I wonder what kind of physical problems from the inbreeding as well.

The odds of birth defects in a child resulting from sex between two people with identical genes (brother/sister) is about 50%. The determination of whether the child will be normal or a monster is literally a coin flip. The odds actually go down quite a bit when you're talking about father/daughter, because the daughter only shares half of the fathers genes. On average, 1 in 4 children from father/daughter incest will have some kind of noticeable birth defect. Obviously, these numbers compound if you do it generation after generation.

I'm assuming that the dead baby was the result of birth defects, so with six additional children the odds are decent that at least one or two will have some sort of physical disability. It's also possible that, with only a 25% chance of deformity per birth, the remainder got lucky. There's no way for us to know right now.

No, I'm not a pervert, I just watch too much TV.
