Two dogs were found by authorities in the home, according to city spokesman Joe Vargo.

Lambert revealed the couple were actively planning for TV stardom by posting on social media about their Elvis-themed vow renewals in Las Vegas, as well as dressing the children alike for public outings.

Ms Robinette said she now wonders if her sister's abrupt end to her life of abstinence triggered the alleged offences against their children, aged between two and 29 years old.

He said the news had been "devastating" to the family, adding: "We didn't never in a million years think that something like that was actually going on".

Louise Turpin's sister, Teresa Robinette, spoke with Megyn Kelley on the "Today" show Monday morning.


As CrimeOnline previously reported, Riverside County police arrested David and Louise Turpin last week after their 17-year-old daughter reportedly escaped the home through a window and called for police using a deactivated cell phone.

She also revealed horrifying details of the family's upbringing, claiming she, Louise and other family members had been sexually abused by a relative. He told People that Louise, the children's mother, met her husband, David, in church when she was just 16 and he was 24.

The shocking story of the Turpin family has completely disturbed the nation.

David Turpin and his wife, Louise Turpin, were arrested after sheriff's deputies found the malnourished children in their home in Riverside County. Some of the children were so detached they didn't understand the concept of a police officer or medicine.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department said in a January 15 news release that the siblings, ranging in ages from 2 to 29, "appeared to be malnourished and very dirty".
