London, Feb 16 (ANI): Dungeon dad Josef Fritzl is all set to cash in on the story of his crime by auctioning it for the highest bidder, so that he could get money to ensure "a secure future" for his incest children.
The Austrian sex beast captured his daughter Elisabeth, 42 in an underground cellar, raped her for 24 long years, and fathered eight children with her.
The 74-year-old incest father is also selling his property empire at rock bottom prices, so that he could raise cash for his family.
Walter Anzboeck is the lawyer assigned to act as liquidator for Fritzl's insolvent real estate businesses.
"Fritzl is ready to open up and reveal everything about his motives and the background of the case if it helps to care for his family," the Scotsman quoted Anzboeck as saying.
He also said he was aware that it was a "very sensitive matter", and even reassured that nothing would be released into the public domain without the permission of court, the family, the creditors and the victims' lawyer.
Although Austria has laws against criminals being paid for their life stories, Anzboeck claimed Fritzl would not get any money for his revelations and any payment will be directly given to his daughter and the children.
According to reports, Fritzl is asking for over 500,000 pounds for his story.
Anzboeck said that there had been "many" requests from foreign media, and TV stations were desperate for the rights to make a film or a documentary about the case.
The lawyer further stressed that there was no chance to ensure the family's financial future without such media tie-ups.
Fritzl is scheduled to stand trial from 16 March in St Poelten, the town where he has been held on remand ever since the cellar was discovered in April last year.
He faces charges of murder, rape, slavery, incest, imprisonment and abuse. (ANI)
