Then I passed through some news stories, and a truly, macabre, horror story struck me. Certainly, not the kind to read on an early Monday morning, but life does not give us such relief.
AMSTETTEN, Austria (CNN) -- Austrian police were Monday investigating the case of a 73-year-old man who they believe held his daughter captive in his cellar for 24 years and fathered at least six children with her.
The woman, identified as 42-year-old Elisabeth F., has been missing since 1984, when she was 18 years old, police said at a news conference.

A true horror story.
