Shocking videos reportedly filmed inside the Californian ‘house of horrors' have emerged almost two months after 13 children were rescued from their parent’s care.
According to Fox News, Louise Anna and David Allen Turpin’s 17-year-old daughter posted videos to YouTube using an alias while living in the squalid Perris home.
The videos were reportedly made by the same girl that managed to flee in January and alert authorities. Her most recent video was filmed just days before her escape.
In the videos, the girl can be heard singing songs she had seemingly written herself, against the backdrop of her harsh living conditions.
"You blame me for everything, you blame me in every way, you blame me for what they say, what they say,” she sings in one of the clips.
One video shows clothes piled to the floor and dirt on floors; another shows the girl interacting with two Maltese-mix breed dogs.
Allen Turpin, 57, and his wife, Louise Anna Turpin, 49 were arrested and charged with torture and child endangerment after police discovered 12 of the 13 children starving.
The parents appeared in court on January 18 and plead not guilty to all charges. According to CBS News, they are facing 12 counts of torture, seven counts of abuse of a dependent adult, six counts of child abuse or neglect and 12 counts of false imprisonment. The father is also charged with one count of lewd act on a child.
According to a police statement, the Turpin children were allegedly kept in dirty and foul-smelling surroundings.
"Further investigation revealed several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings, but the parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner,” a police statement reads.
A California judge has barred David and Louise Turpin of contacting their children for three years and keeping 90 metres away, the BBC reports.
