Lori Vallow Daybell


Born Lori Norene Cox on June 26, 1973, in San Bernardino, CA, married five time, raised Mormon, mother to Colby Ryan, and Tylee Ashlyn Ryan(2002 –2019), and Joshua Jaxon "J. J." Vallow (2012–2019). Tylee was last September 8, 2019; J.J., was last seen alive on September 23, 2019. 

November 2019, police questioned Lori about the children's whereabouts and welfare. Lori and her new 5th husband, Chad Guy Daybell, claimed that J.J. was with family friend Melanie Gibb in Arizona, when police spoke to Gibb, she told them that J.J. was not with her and had not been there for several months. Later, Gibb called police saying that both Lori and Chad had asked her to lie to police. Lori's estranged 4th husband, Charles Vallow, was shot and killed July 2019 by Lori's brother, Alexander Cox, who claimed self-defense. Cox died of a blood clot on December 12, 2019. Early October 2019, Chad's wife, Tammy Daybell, was attacked in her driveway and on October 19, she died in her sleep from what was initially recorded as "natural causes". 

February 20, 2020, Lori arrested in Kauai, Hawaii and was extradited to Idaho on March 5, 2020. June 9, 2020, police executed a search warrant at Chad's home and discovered the remains of J.J. and Tylee. Chad was arrested later that day. May 25, 2021, Lori and Chad were charged with the first degree murders of Tylee, J.J., and Tammy. [cited Wikipedia]
