Lori Vallow will spend the next 90 days in a mental hospital. The judge, who ruled that she was unfit for trial last month, decided on her placement on Tuesday in order to provide her with treatment “allowing her to restore her competence for a future trial,” ABC News reports. “The court concludes that the defendant lacks the capacity to make informed decisions about treatment and the court concludes that the defendant does not have a dangerous mental illness”, reads the order. placement. During her internment, she will be periodically assessed and progress reports will indicate whether she is “fit to continue” a trial. The husband of one accused of killing her two children in Idaho was also brought before the judge on Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty to the murders of the two young victims as well as that of his ex-wife. Chad Daybell was indicted at the same time as Lori Vallow for the murder of JJ and Tylee, aged 7 and 17, and for that of his wife Tammy, who died in 2019.
JJ and Tylee disappeared in September 2019 but the alert was not given until the following November by relatives. Their mother, Lori Vallow, refused to collaborate in the investigation and fled with Chad Daybell, her last husband, upon news of their disappearance. The couple were eventually found several weeks later in Hawaii and Lori Vallow was extradited and charged with concealment of evidence and conspiracy. She pleaded not guilty in September. Her husband was not arrested until June 2020, after the discovery of the bodies on his property.
Little 7-year-old JJ was wearing red pajamas. He had been placed inside a plastic bag, his ankles and wrists tied with duct tape. This tape had also been used to wrap plastic around the child’s face. The bodies were in a sort of animal cemetery set up on man’s land. It was there that authorities recovered a mass of burnt flesh and bones kept in a melted green bucket. Under this bucket, a partial human skull was discovered. Leftovers belonging to Tylee.
Members of a religious sect
The couple’s indictment does not provide details of how the victims were killed. The documents confirm, however, that Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow “endorse and follow religious beliefs in order to justify or encourage the killing” of the three victims. Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell are both members of a Mormon religious sect that is preparing for Jesus’ return to Earth and the end of the world. They reportedly explained to the police that their mission was to “get rid of the zombies”. According to the police, it is precisely because she felt that her children were now zombies inhabited by someone else’s dark spirit that Lori Vallow decided to attack them.
Separately, in addition to Tammy Daybell, whose death just two weeks before Chad Daybell’s remarriage to Lori Vallow, and was initially considered natural before being labeled a homicide, several other relatives of the couple have lost. life in strange circumstances. Thus, Lori Vallow’s third husband, Joseph Ryan, officially died of a heart attack, but the investigation revealed that the accused’s brother, Alex Cox, had threatened him in the past. This same Alex Cox then killed Charles Vallow, Lori Vallow’s fourth husband, and invoked self-defense. Alex Cox then died of a pulmonary embolism.
