Family members have raised other concerns.
Lori allegedly believes she is “a God assigned to carry out the work of the 144,000 at Christ’s second coming in July 2020, and that if [her then husband] got in her way of her mission she would murder him,” according to a divorce court filing by Charles Vallow, who was estranged from Lori at the time he was shot, with Cox claiming it was self-defense during an altercation in Lori's home. Cox was not charged.
Lori's son J.J. was last seen Sept. 23 at his school in Rexburg, to which Lori and the two kids moved in August from Arizona after the death of Charles Vallow. Lori subsequently withdrew J.J. from the school, telling the principal she wanted to homeschool him.
The last image of Lori’s daughter, Tylee, dates to a Sept. 8 day trip Tylee made to Yellowstone National Park with her mom, brother and uncle Alex Cox, according to the court filing in Madison County that led to Lori’s arrest in the children’s disappearance.
Police in Rexburg allege they have documented several misleading statements from Lori and Chad about the kids’ whereabouts. Prosecutors allege Lori “abandoned her two minor children, delayed law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children, and encouraged another individual to delay law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children.”
Each felony count of desertion and nonsupport of a child carries a sentence of up to 14 years in prison if she is convicted.
Lori is expected in court Friday to request a reduction in her bond amount.
