Tammy Daybell’s autopsy is complete. The former wife of Chad Daybell died in her sleep while training for a marathon. In fact, Daybell died just two weeks before Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell wed, and just a month before the Vallow children disappeared. No autopsy was performed at the time of her death since comments made by Chad Daybell lead authorities to rule her death as natural causes, and the family did not want an autopsy done.
As CrimeOnline reported, Tammy Daybell died in her sleep in mid-October 2019, and her family had authorized her burial without an autopsy. At the time of her death, authorities in Idaho were not aware that Vallow’s two children, 16-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow, had both been missing since September 2019.
Investigators discovered the children were missing during a requested welfare check at Vallow’s home in late November. Vallow and Daybell are both accused of lying to police on the day of the welfare check: Vallow about her children’s whereabouts, and Daybell about his relationship with Vallow.
