National News

(WEHT)- The FBI and local law enforcement in Idaho are now analyzing evidence from the home of a man they believe is involved with the disappearance of two children in September.

Authorities served a search warrant at the home of Chad Daybell, where his wife was found dead in October. Though initially ruled as natural causes, the police now say the death is “suspicious.” Her body was exhumed and the results of a new autopsy is still pending.

Weeks after his wife’s death, Daybell married Lori Vallow. Vallow’s children, Josh Vallow and Tylee Ryan have been missing since September. Now police believe the two cases may be connected.

Now Daybell and Vallow have disappeared and refuse to cooperate in the case. Sheriff Len Humphries of Fremont County, Idaho believes they’ve left the state. The Daybell family said they do not have a comment at this time.
