Lori Vallow’s husband Chad Daybell ‘in custody’ after ‘human remains’ reportedly found on property – The Sun

HUMAN remains were reportedly found on Tuesday on the property of Chad Daybell, the husband of "cult mom" Lori Vallow.

The FBI, local authorities, and Fremont County sheriff's deputies investigated Daybell's home in Idaho early Tuesday morning.

Reports from East Idaho News and KUTV claim law enforcement officials were searching for clues related to the disappearance of Vallow's missing children Joshua "JJ" Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 17.

Witnesses told EastIdahoNews.com they saw Daybell get taken into custody around 11.30am on Tuesday, roughly a mile from his home.

They told the news outlet they saw Daybell wearing a baseball hat, a gray buttoned shirt, and blue jeans.

The witnesses said they saw Daybell get out of his silver SUV before getting handcuffed and put into a police vehicle.

It wasn't immediately clear what authorities were looking for at the home in Rexburg.

JJ and Tylee were last seen in September, but it wasn't until November that they were were reported missing by JJ's biological grandparents.

Vallow's children disappeared less than two months after the homicide of her ex-husband Charles Vallow, and the 'cult mom' married new husband Daybell six weeks after JJ and Tylee disappeared.

The newlyweds reportedly believed themselves to be members of a "doomsday cult."

In an interview published on Thursday, Vallow's close friend Melanie Gibb said she no longer expects the children to be found alive.

"They're not on this planet anymore. I don't think they are," Gibb told the East Idaho News.

"That's my personal opinion. Tylee is a very strong-willed individual, and she's capable of making a phone call if she needs to call, and she hasn't reached out to anybody and let anybody know she's alive."

Gibb previously said the couple called her just before Thanksgiving last year and asked her to lie to cops about the kids' whereabouts.

She has also claimed Daybell's religious teachings are dangerous, and that he told her not to answer cops if they contacted her about JJ and Tylee.

Vallow was arrested by cops in Hawaii in February after failing to show proof of life for her children and extradited to Idaho.

She was charged with two counts of desertion and nonsupport of her children.

Vallow also faces charges for obstructing an officer, solicitation of a crime, and contempt.

Daybell and Vallow are under investigation for "conspiracy, attempted murder, and murder", according to the East Idaho News.
