‘Cult mom’ Lori Vallow cannot find bondsman to secure $1M bail but will likely walk free while her kids remain missing – The Sun

LORI Vallow remains behind bars three days after her bail was reduced to just $1 million because she cannot find a bondsman willing to secure her release.

The Sun has learned that Lori has put together the $100,000 she will need to put down herself, but is having trouble proving that she has $1 million in assets.

Lori's predicament is not much of a surprise in light of her recent behavior.

In November, she fled from Idaho to Hawaii one day after she was questioned by police and asked to stay in the area for the sake of the investigation into her missing children.

Lori was then giving a deadline of January 30 to turn over her children, which she very publicly disregarded while galavanting around Hawaii with her fifth husband, Chad Daybell.

She is now facing multiple charges related to the disappearance of her children, including two counts of desertion and nonsupport as authorities search for her daughter Tylee and son JJ. .

Lori is likely to walk free however despite all this by the end of the day as multiple people are working to pull together assets for her two sources told The Sun.

Once she is released, Lori will be outfitted with an ankle monitor and be restricted from travelling outside the state.

She will not be able to travel far within the state either, with her movements limited to just Madison, Fremont, Jefferson and Bonneville Counties.

There has been an ankle monitor ready to go for Lori since Friday night, and it will take less than an hour to process her release, but nothing can be done until she secures a bondsman.

Most of the local companies are very much aware of Lori's history however, and her devout belief system.


Divorce papers obtained by The Sun reveal that Lori believed that she had been put on this Earth by God to help create a new holy city.

She claimed to be the grandmother of Mormon founder Joseph Smith Jr. in a past life, married to a prophet and a "translated being who cannot taste death."

"Mother (Lori Vallow) has recently become infatuated, at times obsessive, about near-death experiences and spiritual visions," wrote Charles in his court filing.

"Mother has told Father (Charles Vallow) that she is sealed (eternally married) to the ancient Book of Mormon prophet Moroni and that she has lived numerous lives on numerous planets prior to this current life."

Lori later told Charles that she was a prophet, claiming that she was a "translated being who cannot taste death sent by God to lead the 144,000 into the Millennium."

This ties in to the fervor Lori had for the end days, which is how she came to meet Chad.

The two came together after attending an event with Preparing A People, a Doomsday organization that some view as a cult.

In response to that, the founders of Preparing A People told The Sun that "it is not a 'group' and is not a 'Cult' or something people join, but has educational lecture events that can be attended or watched on video."

Lori and Chad seem to have splintered off from the group around the same time that they were ex-communicated by the Church of Latter Day Saints.

In both cases, Church leaders took issue with the two claiming to be prophets.

It is not clear how far Chad took this belief, but Charles said that Lori saw herself as a Christ-like figure.

"Mother believes that she is receiving spiritual revelations and visions to help her gather and prepare those chosen to live in the New Jerusalem after the Great War as prophesied in the book of Revelations," said Charles.

In a phone call after she made this claim, Lori told Charles "that she was a God assigned to carry out the work of the 144,000 at Christ’s second coming in July 2020 and that if Father got in her way of her mission, she would murder him."

Charles submitted a Motion For Order to Appear in February of last year, shortly after filing for divorce from Lori and receiving an order of protection against his then-estranged wife.

He said in the filing that Lori "kept referring to Father as ‘Nick Schneider’ instead of Father’s name" during one business trip.

When Charles asked who that was, Lori "told him that Nick was Father’s real name because Nick had killed Father and taken his identity."

Lori then threatened Charles' life, he claimed in his 2018 motion.

"Mother proceeded to warn Father that she would kill him upon his return home and had an angel there to help her dispose of the body," read the filing.

"She also mentioned that she could not trust Father and that she would not only kill him but would destroy him financially. Since that conversation Mother’s communications with Father have been rare and intermittent."

Lori then followed through with that, according to Charles.

He came home to find his truck had been taken from the airport parking lot, which resulted in him having to get a ride to his home.

Once at the home he found his "desktop computer … clothes and underwear, JJ's clothes, the service dog's collar, JJ's medication" and the boy's iPad were all gone from the home.


JJ and his half-sister have not been heard from or seen since September, and Lori never reported the children as missing to authorities

It was not until Idaho police were contacted by JJ's biological grandmother Kay that authorities were alerted to their disappearance.

Police say Lori told one individual that Tylee had died a year before her father, while Chad said she had no minor children.

Lorifailed to comply with a January court order to produce her kids in five days and has had little to say about where they are.

After being questioned by Idaho cops back in November, she bolted to Hawaii with Chad.

Lori and Chadwere married just a few weeks after the children were last seen, and following the deaths of their spouses in mysterious circumstances.

Charles was shot dead by Lori's brother Alex Cox, who then died in December.

Chad's wife – and the mother of his five kids – Tammy died days after claiming a man was aiming at gun at her from outside her home.

Tammy's body has since been exhumed after her death was determined to be from natural causes when Chad opted to not request an autopsy.
