The call, according to information from Arizona police, was made prior to 8 p.m. on July 11, 2019, approximately 12 hours after Charles Vallow was killed.

“We just had a death in the family and we really don’t want anything but a cremation and then to send the cremains to a family in Louisiana,” Daybell can be heard to say in the phone call, included below. He requested a “ballpark” price for cremation.

Daybell currently faces murder charges in Idaho for the killings of JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan, who vanished after Lori Vallow relocated to Idaho She later married Chad Daybell. Both face charges related to the destruction and concealment of the children’s bodies.
