Dark Details Emerge When 2 Kids Go Missing And 4 Family Members Die After Mom Joins Cult

Lori Vallow is a 46-year-old mom and religious podcaster living in Rexburg, Idaho with her family.

She has 3 children: 23-year-old Colby Ryan, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan, and 7-year-old Joshua Vallow.

Strangely enough, Lori’s first two husbands died quite young and she is now on husband number three.

This mom of two joined a cult, two of her kids are missing, and the police are saying she is refusing to cooperate with them.
