The 17-year-old, who managed to flee the Perris home of her parents David and Louise Turpin, was allegedly held captive along with her 12 siblings.

The videos, released by the USA show Good Morning America (GMA), show the teenager singing mostly original songs to the camera, and according to GMA the most recent video was released just one week before she escaped via a window and alerted authorities, who rescued her remaining siblings. There was little sign that anything was amiss in the videos, as she performed her songs and occasionally played with a family dog.
