Police in Idaho have executed another search warrant at the home of Chad Daybell, where the remains of his stepchildren Tylee Ryan, 17, and 7-year-old JJ Vallow were found earlier this month.
EastIdahoNews.com reports that Rexburg police arrived at Daybell’s home on Monday afternoon. Daybell is in custody in Fremont County following his June 9 arrest, and his daughter and son-in-law are now living at the home in Salem, just outside of Rexburg. According to the report, the police showed paperwork to Daybell’s son-in-law before they entered the home.
Investigators were reportedly seen in the backyard taking photos. They also reportedly examined exterior buildings on the property and spent some time inside the home. They were at the property for just over and hour-and-a-half, according to the report, but it is unclear what evidence they collected.
The report notes that the search warrant was likely connected to the deaths of Daybell’s stepchildren, who had been missing since September 2019 before their remains were found at the property. Daybell and his wife Lori Vallow, the children’s mother, are both facing felony charges in connection to the children’s disappearance and in Daybell’s case, the burial of their remains, but neither have yet been charged with murder.
The sudden death of Daybell’s former wife Tammy Daybell in October 2019 is also under investigation, but authorities in Fremont County, not Rexburg police, are leading that investigation. According to EastIdahoNews.com, Madison County Prosecuting Attorney Rob Wood declined to comment on the search warrant that was executed Monday.
Authorities have not yet released the results of the children’s autopsies, pending further testing.
