The cellar where Austria’s Josef Fritzl held his daughter for 24 years and fathered seven of her children is to be filled with cement.

Walter Anzboeck, who manages the Fritzl estate, said it should be filled within two weeks.

Fritzl’s daughter, Elisabeth, disappeared from Amstetten town in 1984, at 18, re-emerging in 2008. A court found Fritzl guilty of raping her thousands of times; he was sentenced to life in a prison psychiatric ward in 2009. Elisabeth and her children were given new identities.
