The 17-year-old girl who escaped from the Perris, California, home where she and her 12 siblings were allegedly being tortured posted videos to YouTube using a pseudonym, according to reports.
ABC News claimed to have located a YouTube account possibly belonging to the Turpin teen. The last video she posted is believed to have been uploaded seven days before she broke out the home through a window and used a deactivated cell phone to call 911.
The videos reportedly show the 17-year-old singing songs. However, in one video where the teen is seen playing with her dogs, grime-covered walls and a pile of laundry are spotted in the background, according to the news station.
According to the report, the teen girl also had an Instagram account where she would mostly post selfies but occasionally posted pictures of Justin Bieber.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, the teen reportedly told officers that her parents were holding she and her 12 siblings captive and presented pictures to corroborate her story.
David and Louise Turpin are accused of withholding food from their 13 children in addition to limiting their bathroom use and allowing them to only shower once a year. Authorities said the Turpin children, who range in age from 2 to 29, have suffered physical and cognitive impairments due to the years of neglect.
Each held on $12 million bail, David and Louise Turpin have pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, including torture, abuse of a dependent adult, child abuse, and false imprisonment.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 14.
