  • Ryan’s arrest comes days before Netflix’s release of a true-crime documentary series about the family.

Colby Ryan, the adult son of Lori Vallow Daybell, was arrested on sexual assault and domestic violence charges over the weekend.

The arrest comes days before Netflix’s release of a true-crime docuseries on Vallow Daybell, a doomsday high school accused of the murders of her two young children and her ex-husband, on Thursday. Ryan will feature prominently in the series.

Ryan, Vallow’s only living son, was arrested in Maricopa County, Arizona, on Saturday, according to Fox 10 Phoenix. He was charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of domestic violence.

In Idaho, a person can be charged under the domestic violence statute if the persons involved were married or formerly married or live or lived in the same household.

Colby Ryan’s mother is accused of killing her brothers

The strange case of Lori Vallow and her marriage to apocalyptic novelist Chad Daybell captivated America in 2020, after the “doomsday couple” was found vacationing in Hawaii while entangled in a web of suspicious death investigations. and missing persons.

The couple left their home in Rexburg, Idaho, after a relative reported that their children had been missing for months.

When police found the couple in Hawaii, the children, 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old JJ Vallow, were not there.

The couple did not share the children’s whereabouts with police, and as law enforcement officers searched for them, they discovered a list of other suspicious deaths linked to the couple.

On July 11, 2019, for example, police in Chandler, Arizona, responded to the shooting of Vallow’s husband, Charles, at his home, according to a police report provided to Insider by Sgt. Jason McClimans. Vallow’s brother, Alex Cox, told police that he shot Charles Vallow in self-defense.

Lori Vallow, a self-proclaimed prophet, has since been accused of planning the murder with Cox after convincing him that Charles Vallow was possessed by a demon.

After Charles’ death, Vallow and Cox moved to Rexburg, Idaho, where Vallow married doomsday novelist Chad Daybell, whom she met at a “Grooming People” event.

The wedding took place a month after Daybell’s wife, Tammy, was found dead. He has since been charged with her murder.

JJ and Tylee’s bodies were found at Daybell’s Idaho property in June 2020, and the couple have also been charged in their murders.

Those who know Vallow told officials he believed both of his sons were “possessed and turned into zombies,” according to court documents from an unrelated case involving Vallow’s niece.

Colby Ryan has spoken repeatedly about his mother since the arrest, saying that she has been lying to him for a long time, including telling him that his stepfather, Charles Vallow, had died of a heart attack when he learned he had been shot. He also said that he believed that she would have died for her two minor children and that he was shocked by her apparent involvement in her disappearance.

Vallow was initially found “not competent to proceed” with a trial in that case, but has since been released from a mental health facility.

She and Daybell are now scheduled to stand trial for the children’s murder in January.
