Police Release New Body Camera Footage From Turpin ‘House Of Horrors’ Case

RIVERSIDE (CBSLA) — Police have released new body camera footage showing 17-year-old Jordan Turpin shortly after escaping from her abusive parents and the “House of Horrors.” “My parents are abusing — they abuse us,” said Turpin to a responding deputy. “This is one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. I’m terrified but I called because my two little sisters are chained up right now.” Jordan then proceeded to shop the deputy photos of her sisters chained up before being placed in the back of the deputy’s squad car. On Jan. 14, 2018, Turpin and her 12 siblings — then aged 2 to 29 — were rescued from their abusive parents, then 57-year-old David Turpin and 50-year-old Louise Turpin after Jordan escaped through a window and called 911 from a deactivated phone. According to prosecutors, 12 out of the 13 children were severely malnourished and punished. Only the youngest girl, who was three during the time of the trial, was healthy. The children were chained up, not allowed to shower more than once a year and were not allowed to have toys. When they weren’t…

Warriors’ coach Steve Kerr on Kings’ firing of Luke Walton: ‘He’s everything that you want in a coach”

SAN FRANCISCO — Steve Kerr’s coaching tree had a branch sawed off Sunday. Luke Walton, an assistant on Kerr’s staff with the Golden State Warriors from 2014-16, was fired Sunday by the Sacramento Kings, 17 games into his third season. Sacramento was 6-11 this season and failed to eclipse .500 in either of his first two seasons. “It’s a tough business,” Kerr said before his Warriors tipped off against the Toronto Raptors. “You’ve got to have everything lined up to last for a long time in this league. … Luke is one of the finest human beings I know in the NBA. He’s smart, he’s humble, he’s collaborative. He’s everything that you want in a coach. That’s why I asked him to be an assistant coach here years ago.” A member of Kerr’s first coaching staff, Walton has been fired twice since leaving to take the Los Angeles Lakers head coaching job in 2016. He has amassed a .408 winning percentage and never posted a winning season since leaving the Warriors. Related Articles Warriors’ Steve Kerr says Klay Thompson not yet cleared for full practice…

McDonald: 49ers win over Jaguars even more impressive than beating Rams

The 49ers are a .500 team in record only. While their 5-5 record isn’t going to be the cause for any parades, a 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday ranks as the high point of the season and is the best indication yet their hopes and dreams of doing something special remain intact. Yes, it was even more impressive than their 31-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. The Jaguars are nothing special, and in fact looked very much like a 2-8 team going nowhere. So what makes winning a game you’re supposed to win something extraordinary? Taking care of business. If there is such a thing as a trap game, this one was it. The 49ers were coming off a game in which they saved their season on a Monday night before a national television audience. They traveled cross country on a short week for a 10 a.m. game according to their own body clocks. Jacksonville is not a strong opponent, but the Jaguars came in with the reputation of being good defensively against the run. And the 49ers,…

Kurtenbach: The 49ers used a classic formula to turn their season around

It took two games — two wins, in seven days —  for the 49ers’ turn their season around. The next two games will go a long way to defining it. Credit to Kyle Shanahan and his team. Lesser teams would have started going through the motions after being punked, at home, by Arizona Cardinals backup Colt McCoy in Week 9. Instead, the Niners used the embarrassing loss as a rallying cry. And in the past two games, they have figured out who they are and what they do best. It’s a good thing, too. It came just in time to make the holiday season interesting. Blowout wins over the Rams on Monday and Sunday’s 30-10 beat-down of the Jaguars in Jacksonville have the Niners back to .500 — at 5-5, they are tied with the Minnesota Vikings for the seventh and final playoff spot in the NFC. You gotta love the NFL rewarding mediocrity by adding a seventh playoff spot last season. And wouldn’t fate have it that the 49ers are going to play the Vikings next Sunday at Levi’s Stadium? That is followed by…

Evander Kane has been skating at Sharks Ice away from the team, source says

SAN JOSE – Evander Kane, eligible to play NHL games again in just over a week, has skated at Sharks Ice away from the team, a source confirmed to this news organization. Kane has served 17 games of the 21-game suspension he was handed by the NHL on Oct. 18 for violating the NHL and NHLPA’s COVID-19 Protocol by submitting a fake vaccine card. He is eligible to play again on Nov. 30 when the Sharks play on the road against the New Jersey Devils. The Athletic first reported Sunday that Kane had skated at Sharks Ice on Saturday. Hours before their game with the Washington Capitals, the Sharks, as has been their routine this season, held a morning skate Satuday at SAP Center. Right now it is unclear how Sharks general manager Doug Wilson plans to handle Kane’s potential return to the organization. Asked Saturday night after the Sharks’ 4-0 loss to the Washington Capitals if he could share anything regarding Kane’s status with the team, coach Bob Boughner said he didn’t have any further information. “And that’s completely honest,” said Boughner, who said…

Instant analysis of 49ers’ 30-10 win over Jaguars: Such dominance will lead to NFC playoffs

This is the all-around excellence that can reprise the 49ers’ playoff legitimacy. What worked in Sunday’s 30-10 win against the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars — and what worked Monday night in upsetting the Los Angeles Rams 31-10 — is what the 49ers must continue to replicate. The NFC is still wide open, or so it looks for a 49ers team that’s leveled its record to 5-5 after last month’s four-game losing streak. Next Sunday, the 49ers can win three straight regular-season games for the first time since October 2019. Coming into Levi’s Stadium will be the Minnesota Vikings, a fellow NFC challenger at 5-5. After winning 34-31 over the Green Bay Packers (8-3), the Vikings will make their first visit to Santa Clara since losing 27-10 in the 2019 season’s divisional playoffs. “It’s just coming together, right at the right time, when we’re getting to the back half of the season and we’re getting hot,” linebacker Fred Warner said. “That’s just who we are, though. All along we’ve been trying to find our identity and it’s starting to show.” The 49ers have won three of their…
