"The Turpin 13: Family Secrets Exposed"
Premieres Saturday, April 28 at 6 PM ET/PT on Oxygen
From reported financial woes and abandoned homes to unspoken concern from neighbors, O’Brien uncovers various red flags while looking into the couple’s history. Following their 30-year journey across the country, O’Brien travels to West Virginia where the couple first met, the remote Texas countryside where they once lived, and ultimately to the Turpin’s latest home on a quiet California cul-de-sac where the parents were arrested. Along the way, she speaks with Louise’s sister, Teresa Robinette, her half-brother, Billy Lambert, and some of the Turpin’s neighbors. She also consults with experts in child trauma, and law enforcement from the various counties and states where the Turpins resided. Questions are raised as family members and neighbors address concerns about their relationship and whether David and Louise's abrupt relocations were them running toward their future or running away from a painful family secret.
