PERRIS, CA — A YouTube video that was reportedly posted to YouTube by the 17-year-old daughter of alleged child abusers David and Louise Turpin gives a hellish look at what life was like inside the Turpin Family “House of Horrors” in Perris, California.

ABC News located a YouTube account that was allegedly created by the 17-year-old daughter who escaped from the house on January 14. The unnamed teen, after escaping through a window, called 911 from a cell phone and reported that she and her 12 siblings were allegedly being abused by their parents.

The teen reportedly produced the videos and posted them under an alias.

The videos show the teen singing songs she says she wrote and playing with the family’s two Maltese dogs, according to ABC News. Dirt and large piles of clothing can be seen in the house in the footage. The most recent video clip was posted just a week before the teen escaped from her family.

She also reportedly kept a secret Instagram account, which reveals that despite her home life, she is not that different from other girls her age — it’s mostly selfies and photos of Justin Bieber.

Authorities allege that David and Louise Turpin held 12 of their 13 children — who ranged in age from 2 to 29 at the time of the parents’ arrest — captive. When police entered the home, they found some of the children shackled to their beds. Prosecutors claims that the Turpins starved their children and only allowed them to take one shower a year. The dogs, however, reportedly appeared to be well fed.

The Turpins have been hit with a string of charges including torture, false imprisonment, and abuse. David Turpin is also facing a charge of a lewd act on a child under 14. They have pleaded not guilty to all charges and are currently being held on a $9 million bond each.

They face life in prison if convicted.
