Horror Texas homes where Turpin couple used to live

The current owners of the two Texas homes where a couple charged with torturing their 13 children once lived claim to have found scratch marks on doors, as well as closets that may have been used to keep the siblings.

David and Louise Turpin had lived in a home in Fort Worth, Texas from around 1992 to 1999 before they lost it in a foreclosure.

The owners who moved in after them claim the home was left in complete squalor.

They say they found scratch marks on the back of doors and that the carpet was covered in dirt and filth, according to CBS.

Parents David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested and charged with torture and child endangerment

The people who bought the home initially thought the scratch marks were caused by animals, but now believe it could be something more sinister following the arrest of the parents.

They took photos of the dirt covered floor, walls and doors.   

The Turpin family then moved to Rio Vista, south of Fort Worth, where they lived for a decade.  

The current owner of the Rio Vista home, who didn’t want to be identified, told WFAA that she found unusual vents in the master bedroom closet when she moved in after the Turpins left in 2010.

‘There are two vents in the closet and they are covered up now,’ she said.

She believes the couple’s children may have been locked in there.

The Turpins lived in Rio Vista from around 1999 to 2010 when they relocated to California. Louise gave birth to at least one child, who is now aged two, after moving to California. 

‘She never allowed her children to go outside and play. They homeschooled every one of them and one day they just up and left,’ the woman said. 

She described the Turpins as hoarders and said they left everything when the suddenly moved. They had so many belongings in the home it was difficult to walk around.   

Neighbors have also revealed the children were not allowed to tell people their names and described the home in Rio Vista as a ‘religious compound’.

The disturbing details emerged after the Turpins were charged with torturing and keeping their 13 biological children – ranging from 2 to 29 years of age – captive in their Perris, California home.

The children were rescued by police on Sunday after the couple’s 17-year-old daughter escaped through a window and called police saying her siblings were being chained up inside the home. 

Police hailed the teenager a hero for her daring escape. 

The girl, who was so malnourished officers initially believed she was only 10, managed to escape through a window and call 911 with a deactivated cell phone she had found in the home. When officers interviewed the girl, she provided photos of the conditions and abuse suffered by her and the rest of her siblings. 

Authorities found at least three of the Turpin children – aged 2 to 29 – shackled to their beds and furniture with chains and padlocks in a dark, foul-smelling room inside the family home. 

The victims, including six children and seven adults, were ‘malnourished and very dirty’. It is not clear how long some of them were chained, padlocked and shackled before they were discovered. 

‘We do need to acknowledge the courage of that young girl who escaped,’ Riverside County sheriff’s Capt. Greg Fellows said on Tuesday. 

Police confirmed that all 13 victims are the biological children of David and Louise Turpin. They were both arrested and charged with nine counts of torture and 10 of child endangerment. They are being held on $9million bail pending a court appearance. 

According to The Mirror, the 17-year-old who finally broke free thought her parents would kill her if they caught her trying to escape. 

‘In her mind, she was risking her life,’ a source told the paper, describing the teen as ‘so intelligent’ despite alleged limited access to the outside world during her childhood.

The malnourished siblings, who were taken to hospital still dressed in their pajamas, continue to undergo treatment. Child’s services will now seek a court order to have oversight over the 13 children, including those over the age of 18.

Police confirmed that both David and Louise Turpin were religious but were unable to say if that played a role in holding their children captive. 

While still early in the investigation, police said there were no signs that any of the siblings were sexually abused or that the parents were suffering from mental illness.

The sheriff’s captain said the conditions were horrific and amounted to torture. It wasn’t yet clear how long they had been held in such conditions in the filthy home but it appeared to have been a ‘prolonged’ period.

‘If you can imagine being a 10-year-old and being chained to a bed … I would call that torture,’ he said. 

He added that Louise seemed ‘perplexed’ about why police came to their home, but it was unclear how the children’s father reacted.

Deputies had never been called to the home and neither had social service workers.

Corona Regional Medical Center CEO Mark Uffer said his facility is treating seven of the adult children.

‘It’s hard to think of them as adults, they are so small,’ Uffer said, adding that they clearly malnourished but stable and very friendly. 

‘I believe they are hopeful life will get better for them after this event.’

Tottenham players are on their way back to north London following a short training camp in the sunny climes of Barcelona, Erik Lamela revealed on his Instagram feed.

