The cult mother, Lori Vallows, had a pool party at her house the day her brother killed her husband Charles, and in a matter of weeks he was trying to sell his son JJ's service dog before the boy 7 years old and her sister disappeared.
JJ and Tylie Ryan, 17, have not been seen since the young man was the last at his school in Rexburg, Idaho, on September 23.

Vallows and her husband Chad Daybell, meanwhile, have surfaced living in Hawaii, and she has refused to answer questions about the children. The authorities have named the mother a person of interest, but did not press charges against her.

Before marrying the current husband Chad Daybell in November, Lori Vallows was filmed in surveillance cameras that removed a large unidentified object from a storage facility.
She was accompanied by a man, who is believed to be her brother, in the video. It was filmed in October.
Since then, police searched the facility in Idaho and found items that belonged to JJ and Tylee.
The items included a backpack with JJ initials and sports equipment.
In November, JJ's grandmother asked the police to conduct a welfare check at her home in Idaho.
When the officers went to the house, Lori Vallows, who by then was with her current husband Chad Daybell, said JJ was with other family members.
The couple fled before the police returned to ask more questions.
In addition to the murder of Charles, there was the mysterious death of Chad Daybell's previous wife, Tammy Daybell, who died at home on October 19.

Later, the authorities decided to investigate further the death of the woman, and now they believe she is "suspicious,quot;, after her body is exhumed.
Adding even more mystery to the case was the death of Lori's brother, Alex Cox, on December 12.
