    Police searching for Rexburg children believed to be in serious danger | East Idaho News

    I believe this is going to be a more complicated case than it looks on the surface. The children's mother (Lori Wallows) recently married a man (Chad Daybell) a few weeks after his wife died. It was presumed the late wife had died of natural causes but was exhumed recently and her death is now being investigated.
    The new wife's husband was shot in a family argument earlier this year:

    Chandler Police identify man who was shot dead during family fight

    The husband and wife are not cooperating with police and have since vanished.

    25 Dec 2019 – Christmas Day.

    26 Dec 2019 - Preparing A People removed Chad and Lori’s podcasts and issued a statement denying they are a cult and claiming Chad had not spoken at one of their events since Feb 2019.

    27 Dec 2019 – An anonymous friend says Lori became obsessed with Chad's books about 4 years ago. Friend says she can't wrap her head around what's happening; remembers Lori as amazing mother who devoted herself to Tylee and Joshua;

    "She would fly her daughter's friend from Arizona to come see her just so that she would have a better week. I mean she's like mother of the year here," she remembered.

    But now she realizes there may have been red flags, "She was 100% into the end of times, the end of the world and she would tell me no you really gotta start preparing for the end of the world. You gotta start getting your stuff together. She would order stuff all the time she would tell me I needed to read all these books," her friend said. The books written by Chad were a fictional series called "Standing in Holy Places." "Those books she got really obsessed with and she started buying me those books too. She must have gotten close to him from his books."

    "Lori would say things to me like 'I'm never gonna get divorced again. I'm on my fourth husband.'" Adding, "And then she would tell me, 'You gotta get rid of your husband. We'll just go off and do our own thing.'"

    Lori would allegedly say, "It's gonna be the end of the world and we should all just drive off a cliff and kill us and our kids and die all at the same time." (Fox7Austin)

    27 Dec 2019 – Julie Rowe says Chad had visions Tammy would die. “Angels had told him that he was going to lose Tammy,” Julie told a local TV station . Julie said Chad told her he wanted to get out of the publishing business but that Tammy did not.
    “He said I’m ready to get out and Tammy doesn’t want to get out. When she passes, I’m done, I can’t keep doing this.”
    Julie also say the missing children are safe. “I do know the kids are safe. I can see them,” she said. “I can see their energy and that they’re in a bright house.” (The Daily Beast)

    28 Dec 2019 - Rexburg Police Capt. Gary Hagen told “I don’t think we’re any closer than what we were two weeks ago … (and) time is always of the essence in any case, especially something like this.” Hagen also addressed rumors that this is all related to a child custody battle. “That’s what they claim, but we have proved that there is no active custody battle,” Hagen said. (KSL News)

    30 Dec 2019 – LE releases statement: “We know that the children are not with Lori and Chad Daybell, and we also have information indicating that Lori knows either the location of the children or what has happened to them,” the release says. “Despite having this knowledge, she has refused to work with law enforcement to help us resolve this matter. It is astonishing that rather than work with law enforcement to help us locate her own children, Lori Vallow has chosen instead to leave the state with her new husband.” Rexburg Police Department

    30 Dec 2019 – Rexburg PD says Lori told witnesses Tylee died a year before the death of her father Joseph Ryan - which is false. This happened weeks after Tammy Daybell’s death. Police say Chad Daybell also said Lori had no minor children.

    30 Dec 2019 – Actress Valentina and filmmaker Devin K Hansen say they have not heard from Chad since Sept 23, 2019 and that the project to make his book into a movie is officially canceled (Fox13).

    Alex's attorney on this case was Lori's attorney who handled her custody battle with Joe Ryan. The Hindera Law Firm.

    I noticed while editing the timeline that Lori's Venmo has now been made private: Lori Vallow

    Are you reading here Lori and Chad? If so, PLEASE just tell police where JJ and Tylee are. Making all your social media private isn't going to make this case go away. Either Tylee and JJ are alive and well or something happened to them. Police say you know what happened. It's time to tell them what you know.

    According to (which was first to pop up when I googled “Emotion Code Practitioner”)

    Your Certified Emotion Code Practitioner has been trained to help you discover and release your trapped emotions, which will help your body's natural ability to heal itself return, often resulting in a reversal of the disease process and a disappearance of emotional and physical ailments.

    (Bold NOT by me)

    Apparently there’s a test people can take and the ECP interprets the results.

    If Chad and Lori showed up - since the encounter for them with law enforcement was just 3 days prior - there would be a lot to talk about. Of course, it is also possible that the encounter with law enforcement that put Chad and Lori on the run was what set things in motion with others getting married.

    Lori was married to his adopted father, Charles and they both adopted him. She is not a blood relative but Charles is.
