The 13 California siblings who police say were starved and chained to beds by their parents, hardly ever left their disordered house, and when they did, they appeared small and pale and acted strange. David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested on Sunday and each charged with nine counts of torture and 10 counts of child endangerment after a 17-year-old, emaciated girl escaped the home and called police. District Attorney Mike Hestrin claimed the 17-year-old had been working on a plan to escape for more than two years, and took one of her siblings with her, who became frightened and turned back. The children, who aged between two and 29, have been treated in a hospital since being freed on Monday.

Deputies located what they believed to be 12 children inside the house, but were shocked to discover that seven of them were actually adults, ranging in age from 18 to 29. The victims appeared to be malnourished and very dirty. The sheriffs office said “the victims were provided with food and beverages after they claimed to be starving.

The parents, were booked on torture and child endangerment charges with bail set at $9 million each, and if found guilty of the dozens of charges against them, the couple will face 94 years to life in prison.
