Seven 'House of Horrors' siblings finally left the hospital. Lawyer discloses their condition
Life might be finally starting afresh for the Turpin children as 7 of them have been released from a hospital. The children are the 7 oldest of the 13.
According to In Touch Weekly, the children were released on March 15, 2018. The 7 are now living in a house in California where they each have their own rooms.
The 7 children of abusers David, 57, and Louise Turpin, 49, were released from the Corona Regional Medical Center. According to their lawyer, Jack Osborn, the specific location of the home in rural California would be kept a secret.
Osborn told ABC News that the 7 Turpin siblings lived in a home together where they have their own rooms and closets. They were also reunited with their family dogs.
"It's just really fun. It's fun to be around them. Of course, they're really full of joy about their life and the things they get to experience right now," Osborn told the news outlet.
On Sunday, January 14, 2018, police made a shocking discovery in Perris, CA. At the home of David and Louise, 12 brothers and sisters were found living in "dark and foul-smelling surroundings."
"The adult siblings want to be known as survivors, not victims. They're joyful, warm, considerate.”

There some had were bound, shackled, or padlocked to beds, according to a statement from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department at the time. A 13th sibling was the one who had alerted authorities to the ‘house of horrors’ after she managed to escape and call for help.
The lawyer said that his clients were receiving occupational, physical, and psychological therapy. He added that they were also catching up on all the movies they had missed over the years like Star Wars.
Osborn revealed that none of the adult siblings had ever driven a car. This was beside the fact that they all were of the legal driving age for some time.
He stated that they were all looking forward to the future. Osborn shared that some of the children had asked whether they could be nurses without having to give injections or seeing too much blood.
He revealed that the children wanted to be independent and wanted to do things for themselves. They wanted a life where they could be responsible for themselves.
That was the goal and that was what everyone was working toward.
