House of Horrors survivor Jordan Turpin’s heartfelt message to donors who support her siblings
by Jordan Turpin ICT Tac account may house, at first glance, a cacophony of dance-filled videos that don’t seem too different from the rest flooding the video-sharing app – but the truth behind it and what the videos are working towards is more sinister than typical. .
“Hey guys, just wanted to drop by here real quick and say thank you so much for all the love and support,” Turpin, who was verified on TikTok this week, said in a recent video. Look above.
“Anyone who followed me or watched my videos, I appreciate you so much and I love you so much.”

The 21 year old is one of 13 children who escaped the so-called house of horrors – where their parents David and Louise Turpin kept them locked up in misery, starving, and for some children, chained to beds.
In 2018, Turpin, who was 17 at the time, escaped from the California home after calling authorities. His parents were later sentenced to life in prison.
“I was telling them everything. We’re not going to school. We’re living in filth. We’re starving. And everything else,” Turpin said of the 911 call to Diane Sawyer in November.
On TikTok, Turpin uses her platform to stand up for her siblings — some of whom she says are still struggling — and accepts donations through Venmo and Cash App.
“People ask me if I see my siblings often, how are my siblings doing,” Turpin said on TikTok.
“I want you to know, I see my siblings very often and I love them so much. We’re not in the best life situation right now, but we have a roof over our heads and we have a way to get food and we are all very grateful for that.”

Turpin also thanked those who donated to her, the money she says she gave to her siblings, who were between the ages of 2 and 29 when they were rescued.
“Now I can afford to give all my siblings some really great gifts this year and I’m so happy and grateful to be able to do that,” she said.
“I hope one day I can help you and others just as you have helped me. It means so much to me.”