The Argentine midfielder posted a photo of his team-mates on their flight home from Spain, where they enjoyed several days away from the gripping winter weather ahead of their next game against Southampton.

And the Tottenham squad were not the only athletes escaping the rain and howling winds as 200-meter world champion Dafne Schippers was completing her own winter regime at the same training complex.

Mauricio Pochettino and Harry Kane posed for a photo with the sprinter, who is now one of Holland’s most famous athletes after her gold winning performance in at the World Championships in London last summer. She also picked up bronze in the 100m event. 

Schippers wrote: ‘It is not every day that top coach #mauriciopochettino and one of the best strikers in the world @harrykane from @spursofficial come visit your training camp.’

Following Tottenham’s 4-0 win over Everton last weekend, Pochettino spoke of the importance of training camps at this time of the season.

‘It’s fantastic to change the routine and always after a busy period in the Premier League and the FA Cup, the Christmas period, to try to change that routine is always important for the team,’ Pochettino told Tottenham’s official website.

‘Barcelona is so close to London and with the weather we have here, to feel the warmth is important to lift everything, to breathe a little bit and we believe it’s good to create that atmosphere.

‘Of course, the weather helps a lot. Being all together for the new players, for the staff, for everyone, it’s important.’

Pochettino also said the team bonding experience will be just as important as the training aspect and, judging by Lamela’s photo, they travel back to London a knitted just a little bit tighter.

American tourist arrested after woman falls four floors

An American man has been detained by police in Peru after a woman fell from the fourth floor window of her hotel room.

CCTV captured the moment the woman was found writhing in pain on the pavement after plummeting to the ground.

It happened last week at the San Pedro Inn hotel located in the district of Surquillo in the Peruvian capital, Lima.

Perla Reategui, 22, was seen entering the hotel with Bruce Bradshaw, right just after 1:30am

One hour earlier, Perla Reategui, 22, was seen entering the hotel with American tourist Bruce Bradshaw.

She had been staying at the hotel for three days. 

Reategui and Bradshaw went to room 408 at 1.39am and returned to the reception after 20 minutes where they reportedly had a heated discussion about a missing $100 bill. 

The woman, originally from Loreto in northern Peru, wanted to leave the hotel premises during the row but Bradshaw insisted that she stay and stood in her way as she tried to leave.

Security cameras recorded the couple’s earlier comings and goings in the reception.

The couple then returned to Bradshaws room just after 2am but less than an hour later, at 2.41am, the woman’s screams could be heard as she was found laying on the pavement directly below room 408. 

Incredibly, the young woman survived the fall from a fourth floor window but appeared to be in complete and utter agony.

She was taken by ambulance to Hospital Casimiro Ulloa where she was treated for a broken left leg and fractured right ankle.

Police are investigating the case and have detained Bradshaw at the Surquillo police station. He has not yet been charged.

A Florida man has been arrested after sending sexually explicit photos of a woman to her boss in revenge for being rejected by her.

Giuseppe Garibaldi, 30, had been in a short-lived non-committed relationship with the his victim, during which he had taken intimate photographs of her without her knowledge.

When she ended their liaison and spurred his attempts to meet up again, he sent the images to the Facebook page of the pre-school in Seminole County where she works. 

The pair had met on an online dating site and embarked on a casual sexual relationship, ClickOrlando reports. 

According to the victim they met up a handful of times, and Garibaldi took several sexually explicit photos of her.

He allegedly told her about the photos and used them to blackmail her into committing to an exclusive relationship.

When she refused, she discovered that her car had been scratched with what appears to have been a key.

Garibaldi then threatened to come to her house and break her door down,  according to an affidavit quoted by local news-websites.

The following day, he sent the photos in a message to the school’s Facebook page where they were seen by the victim’s boss, claiming that the images were ‘all over’ the internet.

‘This is someone who couldn’t take no for an answer,’ Seminole County Sheriff Officespokesperson Bob Kealing told ClickOrlando.

‘This is someone who was told, “I want this relationship to be over with” and he wouldn’t take no for an answer, and then the threats started coming.’

Garibaldi was identified as the man in the photos thanks to a tattoo.

He has been charged with stalking – sexually cyber harassing a person, extortion and stalking – cyberstalking. 

