Louise Turpin identified herself as a housewife in a 2011 bankruptcy filing. All of the children are reportedly being treated for severe malnutrition at local hospitals and doctors are anxious they could go into shock. Seven of them are adults.
As a result of malnourishment, the 12-year-old child was the weight of an average 7-year-old while the oldest, a 29-year-old woman, weighed just 82 pounds, he said.

A neighbour named Jose Mercado was trying to reconcile the horror - the Perris chief of police called it an act of "torture" - with his experience of a quiet community where the surrounding blocks bustle with hundreds of young trick-or-treaters during Halloween and residents proudly compete over the best Christmas lights display. Neighbours who were ferrying young children to school would not have met the Turpin children there.

When authorities went to the house, the mother appeared "perplexed" on why they were there, according to Fellows.
