SEE IT: Yellowstone National Park security footage, mystery witness, body cam among newly revealed evidence against ‘Cult Mom’ Lori Vallow

Idaho prosecutors have submitted court documents outlining some of the evidence they will present in the case against Lori Vallow, who is facing federal charges of child abandonment.

Vallow’s two children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow, have not been seen since September. Vallow and her husband Chad Daybell never reported the children missing, and fled Idaho in November shortly after police performed a wellness check at Vallow’s home in Rexburg after police performed a wellness check and discovered the children weren’t there.

In February, Vallow was arrested in Hawaii on two counts of felony child abandonment, misdemeanor resisting and obstructing an officer, contempt of court, and solicitation of a crime. She is now behind bars in Madison County, Idaho, on $1 million bail.

The Madison County Prosecutor’s office submitted initial discovery documents outlining the evidence they expect to present at Vallow’s trial. Among the items are recorded interviews with what appears to be Chad Daybell’s parents, extended relatives of Lori Vallow’s, and a woman whose name has not previously come up in reports about the bizarre case. Her connection to Vallow is not yet known.

Also listed is surveillance camera footage from Yellowstone National Park, where Tylee Ryan was last seen with her mother, brother, and uncle in early September.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Vallow’s relatives have said they believe she and Daybell are both involved in a so-called ‘end days’ cult, which may be connected to the children’s disappearance and the sudden deaths of both Vallow and Daybell’s previous spouses and Vallow’s brother, who admitted to shooting Vallow’s husband Charles Vallow, claiming self defense, in July. In December, Cox died of still-unknown causes.
