HIXON, TN (BY: MARTIN GOULD, DAILYMAIL.com) - House of Horrors dad David Turpin kidnapped his tenth-grade sweetheart from her high school and took her on a wild 1,000-mile cross-country trip in a vain bid to elope.
He persuaded school employees in Princeton, West Virginia, to release 16-year-old Louise Robinette to him without her parents' knowledge more than 30 years ago, two of Louise's siblings have revealed exclusively to DailyMailTV.
And they got all the way to Texas before they were finally caught and returned home.
Louise's younger sister and half-brother, Teresa Robinette and Billy Lambert, gave the full details of the twisted life of the California couple who have shocked America with the alleged years-long torture of their 13 children, who range in age from two to 29.
'I have four siblings now instead of five,' she said. 'She is off my family tree, she is dead to me. I couldn't care less about speaking to Louise ever again.'
And Billy Lambert added: 'I think they should get life. That's not just spur-of-the-moment anger, I'm not changing that view.'
