The Turpins allegedly tortured their 13 children and the news had made her family members feel sick

Their 17-year-old daughter climbed through a window and alerted police, leading to the couple's arrest. She informed authorities that she and her siblings were being held against their will, starved, tortured, and even prevented from bathing.

The siblings, aged between two and 29, were found shackled and emaciated at the family's home in Perris on 14 January.

In her Instagram account under an alias, she posted selfies, pictures of animals and photos of singer Justin Bieber, ABC news reported.

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. It's unclear whether the full catalogue of videos still exists online.

She also posted videos of her interacting with two Maltese-mix breeds. The case drew global attention and shocked neighbors who said they rarely saw the couple's children in the neighborhood.

Prosecutors have alleged all the children except for the youngest, a toddler, were severely malnourished. They face up to life in prison after being charged with torture and child abuse. 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.
