13 CHILDREN HELD CAPTIVE IN REAL LIFE 'HOUSE OF HORRORS' FOUND IN CALIFORNIA
With children ranging from ages 2 to 29, David and Louise Turpin kept all of their children in some kind of bondage.
This terror reality came to be known after their 17 year old daughter escaped from with a cell phone device and called 911.
Neighbors that were interviewed claimed that the children looked sickly and malnourished. Some had no idea the couple had as many as 13 children living in the house steps from them. Neighbor Kimberly Milligan said, "The older kids, I thought they were like 12 because they looked so malnourished, so pale.
The Turpins are being held under $9 million each, facing charges of child endangerment and torture. Authorities found the rest of the children shackled to beds where there starved in malodorous and dark surroundings.
