Benito and Carol Gutierrez were arrested on Tuesday and face three counts of child abuse each. And the children only escaped that misery because one of the boys escaped through a window of the house on Saturday, Feb. 17, and sought help.

Officers arrived to the house and allegedly found that each of the four children had been kept in their own bedrooms that were locked from the outside. The kid ran to a nearby store and requested to use the phone. The clerk, noting the age and disheveled condition of the child, called 911.

On raiding the couples' house, the police discovered three more children in their respective rooms, which were locked from the outside.


Benito Gutierrez, 69, and Carol Gutierrez, 64 were arrested on Tuesday for alleged child abuse after authorities discovered their four kids living in awful conditions.

For their deeds, the Tucson couple has been arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse.

The authorities went to the home and immediately removed the children.


The children were not fed and had no access to a bathroom, PCSD said. They were each held on a $25,000 bond.

In a similar case, Nicole Finn, an adoptive mother from Iowa, was found guilty of first-degree murder after her 16-year-old child, Natalie Finn, died October 2016 from cardiac arrest brought on by starvation. The Turpin children range in age from tow to 29. This was normal for them.
