(Newser) – Lori Vallow's children haven't been seen since Sept. 23, and Idaho police say Vallow has not only "completely refused" to help them—she probably has all the answers. We "have information indicating that Lori knows either the location of the children or what has happened to them," says a Monday statement from the Rexburg Police Department, per the Arizona Republic. "It is astonishing that rather than work with law enforcement" in the search for Tylee Ryan, 17, and Joshua Vallow, 7, "Vallow has chosen instead to leave the state with her new husband." Coverage:

  • That new husband is Chad Daybell. They married in October shortly after the death of Chad's wife, Tammy. The 49-year-old was thought to have died of natural causes, but her death is now being investigated. Two of Lori's previous husbands are also dead, one of an apparent heart attack in 2018. East Idaho News reports Charles Vallow died July 11 after being shot by Lori’s brother, Alexander Cox. Cox himself died Dec. 12; that death is being probed.
