Netflix releases trailer for documentary series on Lori Vallow saga

Aug 23, 2022, 3:00 PM

PHOENIX – The sordid saga of a former Valley woman who left a trail of bodies behind her, including those of two of her children, is getting the Netflix documentary treatment.

“Sins of Our Mother,” a three-part deep dive into the case of Lori Vallow Daybell, premieres on the streaming service Sept. 14.

The official trailer came out on Monday.

“When Lori Vallow’s kids vanished, the search for them unearthed a trail of suspicious deaths, a new husband who shared her doomsday views — and murder,” reads the description on the Netflix page for the show.

“Sins of Our Mother” was directed by Skye Borgman, whose previous work includes Netflix true crime documentaries “Abducted in Plain Sight” and “Girl in the Picture.”

Vallow and her husband, Chad Daybell, have pleaded not guilty to murder, conspiracy and grand theft charges in connection with the deaths of 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan. They could face the death penalty if convicted.

Idaho law enforcement officers started investigating the Daybells in November 2019 after extended family members reported that the children were missing. During that period, police said the couple lied about the children’s whereabouts. Their bodies were found buried later on Chad Daybell’s property in rural Idaho.

The Daybells married just two weeks after Chad’s previous wife, Tammy Daybell, died unexpectedly. Tammy Daybell’s death was initially reported as due to natural causes, but investigators had her body exhumed after growing suspicious when Chad Daybell quickly remarried.

Lori Vallow Daybell is also charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Arizona in connection with the death of her previous husband. Charles Vallow was estranged from Lori when he was shot and killed in Chandler by her brother, Alex Cox, who claimed it was self-defense. Cox later died in Gilbert of what police said was natural causes.

Charles had expressed concerns about Lori’s mental state when he filed for divorce.

The Arizona legal proceedings are on hold while the Idaho case is underway and Vallow Daybell has not been scheduled to make a plea in the Arizona case.
