Access Unlocked Tuesday January 16, 2018 After escaping from her Perris, California home, a seventeen (17) year-old girl calls 911 reporting child endangerment. Authorities arrive at the location and found twelve (12) other children being held captive. Some of the children were chained to their beds.
The parents forty-nine (49) year-old Louis Turpin and David Turpin age fifty-seven (57) were arrested and charged with child endangerment and torture. Both are facing a nine (9) million dollar bail.
The ages of the children ranged from two (2) to twenty-nine (29). According to reports, the kids appeared to be extremely younger than their age, due to malnourishment.
The children were home-schooled by the Turpins.
