The heartbroken sister of "house of horrors" mother, Louise Turpin, has claimed she too, was abused as a child.
In a shocking turn of events, 41-year-old Elizabeth Flores alleged that she and her troubled sibling have a long history of abuse in the family.
According to the New York Post, Elizabeth co-wrote a book series describing her dark past. In one of the tell-all memoirs, she claimed that the physical and mental abuse she suffered at the hands of her family members, began when she was just nine years old.
"Many things I have gone through as a child have caused deep suffering… Being molested, watching my mom being beaten and raped and being abused myself as a child combined to cause the fear of people, especially men," she wrote.
It is unclear whether Louise Turpin – the mother responsible for torturing her 13 children for years – suffered the same abuse.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Elizabeth previously opened up about her sister and brother-in-law, David Turpin. She claimed that while she thought they were alway strict and odd, she never saw any signs of actual abuse. She also stated that in the past few years, she hadn't been allowed to see Louise or speak to her and David's 13 children. Louise, 49, and David Turpin, 56, pled not guilty to child abuse charges. They are being held for further questioning.
