Incest dad's rented flat on e-Bay

ST. POLTEN, Austria, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- A tenant of Josef Fritzl, the Austrian man accused of using his daughter as a sex slave, is offering tourists a chance to stay in his apartment.

Anton Kraushofer hopes to get about $1,000 a night and has put the apartment on eBay, The Sun reports. Kraushofer told the British tabloid he got the idea after learning hotels in Sankt Polten, where Fritzl is to be tried, are already fully reserved for the five-day proceedings.

The building, which includes seven apartments, a pizzeria and a shoe store, is also up for sale. Fritzl was declared bankrupt Monday.

Fritzl kept his daughter in a dungeon under his home in Amstetten for more than 20 years and fathered seven children with her. One boy died, and Fritzl is charged with killing the child by failing to get medical treatment.

Kraushofer said Fritzl was in his apartment many times, often to do maintenance work.

"He was a neat, completely normal looking pensioner -- always friendly and kind," Kraushofer said. "He probably was a bit wealthy because he was driving a Mercedes."
