Cult mother Lori Vallow’s new husband Chad Daybell cashed $ 430,000 after his previous wife died in mysterious circumstances, two weeks before he married Vallow in Hawaii.
Vallow has been accused of desertion and non-support of dependent children. She is currently in custody in Kauai and is fighting extradition to Idaho, where the police want to know where her children JJ (seven) and Tylee (17) are.
The children have not been seen since the end of September and there are major concerns about their well-being, but Vallow refuses to answer questions about their whereabouts.
In a likely explanation for Vallow’s arrest and why her bail should be refused, Detective Ron Ball said that she and her new husband have significant “resources” as a result of the death of his first wife.
“Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell have considerable financial resources.

Chad and Tammy Daybell were married for 23 years before she died mysteriously in October. Her body has been dug up but the results of that autopsy have not yet been released
“I am aware that Chad Daybell received at least $ 430,000 in life insurance upon the death of his wife Tammy.
“As such, Lori and Chad have sufficient resources to help them travel and hide from law enforcement and the courts,” he said.
Daybell’s wife Tammy died in mysterious circumstances in October – two weeks before he married Vallow during a beach ceremony. At first it was determined that she had died of natural causes.
But when suspicion arose on Daybell and Vallow, the Idaho authorities decided to take Tammy’s body to perform more tests.
The results of that autopsy have not yet been released.
Lori did not comply with a court order on January 30 in Madison County to bring her children to the authorities. Joshua “JJ” Vallow, seven, and Tylee Ryan, 17, were last seen in Idaho in September in Rexburg, Idaho and the authorities are still looking for them

Retired FBI agent explains the case against Lori Vallow
Retired FBI agent Frank Montoya Jr.
Frank Montoya Jr., who withdrew from the FBI since 2016 after serving since 1991, explained to DailyMail.com on Friday morning that the Idaho authorities were forced to stop until there was any evidence of a crime that, in the case van Vallow, there has not been, because both children remain completely unwritten.
“What is frustrating is that the children are missing.
“If the parent himself does not cooperate … it is not enough to arrest them.
“What is the charge?” If it is only child threat and she refuses to talk, how do you prove that the children are harmed or more tragic when they are dead? You can’t do that.
“A judge and jury have no choice but to say that there is no evidence to hold her in such cases, you will be enormously dependent,” he said.
Montoya then explained what is likely to happen to Vallow. He also speculated about the different branches of investigation that the police in Idaho should look at now.
‘It’s a combination of things the kids still miss and the fact that she’s in Hawaii and they want to talk to her in Idaho. She can refrain from or dispute – if she disputes, there will be a hearing, the Idaho authorities will present their case. There is little chance that the judge will not deliver.
“[But] there are a number of things they work through; the death of her husband, for example Daybell’s ex-wife. They dig up her body to perform an autopsy.

“He was not arrested in an interesting way. Will he accompany her to Idaho or stay in Hawaii or continue? ”
He added that she is unlikely to be questioned about the whereabouts of Lori and JJ until she is back in Idaho and that the police want to keep her in a cell for as long as possible to try to break any solution she has.
“They will try to talk to her – of course she can invoke her right to remain silent.
“They have influence – even though there is a lot of craziness, suspicious behavior and strange things, this is not a hardened criminal. She never spent a few nights in prison.
‘What is the prospect of going to jail for 10-14 years? It remains to be seen whether she will cooperate.
“After spending time in a prison in Kauai, they may want to take her to Idaho and leave her in a prison in Idaho.
“I suspect they’ll wait until they get back to Idaho,” he said.
He added that it is unlikely that it will become clear what happened until her arrest warrant was unsealed.
“This is just another step – this is just another step,” he said.
Another theory that he says the police might be concerned is that Vallow and Daybell were obsessed with the Doomsday culture and the resurrection.
“The backup in all of this is its peculiar ways … there is a little time crisis.
‘People like this – what exactly is their intention? Part of these end of the world scenarios is that everyone is excited. Are her children the test case for that? Until she starts talking who knows … maybe this is the step to get her talking, “he said.
It also turned out that Lori was carrying both Tylee’s and JJ’s birth certificate, along with Tylee’s bank card and JJ’s iPad when the police searched their car.
Lori also had her teenage daughter’s cell phone.
Tammy and Chad had been married for more than 20 years before suddenly dying.
Lori’s brother Alex Cox died under mysterious circumstances on December 12
According to family members of Lori’s, she was fascinated by his religious books about his near-death experiences.
Some say the couple was fascinated by the end of the world.
Lori’s estranged husband, Charles Vallow, was shot by her brother in July.
Charles also had a life insurance policy that would have given Lori $ 1 million if he hadn’t turned the beneficiary into his sister before his death.
When Lori heard that she would not get the money, she sent an angry text message to the sister.
In November – after the children disappeared and both their former partners died – Lori and Chad got married.
The following month the brother of her who had murdered her estranged husband died in as mysterious circumstances as the wife of Chad.

Since Lori’s arrest, it has been claimed that her niece knows where Tylee and JJ are, but she refuses to tell anyone.
Melani Pawlowski was bound to the disappearance of the children when her ex-husband, Brandon Boudreaux, claimed to have followed her aunt in a dangerous doomsday cult and suggested that their radical religious beliefs played a role in the case.
Brandon and Melani are embroiled in bitter custody of their four young children since the mother suddenly applied for divorce in the summer.
In a new legal case, Brandon states: ‘Melani is involved in a cult in which countless members, adults and children have been killed like flies.
He further claims that his ex-wife knows where JJ and Tylee are, but refuses to cooperate in the investigation.
“Melani’s knowledge of the whereabouts of her aunt’s two missing children and her unwillingness to cooperate in law enforcement is discouraging,” FOX said.
It also claims that Melani’s current husband, Ian Pawlowski, whom she married on November 30, told the police that she “says that children are sometimes full of light and then just get dark.”
Brandon has long argued that Lori’s supposed cult ties were related to the disappearance of her children and the three dead, as well as an attempt at his own life last fall.
He was the target of a drive-by shoot on October 2, just when he came home from the gym in Gilbert, Arizona.
Brandon told the investigators that he saw a rifle with a silencer emerge from the back seat of a 2018 Wrangler Jeep seconds before a bullet smashed the driver’s side window of his Tesla and missed his head a few centimeters.
The police later determined that the Jeep was registered with Charles Vallow, Lori’s former husband who was shot by her brother Alex Cox in July.
The new court said: “Brandon believed that Melani, his then wife, had a million dollars in reasons to have him killed … hoping to cash in on the policy to help support the cult she is supposed to be a part of is of.
“Melani left Arizona almost immediately after the attempt on his life, without leaving a trail and leaving her children behind.”
The submission was a response to a recent petition that Melani had submitted to change their custody agreement.
Brandon claims that Melani is now looking for the amendment because “she thinks that the suspected death of her uncle, Alex, somehow freed her from her role in Brandon’s life attempt.”
