JJ’s mother and stepfather killed him and his 17-year-old half-sister, Tylee Ryan. They tried to cover up the children’s deaths by claiming they were home-schooling or that the children were staying with relatives; but their grandparents became worried and asked for a welfare check and the children were declared missing. A storage locker was found, full of the siblings’ possessions. Finally their bodies were found on their stepfather’s property.
Perpetrator: Chad Guy Daybell (Stepfather), charged with two counts of destruction, alteration and concealment of evidence; Lori Vallow Daybell (Mother), charged with desertion and nonsupport of dependent children, resisting or obstructing officers, criminal solicitation to commit a crime, contempt of court and willful disobedience of court process or order.
