    With all people like this, just lock them up. There is no redeeming quality

    I found their facebooks. None of them even mention or show the little girl.

    From article:

    "A pediatrician at St. Francis Children's Hospital said the girl had extensive bruising, lacerations consistent with being restrained by handcuffs and was malnourished."

    Please assure me that this family will never again have the ability to harm any other children! Horrible what guardians can inflict on those dependent on them. Disgusted.

    Sounds like David and Louise Turpin's demonic souls were in the "Caregivers?" of this poor little girl. Hopefully, the perpetrators in this case will be brought to justice and receive the harshest possible penalty under the laws of Oklahoma. Sure there is much more to come.

    Good golly, I’m glad she escaped before she died from their abuse!!! How long was she with these monsters?? Did no one check on her? Children’s Services, other family members?

    Now she can heal physically, emotionally and get caught up on her education. Having enough food to eat, a clean bed to sleep in and people who truly care about her will allow her to blossom.

    Ironically (I think), the Turpins were just about to move to OK when all that broke last year.

    Another bruised, bloody inaccurate blotch on the term "homeschooling!"

    So sorry, young lady!

    I’m pretty sure they’re not allowed to. May be a state specific thing though.

    Doesn’t change the fact that they’re horrible monsters, of course.

    I agree with flute4peace that it is probably not allowed to post about foster children. Not sure. FWIW I never put my own minor children's pictures or mentioned them on my facebook for public viewing either. I do hope this little girl gets the help and love she needs :(

    In Florida we can post pictures but not give their names. I have friends who are foster parents and they share so many pictures. It's amazing to see the kids progress and happiness.

    News on 6 journalist Lori Fullbright’s professional Facebook page. I hope this is considered main stream media. The mother is posting in the comments. What a sad situation all around.

    The mother identifies herself in the comments but no, we cannot post her name.

    I did not know. Is this another homeschooling abuse case? Was the 9-year old girl home-schooled?

    From the news article:
    “The parents reportedly said they had taken the child from school in 2017 and taught her using "Leap Frog" on a tablet.”

    I should have clarified that I was referring to the biological mother when I stated we could not post her name. She did identify herself in the comments though. The perps are related to the child but they are guardians.
