13 Children Hospitalized, Parents Jailed on Torture Charges

Recommended Posts

Quote

A Perris, California, mother and father are behind bars Monday after one of their children escaped their home and reported to sheriff's deputies that 12 of her siblings were still being held captive at their home, some of them shackled with chains and padlocks to their beds.

 

All of the children appeared malnourished when they were found Sunday, some so severely that deputies initially believed the adult children to be kids, according to a statement from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

 

David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, have been booked on charges of torture and child endangerment. They are each being held in lieu of $9 million bail.

According to the sheriff's department, a 17-year-old girl fled the house in the 100 block of Muir Woods Road early Sunday morning and was able to call 911 using a cellphone she had taken from the home.

 

Despite her age, deputies at first believed her to be around 10 years old because of she was emaciated and malnourished.

 

At the home, deputies found children shackled to beds in "dark and foul-smelling surroundings."

 

"Deputies located what they believed to be 12 children inside the house, but were shocked to discover that 7 of them were actually adults, ranging in age from 18 to 29," police said in the statement. "The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty."

 

NBC Los Angeles has reached out to the Turpins' attorney for comment.

 

Neighbors say that the family kept to themselves, and when the children did come out, they did not look healthy.

 

"They looked very unnutrioned [sic], very white, like they never got sun at all," Wendy Martinez said. "I mean, they would never come out and when they did, the lady would stand there watching them."

 

Real estate records also reveal that Sandcastle Day School - a private school owned by David Turpin - is located at the couple's home.

 

The couple's victims range in age from 2 to 29 years old. All of them have been hospitalized.

That's disgusting. How can people do that to other people, let alone their own kids. Profit motivated in addition to the obvious mental health issues? Were they able to claim thousands of dollars in California child grants over those years? They should never see the light of day again. Here's a puppy:

These two losers are absolute garbage and don't belong in society. The only outcome for them should be spending the rest of their miserable lives locked up.

Sadly, I think the fact that some of them are adults says that the damage has indeed been done.

 

There were reports of neighbors saying that on the infrequent occasions when they'd see the kids, they wouldn't speak, or make eye contact with them. Sounds like a lot of therapy is going to be needed.

If there is a crazy gene, the chances that one of these children (if not all of them) have it is extremely high. So sad.

Are these 13 victims all biological children of the two evil people?  I'm wondering if these two guilty LOSERS were foster parents, and collecting money from the state for doing so?  The lady loser seems a bit old for the 2 year old, no?

There's not much to be done about the situation, the puppy somewhat prevented an irrational rage from forming. Maybe this dog will adopt the kids:

Jail the good neighbours.

 

Humans needs to start acting on mental health concerns.

 

Put everything in the open and don’t just assume the story will have a happy ending.

 

The West is full of virtue signalling on behalf of others and against a boogie man threat, while real, actual strife and oppression is living next door. Put your money where your mouth is, people. This is why I don’t read or watch the news anymore. Depressing and memoralizing to be a human. 

 

Look at those people. Do they look sane? Those are the eyes of the deeply troubled. How did this go on for so long?
