Friends of the so-called “hit mom” have told Glatt that when she says “jump,” her siblings will ask “how tall?”

Others told Glatt that Alex Cox had a “strange preoccupation” with Lori and would do “anything for her” – including the alleged murder of her fourth husband, Charles Vallow, and her two children, JJ and Tylee, at her direction.

Alex, who died suddenly in December 2019 just two months after JJ and Tylee were last seen alive, is said to have developed an obsession for Lori at an early age, possibly coming level of incest.

A close childhood friend of Lori, identified under the pen name Rose Vaughn in Glatt’s book, told the author about how Alex gave her the “crazes” growing up and how he seemed to “attached” to his sister.

“When Lori and I were in the pool, he was always watching us and I didn’t like it,” Rose remembers Alex, who is five years older than Lori.


One night when they were in seventh grade, Rose recalled how she was sitting in Vallow’s bedroom when suddenly burst into tears and blurted out that Alex had sexually assaulted her.

“We grew up together so we talked about everything,” said Rose. “Suddenly Lori was crying and emotional, and she just said, ‘Alex is trying to have sex with me. What can I do?'”

Rose said she comforted Lori, who never talked about the obvious progress with her again.

While it’s unclear if Alex continued to sexually pursue Lori as a child, his obsession with her would continue for several more decades, with other family friends expressing concerns about her. relationship and the pair’s strange behavior years later.

Mary Tracy, an old friend of Alex Cox’s, said she witnessed something “odd” in the summer of 2008 when she accompanied Cox to Lori’s house for a family gathering.

The meeting was held right after Cox got out of prison, spent 90 days in prison for assaulting Lori’s third husband, Joseph Ryan, with a stun gun and threatening to kill him.

Cox is said to have been haunted by the thought that Ryan was sexually abusing Tylee – a lie that was told to him multiple times by Lori.

Mary said that before the gathering, she had wanted to meet Lori because Alex often talked about her and she was “confused by their unusual relationship.”


Recalling it was a hot Sunday afternoon, Mary said she entered the house to find Lori paraded around the house in a skimpy bikini in front of the enchanting Alex, as Tylee and JJ followed closely behind her.

“I just thought it was weird,” Mary said. “She looks great, but I’ve never really met someone walking around the house in a bikini.

“I remember feeling that Lori was high-maintenance.”

Years later, in early 2015, Alex flew to visit his sister in Kauai, and Lori brought him into her church to meet the congregation.

Earlier, Lori had told her friend April Raymond about how Alex tried to kill her ex-husband on her behalf and ended up in jail for his efforts.

“Alex admits to trying to kill someone [Joseph Ryan]”April told Glatt.” That’s when I started to feel, as if, this was something very wrong. He is very loyal to Lori and will do anything she asks. ”

April said she spent the rest of Alex’s visit trying to avoid him, remembering Cox as being socially awkward and “a bit out of place”.

She said that he seems to be fascinated by the fact that she, like Lori, has blonde hair, and often asks intimate questions to see how she compares to his sister. .

“Alex seems to have a very strange preoccupation with Lori,” April said.

“He wanted to know things like, how much I weigh, what my bust is, or my shoe size, and compare it to Lori.

“And that just makes me feel very uncomfortable.”


Another person voiced displeasure Alex and Lori .’s Strange Relationship is Cox’s ex-wife, who, in an interview with police in September 2020, stated that the two brothers would have sex with each other.

The woman, identified only as Debbie in police reports, told a detective with the Chandler Police Department in Arizona, that Alex and Lori would simulate sexual behavior in front of her and the rest. in the family.

“For example,” Debbie said, according to the transcript of the call, “he would pick her up and she would wrap her legs around his waist and he would bounce up and down in front of me and they would whine. and simulate sexual acts.

“He also talked about [how she was] hot, and he sexually aroused her quite a bit. He touched her breasts and everything. “

Debbie also told the officer that Cox and Lori’s parents would “constantly” talk about their sex lives in front of the family, saying it seemed “like a game to them.”

