A house of horrors was discovered in Perris, California at the start of the week. David Turpin and his wife Louise Turpin are accused of keeping their 13 children captive by chaining them to furniture. The horrifying discovery was made after their malnourished teen daughter escaped from the house and called police. Law enforcement officials said the children were allowed to shower just twice a year and food may have been used to control the starving children.

Other major headlines of the week included sex abuse victims facing former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in court, the results of President Trump's annual health exam and a ballistic missile warning sent in error in Hawaii.
