Aunts of 13 Captive Siblings in Perris Reveal Years of Secrecy, Concerns

“I want her to know that she’s still my blood, and I love her,” Flores said. “I was treated like one of the kids, kind of, so I had rules. Two aunts of the 13 siblings held captive by their parents in Perris spoke out about years of concern for the family on Wednesday. Flores said she, too, was devastated to hear what happened. This photo was posted to a Facebook page for “David-Louise Turpin” on July 24, 2016. But something very disturbing did happen: Turpin used to watch Flores shower, she said. “I always made comments to Louise when I did talk to her, about, ‘Gosh, they’re so skinny.’ And she would laugh it off: ‘Well David’s so tall and lanky. I was scared. Their 13 children were held captive — with some shackled and chained with padlocks. But she said she still loves her sister. It was like a joke,” Flores said. They’re going to be like him,’” Robinette said. But this has been going on before they even had children … they were real private, and they didn’t come around much.”
The world now knows some of what may have been happening inside the Turpins’ four-bedroom house. “I was young. “He never touched me or anything.”
But she said she never told anyone about the shower stalking. But she was concerned about the children’s weights, Robinette told NBC’s “Today” show. “If it had been like two years ago that she cut us off, then we might think, wow, something’s not right. The Turpins face charges of torture and child endangerment; bail was set at $9 million. Back when she was in college, Flores lived with the Turpins for a few months. Well now that I’m an adult, and I look back, I see things that I didn’t see then.”
Another sister: The kids looked really skinny
Teresa Robinette, another sister of Louise Turpin, said she sometimes kept in touch with the mother of 13. After hearing about the children’s alleged torture at home, Robinette broke down in tears. But I want her to know I’m praying for her salvation.”
Flores said she had a more important message for her nieces and nephews: “I want them to know they do have family that they love, whether they know us or not.”

Sister-in-law: He watched me when I showered
Flores said she was never really comfortable with her brother-in-law. I was in Texas, where I knew nobody,” Flores said. At that time, the couple had a few children. But her sister and brother-in-law, Louise and David Turpin, kept such a secret life that they wouldn’t let her in. “When that happens for 20 years, and it was before the kids even were there, you don’t think it’s abnormal,” Flores told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Wednesday.

U.K. Appoints Minister for Loneliness in Effort to Tackle Social Isolation

The Jo Cox Commission on Loneliness was created as a response to the MP’s own experience of isolation. A challenge for medical professionals is to identify the risk of isolation before it becomes a greater problem. “This is an issue that Jo cared passionately about and we will honor her memory by tackling it, helping the millions of people across the U.K. who suffer from loneliness,” Crouch said in a statement. May was due to host a reception at Downing Street on Wednesday to pay tribute to Cox and her family.

How isolation damages health
The feeling of loneliness can affect more than a person’s quality of life: Studies have shown that living alone — or feeling lonely — raises the likelihood of premature death. Tracey Crouch, left, is taken on a tour during her visit the Sport England ‘Fit for Fun’ project at the University of East Anglia on May 28, 2015 in Norwich, England. U.K. The hardship can also be felt by young people — with recent research finding that heavy users of social media had higher levels of perceived social isolation. “Loneliness is the sad reality of modern life,” the prime minister said. One study of 45,000 people aged 45 and over, who suffered or were at risk from heart disease, found that those who lived alone were more likely to die than those who shared a home with others. Loneliness can also affect health in other ways. This can increase stress levels, driving up blood pressure and inflammation that could lead to heart disease. Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed a minister for loneliness in a drive to tackle social isolation, a problem endured by 9 million Britons.
