Turpin children’s rescue bodycam video shows squalor inside the home and bruises on children chained to beds as their parents are arrested.

BODYCAM footage shows the squalor inside the Turpin home, as well as the bruises on the children who were chained to their beds.

The heartbreaking conditions in what has been dubbed “house of horrors” are exposed to the world in a never-before-seen police video.

On January 14, 2018, police were called to the Turpin home in Perris, California, after Jordan escaped through a window and told a police operator, “My two little sisters are chained up right now.”

Her parents, David and Louise Turpin, she continued, had been violently abusing and starving their 13 children for years.

Bodycam footage of the moment police arrived on the scene to find a panicked Jordan standing by the side of the road was released for the first time in a special ABC report on the family.

As he steps out of his patrol car, a sheriff’s deputy greets Jordan, saying, “Hi, Jordan.”

“Right now, my two little sisters are chained up because they stole my mother’s food,” says the narrator.

“We live in filth,” she continued, “and sometimes I wake up and can’t breathe because of how filthy the house is.”

“We don’t bathe.”

Officers knocked on the door for more than two minutes before David and Louise Turpin, the parents, answered.

Louise can be heard saying they were in bed when cops arrived to inform her that they were there for a welfare check after her daughter had called.

Officers discovered mounds of garbage, feces, and moldy food once inside.

They also discovered filthy, pale, and frail children.

A cop discovered two frail girls, bruised and caked in dirt, in one filthy bedroom.

“Hello, darling.

Hello there, ladies.

“Can I see your wrists?” the officer asks.

“We’ve come to assist you.”

“Is that what this is about?” Louise asks the cops, to which the officer replies, “Well, that’s definitely part of it.”

The officers then rushed to free the children, arresting their parents and asking where the key to the chains could be found, according to the video.

The severely abused siblings, ranging in age from two to 29, were taken to a hospital and fed and cared for.

The shackles, on the other hand, were just the beginning of decades of heinous abuse and torture inside the Turpin household.

Later, investigators would…
