'Horror house' couple blocked from seeing their children

David Allen Turpin 57 and Louise Anna Turpin 49

Several people have come forward with offers to adopt the children, according to Kimberly Trone, from the county's children's services division.

ABC News reported that the parents was moving from California to Oklahoma days before they were arrested and charged with torture and child endangerment, citing multiple unnamed sources.

The parents have pleaded not guilty to torture and other charges. If convicted, they face up to 94 years to life in prison. "Louise would never open the door all the way", Simon remembered, but she would see children behind Louise jumping up and down because they were so excited for cookies.

She said Louise Turpin talked proudly about having 13 children - each of whose first name starts with J, according to the felony complaint filed in Riverside County Superior Court. The children's ages range from 2 to 29.

Before they were discovered, the 13 siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29, were found living in squalor and malnourished and were chained and padlocked to beds.

"It kills me", Ontiveros said.

The family moved a few miles north, to Perris, in 2014.

Authorities have accused the parents of withholding food, limiting the children's use of the bathroom, and allowing them to shower only once a year.

Preacher Dr. Randy Turpin is the president of Valor Christian College in OH, where he is now on leave to handle "revelations about estranged family members".

It is said that Mr Turpin has a relatively well-paid job as an engineer at Northrop Grunmman, an aeronautics and defence technology company. They filed for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy at least twice - in 1992 in Fort Worth and in 2011 in Riverside, California.

He reportedly earned around $140,000 a year (£99,300), according to the bankruptcy documents. They are also banned from obtaining firearms and coming within 100 yards of any of the kids, except for court hearings, until 2021.

"She used to say how they would be ideal for TV and would often mention they would be bigger than the reality show Kate Plus 8", Billy Lambert told The Mirror earlier this month.

Dave Macher, representing David Turpin, welcomed the move as it "protects everyone involved, including my client". David Turpin is listed in a state Department of Education directory as the principal of Sandcastle Day School, a private K-12 school that has the same address as the couple's home.

Who are the 13 children?

Simon also recalled seeing six of the Turpin siblings years earlier at a community Christmas party.

The seven adults were taken to Corona Regional Medical centre for examination and treatment.

"When you see them, they're small. They were fed very little on a schedule".

The agency typically seeks to place children with a relative and keep siblings together, she said.
