    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.

    6 Jan 2020 – Sheriff Len Humphries gives interviews about the case. He reveals Tammy may have been poisoned but says tests won't be completed for at least another two weeks. “We're looking for poison, but we are just having to wait for lab results,” Humphries said, “You could say we are in a sort of holding pattern right now.”
    More quotes from Sheriff Humphries:
    “From an investigation point of view this is a disaster,”
    “There are multiple agencies involved — us, Rexburg police, the FBI, as well as police departments in Arizona.”
    “There are people who have died strangely in several places, and two kids that we have absolutely no idea where they are.”
    “Add to that, the mother is known to have told family members that her daughter died a year ago, which we know is not true.”
    ”And then she claimed that the 17-year-old had run off with the 7-year-old and didn't say anything to authorities.”
    “What kind of parent doesn't help try to find their own kids when they are missing?”
    Humphries also said he believes Chad and Lori have left Idaho but are still in the United States (East Idaho News, Daily Mail).

    6 Jan 2020 - Tylee’s AZ friend shares the last text she received from Tylee’s phone was on Oct. 25 at 11:14 AM. The friend isn’t sure if Tylee sent the text. The friend texted Tylee on Oct. 19 to say she missed her and had been thinking about her. 6 days later a reply text said, “hi. miss you guys too ...luv ya.” The friend says she didn’t think the text sounded like Tylee. “She spelled out her words for the most part,” “Plus, she would have texted more if I reached out.” “When she lived here, she responded immediately,” the friend said, “And when she moved, it slowly decreased in response time.”
    The friend also shares: Tylee had originally planned to stay in AZ, but decided to go to ID for JJ’s sake. Tylee had her GED, so she did not go to HS in ID. Tylee had never mentioned her mother’s religious beliefs to her friend. Tylee said they were moving because Lori got a job in ID. “Apparently that was false,” the friend said. (Post Register).

    6 Jan 2020 - Ellsworth Family Law releases statement saying Charles Vallow “expressed genuine fear for his life and under our advice obtained an Order of Protection against Lori Vallow” in early 2019 (Fox10 Phoenix; Justin Lum Fox 10 on Twitter ).

    7 Jan 2020 – JJ’s grandparents, KW & LW, hold a press conference in Idaho. They are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the children’s whereabouts. They spent the weekend meeting with Rexburg PD & the FBI. JJ loves to swim and is hardly afraid of anything in life. Tylee is a typical teenage girl who graduated early from HS and has a close group of friends. KW & LW spoke with JJ several times a week and often those conversations were short, but it wasn’t unusual for JJ to call his grandparents back several times in the same day. Lori never prevented the Woodcocks from talking to or visiting with JJ. During their last 35 sec Facetime with JJ in Aug it appeared someone was monitoring what he said and he didn’t call back after that. They also noticed that JJ’s hair didn’t appear to be as groomed as it had been previously. Lori used to be a cosmetologist and took exceptional care of JJ’s hair. The picture of JJ on the missing poster shows his hair matted and not in it's usual style. KW & LW have launched a Find JJ and Tylee website asking for tips from the public.

    Some Quotes from the Jan 7th Presser:
    “These are beautiful young children. They’re two extremely intelligent young children and we want them back. We want them back in our family,” -LW

    “If there is anything that Lori can come forth with and help us, please do it. She knows how much we love these kids, and we want only the best for them. That’s it. It’s that simple. Please give them back to us.” -LW

    “All I want before I go is just to see those children, I just want to hear him beat on the drums, I want to hear him say, ‘Papa, let’s go ride’ or ‘Let’s go to Checkers and let’s go get a hamburger.’ I’m hoping beyond hope that that happens in the near future.” -LW

    “Sometimes [JJ] may call and say, ‘Papa!’ and then, he’d just go away. ‘Gotta go, bye!’” -LW

    “J.J. is my heart, I’m hoping this will allow one person to simply say ‘I saw (him). I know where he’s at,’ and give us that information, so that we can bring J.J. and Tylee back." -LW

    “We want and believe that they are alive, and that’s the reason for the reward,""It’s the reason, we don’t say, the ‘d’ word. We’re not going to because we hope and pray these kids are alive." -LW

    “If somebody two years ago would have said ‘This is what’s going to happen with Lori,’ I would have never believed it, Kay would have never believed it. If Kay and I would have had any thought in the future that we were going to be involved in an issue like this, we never would have let J.J. up for adoption. It never would have happened, and now this happened. Lori was a good mother when J.J. was young. You couldn’t ask for a better mother.” -LW

    “Lori, you know how much we love J.J. You know my heart beats for him. Kay loves him. All our family loves JJ. Pick up the phone. Call me. Call Kay. If you don’t want to talk to authorities, talk to us." – LW

    “If this reward can prompt that, then that’s what I want. They’re good kids. They don’t deserve this. And we as a family don’t deserve it.” -LW

    “Please, just let us know where the kids are. It’s not difficult. It would end all of this.” -KW

    “We don’t know why we weren’t allowed more access to him, but we reached out constantly in every way – email, voicemail, text, phone call, whatever – and never, ever got a response so that was very concerning to us,” -KW

    “It sends chills up our spines,” "That’s just (what) brought it home for us. ‘Oh, my God, this is something really bad.'" -KW, when asked about Lori’s false claims that Tylee died in 2017.

    “Charles suspected they were having an affair. He told me about it. He told me what he had that made him think that. He was spot on. There were just some things that we discussed, and he showed me (the evidence).” – KW, when asked about Lori and Chad’s relationship.

    They know what car was used. And Brandon knows who was in the vehicle (although he has declined to share that with the media.) So, why isn't that case moving forward?? What is going on in some of these other situations that is holding back an arrest? Is the suspect dead? Missing??

    Lori/Alex/etc. dad. He was using this language in flyers he distributed for his estate planning business --> "Barry L. Cox, Esq., Legal Document Writer." It was Nov 2018 that the Arizona bar issued the cease and desist.

    Quite a few things could be going on with these cases.

    Most jurisdictions won't make an arrest in an important case until and unless they think they can get a conviction. And while there's a lot of suggestive association in this case, much of it is not necessarily going to convince a jury.

    All or part of some of these cases could be in front of a grand jury (possibly more than one, since several jurisdictions are involved). Nothing will happen until and unless the grand jury returns an indictment.

    There may be related crimes we aren't aware of that are still being investigated that they want to bring charges for together.

    Since some information becomes public when charges are filed, it's possible that filing charges in one case would jeopardize the investigation of another.

    One or more jurisdictions may feel that filing charges in one or more cases would jeopardize the safety of the children, or of other innocent parties.

    They may be having difficulty determining exactly which jurisdiction certain crimes occurred in.

    Most likely, everybody in all jurisdictions is waiting for the results of the AC and TD toxicology testing.

    Agreed! If true things should start moving fast, one way or another. And hopefully it leads to finding out what happened to JJ and Tylee and where they are.
