California Parents Charged with Torture, Child Endangerment of their 13 Children

David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested on January 14, 2018, on torture and child endangerment charges after a 17-year-old girl escaped from the California home where she and 12 of her siblings were held captive, shackled to beds and malnourished by their parents. All 13 victims, ranging from the age of 2 to 29, were transported to the Perris Station and interviewed. Both parents were interviewed and subsequently transported to the Robert Presley Detention Center (RPDC) where they are being held on a $9 million bond. Photo via Facebook/UPI
