Perris Home Where Torture, Abuse of 13 Children Was Reported Goes Up For Sale

A house in Southern California where police say a couple tortured or abused most of their 13 children is for sale.

The Riverside Press-Tribune reports that the house in Perris where authorities say David and Louise Turpin shackled their children to furniture went on the market Saturday.

The auction for the four-bedroom house with an appraised value of $353,138 ends on Wednesday.

The couple has pleaded not guilty to charges that could carry a life sentence. They were arrested in January when a daughter escaped from the family’s home and called 911.

The couple remains in custody, and the house was foreclosed in November.

Investigators say some of the children had stunted growth and wasted muscles and described being beaten, starved and put in cages.
