Vigil set for Lori Vallow’s children after remains found on Chad Daybell’s property
Friends and relatives who have waited for months on answers about the whereabouts of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan will gather Friday to mourn their deaths.
The missing Idaho children were confirmed dead Wednesday, a day after two sets of remains were found on the property of their mother’s, Lori Vallow, husband.
“I just got this kick in the butt today that was like, ‘You’ve got to do something.’ Everybody on my Facebook page is talking and wants to do something but doesn’t know what. So I just thought, ‘Let’s do this,’” organizer Timanee Olsen told East Idaho News.
Olsen has asked everyone to wear purple and blue to honor the siblings.
Plans include prayers, a moment of silence and a musical performance of Sarah McLachlan’s “In the Arms of an Angel.”
“If it’s small, that’s great and it will be intimate. If it’s bigger, we’ll have the space for it,” Olsen told East Idaho News. “Anyone who is feeling the effects of this incredible loss is free to come and pay their respects.”
A months-long search for JJ and Tylee ended this week as Daybell was arrested and charged with two counts of destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence.
Their mother, Vallow, has been behind bars since February, charged with desertion and nonsupport of dependent children.
