SEE IT: ‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow husband Chad Daybell’s full arrest affidavit; did Daybell try to flee after JJ’s body was found?

-Chad Daybell watched investigators dig through his yard and took off in an SUV after investigators found JJ Vallow’s body
-Investigators targeted their search using cell phone data that placed Lori Vallow’s brother Alex Cox at Daybell’s property the morning after each missing child was last seen alive

Prosecutors in Madison County, Idaho, have released the arrest affidavit for Chad Daybell, who was taken into custody earlier this month after investigators found two sets of human remains on his property outside of Rexburg, Idaho. Authorities have since confirmed that the remains are that of Daybell’s wife’s two children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow, who had not been seen alive since September 2019.

The affidavit indicates that investigators targeted their search of Daybell’s property based on cell phone data that placed Lori Vallow’s now-deceased brother Alex Cox on the property on the mornings after each of the children were last seen alive. The documents indicate that Tylee and JJ died about two weeks apart in the month of September, and that their remains were disposed of in Daybell’s yard shortly after their deaths. JJ’s body appears to have been found intact, wrapped tightly in plastic, and it appears that Tylee Ryan’s remains were burned; possibly dismembered.

The documents also show that Daybell watched investigators dig through his yard on June 9, and drove off in an SUV after he apparently witnessed them locate JJ’s body. He was apprehended shortly after, less than a mile from his home.
