Re­mains found at prop­erty of man tied to miss­ing kids

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION & WORLD -

BOISE, Idaho — Au­thor­i­ties said they un­cov­ered hu­man re­mains at an Idaho man’s home Tues­day as they in­ves­ti­gated the dis­ap­pear­ance of his new wife’s two chil­dren — a case that’s drawn global at­ten­tion for its ties to two other mys­te­ri­ous deaths and the cou­ple’s dooms­day be­liefs.

Chad Day­bell, who mar­ried the chil­dren’s mother, Lori Val­low Day­bell, was ar­rested on sus­pi­cion of con­ceal­ing or de­stroy­ing ev­i­dence af­ter lo­cal and fed­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tors searched his prop­erty, ac­cord­ing to the Fre­mont County Sheriff’s Office. He has not yet been for­mally charged, and his at­tor­ney, Mark Means, did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.

Joshua “JJ” Val­low, who was 7 when he van­ished, and 17-yearold Tylee Ryan haven’t been seen since Septem­ber, and po­lice say Chad and Lori Day­bell lied to in­ves­ti­ga­tors about the chil­dren’s where­abouts be­fore qui­etly leav­ing Idaho. The cou­ple were found in Hawaii months later. Be­sides the miss­ing chil­dren, the cou­ple have been un­der scru­tiny fol­low­ing the deaths of both of their former spouses.
