"AMSTETTEN, Austria - Police are looking into possible links between a young woman's killing and the man who confessed to holding his daughter captive for 24 years and fathering her seven children, a senior law enforcement official said Wednesday. Alois Lissl, the chief of police of Upper Austria province, told The Associated Press that although no evidence had surfaced so far, police have widened their investigation into the unsolved murder 22 years ago to include the incest suspect."

I agree, nothing would surprise me about him after learning what we have so far. If he was successful in keeping his daughter locked up unknown to everyone else for 24 years and fathering six children with her, I doubt there is much of anything that he's NOT capable of. Sometimes I just don't want to live in this world anymore. Makes you wonder about mankind.

This case is scary. Given what they know about what he's done to his daugther, I believe they are doing the right thing by looking into the murder of the teen in 1986. He may not have been involved, but given his long track record, it's very likely that he was.

It sounds like Mr F has been doing a little more than raping his daughter and holding her captive. I am not surprised that he is suspected of another murder. The guy is right off the deep end. I can't believe that no one knew what was going on. Now that I read his wife owned a campground and partially owned an inn I think she must be somewhat normal with a normal IQ so why was she so blind to what was happening? This story fascinates me to no end.

Good grief. This guy keeps getting scarier and scarier. This is one of the most disturbing cases in my mind. Can you imagine being a child and never, ever having seen the light of day...even by the age of 19? I think the oldest kid is 19. That is outrageous. Imagine your first vision of sunlight, trees, flowers, grass, lakes, rivers, streams, the ocean, and the blue sky or clouds. The sensory overload those kids must be experiencing must be terrifying and overwhelming.
