Teen who escaped Perris home posted videos online

Videos posted to YouTube give a rare glimpse into the desperation and anguish inside the Turpin family home in Perris.

The 17-year-old girl who escaped her family's home in January and called 911 about the deplorable living conditions, had previously posted the videos to YouTube of her singing songs she seems to have written herself.

One line goes, "You said you would never hurt me, you said you would never put me through that."

ABC News says the teen posted several videos under an alias- including some showing a small dog, but none show other children.

Prosecutors say the Turpin children were malnourished, forced to sleep during the day and subjected to frequent beatings and oftentimes shackled to furniture.

The Riverside County DA says, "There has been a recent media report about one of the victims in the David and Louise Turpin case being on social media. Our office has not commented on that report nor will we be confirming or commenting on it as this continues to be an active investigation."

The girl's parents- David and Louise Turpin- were arrested and are charged with torturing their children by starving, beating and shackling them.

The Turpins face up to life in prison if convicted of a total 78 charges. They are each being held in lieu of $12 million bond.
