‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow gets glam for Arizona mugshot, faces two more murder charges

Officials have extradited so-called “cult mom” and convicted killer Lori Vallow from Idaho to Arizona to face one first-degree murder charge and one premedicated first-degree murder charge in Maricopa County.

Vallow, who was found guilty in May of murdering two of her children and her husband’s first wife in Idaho in 2019, is also accused of killing her ex-husband, Charles Vallow, and her niece’s former husband, Brandon Bordeaux, in 2019. 

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will be holding a press conference at 2 p.m. regarding Vallow’s charges.

“MCSO deputies departed Maricopa County by vehicle, traveling to Pocatello, Idaho to take custody of, and extradite, accused murderer, Lori Vallow. Deputies from the extradition detail, F.A.TE. and K-9 traveled by vehicle, as it was determined weather conditions could impede seamless transfer due to potential air travel complications,” MCSO said in a Thursday morning statement.

“Pursuing criminals and bringing them to justice is what we do, and we’re very good at it,” Sheriff Paul Penzone said in a Thursday statement.

An Arizona grand jury indicted Vallow after an Idaho jury on May 12 convicted Vallow of murdering 7-year-old J.J. Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan around September 2019, and conspiring to murder her husband Chad Daybell’s first wife, Tammy Daybell, in October 2019. She was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Authorities in Gilbert, Arizona, believe that Vallow also conspired with her brother, Alex Cox, to shoot her niece’s ex-husband, Bordeaux, on October 2, 2019, just weeks before Tammy died, as FOX 10 Phoenix first reported.

Months earlier, in July 2019, Cox allegedly shot Lori Vallow’s ex-husband, Charles Vallow, to death in Chandler, claiming self-defense. Two months later, in September 2019, Tylee and J.J. disappeared. Cox died later that year of an apparent blood clot in December 2019.

Years of chaos and mystery ensured as officials searched for J.J. and Tylee, Daybell and Vallow escaped to Hawaii, and then the pair spent years behind bars before Vallow’s trial eventually began last spring.

In June 2020, investigators found J.J. and Tylee’s bodies buried on Chad Daybell’s Rexburg, Idaho, property. 

J.J. had been wrapped in plastic and died of asphyxiation by a plastic bag over his head. Tylee’s manner of death remains unknown, as her body was dismembered, and remains were burned before she was buried, prosecutors revealed during the trial.
