London, Sept 26 : Austrian incest fiend Josef Fritzl has returned to his house of horror for the first time since his arrest.
The 72-year-old was released from jail yesterday for the visit.
He was also questioned over the grim secrets of the cellar where he imprisoned and raped daughter Elisabeth for 24 years. While on his way back home, Josef was calmly reading a book.
He then used it to cover his face as he walked up the drive.
"He had lost a lot of hair. Other than that he looked pretty similar," the Sun quoted a neighbour, as saying.
Fritzl kept Elisabeth, 42, as a sex slave and fathered her seven children, one of whom died, in Amstetten, Austria.
Three of the kids lived upstairs with Fritzl and his wife Rosemarie, 69.
Police kept Fritzl at the house - which has 66 rooms - for three hours.
He was asked why he made structural changes to the layout of the building. Later he was taken into the garden.
The neighbour said: "He didn't show any emotion. He talked to the police who were pointing things out in the garden, then they went inside again."
Fritzl's secret dungeon was entered through eight locked doors, many fitted with alarms and sensors.
According to senior legal sources, Fritzl faces up to 3,000 rape charges.
