She told police she and her siblings were being held against their will at home. When police arrived, they initially thought that she was just 10-years-old.

After the daughter who raised the alarm was interviewed by police, the other 11 children of the Turpin family were found when officers entered the home on Sunday night.

A COUPLE in California have been charged with torture after their 13 children were held captive and some were found chained to beds in "foul-smelling surroundings". One woman said: "This family held their children captive in their house and chained them, their kids, to their beds".

Strangely, as per the state records, David home-schooled his six children and the home was tagged as Sandcastle Day School.

"The parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner", the Riverside County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. Their bail is set at $9 million each.

The children were taken to a hospital to be treated and fed.

Deputies went to the residence and said they were "shocked" to find the teen's 12 siblings, seven of whom were adults ranging in age from 18 to 29.

"It was mostly girls, they were tiny, they looked a little [malnourished]", one neighbour told ABC news. The Turpins filed for bankruptcy the same year, The New York Times report said.

Riverside County deputies arrested the parents at the home in Perris east of Los Angeles.

"I had no idea this was going on", he told The Press-Enterprise newspaper of Riverside. "Like they had never seen people before", she said.

A Facebook page that appeared to have been created by the parents showed the couple dressed in wedding clothes, surrounded by 10 girls in matching purple plaid dresses and three male children in suits.

A few years ago, Robert Perkins said he and his mother saw a few family members constructing a Nativity scene in the Turpins' front yard.
