Flores, who has seven children of her own, wrote on her website that she was a victim of child abuse.
Flores said her parents tried to visit the Turpin family multiple times, but they were not allowed or even given an address to the home, reported the New York Post. “My parents booked several flights to go see them but when they got there, they wouldn’t tell them where to go, and my parents left crying every time,” said Flores, adding, “They died before they got to see them again. It’s just heartbreaking, and I’m so embarrassed about all of this.”
David’s parents, James and Betty Turpin, who live in West Virginia, claim that they have not seen the family in four or five years.
