Israeli woman 26 escapes Thomas Fischers DIY torture chamber in Germany - 24th Aug 2011

A man described as a ‘cold sadist’ imprisoned a woman in his home-made torture chamber rigged with eight bombs designed to detonate when he had finished with her.

Thomas Fischer, 30, turned his tiny flat into a terrifying lair in which he had installed an old soundproofed telephone box to lock up his victim.

He used an assortment of scalpels, needles and syringes to practise with on a mannequin before snatching the woman off a street in Hamburg.

But while it appeared he had been planning to imprison her for a number of months, she was only in his clutches for two hours – after he forgot to lock the door to the ‘cell’.

The 26-year-old victim, who was handcuffed, managed to flee by lunging through a window of the ground-floor flat.

Fischer tore into the street after her but she outran him and fled to the safety of a friend’s home.
