Netflix’s Sins Of Our Mother, a true crime series about a mother accused of killing her two children

The three-part series covers the sinister case of Lori Vallow, a seemingly devoted mother of three who was charged in 2021 with first-degree murder of her two youngest children.

When Vallow’s children JJ, 7, and Tylee, 17, went missing in September 2019, a media storm soon ensued.

She was eventually arrested in January 2020 when she failed to present her children to concerned authorities after insisting they were safe.

Just a few months later, the remains of both children were discovered: one buried in a pet cemetery and the other near the home of Vallow’s fifth husband, Chad Daybell.

Vallow and Daybell are currently awaiting trial for the murder of JJ and Tylee, with both scheduled to take the stand in January 2023.

A description of the Netflix series reads: “Lori Vallow was known to friends and family as a devoted mother of three, a loving wife, and a woman of God.

“But in the last three years, something has gone terribly wrong: Lori is now in jail, awaiting trial for conspiracy to commit murder and first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of her fourth husband, her fifth husband’s wife and his two youngest children.

“For the first time, Lori’s surviving son, Colby, steps forward to provide an exclusive look at her family’s backstory, as well as her present-tense narrative as Lori faces justice.

“At the heart of this three-part series is a single burning question: how did a seemingly ordinary woman become America’s most notorious mother?”

“I’ll definitely check this out when it comes out, it’s such a crazy case.” read a comment on YouTube.

Another added: “I was waiting for this! I have followed his story from the beginning. It is unimaginable what he has done.”

On Twitter, a third Netflix subscriber had written: “I knew she would be a documentary subject one day. I can’t wait for this.”

Although the excitement for sins of our mother is already through the roof, some people have expressed concern that the documentary could affect the ongoing case.

One true crime fan commented, “You [realise] that you could be hurting the case by posting this before the trials.”

Another noted: “Wow, I didn’t know they were doing a Netflix doc on this. Especially since it’s still in court.”

Tyla has reached out to Netflix for comment.

This is definitely one that we will be keeping an eye on.
