Crime Stories with Nancy Grace: Cult Mom Lori Vallow Tries to Flee Courtroom, Shock Photos of Her Burned Children

Cult Mom Lori Vallow asks the judge to be allowed to leave the courtroom as photos of the decomposing bodies of her two children are shown to the jury.

The judge denied the request. Vallow then turned away from the scene, keeping her eyes shut during the display. Rexburg Police Detective Ray Hermosillo testified that 16-year-old Tylee’s body had been burned and destroyed, with the tissue remains placed in a partially melted plastic green bucket. JJ was wrapped in plastic, sealed by tape.

The search was reportedly so intense that officers got down on their “hands and knees” while digging. The smell, Hermosillo said, was so overpowering that officers had to rotate, and even then, one could only dig for just a few minutes.
