The “House of Horrors” girl who escaped imprisonment at the hands of her parents and alerted authorities to the plight of her and her 12 siblings posted YouTube videos under an alias, according to reports.

The videos showing her singing also giving glimpses of the squalid conditions that she and her siblings lived in before being rescued.

David and Louise Turpin were arrested and charged with numerous crimes, including multiple counts of torture and child abuse, after authorities received the tip in January.

Police officers in Perris, California, east of Los Angeles, rushed to the home and were shocked to find the Turpin children imprisoned, with some even being shackled to beds and other furniture.

All of the 13 siblings, ranging in age from 2 to 29 years of age, were severely malnourished.

Since the rescue, the children have been split up between a medical center and two foster homes as authorities struggle to decide what to ultimately do with them.

The Youtube clips of the girl, whose identity has not been released, reveal glimpses of the squalid conditions that the Turpin siblings lived in.

In one, a huge pile of dirty clothes is seen in the corner of a room.

Another shows dirty smudges on a door.

One of the clips shows the girl playing with one of the family’s dogs, which, along with the 2-year-old, were the only ones under the Turpins’ care that were not chronically malnourished.

The videos were discovered by ABC, which said the last one was posted just seven days before the girl made her escape.

The network said that the girl also had an Instagram account, which was mostly comprised of selfies.

None of the victims have been named publicly nor have any spoken to reporters.

David and Louise Turpin, meanwhile, are in jail awaiting their next court date of March 23.

Both have pleaded not guilty to dozens of charges, including torture, child abuse, and false imprisonment. They both face up to life in jail.

The couple allegedly starved, choked, and beat their children.

Authorities also allege that the Turpins only fed their children one meal a day and only let them shower once a year.
