January 1, ‘Cult Mom’ Glams Up For Mugshot Despite Serious Charges



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

Vallow was found guilty in May of murdering two of her children and her husband’s first wife in Idaho in 2019. She 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.

In a Thursday morning statement, MCSO said, “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.”

On November 29, deputies returned to Maricopa County just after midnight, and Vallow was booked into the county jail.

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

An Arizona grand jury indicted Vallow after an Idaho jury on May 12 convicted her 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 ensued 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.

Why It Matters (op-ed)

The extradition of “cult mom” Lori Vallow to face murder charges in Arizona highlights the importance of relentless pursuit of justice for heinous crimes. As Sheriff Paul Penzone stated, pursuing criminals and bringing them to justice is a top priority.

The case also brings attention to the dangers of cult-like behavior and its potential for violence. Let this serve as a reminder for us to remain vigilant against such threats, and to hold accountable those who commit such atrocities, no matter where they hide.

    Confused by the “cult like behavior “. A cult usually refers to a group of people who follow someone wholeheartedly. A couple of evil family members does not make a cult. I feel like you are trying to erroneously add a religious component to this article when it’s just evil people involved.

      They claim to “hold accountable those who commit such atrocities”, and “importance of relentless pursuit of justice for heinous crimes”, yet they have done neither. This woman needs to be executed, not pampered in a prison for 20 or more years. Until we start eliminating these evil scum of society justice is not served.

    Some people are gullible and exposure like this is brainwashing. She’s a killer through and through. she’s no better than Susan Smith who drowned her kids to hold onto her boyfriend who didn’t like her kids.
