Chad Daybell’s children claim he is innocent
The children of “Doomsday” father Chad Daybell insist that their father is innocent – and were “framed” by his new wife Lori Vallow when his two stepchildren died.
“I think he was deceived in the worst, deadliest possible way,” his daughter Emma Murray told CBS’s 48 Hours.
“None of this would have ever happened if Lori Vallow hadn’t come into his life.”
Daybell, 53, is charged with murdering 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and seven-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and burying their mutilated remains with the help of their mother and wife, Vallow, in a pet cemetery in his backyard in Idaho.
The children were last seen alive in September 2019.
When they first spoke, Daybell’s five adult children – Emma Murray, Garth Daybell, Seth Daybell, Leah Murphy, and Mark Daybell – all insisted that their father was innocent.
“It’s just not possible,” Mark told 48 Hours.
“Anyone who says that my father could kill someone does not know my father.”
The siblings believe that their father, as a former gravedigger, would not have made the mistake of burying the bodies in a shallow grave so close to the house.
“He knew how to dig graves and that just doesn’t sound believable to me,” Seth said.
Instead, Daybell’s children believe he was framed by Vallow and her late brother Alex Cox – who shot and killed his sister’s ex-husband, Charles Vallow, in self-defense during a July 2019 confrontation.
Cox died of natural causes in December 2019 at the age of 51.
“It was framed. This is his property. If there are bodies buried here they would be attributed to him, ”Murray said.
“I think it’s pretty clear that it was Lori and Alex … Alex came and went for a while … we don’t know what exactly he was doing,” she added.
In another bizarre twist, Daybell was also charged with the death of his first wife and mother of five children in May.
Tammy Daybell, who died in October 2019, is believed to have previously died in her sleep.
It’s another allegation that his children insist that their father is innocent.
“No,” the siblings answered in unison when asked by “48 Hours” whether they believe that Daybell killed their mother.
Daybell and Vallow are reportedly members of the doomsday cult Preparing a People and have allegedly relied on their ardent beliefs to justify their children’s deaths, prosecutors have alleged.
The couple have been charged with murder and face the death penalty if convicted.
The trial of Chad Daybell is slated to begin in November 2021.
