Police used information from the cellphone of the children’s late uncle, Alex Cox, to find their remains buried on Daybell’s property, a probable cause affidavit unsealed Friday says.
Cox fatally shot Charles Vallow, Lori Vallow’s ex-husband, in July 2019. Both Lori Vallow and Daybell are in custody in Idaho awaiting court hearings on separate felony charges.

“It is with heavy hearts that we now confirm that those remains have now been officially identified as those of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan,” Rexburg police said in a statement Saturday.
JJ and Tylee were last seen in September and were reported missing by extended family members to police in November.
Their mother, Lori Vallow, and her husband, Chad Daybell, have been charged in the case.
Vallow, 46, was arrested in February and is facing two felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children and one misdemeanor count each of resisting and obstructing an officer, solicitation of a crime and
