ST. ANTHONY, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK)-It may be some time before investigators learn exactly how J.J. Vallow and Tylee Ryan died.  

The children’s bodies were exhumed from  shallow graves in a field behind Chad Daybell’s Salem area home on June 9.

The bodies of Lori Vallow-Daybell’s children were initially identified by the Fremont County Medical Examiner.  

County Coroner Brenda Dye then contracted with the Ada County Coroner’s Office for pathological examinations. 

Ada County Coroner Dotti Owens says outside and ancillary testing has been ordered and will take several weeks to return. 

According to Ada County, the Fremont County Coroner maintains full responsibility of the investigation and has full decision making authority on the cases.

Once those results are received, the Forensic Pathologist’s reports will be provided to the Fremont County Coroner.

  1. Dear News Team/ghouls. Why–other than the standard sensationalism–does the ‘news media’ continuously pander to a–SUPPOSEDLY–group of crime perverts by making ‘news’ announcements which basically say “No news right now. Maybe not for some time yet. But we just felt the need (financial) to keep the public’s attention focused on the HORROR of a couple who murders children.”
    Doesn’t really matter, as I have had LESS than no respect for ‘journalists’ since the very early 1980’s, but there are relatives/survivors of these children who may prefer NOT to hear every gory detail–repeatedly–just so news-people can pretend to be. Either news or–IMO, of course–PEOPLE!

    BTW; no, I did NOT ‘read’ the article, just the ‘lead-in’. I also don’t buy those check-out lane tabloids!
