Turpin sisters on finding courage to develop plan for escape from imprisonment

Sad they look so much like their parents and what is their accent?

Jordan the oldest is very attractive, although she must be pretty immature for her 33.

OP - Combo of rural Texas, and being locked away from others, only hearing your psycho parents' speech, accent, patterns.

by Anonymousreply 2November 19, 2021 12:08 PM

Their accent is being chained in a hell house and having no formal education or access to the real world. Their “parents” need to be chained to their beds and set the fuck on fire for what they did to these kids!

Wow, I didn’t think we’d ever hear from these kids. I’ll be watching. These stories fascinate me.

So tragic and brutal. And even after the escape still lots of bad shit. Riverside County is basically a shithole. The trustee/real estate agent sounds exactly like that Rosamund Pike character in the "I Care A Lot" movie. Horrible system. The younger, talkier sister was adorable. They all have a lot to catch up on. Hope they are still getting psychological help. I can't imagine it would be easy to just put it behind them. I am rooting for them.

I was surprised to hear that the adult children were kicked out of foster care and placed in public housing. They are too naive to be living on their own. These adults need extended foster care where some older adults can give them guidance and teach them basic life skills. Or perhaps a church can take them on, put them up in housing with some of the church families, and provide them with a community of support. They also need continuing therapy, perhaps twice a week.

Their looks will attract a lot of attention, and they are very naive. Someone is going to have to teach them about boys...before boys teach them about boys.

R7 - I work in child welfare - kids in foster care are all kicked out at 21 (in NY - likely at 18 elsewhere) and sent to public housing - which is seen as a much better permanency outcome than “supportive housing” which ends when they are 26. The system is fucked. You have to have SEVERE developmental disabilities to qualify for permanent housing through OPWDD - which is the closest thing to extended foster care we have in America.

Usually the kids who transition out of foster care into public housing end up having their own kids who then get removed for abuse/neglect and put in foster care and the cycle continues….

I’m fascinated by this story, namely that this went on so long. R14, I think maybe the parents have siblings, but they’re long estranged from them. The parents should burn in hell forever for what they did. They actually enjoyed their lives—and let their kids live in filth.

Sick parents. It seems like the mother was probably deeply mentally ill. Probably the father too. That doesn't excuse what they did.

The two sisters who were interviewed, and their teen-aged brother who chose not be on screen, all sound noticeably stunted in intellectual development, especially the brother who sounds closer to a 12 year-old than his actual age.

The detective(?) involved in the case mentioned that they have no fear factor. This family is destined to be a "where are they now" news segment in the not too distant future and probably over the long term as well. Hopefully, serendipity works in their favor over time.

Diane should do a yearly update like she used to with the Dilley Sixpack (first set of sextuplets who all survived) who grew up to be completely normal, with normal parents, and probably a huge disappointment to ABC (or whichever network Diane was with at the time).

These "kids" should sue the shit out of every agency that failed them, starting with the public school the oldest, Jennifer, attended for a short time before her insane parents pulled her out and "homeschooled" her and the rest of them. They need an advocate with no monetary interest in them. It's really tragic. I hope the younger ones have some semblance of a normal life.

Here’s the full episode below.

The last 15 minutes are devoted to the mismanagement and alleged embezzlement of funds earmarked for the Turpins. It was ironic that, on one hand, there were people talking about how life is beautiful and full of love and potential for these kids, yet on the other hand, money is missing and Riverside County officials, (especially the Public Guardian) and foster care companies have fucked them over. They can end the show with a walk on the beach all they want, but these kids are learning that EVERYONE is an asshole.

I immediately thought of that movie when that "trustee/guardian woman" appeared. When that movie came out, there was some media attention of real life similar cases of court appointed guardians taking money and sending off elderly or disabled people off to assisted living or group homes. The media attention on those types of cases died down, a bit because of the bigger focus on the Britney Spears conservator-ship case.

Being a victim of the environment that he was raised in, he was most likely in no frame of mind to go up against and report his parents. All of the Turpin kids suffered from extreme physical, emotional and social deprivation. I don't see how any of them could be held responsible at any stage of their lives. There's no evidence as of yet that the older ones willingly took part in any abuse.

Jordan told Diane Sawyer her two fears that night were (a) her parents killing her on sight and (b) being kicked out of the house and forced to live in the street. I think both were heavily instilled in all the kids by the parents. None of them had a good frame of reference as to what the outside world was really like, and sadly they are finding out now it is a lot harsher out there than those first weeks in the hospital where the nurses and doctors showered them with care and love. Ironically I’ll bet more than a few of the children wish they could go back to the way it was because at least they were all together.

by Anonymousreply 111November 22, 2021 6:22 PM

The older brothers were allowed more privileges like smart phones because the parents knew they’d be harder to restrain and control physically. The older boys were also allowed to go to school because the parents knew the boys would be a source of income if they’d gotten some formal education and gotten jobs. The girls had it much worse because they were smaller and easier to restrain, and the parents being insane Jesus freaks, believed girls to be not worthy of any education.

The foster system in California has its dark side. Working in healthcare, both outpatient and inpatient, I’ve known some great as well as horrible foster parents. Most are in it for the right reasons but a few unfortunately only become foster parents for the $$$. I’ve had to report foster parent abuse a handful of times in my current DNP position. The most recent time was just this past year. For every reported case of neglect and outright abuse, there are likely more cases that are borderline reportable or cases that never/ don’t get reported.

[quote] They clearly had their hair professionally colored and styled. Makeup professionally done and a wardrobe person dress them for this ABC interview. They look professionally put together to me. Am I the only to notice that?

Given how much their parents restricted them from grooming themselves, good for them.

R95 um...duh. It was a TV interview. No one goes on TV looking like shit unless its Dr Phil.

r119 ABC obviously got them professional hair and makeup people - that's normal procedure

I watched the GMA interview. It's so creepy when Jordan calls her parents Mother and Father. (not her fault) It's like a Flowers in the Attic story come to life.

my oldest always called me mother and neither us of knew why. I always figured it was some leftover residual from a past life.

I am going to guess that they called them mother and father because that is way the names are written in the Bible so their parents made them call them that..

Jordan actually refers to them as “Shithead” and “Fuckface” but they had to dub her for network tv.

Jordan is 20, why are posters claiming she's in her 30s? She was 17 when she escaped in 2018.

R124 Jordan is the now 21-year-old. She was the one who snuck out and called 911.

Jennifer, the brunette is the oldest, 33

(r58) I could see Frances McDormand playing Mother Turpin for her nine millionth Oscar nomination. She could just grow that hair out a bit and be herself and look the part.

They look so luminous- being out of the sun for 20-30 years has done wonders for their skin. I am very concerned about Jordan. She is too pure for the career she desires. The world is about to chew her up and spit her up, but I hope I’m wrong. I hope she finds a safe haven and a caring mentor.

Unfortunately, this will probably all end in tears

R127 Oooh that is good casting for Mother

However, how much to you want to bet that Ryan Murphy options the story and Sarah fucking Paulson will lisp her way through some more scenery chewing

the 20/20 must have been done a while ago. The sisters were interviewed the next day on GMA and their hair and looks were different. Jordan said to them, you know how bad it was for me the last 3 years. No one elaborated and I am going to guess she was in foster care and was abused but they probably couldn't say anything because of (Hopefully) impending charges. Jordan said she thinks the last 3 years did more damage to her than anything else.

I agree about the sun. I thought when watching them that they had avoided the damage they would have gotten as children from being in the sun, but it was awful price to pay for great skin.
