Cadaver Dogs May Be Used To Search Perris 'House of Horrors'

Investigators are still looking for answers in the case of the 13 tortured siblings held in a Perris, California home. 

Law enforcement officials are reportedly considering using cadaver dogs at the home of to search for remains at the Riverside County home as well at the home they had in Texas. Authorities want to know if it's possible the couple had other children that were not present when authorities found the 13 siblings chained up at a Perris, California home. 

Crime Watch Daily reports that officials are taking DNA samples from each of the 13 siblings to make sure they are all related. 

Officials say the siblings were chained to furniture, beaten, and starved for years before one child, a 17-year-old, escaped and called 911 last Sunday. The siblings are currently recovering from their injuries at area hospitals. 

The parents, David Allen Turpin and Louise Turpin, have been held on $12 million bail each.  Both Turpins face multiple felony charges including 12 counts of torture, 12 counts of false imprisonment, seven counts of abuse of a dependent adult and six counts of child abuse. 

Two dogs were also found at the Turpin's home, and appeared to be well-fed and well-treated. Perris city officials say they plan on raffling off the dog to a new home on February 2nd.
