Josef Fritzl complained today about receiving bad press since admitting to keeping an incestuous second family locked in his Austrian cellar, the Telegraph reports. "I am no monster," Fritzl said through his lawyer, calling his treatment “unfair” and calling the media's narrative “entirely one-dimensional” because it neglected the fact that he kept his dungeon family alive for over 20 years.
“I could have killed all of them, and no one would have known. No one would have ever found about it,” the 73-year-old said. He also defended the treatment of his 19-year-old granddaughter/daughter, hospitalized with organ failure. “Kerstin would not be alive today if it wasn’t for me. I have made sure that she gets to a hospital.”
