Parents Who Allegedly Held Their 13 Children Captive Were Planning To Move 'Within Days'

The California parents who allegedly tortured and held their 13 children captive were preparing to move "within days" of when the couple’s 17-year-old daughter escaped and alerted authorities, multiple sources told ABC News exclusively.

David Turpin, 57, was getting a job transfer from California to Oklahoma with the defense contractor Northrop Grumann, the sources said, and as a result, the family was preparing to move "within days" of Jan. 14, when the 17-year-old clambered out of a window and used a deactivated cellphone to dial 911 for help, according to police. Authorities quickly came to the house, ultimately arresting the parents and taking all 13 siblings into state custody.

Sources told ABC News, "There were boxes in the house consistent with moving .concentrated in hallways, entryway and bedrooms."

It's not clear whether the move had any role in the timing of the 17-year-old daughter's escape.

The family had moved several times during the years, twice in Texas and once in California.

    1. There is nothing funny about this story. I pray the parents rot in jail. I also think that social services should be in contact big families because most people abroad with lots children has mental health issues.

  2. #You are so special, worthy of love. The right person will recognize all that you are*

  3. What's the move all about...taking all the children to state custody means taking the children out of their possession. But wait o, I think say oyibo people no dey born much.

  4. Not understanding this story, are they not their children ni,so wattin concern the authority na?.

  5. The man and his wife are both sick in the head and need to be locked up in a mad house.
    Glad they were caught.
