Who are the Turpin sisters?

JENNIFER and Jordan Turpin have revealed the abuse they and their 11 siblings suffered at the hands of their parents.

Here is what we know about the two sisters and the ordeal that they went through.

Who are the Turpin sisters?

Jennifer and Jordan were two of 13 children kept imprisoned by their parents David and Louise Turpin.

The pair were abused and tortured – until their escape in 2018.

After finding freedom Jordan received her high school diploma in one year.

Her favourite subjects were politics, English and maths. She is reportedly now taking college classes.

Jennifer, meanwhile, is working at a restaurant and is writing Christian pop music which she hopes to share with the world. 

She also dreams of being a published writer, although she didn’t specify what books she hopes to write.

Speaking to ABC News' Diane Sawyer, Jennifer said: “I’m so thankful just to walk… [to] take an hour-long walk with my music.

“These little things I think… are things that people take for granted.”

What happened to the Turpin sisters?

The sisters and their siblings were reportedly locked in cages, chained to beds, beaten until they bled, sexually abused and starved over a period of almost two decades.

Their ordeal ended when her sister, Jordan, escaped their California home via a window and told cops that her siblings were being abused.

In the exclusive interview with Sawyer, Jennifer recalled her mom being prone to mood swings and would continuously lash out at the children.

She said: “I never knew which side I was going to get of her.

“If I was going to ask her a question, [is] she going to call me stupid or something… and then yank me across the floor or [is] she going to be nice and answer my question.”

As the years went on, her parents moved on from neglect to full-on abuse, and Turpin said they were pulled from school.

The revelations of the horrific abuse they received during the following years proceeded to shock the world.

Who are Jennifer Turpin's siblings?

During the ABC interview, Jennifer and Jordan were tight-lipped about their siblings because they wanted to protect their privacy 

They are said to be living normal lives since their release and continue to meet up with one another. 

Many have jobs or are attending educational institutions. Some are living on their own.

Jordan told ABC News: “It feels at home, being with all of us.

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