    Brother may have accompanied the parents out there too. Doesn't mean they were chummy with one another. I've attended family things, and sat at tables with kin I've disliked, to put it mildly, and grinned and chatted, for my parents. My parents don't know to this day that I dislike that person(s).

    Hi all. Any developments in the Turpin case in the past week or so? When is the next court appearance?
    If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, on where you stop your story.

    I want to know what the Ts will say. This case is haunting.

    I have no reason to doubt what LE says.
    These children were so malnourished that the doctors and nurses cried.
    Regardless of how tall some of the girls were, that doesn't mean they weren't starved.

    IMO

    Hmmm. Well, it did get me thinking about their ages some more.

    It does appear in the CNN article that a 12 year old is referenced:
    http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/19/us/cal...pin/index.html
    One of the victims is age 12 and is the weight of a 7-year-old while the 29-year-old was 82 pounds, Hestrin said.
    If that is accurate, and it was linked earlier that he mentions the 11 & 14 year old in shackles. So is there an 11 year old and 12 year old as well?

    Not important in the grand scheme of things, I suppose, but it caught my eye none-the-less.

    My understanding is that the parents are in jail, not in prison.

    The confusion may have arisen as jail is often considered synonymous for prison outside of the US.
    In the US, [T]he most notable difference between jails and prisons is that prison inmates have been tried and convicted of crimes, while those in jail may be awaiting trial, where they may yet be found innocent.

    I doubt we will get many updates on the condition of the children/adults due to their rights to privacy. I am certain they are out of the hospital and receiving therapeutic care through occupational, physical, nutritional, mental health, speech & language, hearing, vision, and medical professionals. I would hope they have sibling visits with each other frequently in a therapeutic setting and again in a relaxed, nurturing and safe environment weekly. I hope they get to make valentines for each other and each one of them get to have a sweet treat tomorrow. I truly hope they get to experience multiple adventures, sensations, art and culture and many things of beauty. I bet they are beyond happy that they get to experience real education and possibly even real school with socialization and peers. What wonderful and exciting experiences await them.

    I feel it is safe to say that at least one of the girls, if not more, will get their genes from Mom and be short like she is.

    Of course, a few might get a mixture of genes and be about 54-55.

    From the pictures, it appears that many of the older children got the tall gene from their father.

    One of mine is nearing 30 and still gets carded. At age 16, restaurants were still giving her the child's menu when we sat down. She may have just looked like an extremely frail ten year old, who, in a normal life, might have looked like a healthy ten year old, at age 17.

    Any updates?

    We know that the older adults are in assisted living (six of them.) The six minor children AFAIK are in two sets of foster homes. Is that correct? Do we know anything about the families that have the minor children, or the care facility housing the adults?

    If there was ever any logic to that argument, it was lost on me (eta...from last night, not yours). I actually still get carded from time to time and I have a few years on yours. I also make tall kids, so .... No arguments here

    I didn't mean to appear to entertain that person's notions about the rest of it. I just noticed they were going on about a 12 year old and I was confused.


    But I wrote down (on actual paper with circles and arrows) the ages from bankruptcy doc dated Aug 2011 and the ages from the news conference giving info about Jan 2018 ages and I think I've got it straightened out now...for now.
