Biography

The Turpin case is a case of alleged child abuse and captivity discovered on January 14, 2018 in Perris, California, United States.

Suspects David Allen Turpin (born October 17, 1961) and Louise Anna Turpin (born May 24, 1968) were married in 1985 in Pearisburg, Virginia when David was 23 and Louise was 16 years old. The couple eloped, angering her father, church pastor Wayne Robinette.

David Turpin, according to his parents, is a computer engineer who graduated from Virginia Tech. In 1979, he graduated from Princeton High School in West Virginia. The school's 1979 yearbook listed him as the treasurer of the Bible Club, co-captain of the Chess Club, and a member of the Science Club and Acapella Choir. Louise Turpin's occupation was listed in court documents as a homemaker. The couple are adherents of the Quiverfull movement and Pentecostalism. According to David Turpin's parents, the couple kept having children because "God called on them" to have so many children. The children's homeschooling involved memorizing the Bible, and a few tried to memorize it in its entirety. David Turpin made about $140,000 per year at Northrop Grumman and had about $150,000 in assets. The Turpins declared bankruptcy in 2011, owing debt between $100,000 to $500,000.
