Rudolf Munchenfurburger, lawyer of Austrian sicko and convicted rapist, Josef 'Mengele' Fritzl, has claimed his client is mentally ill. This crushes the previous public perception that Fritzl was just a nice old boy being a tad 'over protective'.
Fritzl, who imprisoned his own daughter in a basement dungeon, repeatedly raping her for 24 years, in the process fathering seven subterranean web-footed monkey children. Munchenfurburger added "I can't really see what all the fuss is about to be honest. Josef is a top bloke when you get to know him. Elisabeth stepped on his newly completed Airfix model of a Messerschmitt Bf109 back in 1984, so what did she expect? She was asking for it". Friend and neighbour Andreas Cretin added "Josef did a lot for that girl and she's just thrown it back in his face! He always brought her and the kids gifts back from his holidays in Thailand".
Fritzl's wife, Schnitzl, added "I seem to remember he was pretty upset about his little model aeroplane getting stepped on. I never had the heart to tell him it was me". She went on "I did think it was odd how many large snacks Josef used to take down with him to the cellar. We did shitloads of shopping but we never had f*** all in!"
Fritzl is in police custody awaiting trial. "We are confident of a swift acquittal" said Munchenfurburger, "Josef has a new Philipino bitch on order and she's being delivered next week"
