A sibling of one of the parents arrested in the disturbing “House of Horrors” case, where 13 siblings were allegedly found shackled and abused in a dirty home is speaking out. Elizabeth Flores, sister of Louise Turpin, made an appearance on “Good Morning Britain “ this week to state that her sister is “living in LaLa land."
She revealed that Louise believes “she didn’t do nothing wrong.”
Earlier this year Louise and David Turpin pleaded not guilty to multiple felony charges, including torture, child abuse, abuse of dependent adults and false imprisonment. David Turpin has also pleaded not guilty to his additional charge of committing a lewd act on one of the female children by force, according to The Washington Post. Their children, who range in age from 2 to 29, were rescued after one of them, a brave 17-year-old girl, escaped and called the police. Because of the alleged malnourishment they all suffered, police initially thought all victims were children. At least seven of the victims were adults, ranging in age from 18 to 29.
“We’re searching for answers just like the rest of the world,” Flores said on the British show. “We really don’t know what happened. That’s why we’re seeking out answers just like you are.”
She detailed how she recently visited her sister in jail. Flores said her sister believe that she will avoid jail time. Louise reportedly told her during that jail visit that they “[are] going to play board games again.”
That definitely may never happen again. Both parents are looking at a potential life sentence behind bars.
Flores isn’t Louise’s only sister who has spoken to the media. Her sibling Teresa Robinette made an appearance on NBC’s "Megyn Kelly Today” earlier this year detailing alleged sexual abuse she and her sisters endured as children.
