Brit Arrested For Murder In Fritzl Hometown

Brit Arrested For Murder In Fritzl Hometown

A British man has been arrested on a suspected murder charge over the stabbing death of a love rival in the Austrian town that was the home of incest monster Josef Fritzl.

Roman Topf, 39, was found with two stab wounds in a courtyard of the house in the Lower Austrian town of Amstetten, the same town where Josef Fritzl locked up his daughter for 24 years and repeatedly raped her - producing seven children in the process.

Austrian police said they had arrested 36-year-old British man Raphael Andrew Diemoz (from Bradford, born 25/6/77) over the murder of the 39-year-old, who died from two stab wounds.

Police also recovered two blood stained knives when they arrested the British man, who was taken into custody in the nearby prison in St Poelten.

Austrian media reports the British man ctold police he had been threatened by the older man with the knives, and had managed to disarm him and then use the knives to stab Topf twice in the neck.

According to police the killing followed a heavy drinking session in the courtyard where the two, together with a waitress that both had a crush on, were celebrating the birthday of a third man, and at 2am the group had relocated to the apartment owned by the 30-year-old waitress.

But the Brit and the 39-year-old had both vied for the attention of the waitress, who had become fed up with the pair of them, and ordered all three to leave.

A short while later the older man was dead.

Another person living in the building discovered the victim's body lying on a blood stained bench in the morning, and called the police.
