By Alan Devall and Bob Mezan PERRIS, Calif. (Reuters) - Police said on Tuesday they were still seeking answers after finding 13 siblings starving in their parents' squalid Southern California home, some of them chained to beds under "horrific" conditions in an otherwise ordinary suburb. "I wish I could come to you today with information that would explain why this happened," said Captain Greg Fellows of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. "But we do need to acknowledge the courage of the young girl who escaped from that residence to bring attention so they could get the help they so needed." The parents, 57-year-old David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were arrested at their darkened, foul-smelling house after the girl's 12 siblings were found there.
