Austrian Josef Fritzl is known as the “Monster of Amstetten” after he was arrested for keeping his daughter Elisabeth Fritzl captive in their basement for 24 years and fathering seven children with her, and RadarOnline.com has learned he is a Charlie Sheen fan.
“My favorite show is Two and a Half Men with Charlie Sheen. The little boy who plays along reminds me of my son,” Fritzl told Austrian news publication Bild.de.
“It relaxes me, I need to laugh. But it destroys the soul, if you are always sad.”
According to the report, Fritzl is being held at a high-security prison with 900 inmates, 90 of which have been deemed “mentally-disturbed offenders.”
“I’m world famous,” Fritzl said.
“Two officers are always with me for my protection,” Fritzl said. Being a sex offender makes him a target for inner-prison violence making management afraid for his life.
Fritzl, 75, was sentenced to life in prison in April 2008 for murder, slavery, imprisonment, serious assault, incest and raping his daughter an estimated 3,000 times.
“I have written her eight letters. I never got a response. But I know she still loves me always,” Fritzl said of his wife of 55 years.
His wife and 13 children have yet to visit him in jail.
