The Brazilian Fritzl - Jose Agostinho Pereira
How many "Fritzl" out there???
Well, another "Fritzl" has been uncovered, this time in Brazil.
Jose Agostinho Pereira, 54, kept his own daughter prisoner for 12 years, in a 2-room shack in a remote fishing village in Pinheiro, Brazil.
During that period, Pereira fathered 7 children with her, aged between 2 yrs old to 12 yrs old who are malnourished and can barely communicate.
Pereira was arrested after the local police were tipped by an anonymous call.
This latest case has chilling echoes of Austrian cellar monster Josef Fritzl.
Fritzl, 75, was jailed last year for locking up his daughter Elisabeth for 24 years in an underground cellarand fathering 7 children with her.
Hence, all cases of similar natures are now being reffered as "Fritzl".
It depends on the country of origins - we have heard cases of the Italian Fritzl, The Australian Fritzl and now the Brazilian Fritzl.!!!!
Is there any Argentine Fritzl???
