David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin were arrested after their 17-year-old child managed to escape the home and call 911. Police say several of the children were shackled with chains and padlocks to their beds in terrible conditions, all of them malnourished. Seven of the 13 are adults ranging in age from 18 to 29
