California parents charged with torture after 13 siblings rescued from California home

David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin

A fearless 17-year-old girl escaped her home and called 911 on Sunday to report a horrific situation: she and her 12 siblings were allegedly being held captive by their parents in their home.

The New York Times reports a 17-year-old girl, who claimed to have escaped confinement at the home southeast of Los Angeles, found a mobile phone within the house.

She told police her siblings were being held captive by her parents, and some of them were bound with chains and padlocks.

Riverside County Sheriff's Department said officers attended the Perris property and found the siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29, in "foul-smelling surroundings".

The victims were taken to the Riverside County Sheriff's Department's Perris Station for interviews; they were provided food and drink after telling investigators they were "starving", according to the release.

All the victims are now being treated in local hospitals.

Authorities raided the Perris home of David Turpin, 57, and Louise Turpin, 49, and they found twelve children locked inside, some shackled to beds.

Between 2011 and 2016, a Facebook page "David-Louise Turpin" had regular updates of pictures of the couple and the children. "It's so sad", said neighbor Jennifer Luna.

The Turpin children range in age from two to 29; seven of them are adults, the other six children. The parents are being held at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside on $9 million bail each.

They also said they knew of no friends that the couple had.

David Turpin's parents, James and Betty Turpin of West Virginia, told ABC News they are "surprised and shocked" by the allegations against their son and daughter-in-law. However, they never saw the younger children and they were "suspicious" of the situation. The father was listed as principal of a day school at the same address.

"They're very friendly, very cooperative, and I believe they're hopeful life will get better for them from this event", said Mark Uffer, CEO of Corona regional medical centre.
