Chad Daybell trial live: Jurors hear jail phone call with Lori Vallow revealing he was texting her dead brother

Chad Daybell gets emotional as 911 call is played at his murder trial

A jail phone call played in court on Wednesday revealed that “doomsday” author Chad Daybell told his wife Lori Vallow that he texted her dead brother.

Daybell, 55, is on trial for the 2019 murders of his former wife Tammy, and Vallow’s children, Tylee Ryan, 16, and JJ, seven.

In the never before heard jail phone call, Vallow asks Daybell for reassurance the day before her children were found buried in Daybell’s Idaho backyard.

Prosecutors said that the couple conspired with Vallow’s brother Alex Cox to carry out the murders as part of their doomsday cult beliefs – but also so they could collect life insurance money and the kids’ social security and survivor benefits.

The call played in court on 8 June 2020 – months after Cox was dead.

Prosecutors say Daybell’s “desire for sex, power, and money” led to the murders. But his defence attorney claims he was manipulated by Vallow.

Last year, Vallow was convicted in the three murders and sentenced to life in prison. Jurors heard how she, Daybell and her late brother Alex Cox were fuelled, in part, by their bizarre cult beliefs.

If convicted, Daybell faces the death penalty or life in prison.


Jail call reveals Daybell told Lori Vallow he texted her dead brother

A jail phone call played in court on Wednesday revealed that Daybell told his wife Lori Vallow that he texted her dead brother, Alex Cox.

“I texted Ray,” he is heard on the recording. Det Hermosillo says Cox often went by Ray LeMar. He had a gmail account [email protected].

“He was very optimistic,” Daybell tells her and the two giggle multiple times.

“He’s said it will work out. He didn’t want me to say he misses you but he’s not far from contact. We can text him whenever we want.”

Daybell says he asked Ray about the “video project.” Vallow’s sister Summer Shiflet posted a video online about Alex Cox after he died.

Daybell and Vallow talk about completing the project on time and if they get a bonus.

Daybell tells her: “he’s still very interested and hasn’t forgotten about us. He’s involved in this latest batch.”

RECAP: Tylee Ryan’s best friend testifies she was ‘almost maternal’ with brother JJ

Tylee Ryan’s best friend Ashlyn Rynd testified on Monday in court that Tylee’s relationship with her younger brother JJ Vallow, seven, was “almost maternal.”

“She was there for him. … he was going for anybody who was going to provide for him, and Tylee would always be the one to show up,” Ashlyn said.

Ashlyn temporarily moved to Texas in 2017, but the two friends remained close, and she moved back to Arizona.

However, when Tylee moved to Idaho in 2019, they “tried for two weeks” but fell out of contact.

Jury hears gruesome testimony about tools used to chop up Tylee Ryan’s remains

On Monday, jurors listened to Douglas Halepaska, FBI Toolmark Analyst, describe tools used to chop and shattered Tylee Ryan’s remains.

The 16-year-old’s remains were found buried and burned on Chad Daybell’s property. Her hip bone and spine were shattered.

“The force you can kind of see at the top left, you can see that the bone has actually shattered in separate places and fractured,” the analyst said.

“Based on my training experience, it appears that the tool that was used actually cut through the bone and into that soft tissue and may have actually carried into it.”

Mr Halepaska testified that many of Tylee’s injuries came from tools like a machete, a hatchet, a cleaver and a pick.

A pickaxe and shovel were among the numerous tools found on Daybell’s property that tested positive for human remains.

The defence argued that the tools analyst could not specifically identify the tools that were used on Tylee.
