27 January 2018

Mr Lambert has disowned his sister following the sickening allegations brought against her and David Turpin.

They said their mother Phyllis allowed Louise to date David even though he was eight years her senior, but was too afraid to tell her husband Wayne, a preacher.

Sheriff's deputies were shocked by the girl's small size and emaciated appearance, thinking she was only 10.

David Turpin, 56, and Louise Turpin, 49, lived with their children between ages 2 and 29 in Perris, southeast of Los Angeles.

"The 17-year-old victim that escaped had been working on a plan with the siblings to escape this abuse for more than two years", he added.

"They made it all the way to Texas before the police stopped them", Teresa told DailyMailTV. "They're very co-operative, and I believe they are hopeful that life will get better for them".

The parents of 13 malnourished children found in alleged captivity in Southern California have been charged with committing years of torture and abuse and could face up to life in prison.

Told Lambert in the Mirror's Sunday edition, 'I asked her why on earth they wanted more children and she said about wanting a reality TV show'.

Cadaver dogs could be sent into David and Louise Turpin's house of horror over fears that the couple had other children who didn't survive. The Turpins have denied all charges.

The couple with their 13 children. "This means that abusing parents or carers never learn that there can be consequences from their cruel behaviours to children and children, in turn, never experience ordinary, non-abusing adults". He says a 29-year-old female victim weight 82 pounds.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, the children were starved, chained to furniture and not allowed to use the toilet.

"The parents would buy food for themselves and not allow the children to eat, " Hestrin said. She had reportedly been planning to escape for two years.

Now, people all over the world are wondering what will happen to the children, and what the future holds for them.

Both Turpin family dogs were found in good health. "Many of the children didn't know what a police officer was, " he said. Three children had been shackled to beds, and deputies found a 22-year-old chained to a bed.

David Turpin is now accused of kidnapping his wife Louise Turpin when she was in high school, according to authorities Saturday.

David Turpin (R) and Louise Turpin (L) appear in court for their arraignment in Riverside, California, U.S. January 18, 2018.

"She used to say how the would be ideal for TV and would often mention they would be bigger than reality show Kate Plus 8". In fact, the reasons for home-schooling run the gamut - a desire for more religious instruction or an education enriched with hands-on experiences; frequent family moves that would disrupt education; a child's serious medical issues; resistance to having children vaccinated.

"We remember them as a very nice couple", Trahan said, adding that Louise Turpin told him the family loved Disneyland and visited often. He told her it was all her fault. Investigators said the siblings had been so malnourished that the older ones still looked like children. "Now they're free from the ugly life they were living".

"They didn't care about the kids - it was all about them".

It is not known whether her sister Louise experienced the same traumatic childhood.

The shocking revelations come as Riverside County District Attorney Mike Hestrin said that "hundreds of journals" have been recovered from the children's home.

"We recognise financial gifts will not eliminate their trauma, but additional resources will be extremely important in helping these victims adjust over time", said Erin Phillips, executive director of RUHS Foundation, who assured 100 per cent of funds will go to the rescued family members.