She says the family has “no shame” and acts this way whenever they are together.

She says the strange dynamic led Debbie to leave Alex just months after they were married.

“Alex and I only lived together for about four or five months and then I just knew that family was so weird, that I made a big mistake and so I left,” Debbie said.

She later described Alex as a “really, really protective older brother” who regularly had sex with her.

Debbie testified that she once confronted Alex about his apparent feelings for Lori, asking if they had sex.

In response, Alex accused her of being “weird for thinking it was weird.”


While the true extent of the sibling relationship may never be known, whatever obsession Cox caused Lori when he shot her fourth husband, Charles Vallow, dead in July 2019.

At the time, Cox claimed he acted in self-defense after Charles lunged at him with a baseball bat.

Police initially ruled that Cox acted in self-defence but the case was reopened when JJ and Tylee were reported missing in Idaho in November 2019.

Now, prosecutors say Cox killed Charles Vallow in Lori’s direction.

For months, Lori’s fifth husband, Doomsday author Chad Daybell, watched him, telling him he was a “special protector” for important figures in his past life.

Chad also tells Cox that he was brought to this earth to protect Lori from “zombies”, which he assumes are people who seem to have lost their souls and been overtaken by evil spirits.

After Charles Vallow’s death, Glatt announced that Cox had been enlisted to serve as Lori and Chad’s personal assassin, to help rid the world of so-called “evil spirits”, including children of Lori, JJ 7 years old and 17 years old- old Tylee

“Alex was just too willing to kill for Lori and Chad’s sacred duty and started going to a local gun range to improve his shooting,” Glatt writes in her new book.

Just two months later, Tylee and JJ were seen alive for the last time.


The last known sighting of Tylee was during a trip to Yellowstone National Park on September 8, 2019, while JJ was last seen on September 23, being carried by Alex Cox as he slept on it. hand.

Their bodies were found nine months later and buried in a pet cemetery on the grounds of Chad Daybell in Salem, Idaho.

Investigators allege that the two children were killed by Alex Cox at the direction of Lori and Chad. The FBI discovered Cox was at the Daybell property on both September 9 and 23.

JJ’s body was discovered first. The autistic boy was found wrapped from head to toe in duct tape and stuffed in a trash bag.

Tylee, meanwhile, was fragmented and burned in Daybell’s furnace, before her burned bones were disposed of in a shallow grave.

Prosecutors allege that Daybell, who for many years worked as a grave picker, used her skills to help Cox dispose of the children’s bodies.

Daybell’s Wife Tammy also passed away suddenly in October 2019 in her sleep, two weeks before Vallow and Daybell got married in Hawaii. Her death was initially thought to be the result of natural causes but is now considered suspicious.

No cause of death has been made public, but Glatt noted that first responders observed a “pink foam” erupting from her mouth.

Alex Cox later died on December 12, 2019, a day after Tammy Daybell’s body was exhumed for further investigation.

He was found unconscious at his home and, like Tammy, had pink foam coming out of his mouth.


Both Daybell and Vallow were charged with attempted murder in the deaths of Lori’s children in September 2019.

The pair face similar charges in the death of Daybell’s previous wife, Tammy Daybell, 49.

Lori is also charged in Arizona with conspiring to kill her estranged ex-husband, 62-year-old Charles Vallow, with the help of her deceased brother, Alex Cox.

Daybell’s trial for alleged roles in the murders of Tylee, JJ and Tammy is now scheduled to take place in January 2023. Prosecutors are looking. death sentence against him.

Vallow has been determined not mentally fit to stand trial for murder and is being treated in a secure mental health facility until she is found competent to do so. .

According to Glatt, Vallow continued to write to Daybell and read his scriptures every day.

Incredibly, sources tell the author that at night, she is often seen on surveillance cameras “dancing in her cell at night to music deep in her head”.
