Girl who escaped from evil Turpin 'house of horrors' transforms life to become TikTok star

Jordan Turpin, 21, had barely seen the outside world when she escaped from her abusive family home in 2018 - and the case against her parents horrified the world. Four years on, her life couldn't be more different

Jordan Turpin has become a TikTok star after surviving her parents' cruel abuse

Four years ago, Jordan Turpin quietly climbed up to the windowsill of her family home in Perris, California, and slipped out of the window.

Having only been outside a few times in her life, the then 17-year-old was terrified of the world around her. But she knew she had to get help.

Jordan was one of 13 children being held captive by their evil parents, David and Louise Turpin in a "house of horrors."

There, the children were beaten, starved and chained to the bed. Living in squalor, they often carried injuries from their parents' attacks on them.

After her escape, Jordan managed to alert the police to the abuse going on in the Turpin household and David and Louise were arrested.

In 2019 they pleaded guilty to torturing and abusing their children and were jailed for 25 years to life.

Sentencing the cruel pair, Judge Bernard Schwartz said: "The selfish, cruel and inhuman treatment of your own children has deprived them, your family, your friends and society - and especially both of you - of those gifts."

"Their lives have been permanently altered, and their ability to learn, grow and thrive."

Recalling the day she escaped, Jordan told ABC News: "It was literally a now or never. If something happened to me, at least I died trying."

In the the chilling audio of the call she made to the police, Jordan describes her parents' abuse of her and her 12 siblings.

She says: "They hit us. They like to throw us across the room. They pull our hair. They yank out our hair.

"My two little sisters right now are chained up."

In an interview alongside her sister Jennifer, 33, Jordan added she walked along the road the day she called the police - because she'd never been on the pavement before.

Four years on from her escape, Jordan's life couldn't be more different.

The aspiring dancer now has nearly 500,000 followers on TikTok and has received millions of views on her videos.

In each video, she shares a snippet of a dance to a different song, claiming she loves to dance and write songs.

Despite unimaginable suffering in her childhood, Jordan's TikTok bio says: "I love helping other people."

And her smiley, happy dancing videos have earned her thousands of fans on the platform, who all support her dancing career and wish her well.

On her most recent video, one fan commented: "We must all protect her at all cost! (sic) She deserves all things great
