Online detectives discover bizarre differences in ‘cult mother’ Lori Vallow’s evolving mug shots as a new booking pic is released
The latest mugshot of MORDER suspect and ‘cult mum’ Lori Vallow has caused a frenzy among online investigators, who have spotted a number of changes to her appearance since her arrest.
The 49-year-old, who is charged with the murder of her two children, is scheduled to stand trial in Idaho next month.
On Wednesday night, Vallow was transferred to the Ada County Jail, where she is being held temporarily.
She has been in the Madison County Jail since March 2020 after she and her husband, Chad Daybell, were charged with triple murder.
The couple are accused of killing Vallow’s two children – 16-year-old Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow, seven – along with Daybell’s ex-wife Tammy Daybell in 2019.
In her chilling new mugshot, Vallow wears an orange jumpsuit with slicked-back blonde locks.
But the amount of makeup on her face and her drastically changed appearance since she was behind bars have sparked a lot of speculation online.
Vallow’s earlier mugshot appeared to show her grinning beneath wavy blonde hair.
In the latest picture, her hair is tied up and stringy, her eyebrows are roughly redrawn, her wrinkles are more pronounced, and the smile is gone.
She also appears to be wearing lipstick and mascara.
“This prison makeup is something else,” wrote one Twitter user.
Another added: “Wow. She’s aged quite a bit, huh? And that big smile is finally gone!”
Others speculated that she had makeup and hair products smuggled into the prison.
“She has aged 20 years since her arrest!” a third wrote.
Daybell and Vallow married just two weeks after Tammy’s unexpected death.
Although the death was initially reported as natural causes, suspicions grew after the shotgun wedding and had her body exhumed.
The hairstylist was then arrested in February 2020 after failing to provide proof of life for her missing children to the Madison County Attorney’s Office in January.
Daybell and Vallow never reported the children missing and flew to Hawaii shortly after investigators questioned them about the children.
Vallow’s family members have accused her of being part of a “doomsday cult” with her husband.
On Tuesday, a judge ruled that Vallow would not be sentenced to death if she is found guilty at the end of the trial, which begins next month.
