Police have said Lori Vallow and her new husband Chad Daybell has lied about the children’s whereabouts and even about their existence, with Chad Daybell allegedly telling one person that Lori Vallow had no kids, and Lori Vallow allegedly telling another person that her daughter had died more than a year earlier.
The tangled case spans multiple states and includes investigations into three separate deaths. Lori Vallow’s estranged husband, Charles Vallow, was shot and killed in Phoenix in July by Lori’s brother, Alex Cox. Cox, who claimed the shooting was in self-defense, died of unknown causes in December.
In August, Lori Vallow moved her family to Idaho. In October, Chad Daybell’s wife Tammy Daybell died of what her obituary said was natural causes. When Chad Daybell married Lori Vallow just two weeks after Tammy’s death, law enforcement became suspicious and ultimately had Tammy Daybell’s remains exhumed.
Lori Vallow Biography
Lori Vallow is an Idaho mother and podcaster being questioned by law enforcement officials who are trying to determine what happened to her two children, who have not been seen since September 2019.
In what is a very complicated web, Vallow’s new husband, Chad Daybell, has also been questioned by federal and local law enforcement agencies investigating the disappearance of children, ages 7 and 17.
In addition, the pair have three deceased former spouses between them. The former wife of Daybell and Vallow’s last two husbands both died relatively young. Authorities have revealed that they have reopened their investigation into the fall 2019 death of Daybell’s wife, Tammy, who died a few weeks before her husband, an author of Latter-Day Saints oriented literature, married Lori Vallow.
