21 Mar 2020 [...] “Melani had been told by Chad and Lori that their children had been possessed and had become zombies … she told me she was worried that ([Alex] Cox) may have had to ‘take care’ of the kids," [Ian] Pawlowski allegedly wrote. Apparently, Melani didn’t doubt that this was something Cox was capable of doing to her cousins. “She explained that (Cox) had great faith and never wavered in his trust in the Lord. No task would be too difficult or great for him,” Pawlowski allegedly wrote. That’s when Pawlowski started to panic. “At that point I became worried, but told myself there’s no way I just married into a situation so sinister. I spent the next two days trying to justify my actions and reassure myself that everything was fine, but I couldn’t get to that point,” he allegedly wrote in the documents found by his ex-wife. Shortly after, Pawlowski's ex-wife Natalie decided to go to the police about Melani. Natalie was concerned for the safety of the children she shared with Pawlowski. Pawlowski reportedly decided to go with Natalie to help “lay out everything I understand” to the Rexburg police. The police reportedly gave Pawlowski a device to secretly record phone conversations with Daybell and Vallow, but the child custody documents said he was never able to capture “anything substantial.” According to his alleged writings, Pawlowski said he eventually admitted to Melani that he’d been talking to police. Pawlowski said Melani is no longer sure what she believes about the “religious aspects” anymore. “I’ve come to believe she truly doesn’t know anything about who shot at Brandon or where the kids (Tylee and J.J.) have gone … Melani has been put through the ringer because of their (Chad and Lori's) paranoia and now is in the hot seat because I went to the police and tried to help. I know she’s done nothing wrong and I want her free from this," Pawlowski allegedly wrote. As for Daybell and Vallow, Ian wrote that he still has his doubts and lots of questions. “Why not simply provide proof that the kids are okay and put an end to this insanity? Isn’t it off that the two detectives assigned to your case happen to by 2 of the Cain’s dark fifty? … Your kids are missing and it doesn’t come up once during a handful of lengthy conversation?” Boudreaux declined to comment on the custody documents. The next custody hearing for Boudreaux and Melani’s children is set for March 26. Zombies and Cain’s dark 50: Court documents offer a look at what those close to Lori Vallow have to say BBM.
