Family members say mother of missing children in Rexburg joined a dangerous cult with new husband Updated at 11:45PM, December 22, 2019 REXBURG, Idaho — Family members of a man and woman at the center of a nationwide search for two missing children in Rexburg, Idaho believe they may be members of religious cult infatuated with the end of the world. Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow have been on the run, accused of lying about the location of her missing children. [...] Brandon Boudreaux, who married into Lori Vallow’s family, said he believes her new religious beliefs have led to the deaths of multiple family members along with the disappearance of her children. “I spent the last 11 years of my life spending time with Lori and her now-deceased husband Charles,” Boudreaux said. “I don’t know what happened to those kids, but I know there’s people who do, and they’re not talking… I love them both. I hope they’re safe. They’re both just innocent and they didn’t deserve to be involved in any of this.” Boudreaux said his wife, Lori Vallow’s niece, decided to follow her aunt in joining a “cult” with Chad Daybell, a self-proclaimed Latter-day Saint author known for his religious books detailing the end of the world. The religious group is an offshoot of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints with more radical beliefs. Lori Vallow sometimes participated in podcasts with Chad Daybell, on the “Preparing a People Podcast Network.” Many of the podcasts featuring Chad Daybell have been removed from the website.
