California parents kept their 13 children chained, confined at home

David and Louise Turpin allegedly made their children march in circles

Both parents face nine charges each of torture and child endangerment. Their bonds have been set at $9 million each.

Police say some of the children were shackled to beds with chains and padlocks. In all, the victims are between the ages of 2 and 29, the release stated. All of them appeared to be "malnourished and very dirty".

The abuse was discovered when a 17-year-old girl jumped out of a window and called 911 Sunday. Over the years, Milligan said, she would occasionally see three children who looked like preteens.

Authorities interviewed the children and provided them with food and drink.

The 13 Turpin children, who are aged two to 29 years old, were uncuffed from their beds and taken off to hospital where they were fed and examined by medical staff. The day school opened March 21, 2011, and was described as a private school serving grades 1-12.

David Turpin made about $140,000 per year working as an engineer at Northrop Grumman, according to the bankruptcy documents. Neither of them has a serious criminal record. "We just knew there was no way they could make their payments", Trahan said.

"They were very, very pale-skinned, nearly like they've never seen the sun", a neighbor told ABC.

The couple's children joined them for the 2013 and 2015 renewals.

She did not recall hearing about a school run from their home.

"Through the years, I actually remember them every well", he said of the family. I haven't seen her in 19 years.

The situation at the home in Perris, about 70 miles southeast of Los Angeles, was discovered when the daughter escaped early Sunday, Fellows said. Betty claims that, for protective reasons, the parents would line up their children according to age when they went out in public.

However, with so many children and his wife not working, records suggest his expenses exceeded his income. If you've been deprived of normal childhood activities, normal interactions and the people who should have been providing for you have failed to do so, that is going to cause some psychological damage.

"David and Louise Turpin are considered a good Christian family in their community", they said.

Flores, who herself is a mother of seven, also revealed that her parents flew out to California to visit but that her sister would not provide them a home address.

The most recent shots, from 2016, show the parents beaming after they apparently renewed their wedding vows and posed with an Elvis impersonator. The parents posed in bride and groom attire, surrounded by 10 female children smiling for the camera in matching purple plaid dresses and white shoes.
