Infamously dubbed ‘Cult Mom’ Lori Vallow is finally preparing to stand trial in the double-murder case against her. The case of course has captivated headlines around the world and is one of the many sensational murder trials in America over recent years.

But Vallow ‘s began in 2019 when she and her children JJ and Tylee moved to Idaho so that Vallow could be with her new boyfriend. But what ordinarily may have been a regular road trip to a new city, turned into a sinister nightmare. Both children vanished shortly after the move leading to several questions and later revelations about Vallow. Revelations that would disclose not only eyebrow-raising beliefs that she herself held but would unravel a sinister plot that led to the murder of her own children.

And then in a shocking twist the bodies of her kids were found in the backyard of her husband’s home after an exhaustive search for their persons. The case is now headed to trial with jury selection to begin on 3 April — all of which we’ll be extensively covering for Bazaar Daily News.

Vallow is charged with conspiring to kill her own kids and then sensationally steal their social security benefits.

Vallow Daybell and her husband, Chad Daybell, have long pleaded not guilty to a laundry list of charges including murder, conspiracy, and grand theft in the 2020 heartbreaking deaths of Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 16. In an odd twist, the couple is also accused of murdering Daybell’s ex-wife Tammy who had mysteriously died back in October 2019. Both are being tried separately.

Prosecutors are likely to hinge part of their argument against the duo on the bizarre discovery that they practiced apocalyptic belief (but that may have also been a ruse.) Months into the case, it was later discovered that the couple had plotted to steal the social security benefits and insurance money that would’ve belonged to the kids involved.

A separate trial which does not have a date yet is set to bring down the fate of Chad Daybell leaving Lori to go up first for her day in court.


The case actually began around November 2019 when family members of the kids reported them missing after not having heard from them in several months. Such being highly unusual at the time family members set out in search of answers, but what they got instead was a nightmare most would have never imagined. On 23 September 2019, the kids were believed to have been last seen in Rexburg Idaho.

Until they weren’t. At this point, Vallow and her husband fled to Hawaii all but refusing to cooperate with police in the investigation. Sometime while in Hawaii the couple formally announced the kids were missing and that they were likely to be in danger.

Instead the couple was later tracked down to Kaua’i Hawaii where they were found without the children triggering their extradition back to Idaho and the beginning of thhe sensational case against them. This occurred in January 2020.

Fast forward to June 2020, both kids were found dead in the backyard of Chad Daybell ‘s eastern Idaho home.

“We are filled with unfathomable sadness that these two bright stars were stolen from us and only hope that they died without pain or suffering,” said a statement via JJ’s biological grandparents, Larry and Kay Woodcock, the East Idaho News reported. 

A deadly religious nightmare turned reality

Prosecutors in the case are partially engaging their case against the couple over their beliefs. Officials say that the couple has always held some pretty bizarre religious beliefs. Friends reportedly told prosecutors early on that the twosome believed that people could be taken over by dark spirits. At one point, a former friend Melanie Gibb told prosecutors that Vallow had or would describe her children as ‘Zombies.”

KTVB reports that now that the trial is set to begin Vallow Daybell ‘s legal team is attempting to bar her family from portions of the trial.
