Lori Vallow Daybell’s trial is continuing to make shocking revelations as the search history on her electronic devices are revealed in court.
The Idaho mother, who is currently on trial for the murder of her daughter Tylee, her adopted son J.J., and her husband Chad Daybell’s ex-wife Tammy, had made an alarming number of searches prior to her children’s disappearances, and even on the day of Tammy’s funeral.
On Monday, Rexburg Police Det. David Stubbs testified that Vallow Daybell had been searching for wedding dresses in Hawaii, on the same day Tammy was being laid to rest.
Two weeks after Tammy died, Chad married Vallow Daybell in Hawaii. Chad faces trial later this year for the murders of Vallow Daybell’s children and Tammy.
Stubbs also testified that Vallow Daybell had been searching for wedding rings, even before Tammy’s death when she and Chad were still married.
“We were thinking it was odd for her to be looking at wedding rings at that time,” Stubbs said. Vallow Daybell had also made disturbing searches prior to her children’s disappearance, including searches for “gerber life policy” and “Live insurance for children – the Grow-Up Plan.” The Grow-Up Plan is a life insurance policy “for a child that builds cash value.”
Vallow Daybell’s son Colby Ryan, who is the only surviving child, took the stand last week to testify against his mother, revealing that Vallow Daybell had insurance policies on her ex-husbands.
On a jailhouse phone call between Vallow Daybell and her son, Colby expressed his feelings of betrayal to his mother. “You murdered my siblings!” Colby said. “I thought I could trust you, I thought that you were a completely different person.”
The shocking revelations from Vallow Daybell’s search history and her jailhouse phone call with her son continue to unfold as her trial progresses. It remains to be seen what other startling information will be revealed in court.
