Cellar incest victim Elisabeth Fritzl has finally found love with one of the young minders hired to guard her, it emerged today (Mon).
Blissful Elisabeth, who spent 24 years as her evil father Josef's sex slave, has moved the bodyguard into the home at a secret address in a small Austrian town that she shares with her six children.
The bodyguard was named German newspaper Bild as Thomas W., one of a team of protectors employed to guard Elisabeth, 43, and her family since her rescue from the house of horrors.
Local media reported that he is "much younger" than head-over-heels in love Elisabeth, who has never had a proper relationship since she was imprisoned by her pervert father as a teenager under the family home in Amstetten, Lower Austria.
The minder had been working for the security company who was appointed to support police bodyguards after Elisabeth and the six children she bore her father were released.
Elisabeth Fritzl's family have refused to comment on her new love.
She is understood to have passed her driving test and has signed herself off from doctors who were assessing her emotional stability since her release.
Incest monster Josef Fritzl, 74, is currently in Mittersteig prison in Vienna for a two-month psychiatric assessment which will decide where he serves his sentence.
He was sentenced to life imprisonment in March after pleading guilty to the murder of the infant son he fathered by Elisabeth.
