Single dad arrested for fathering kids with daughter (Vassoura de Botao, Brazil)

UNNAMED DAD has been arrested on allegations he fathered two children with his own daughter. It appears that the daughter has been locked up for 12 years by Daddy Dearest--shortly after her own mother "disappeared." The daughter has been lead to believe that the mother "abandoned" her and her siblings to this abuser. That may be. It is also likely that she met some other fate in the hands of a man like this. Wouldn't be the first time a domestic "disappearance" was actually a murder.

A 50-year-old Brazilian man has been arrested on allegations he fathered two children with his own daughter, whom he was said to have kept locked up for 12 years, media reported Wednesday.

The 26-year-old daughter was freed Tuesday by police who received an anonymous tipoff in the remote northeastern town of Vassoura de Botao.

"The victim said she and her four siblings were abandoned by their mother when she was 11, and from the age of 14 she was kept locked up and suffered abuse from her father," police chief Leonardo do Nascimento Diniz said. "At 22 she had her first daughter from the forced relations with her father and then, last year, she had another baby," he said.

The arrested man has confessed to the crime, Diniz said.

One child was found with the freed woman. The other was given to another family to look after.
