For years, eleven brothers and sisters have lived through real hell. Held captive in their very home by their own parents, two of the children had also broken the silence during an interview for ABC: “It’s unimaginable to me that we had the worst case of child abuse. , arguably the most terrible in California history, but that we are not able to provide them with their basic needs.” According to a prosecutor, the Turpin children have lived in misery since they were freed from the grip of their parents: “They are in areas infected with crime. There is supposed to be money for their education but they don’t have access to it”.

On the side of the two parents, Louise and David Turpin were sentenced in 2019 to life imprisonment with a security sentence of 25 years. They had pleaded guilty to 14 charges including torture and forcible confinement. “I want to say I’m sorry, for everything I’ve done. I love my children…I pray for my children every day. I’m so sorry for all the wrong I’ve done. I loves them more than you can imagine,” the mother said during her trial. Unfortunately this sordid story also echoes the case named Colleen Stan. This 20-year-old young woman was kidnapped in May 1977 by Cameron and Janice Hooker. For seven years, she will be sequestered by the couple who use her as a sex slave.

The Victim and Stockholm Syndrome

The young woman will be locked up for seven years, for 22 hours a day in a wooden box, placed under the couple’s bed. Colleen suffered from Stockholm Syndrome following her abduction. Falling in love with her captor, she tries as best she can to recover from her trauma. As for Cameron Hooker, he was sentenced to 104 years in prison.
