The Turpin's former Texas home was covered in feces and was uninhabitable, it has been revealed.
Nellie Baldwin bought the foreclosed home in Texas back in 2011 after the family fled as they feared the authorities were closing in on them.
And she revealed that the house was in a squalid state.
She said: "It was nasty and looked like it was uninhabitable.
"They had smeared feces on the walls in the living room and every room just had a terrible odor."
The couple stands accused of torturing and starving their 13 children, shackling them to their beds for months on end.
They have have pleaded 'not guilty' to charges connected mistreatment of their children, aged 2 to 29, which includes shackling some to their beds for weeks or months at a time and starving all but the toddler until their growth was stunted.
They were caught after their 17-year-old daughter through a window of their Perris house and called 911 on Sunday, Jan. 14. Riverside County sheriff's deputies then rescued her siblings and arrested the parents.
