The autopsy report for Tylee Ryan, one of the victims in the tragic case of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell, has revealed gruesome details about the state of the remains. According to Dr. Garrett Warren, the autopsy on Tylee’s remains took longer than usual as her body was not intact and was received in three separate sealed bags. The forensic team had to look for bullets and knife fragments, but nothing was found. Instead, the cause of death was determined to be “homicide by unspecified means.”
Tylee’s grim fate was not the only dark chapter in this case. The trial has revealed that Lori and Chad conspired to commit multiple murders. Chad also faces charges in connection with the death of his first wife, Tammy Daybell, whose cause of death was found to be asphyxiation. As for the two children, J.J. and Tylee, their remains were discovered on Chad’s property after investigators tracked the cell phone records of Lori’s deceased brother.
Detective Ray Hermosillo described the horrifying scene of J.J.’s remains, which were wrapped in duct tape and placed in a white plastic bag with a blanket covering him. Tylee’s remains, on the other hand, were dismembered and charred, which made identifying them a difficult task. The forensic team had to dig through the moist section of dirt to uncover the bits and pieces of Tylee.
The prosecutors have argued that the couple’s “religious beliefs” were what justified their killings. The trial has sent shockwaves across the country, highlighting the dangers of extremist ideologies and the devastating consequences they can have. The case of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell is a reminder that no belief or ideology can justify murder and that justice must be served for the innocent lives lost.
