Formerly Imprisoned Turpin Daughter Performed Songs On Secret YouTube Channel

Mrs Turpin's sister Elizabeth Flores and cousin Tricia Andreassen spoke of their horror on Good Morning Britain today

In the videos, the girl performed original songs under a fake name, with every video appearing to be shot in the same room of the house where she and her 12 siblings were starved by their own parents.

With song titles like "It's Over" and "Give Me One More Chance", the teen made fairly typical YouTube videos of herself singing in front of a closed bedroom door.

David and Louise Turpin were arrested in January after their 17-year-old daughter escaped their house and called police.

ABC News reports that the teen also had a secret Instagram account, where she posted mostly selfies and photos of Justin Bieber.

In another video, the teenager is playing with one of the family's dogs. Flores said that Louise is so delusional that she believes she's going to get out and play board games with her like they did when they were kids.

Authorities said a 22-year-old was found chained to a bed when they arrived and the home reeked of human waste. The case drew worldwide attention and shocked neighbors who said they rarely saw the couple's children in the neighborhood.

The pair said that they had noticed Mrs Turpin's eye change in 1982 when they looked through old

Both face life in prison is they are convicted of more than 40 charges, including torture and child abuse. David Turpin has also been charged with one count of a lewd act on a child under the age of 14 by force or fear of duress. Many of her siblings were legally adults, with their ages ranging from two to 29. "He would sob like his shoulders would shake up and down ... when mentioned about his parents and his brother and not seeing them", she said.

Mr Hestrin claimed that the shackling, as well as other punishments - including locking the children in different rooms, depriving them of food and inflicting "frequent beatings and even strangulation" - were used as punishment.

David and Louise Turpin, meanwhile, are in jail awaiting their next court date of March 23.

They also allegedly were allowed to take only one shower a year.

Both parents are now being held on $12 million bail, respectively, and face up to life in prison if convicted on all charges.
