Lori’s ex-husband, Charles Vallow, sought a divorce in 2019, telling a court that Lori believed she was a God-like figure who supposed to usher in the end times.
But Lori’s brother, Alex Cox, shot and killed Charles Vallow in the summer of 2019, claiming self-defense. Cox died several months later due to a blood clot in his lungs.
Following Charles Vallow’s death, Lori Daybell moved to Idaho with two of her children, 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan.
The missing children of Lori were JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan. They were eventually found on property buried.
The couple were followed by the press and filmed multiple times and asked where the children were and why they cannot be accounted for. the couple acted like nothing had happened and showed no remorse for their children being missing. The couple lied to investigators about their missing children and were seen in Hawaii enjoying a vacation while their children were killed buy them from the evidence found.
Lori and Chad kept proclaiming that they are in a safe place, and they are not going to be harmed.
