The New York Post: California parents held on suspicion of torturing 13 children found in shackles

Police in California discovered a horrifying scene of 12 siblings “shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks” inside their California home after a 13th child escaped and called 911.

The siblings — ranging in age from 2 to 29 — were allegedly being held captive in putrid conditions by their parents in a home in Perris, Calif., about 30 miles south of San Bernardino, according to KABC-TV.

The parents — David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49 — were being held on suspicion of torture and child endangerment.

Bail was set at $9 million each.

The discovery was made after a 17-year-old girl escaped from the house on Sunday morning and called police on a cell phone she managed to sneak out with her.
