Man investigated for allegedly raping his mentally disabled daughters

An 80-year old Austrian man is being investigated for allegedly sexually abusing his wife and his two mentally disabled daughters for more than 40 years, police and a prosecutor said Thursday.

The man's wife died three years ago, investigators said, but the daughters still lived with their father in the northwestern town of Braunau.

"He isolated the two women from the outside world for all the time," said Ernestine Heger, one of the prosecutors in the case.

    I thought this mostly happened in Utah amongst the Romney Mormons.

    I wonder if Mittt Rumney really will be our next preserdnet? It would be cool to have a mormon one.

    This is horrific.
    What is going on in Austria?
    Those poor, poor girls.
    My heart goes out to them.

    I'm inclined to think this is coincidence – though it sounds a lot like the Fritzl story. Hopefully nothing in the water in Austria.

    What the heck is wrong with people today ? Almost every day now you are hearing of some sort of abuse case. Have we as a people become that depraved ? It almost makes a person ashamed to admit they are part of the human race.

    I agree, bobcat2u.
    I wouldn't put these kind of animals in the "human" category, though.

    I hate to scare the daylights out of everyone, but these are just the cases we hear about. How many others are there that go on for years and no one ever finds out. Hopefully none, but I can't help but wonder.
