also been complaining about a variety of problems, ranging from chest pains to stomach ache.
Prison officials said yesterday he avidly followed TV and press reports about his case. Jail spokesman Erich Huber-Guensthofer said: "To be honest, other than the trips to the doctor and the request for face creams, Fritzl doesn't give us any trouble.
"You would hardly know that he was there.
"He has never complained about the food. If the weather is really nice, he takes a short walk in the prison courtyard."
He confirmed that Fritzl had the TV running in his cell all the time and hardly ever missed a report about himself.
When there was nothing on TV he was reading old newspaper reports about himself and his crimes.
The details of his prison life emerged as daughter Elisabeth, 42, began giving detailed evidence to prosecutors about how her father locked her up and raped her in the dungeon he made in Amstetten in Austria.
She has told how he left her alone for three days after she gave birth to twins.