Lesbian blogger wins damages in ‘revenge porn’ case

An actress from YouTube‘s self-styled ‘Singing Lesbian Duo’ has won a huge compensation payout after her ex-boyfriend put revenge pornography of her online.

LA-based Chrissy Chambers, who runs a successful blog and YouTube channel with her girlfriend Bria Kam, was horrified when she discovered her former partner had posted videos of their sexual activity on pornographic website Redtube.com.

She only found out about the films more than a year later after receiving messages claiming she was intentionally involved in porn.

The 26-year-old brought a landmark court claim for breach of confidence, misuse of private information and harassment at London’s High Court against her ex, who has not been named in court.

Ms Chambers’s celebrated today’s court victory by proposing to her girlfriend outside court

She celebrated winning the first of its kind case today by proposing to Ms Kam on the steps of the famous London court. The couple are now looking forward to planning their wedding.

She posted a photo of them kissing on Instagram, with the caption: ‪I could not be more elated to announce today that I won my revenge porn case and also asked the most incredible girl to marry me. That’s right – we won and Bria and I are engaged!!!!!’

Ms Kam tweeted: ‘WE ARE ENGAGED! I could not be happier to call this woman my fiancé. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I love you so much Chrissy.’

Her lawyer had told the High Court she had a romantic relationship with the British man from 2008 to 2009, but two years after they split up, he posted six films onto RedTube, without her knowledge or consent.

In June 2013, Ms Chambers was alerted to the films and immediately contacted the website to have them removed.

By then, she had received numerous comments and messages from YouTube users who wrongly believed she had been intentionally involved in the pornography, the court heard.

The couple's videos have been viewed more than 300million times on YouTube

Her lawyer said Ms Chambers had since suffered serious emotional and psychological difficulties resulting, for a time, in substance abuse and relationship difficulties.

She had been diagnosed with PTSD and undergone specialised trauma therapy but continued to have flashbacks and nightmares relating to the disclosure of the films.

She set up a crowd-funding campaign on the internet to raise money to issue to bring the legal case and raise awareness of the issue of revenge porn.

Her barrister Alex Marzec said the man accepted he posted the videos online and regretted the impact it had caused.

He agreed to pay Ms Chambers substantial undisclosed damages and her legal costs, London High Court heard.

‘We have faced mountains of red tape and numerous dead ends. The police have turned us away.’

Corbyn denies he will be too old to lead Labour after 2022

Jeremy Corbyn‘s aides have dismissed concerns from senior colleagues that he will be too old to lead Labour into a general election by 2022.

The leader’s spokesman denied the 68-year-old had a ‘senior moment’ at PMQs and said speculation about his ability to continue in the demanding role for another decade were ‘nonsense’.

The veteran left-winger has made clear he has no intention of standing down before the nation goes to the polls again – saying his diet of ‘porridge and energy bars’ will keep him going.

But a shadow cabinet source told MailOnline that if the parliament runs for a full five years Mr Corbyn, at the age of nearly 73, will be unable to cling on. They suggested Tory MPs were highly unlikely to collapse the government early.

Mr Corbyn was brutally put down by Theresa May in the Commons this afternoon when he apparently forgot to ask a question – instead making a statement and sitting down again.

Mr Corbyn’s spokesman denied suggestions he had suffered a ‘senior moment’.

‘Jeremy will be continuing to lead the Labour party and fight the next election,’ the spokesman said.

‘It’s nonsense that the whole matter is in question, it’s nonsense that he had a senior moment, it’s nonsense on all fronts.

‘Jeremy is extremely energetic, works extremely long hours and since he has been doing this job has performed at an extremely effective and high level.

‘He is extremely vigorous. He has become more effective as a leader since he was first elected.

‘I see no sign whatsoever that his age is an impediment to continuing to be leader.’

The row came after a shadow cabinet colleague told MailOnline: ‘A leader standing at a general election has to commit to doing a full five years.

‘Jeremy is in good shape, but by May 2027 he will be nearly 78.’

Rumours about the leadership have been swirling despite Mr Corbyn consolidating his grip with the better-than-expected election result last June.

The Left has been focused on taking full control of the Labour machine, with Momentum founder Jon Lansman among three Corbynites elected to the ruling National Executive Committee (NEC) yesterday.

Moderate MPs fear a round of deselections as the party is shifted away from the Tony Blair era.

