According to a report via the UK Mirror, Louise Turpin's half brother, Billy Lambert told how father David Allen Turpin, a former 57 year old computer engineer and his 49 year old 'home-maker' wife, Louise Anna Turpin wanting a 14th child as part of their 'reality show' ambitions.

Speaking to ABC News, David Turpin's parents, who live in West Virginia, say, "David and Louise Turpin are considered a good Christian family in their community". Protective orders are standard in criminal matters to shield alleged victims from contact with defendants, who might otherwise affect their ability to testify. The county is seeking custodial rights over them.

The couple face charges of torture, abuse and false imprisonment. They're each being held in lieu of $12 million bail at the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside and are facing 94 years to life in state prison if convicted.

"I will tell you as a prosecutor, there are cases that stick with you, they haunt you", Hestrin said. "They're going to experience a culture shock even apart from the trauma they have undergone", said Costales, who has treated kidnapping victims. The couple's eldest child, who is 29 years old, weighed only 82 pounds.

"James and Betty Turpin want their grandchildren to know that they love them very much and their utmost concern is for their safety at this time", Flanigan stated. They were found so malnourished they have nerve damage. The children were allegedly homeschooled, but many didn't know what a police officer was, or what medications or pills were. "They didn't know what medication was for".

The couple would also frequently beat and strangle the siblings as punishment, he said, and they apparently bought food for themselves and then let the siblings look at it but not eat it.

The rescue became possible after their 17-year-old sister braved escaping through a window so that she could finally call 911.

Louise Anna Turpin, accused of holding their 13 children captive, appears in court for arraignment in Riverside, California on January 18, 2018.

Told Lambert in the Mirror's Sunday edition, 'I asked her why on earth they wanted more children and she said about wanting a reality TV show'. The children were also allegedly shackled for months at a time, and often "not released to go to the bathroom" and were "not allowed to shower more than once a year".

United Kingdom newspaper, The Independent, reported that it had contacted the Sheriff's Department in Riverside County and the police department in the City of Perris, California, to verify the report, but neither responded to paper's requests for comment. They had previously resided in Fort Worth, Texas. And no doubt, stories remotely like the Turpins' are rare.

David Turpin left his engineering job at Lockheed Martin Corp.in 2010, a company spokeswoman told Reuters.

Dr Vizard says: "There are common mental mechanisms, such as "splitting" and "projection", which we all use to ignore aspects of our own bad behaviour or to attribute our bad behaviour to others as being their fault".

The Turpins made headlines after their 17-year-old daughter escaped from the house and alerted police to the plight of her siblings. The girl told dispatchers her 12 siblings were in need of help, and when deputies arrived, she presented them with photographs documenting conditions inside the residence, the captain said. An 11 and 14-year-old were unchained as the police stood at the door while a 22-year-old remained chained to a bed when the police entered the home.

The couple were arrested earlier this week and were charged with 12 counts of torture. The lewd acts charge against David Turpin stems from his alleged molestation of one of the girls.

David and Louise's home supposedly doubled as a homeschool called the Sandcastle Day School, but it was never inspected by education officials, according to The Guardian.
