“The stuff he was saying was about the kids,” Elizabeth Flores told the website, adding David cried: “I hope the kids can forgive me!’''
She added: “He kept hoping the kids would come visit him in jail.”
“He was telling me that no matter what happened with him, he hoped that he still had a relationship with his kids,” she told Radar exclusively. “That’s what he kept worrying about.”
David and Louise Turpin each pleaded guilty to 14 charges of torture, adult abuse, child endangerment, false imprisonment and more.
The pair, from Perris in California, were arrested after their 17 year-old daughter escaped last January and told police of the abuse she and 11 siblings aged two to 29 had endured.
Their victims were chained up and given regular beatings. All the Turpin children were found severely malnourished, with their 29 year-old daughter weighing just 82-pounds.
