Police investigating letter in connection with death of Lori Vallow’s ex-husband

From 12news

Lori Vallow, the mother of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan who have not been seen since September, is expected to be extradited to Idaho this week.

12 News received documents of a mysterious letter sent shortly before Charles Vallow, Lori’s husband, was killed in Chandler.

“It is a key point of evidence and a key point of our investigation..” Sgt Jason McClimans, spokesperson for Chandler PD said.

The letter at first glance, seems to be from Charles Vallow, asking Chad Daybell (Lori Vallow’s future husband), to come to the Chandler home. The letter said in part, “I would definitely make it worth your time.”

The thing is, Charles’ family says emails show it was Lori not Charles writing the letter.

“We don’t know exactly where it came from.” Sgt. Jason McClimans said, “It can make it very frustrating and complex, actually.”

Just weeks later, Charles would be shot in a Chandler home by Lori’s Brother Alex Cox.

Soon Lori would take the kids to Idaho in August. In October Chad Daybell’s wife Tammy, mysteriously died. Two weeks later, Lori and Chad would be married.

Lori Vallow-Daybell faces two felony charges of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children and is accused of resisting and obstructing an officer, solicitation of a crime and contempt of court.

Vallow is currently being held on a $5 million bail. Proceedings are underway to extradite her to Idaho.

Kaua’i police said as far as they know, there are no criminal charges pending against Vallow’s new husband, Chad Daybell.

They said they could not comment further on the investigation.

Court documents released, however, revealed more disturbing details about the investigation.

Vallow got rid of Joshua’s service dog

The probable cause statement says Joshua had a service dog named Bailey for his autism.

On July 22, Vallow sent an email to the company that trained the dog, asking them to find another family for Bailey because of “a change in life circumstances.”

The company picked the dog up on Aug. 30.
