Default Turpin Children Case

So my sister just told me about a special on 20/20 about the Turpin family. I just finished watching it and I’m blown away at how people get away with this kind of stuff!! I’m sure some of you Leo’s and/or detectives have seen this to some degree numerous times but this is unbelievable! I’m curious if anyone of y’all have seen or heard of this story and also wanted to bring a little awareness to these kinds of situations. It’s pretty sickening to know this goes on.

I watched it the other night. I'm glad those sickos are in prison for life for what they did to their children. Does not surprise me one bit that the kids are getting taken advantage of.

We heard about it when the case broke originally and were mind blown. Watched the special when it came on the other night in disbelief. The mental, physical and emotional trauma that those kids experienced are unreal. It truly amazes me that at no point did a neighbor not think that something was up and inquire to the parents or Family Protective Services.

Not only were they abused by their parents, but by the system when they got out of that hell. Child services should be brought up on charges as well. Terrible situation…….

This is the other side that is crazy to me. I guess in today’s time it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Greed has gotten ahold of everyone on all levels.

How do you do this to your own children? That takes a special kind of evil.

Crazy, I just read the entire thing. Seems unreal that this could go on undetected by anyone for so long.

Child Services is so messed up. There are some great ones that are there for the right reasons and give these kids their all but there are some bad apples for sure. We were foster parents for just over 8 years and remained active in the foster community for several more years by putting on informational classes. The corruption that has occurred in the system is astounding and makes it difficult to promote it. We still do because there is such a grave need for good foster homes but we are 100% transparent on what you are signing up for when you do it.

With all that said, I would do it again over and over just to give these kids a chance at normalcy in this crazy world.
