Chad Daybell came into the spotlight when his wife's two minor kids went missing, and they became the person of interest in the case. Daybell is now in arrest after finding human remains at his property.
Chad Daybell is Husband of Lori Vallow
Chad Daybell tied the knot with Lori Vallow on November 5, 2019, in Hawaii in a private ceremony. This was the second marriage for Chad and fifth for Lori.
Chad's first wife, Tammy Daybell, died on October 22, 2019, in her sleep at their home in Salem. Detectives at that time ruled the death as natural. The couple shared five children.
On the other hand, Lori's fourth husband, Charles Vallow, was shot and killed on July 11, 2019, by Lori's brother Alex Cox, who is also now dead.
As per the records, Lori was fascinated with Chad's beliefs and writings. Thus, they first communicated in October 2018 through email, where she asked to judge whether her kids and husband were "Light or Dark Spirits."
Nearly two months after their first conversations, the couple made their first appearance together on the Preparing a People Podcast Network's Time to Warrior Up. After that, she featured in several podcasts with her now-husband Chad and served divorce paper to her then-husband Charles Vallow in February 2019.
Lori Vallow's Kids Went Missing
When Lori Vallow married Chad, she was a parent to two minor children; 17-year-old Tylee Ryan who is a daughter born to Lori and her third husband Joseph Ryan Jr. (he died on April 3, 2018) and Joshua "JJ" Vallow who was adopted by Lori and her fourth husband, Charles Vallow. He is the grandson of Charles sister Kay Woodcock who is married to Larry Woodcock.
On November 26, 2019, the Rexburg Police Department conducted a welfare check for JJ at Chad and Lori Home on 565 Pioneer Road at the request of the extended family. The family was worried since they had not spoken with the 7-year-old since September.
On the check, the Daybells informed the police that JJ is currently visiting a relative in Arizona. The police left at that time and started an investigation in Arizona, however, they soon realized that the information provided to them by Chad and Lori was false. When the police came the next day, Mr. and Mrs. Daybell were already fled to Lihue, Hawaii.
As there was no news of missing Kids, on January 25, 2020, the Kauai Police Department served Lori Daybell with a notice that she must produce JJ and Tylee to the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare or Rexburg Police Department in five days. Lori missed the deadline and she was arrested and charged with two felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children. Her case is currently going on in Rexburg, Idaho.
Despite the arrest and charges, Lori and her husband has not given the whereabouts of the missing Kids. She is using the Fifth amendment. Hence the search for the missing kids went on.