But there is currently no obvious successor for Mr Corbyn on the Left – sparking concerns that his project could be unwound again.

Shadow business secretary Rebecca Long Bailey, Laura Pidcock and Angela Rayner are among those touted as possible contenders.

Jeremy Corbyn has made clear he has no intention of standing down before the nation goes to the polls again – saying his diet of ‘porridge and energy bars’ will keep him going

In a pre-Christmas interview, the Labour leader dismissed questions about whether he could sustain the level of campaigning needed until 2022.

‘I eat porridge every morning; porridge and energy bars and I keep off alcohol and meat. I’ve got loads of energy.’  

In May last year Mr Corbyn also suggested that 68 was ‘too late’ to retire from a stressful job.

After a speech at the Royal College of Nursing Conference in Liverpool, he was quizzed over his attitude to the pension age.

A nurse complained that they are ‘now expected to work in this demanding job until I am 68’, adding: ‘Do you think this is safe for my patients, do you think this is safe for me? And if not, what will you do about it?’ 

Indicating that Labour opposed raising the state retirement age, Mr Corbyn said: ‘I think 68, as they say, is too late.’

Saudi Crown Prince: Trump backs my round-up of princes

The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia has boasted that he had the backing of President Donald Trump for his November ‘coup,’ a source in the country has told DailyMail.com.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman, now the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia, told his close aides that Trump had given his explicit support for a power grab, which involved the arrests of 11 princes and hundreds of officials and businessmen in midnight raids across the kingdom.

A source close to the Saudi leader, known by his initials MBS, told DailyMail.com that Salman ‘bragged’ about his cozy relationship with the U.S. president and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, claiming that the president backed Salman’s takeover.

The claim closely matches an insider account in Michael Wolff’s explosive book ‘Fire and Fury’ that the president told his friends, ‘We’ve put our man on top!’ – implying that he and Kushner had engineered the Saudi coup.

The princes, including one of the world’s richest men, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, were arrested suddenly at the beginning of November, held in the Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh, and – a source told Dailymail.com later that month – being tortured.

Saudi authorities want to claw back $100 billion in assets which they claim the detainees have made through corruption. Many appear to have made settlements with the authorities to gain their freedom. 

The White House declined to comment to DailyMail.com but Wolff’s book revealed the warm relations with MBS and reported how Trump told friends: ‘Jared’s gotten the Arabs totally on our side. Done deal.’

Wolff writes that Salman, 32, befriended Kushner, 37, after the U.S. election, and ‘offered himself to Kushner as his guy in the Saudi kingdom.’

MBS was deputy crown prince at the time, but in March 2017 he was the first Muslim and first Middle Eastern leader to score a meeting with Trump at the White House.

Wolff’s book says the relationship between Trump’s team and the ambitious Saudi prince was cemented when the White House chose Saudi Arabia as his first foreign destination as president in May last year.

During their lavish reception in the kingdom, Trump, Kushner and their wives Melania and Ivanka were ‘ferried around in gold golf carts’ and treated to a $75 million party in the president’s honor, where Trump was seated on a ‘thronelike chair,’ Wolff wrote. The reception was off-camera. 

Salman and Trump struck a $350 billion arms deal, and in May MBS’s father King Salman made him crown prince, deposing Prince Muhammad bin Nayef who had been heir to the throne.

And in October, Kushner made a third, secret, trip to the kingdom where The Washington Post reported he ‘stayed up until nearly 4 a.m. several nights’ with MBS, just a few days before the November round-up.

Now DailyMail.com can disclose that MBS has told his own inner circle that his support from Trump did not end there, and extends to details of his financial plans.

Trump, he has said, agreed to allow the Saudi leader to seize all the U.S. assets of the Saudi officials he arrested in November, according to the source.

The assets include ‘real estate, companies, private jets, yachts and huge amounts of cash in short and long term investments,’ the source said.

Salman arrested 11 Saudi princes and 190 officials and businessmen on November 4, ostensibly as the result of a two-year corruption investigation, and has been interrogating them for weeks.

The claim of approval from Trump to proceed with the round-up comes from a source in Saudi Arabia.

‘Trump promised MBS the White House will provide all support needed to facilitate the transfer of all cash and assets on U.S. soil belonging to the detained royals to the direct control/ownership of the Saudi embassy in Washington,’ said the source, who asked to remain anonymous.

