The house where an Austrian man locked up his daughter for 24 years and secretly fathered seven children with her could soon be torn down.

Josef Fritzl's court appointed liquidator, Walter Anzboeck, told The Associated Press by e-mail Wednesday that he's submitted a request to local authorities to demolish the boarded-up gray concrete building in the town of Amstetten. He did not provide more details.

Fritzl made headlines around the world when his crime surfaced in April 2008. He is serving a life sentence.
