For this episode, we discuss the heinously insane case of Lori Vallow, the Idaho mother with two missing children. The case isn’t that simple, though. Two of her previous 5 husbands have ended up dead. The most recent? Her brother, Alex Cox, killed him. But it gets deeper. Not only are Lori’s kids missing…she has zero interest in finding them. Why? Because she just married the leader of a doomsday cult, whose wife also mysteriously passed away, likely due to foul play. They have now fled to Hawaii and are happily living in a million-dollar condo on the beach. The timeline is insane. Join us as we lay out the basics of the case.
