MEMBERS of the Turpin family talked about how a hidden camera inside a Barbie doll captured children being locked up, beaten, starved and sexually abused.

Jennifer said in the ABC interview about how before her siblings were released, she was afraid that if she did something wrong, her parents would beat her up.

“If I do one little thing wrong, I get hit,” she said. “And not just hit, hit until I bleed.

Jordan said she got the idea to run away after uploading some videos online.

“…When mom and dad left, that’s when I snuck into the bathroom and filmed my videos and took them out,” she said.

Jordan often records his voice in the bathroom.

She told Sawyer that a viewer once texted her and asked a few questions. Their conversation made her realize she should seek help.

Siblings are malnourished, ranging from 29 to three years old, locked in a cage by her parents and chained to a bed Louise and David Turpin.

Some children have been abused for decades. Jennifer was imprisoned for almost 30 years.

The alarm was finally raised in August 2018 when 17-year-old Jordan then tried to slide out the window of their California home.

During the interview, the sisters also talked about how they placed a camera inside the Barbie doll to capture the abuse.

JORDAN’S 911 CALL

Jordan recounts the terrifying decision to call 911 to her parents after she managed to escape.

She explained: “My whole body was shaking and when I was still on the phone, I remember that I couldn’t really dial 911 because… I tried to dial 911 but I couldn’t even dial 911. I used my thumb to press those buttons because I was shaking.

“But I’m trying to stay calm so I can do it. And then I finally hit it and they answer. I’ve never actually been on the phone with anyone.”

David, now 60, and Louise, 53, were jailed for life on February 22, 2019, on charges of child cruelty, false imprisonment and torture.

Jordan’s 911 call, which aired in the episode, describes some of the horrors the Turpin children experienced.

“They beat us… they threw us across the room, they pulled our hair, they pulled our hair,” she said. “My two younger sisters are now chained.”

Turpin’s eldest child Jennifer says her parents pulled her out of school after third grade – and her parents became more isolated and abusive as the years passed and more children were born.

A NEW LIFE

When the Turpins are finally rescued, the sisters describe how much the smallest things – like being able to hear music or smell the grass outside – mean to them.

Jordan describes her first experience at a park.

“I was so excited because I could smell the grass,” she said. “I was wondering, ‘How can heaven be better than this? … Oh my, what freedom, this is life. “

Jordan and Jennifer did not discuss their other 11 siblings, eager to protect their privacy, but did say the family often hangs out together.

“It felt like home, with all of us,” Jordan said.

“Every time we’re together, it’s a very special moment, because we always know at the end of the day, we’ll always have each other.”
