Lori Vallow’s brother recalls talking to sister: ‘I knew right then and there that the kids were dead’

The older brother of Lori Vallow, the so-called “doomsday cult” mother accused of killing her two children and her ex-husband, became concerned when she and their second brother adopted apocalyptic convictions.

Adam Cox discussed his sister in a bonus episode of the podcast: “The Followers: Madness of Two“” which describes the tangled case over several sections. He described her as a big sibling who played sports together while growing up in a Mormon family in Southern California.

Years later, Vallow and her brother, Alex Cox, embraced doomsday prophecy, even before she met her fifth husband, Chad Daybell, a writer who wrote about such beliefs.

“I want to say this with Chad Daybell, even though I do not know much about him,” Adam Cox said. “When he met Lori and Alex, they were already, when I say the perfect storm, they were ready to be taken.”

“I think maybe Lori might have been mentally ill all her life,” he added.

Vallow and Daybell face conspiracy and murder in connection with several deaths, including her two children, Joshua “JJ” Vallow, 7, his 17-year-old sister Tylee Ryan and 49-year-old Tammy Daybell.

“Know what Lori and Alex went through with these people who talked about the end of the world and knew what Lori was like – and Lori talked a lot about death actually, talked about the next life, how amazing the next life is and how it will be perfect , and how her children will not suffer in the next life, ”Adam Cox said in a bonus podcast episode released Wednesday.

“I thought, ‘If they’re good, Lori, tell me where these kids are,'” he added. “If she says, ‘Well, I do not want to tell you where the kids are,’ that means the kids are not alive. I knew right then and there that the kids were dead.”

Vallow was arrested in January 2020 in Hawaii after she failed to produce the children – who were reported missing months before – at the request of Idaho child welfare workers. Their remains were discovered on Daybell’s estate months later.

Daybell is also charged in connection with the death of his ex-wife, Tammy Daybell, who died a few weeks before he married Vallow. In addition, Vallow is also charged in connection with the death of her foreign spouse, Charles Vallow in July 2019.

He was shot and killed by Alex Cox, who was never charged and died of natural causes.

Vallow and Daybell have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. The complex case took a turn after Vallow was declared mentally unfit by a judge to stand trial.

Lori Vallow will appear in court in Lihue, Hawaii on February 26, 2020. Her older brother, Adam Cox, appeared on a podcast in which he remembered growing up with his sister and how her behavior changed when she adopted religious and doomsday views.

“My mother and father have written Lori in prison, and the letters they have received back from Lori are that Lori has not changed her condition or her personality at all,” Adam Cox said. “Apparently she’s not talking to anyone. So at this point, she can’t defend herself because she doesn’t answer any of the questions they ask her.”

Prosecutors in Idaho said they intend to seek the death penalty for Daybell.
