JJ Vallow’s family send emotional message to ‘cult mom’ Lori after she’s convicted of murder

The mum was convicted on all counts

Lori Vallow, a once devoted mum who became one of the most notorious women in America, has been found guilty of all charges.

Among the charges were grand theft, conspiracy to murder, and first-degree murder, following the deaths of her children Tylee Ryan, 16, and Joshua 'JJ' Vallow, 7, and the planned murder of Tammy Daybell, her new husband Chad Daybell's first wife.

Lori, who's crimes were connected to a shocking doomsday plot, could now face life in prison.

She is due to be sentenced in approximately 90 days time.

Surrounded by her legal team this week, Lori stood completely still, her face unchanging, as the jury's verdict was read out.

Reacting to this week's verdict, the grandparents of Joshua 'JJ' Vallow, Larry and Lay Woodcock, issued a statement.

"My final message for Lori," began Mr Woodcock, before breaking into the song 'The Party’s Over.'

This was apparently a song that he and JJ used to sing together.

It went: "Turn out the lights, the party’s over. They say that all good things must end."

He then addressed Vallow directly, telling her: "Lori, it ended."

Meanwhile, JJ's uncle Gerry Vallow added: "They got the b***h."

Woodcock went on to add that the family would return to court in around 90 days for Vallow's sentencing.

The family have also vowed to continue to fight for justice with Chad Daybell also set to stand trial next year for the murder charges, and Lori Vallow to stand trial for the murder of JJ's father and her fourth husband Charles Vallow.

He said: "Guys we got two more trials, two more."

"The next trial is Chad. I look forward to being back in this courthouse again."

Chad Daybell is believed to have met Lori through their shared interest in a movement that promoted planning for doomsday.

The two met in 2018 and began recording a podcast together to promote their beliefs, which claimed that people either had 'light' or 'dark' spirits inside them, and the only way to free someone from the 'dark' spirit was to kill them.

It was grandparents Larry and Lay who first contacted police back in 2019 when they were concerned about the wellbeing of their grandson JJ and his sister Tylee.

Nine months into their investigation, authorities discovered the remains of Tylee and JJ in shallow graves on Chad Daybell's property.

JJ and Tylee's remains were discovered on Chad Daybell's property in 2020.

Addressing his late grandson, Mr Woodcock said through tears: "JJ, I love you. Papa wishes you were here in other circumstances. Tylee, papa loves you.

"Tammy, I never met you. Tammy you are part of our lives. I am sorry for what happened to you, my heart hurts for these three. This is what this has been all about from the very get go.

"It started with two children missing. I stood up and I said ‘where are the children, where are the children, where are the children? Give us back our children."
