Walter Anzboeck, the liquidator of Josef Fritzl’s estate said the cellar of the house where Fritzl imprisoned and repeatedly raped his daughter for 24 years will be filled up with concrete.
Anzboeck said the move was to ensure the space could never be entered again. He said in a statement on Friday that concrete will be pumped into the basement early next year, once town authorities in Amstetten, Lower Austria, issue a permit.
76-year-old Fritzl was sentenced to life in prison two years ago after being convicted of holding his daughter captive in a windowless cellar, fathering her seven children and for responsibility in the death of one of them.
No decision has yet been made about whether the house should be torn down.
