Girl-in-the-cellar: Natascha Kampusch lives part-time at the house she was held captive in

Kidnapped Austrian woman Natascha Kampusch spends weekends at the house she was held captive.

Kidnapped Austrian woman Natascha Kampusch spends weekends at the house she was held captive, reports The Daily Mail.

Natascha was just 10-years-old when she was kidnapped and imprisoned for eight years for eight years by lunatic Wolfgang Priklopil.

Priklopil kept Natascha hidden away in a purpose-built cellar of his Vienna home where he used her as a sex slave for almost a decade until she escaped in 2006.

Priklopil, 44, threw himself under a train the same day Natascha fled and died immediately.

His estate was awarded to Natascha as compensation for her years of torture and now The Daily Mail reports the 28-year-old spends weekends at the house where she was held prisoner and has never again spoken to the woman who called the police to rescue her.

Natascha has been opening up about her story as she marks the 10 year anniversary of her escape.