The source said MBS had said Trump had two conditions for the agreement. First that ‘all these assets remain in American banks and never ever get transferred back to Saudi Arabia.’

The president’s second condition was that ‘the transfer must be based on a power of attorney signed by the detained royals, by the Saudi foreign and justice ministries, and notarized by the US embassy in Riyadh,’ the source said.

The assets which the Saudi Arabian government wants to seize include the arrested Alwaleed’s multi-billion dollar investment company Kingdom Holding. He owns 95 per cent of it, having floated five per cent on the Saudi stock market.

DailyMail.com disclosed in November that Alwaleed, whose net worth is estimated at $17 billion, was among those being tortured.

Kingdom Holding owns substantial stakes in tech firms including Twitter, Lyft, Snapchat firm Snap Inc and Ebay. 

Other holdings include the Four Seasons Hotel chain in which Kingdom Holdings and Bill Gates are majority owners and a significant stake in Citigroup, the parent company of Citibank. 

Alwaleed owns a yacht formerly owned by Trump and a private Boeing 747 jet upholstered in gold and fitted with a throne – which will also be seized, according to the Saudi source.

The prince had been a fierce critic of Trump in the run-up to the election, using his twitter account to criticize him. 

Alwaleed was moved recently from the Ritz Carlton to Al-Ha’ir prison, south of Riyadh, which is also used to hold terror suspects and those protesting the kingdom’s human rights abuses.

This weekend it was revealed he is in talks to ‘settle’ his case but had not succeeded in satisfying MBS. 

‘He offered a certain figure but it doesn’t meet the figure required from him, and the attorney-general hasn’t approved it,’ a Saudi government official told Reuters.

Another source told the news agency  that he had offered to make a ‘donation’ to the Saudi government, which would avoid any admission of wrongdoing, and to do so from assets of his own choosing. But the government refused those terms, the source said.

Questions over what is happening to him and to Kingdom Holding had mounted.

A report in The Times in December said that Alwaleed was facing a demand for $7 billion and still holding out.

 Prince Alwaleed owns a lot of properties in Morocco, in Casablanca, and a lot of bank accounts loaded with cash. But retrieving those assets is proving a little more difficult.

Companies in which Alwaleed holds a significant stake did not respond to requests for comment from Dailymail.com.

The sticking point was that Alwaleed had offered 95 per cent of his Kingdom stake, but MBS wanted cash or assets, the Financial Times reported. 

It is unclear exactly what would happen if Alwaleed ceased holding 95 per cent of Kingdom Holdings and whether it would have to be declared to regulatory authorities in the U.S., UK and other countries where companies he has stakes in are registered.

However he also has more tangible assets, the source said. 

‘Prince Alwaleed owns a lot of properties in Morocco, in Casablanca, and a lot of bank accounts loaded with cash,’ said the source, adding: ‘But retrieving those assets is proving a little more difficult.’

MBS said last month week that ’95 percent’ of the suspects charged with corruption have agreed to a settlement.

‘We show them all the files that we have and as soon as they see those about 95 percent agree to a settlement,’ MBS told the New York Times.

‘About one percent are able to prove they are clean and their case is dropped right there. About four percent say they are not corrupt and with their lawyers want to go to court.’

MBS added that his public prosecutor suggested it could eventually ‘be around $100 billion in settlements.’

One of the other detainees still being held is Prince Turki bin Abdullah, who had been deputy governor of Riyadh province in the past and also alleged to have gifted a Malaysian prime minister, Najib Razak, $700 million in a part of a massive corruption scandal.

And Osama bin Laden’s half-brother, Bakr bin Laden, was also among those held. He is the head of the family construction firm, which is spelled Binladin.

His personal net worth was estimated at $7 billion. The Financial Times reported that some of the family firm’s shares had been transferred to the Saudi government, with people close to the family saying that Bakr bin Laden and his brothers had reached a settlement with the authorities.

Some of the seized funds from the arrested princes and billionaires may be used to underwrite NEOM, the Crown Prince’s planned $500 billion high-tech metropolis.

Proceeds may also go towards servicing the Kingdom’s $79 billion budget deficit, which has grown from a fall in oil prices and subsequent recession in the country.

The 75-year-old musical superstar reached a settlement last year with SONY/ATV with regards to the catalogue that Sony acquired from Jackson’s estate following his death for $750 million.
