Lori Vallow’s son Colby Ryan admitted anger issues weeks before the rape arrest as evidence of trouble surfaced

THE only surviving child of ‘cult mom’ Lori Vallow admitted to struggling with anger issues and dark thoughts just weeks before he was arrested for allegedly raping his estranged wife.

Colby Ryan, 26, was taken into custody in Mesa, Arizona on Saturday and charged with two counts of sexual assault on domestic violence charges.

The alleged attack happened just days earlier, when his accuser – whose name is being withheld – claimed Ryan imposed himself on her while he was at her house watching TV.

Ryan’s wife told investigators they began kissing consensually, but when she told him she wanted to stop it, Ryan persisted and began sexually touching her against her will.

He then sexually assaulted her while she tried to push him away, asking him to “stop” because she “didn’t want to do it,” court documents say.

Ryan has yet to file charges, but police claim he confessed to “raping” the victim during a conversation secretly recorded by his ex-wife. He also issued a tearful apology.

During an exclusive interview with The US Sun in late May, Ryan opened up about struggling with anger issues and violent ideas following the murders of his two younger siblings, Tylee Ryan, 16, and JJ Vallow, 7.

The two children are believed to have been murdered by their mother, Lori Vallow, and husband, Chad Daybell, as part of a depraved doomsday plot.

Discussing how he turned to religion to deal with the horrific deaths of his siblings, Ryan said, “In those moments when you look back, I was very angry.

“I was hurt, I was unwell and I was nauseous all the time – it was just this huge weight that was on me.

“And I felt that way until a few months ago when I really started to delve into what was happening.

“I knew it was time to face it,” he continued. “It’s such a difficult thing [to do] …but I can’t spend the rest of my life just lingering like this, so I dunked.

“And as I dived in, I understood why I was so angry; I realized that I was hurt more than anything, that I was sad, that I missed my family.

“I can’t believe these things happened, but there’s also a surrender I can’t control.”

Though Ryan insisted he found it within himself to forgive his mother for alleged murderous acts, he also said he once fantasized about killing Lori and Chad.

After learning of the horrifying circumstances surrounding the killing and disposal of Tylee and JJ, Ryan admitted to being consumed by “dark thoughts”.

“I had the darkest thoughts about hurting her,” he revealed.

“[I was thinking] “You want to hurt and kill my family? Then I’ll kill you.’

“It was so, so dark. But that’s how you feel when you want revenge.”

“go through a lot”

Ryan said he was ultimately able to steer himself off that dark path and into the light, finding solace in his faith, family and burgeoning YouTube page.

Until recently, Ryan has been uploading vlogs almost weekly to keep his audience of 7000 followers updated on the latest happenings in his private life.

These shows were abruptly discontinued on July 18.

Full disclosure, it’s incredibly difficult to confront trauma head-on…but anger was probably the hardest to overcome.

During his last broadcast, Ryan told his audience that he and his wife “have been through a lot of things spiritually” but are “in a better place where we’re doing much better.”

In her interview with police, Ryan’s estranged wife told investigators they are separated and have been living apart for about a month.

She claimed she was sexually assaulted by Ryan after he came to her home to watch TV on Wednesday, August 31.

Afterward, Ryan apologized and began crying, according to court records. His wife locked herself in her bedroom and Ryan slept on the couch.

The following day, she recorded a conversation between her and Ryan, in which he admitted the inappropriate touching and “agreed that he ‘raped’ the victim,” the document continues.

Ryan made similar admissions to police after his arrest, the document said.

He has yet to enter a plea bargain and remains incarcerated in the Maricopa County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail.

DOOMSDAY MURDER PLOT

Ryan’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell, and her new husband, Chad Daybell, are still awaiting trial for the murders of JJ and Tylee, as well as Chad Daybell’s first wife, Tammy Daybell.

A Netflix documentary about the bizarre and twisted case is also set to premiere in the coming days, with Ryan starring in the series’ trailer.

The twisted saga began in November 2019 after Tylee and JJ were first reported missing.

Neither child had been seen or heard from for several weeks; Tylee was last seen on September 8th on a family trip to Yellowstone National Park, and JJ disappeared on September 22nd in Rexburg, Idaho.

Lori had maintained for several months that her children were safe and living with family members in Arizona, but refused to reveal where or with whom and ignored a court order to produce the children for authorities.

The lie was finally undone on June 9, 2020, when investigators made a horrific discovery after serving a search warrant at Daybell’s Salem, Idaho, home.

In the backyard of the property, police found two human remains buried in shallow graves, which were soon confirmed to belong to Tylee and JJ.

Tylee’s remains had been dismembered and cremated, while JJ was found buried in his red pajamas and wrapped in plastic bags with his mouth, arms and wrists covered with duct tape.

Chad Daybell was taken into custody the same day and both he and Lori were later indicted by a grand jury on a number of charges related to the children’s deaths, including first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Lori’s devoted brother, Alex Cox, was also believed to be involved in her murders. However, he evaded charges after he died suddenly in December 2019 of allegedly “natural causes” triggered by high blood pressure and blood clots in his lungs.

Investigators believe Cox’s two children were killed on orders from Vallow and Daybell, who were allegedly convinced that two children were possessed by “dark spirits” and therefore needed to be purified.

Tammy Daybell was also killed in a similar manner, investigators claim.

Her death, initially ruled as the result of a “heart event,” occurred in October 2019, just two weeks before Vallow and Chad Daybell tied the knot in Hawaii.

Authorities now consider her death suspicious as court documents state that Cox attempted to shoot Tammy about ten days before her death.

Her body was exhumed, but the results of her second autopsy were not released to the public. Cox died a day before the exhumation.

He also shot and killed Lori Vallow’s fourth husband, Charles Vallow, after an alleged fight in Chandler in July 2019, claiming he was in self-defense.

Lori Vallow was charged with conspiracy to murder Charles’ death.

After a long, drawn-out court case in which Vallow claimed she was unfit to stand trial, both she and her doomsday-loving husband will face trial on a range of charges next January.

The two have both pleaded not guilty and could face the death penalty if convicted.

burgeoning anger

Ryan told the US Sun in May that he had no doubt his mother was guilty of the murders of Tylee and JJ.

After years of battling inner demons, he said he finally made the once-unimaginable decision to forgive her in exchange for freeing himself from the weight of anger and resentment he felt toward her.

“I couldn’t just live in the past, no matter how hard it was to let go,” Colby said.

“I’ve always felt like I live in this graveyard and I’m not going anywhere. I feel like a lot of people can get stuck at this stage and it’s just miserable.

“You can’t live a full life because you’re always thinking about the past.

“So I love her and miss her all the time. But I also have to accept that they are not here.

Colby added: “Full disclosure, it’s incredibly difficult to face trauma head-on, but it’s worth it when you come out on the other side – you’re healed and you have an opportunity to tell your story, and that can to others.” Help people.

“But the anger was probably the most difficult thing to overcome.”
