Chad Daybell Sentenced to Death in Triple Murder Case After Victims’ Only Surviving Sibling’s Powerful Statement

Chad Daybell, who was convicted Thursday of three murders, was sentenced to death on Saturday.

Daybell is the husband of Lori Vallow and was accused of killing two of her children as well as his first wife in 2019, according to Fox News.

Last year, Vallow was found guilty on several charges including two first-degree murder charges in the deaths of two of her children — J.J. Vallow, 7, and Tylee Ryan, 16.

Colby Ryan, 28, the oldest of Vallow’s children and the only one left alive, offered a heartbroken statement, according to KTVB-TV.

“I stand here today motherless, fatherless, sisterless and brotherless,” Ryan said.

“I lost everything I’ve ever known. I lost the ability to share my children with them [JJ and Tylee] …or have my children know them and be loved by them,” he said.

“But more importantly, Tylee and JJ lost their lives. Tylee will never be able to travel like she always wanted to or have a family of her own. JJ will never be able to share his light and love,” he said.

Do you agree with the death penalty?

Ryan had testified against Daybell during his trial. His mother is serving a sentence of life in prison.

“The only course forward is to trust in Christ knowing that he has them in his arms and wait for the day that we all meet again,” Ryan said.

Relatives of Tamara Daybell, Chad Daybell’s first wife, also made statements, according to ABC.

“My sister should not be dead right now,” Samantha Gwilliam said.

“She should be here alive, smiling, with her family and friends. She should be doting on her grandchildren and taking care of her animals,” she added.

“It is a cruel world that has taken her from us. We need to feel some peace for the first time in five years,” Gwilliam continued.

“I miss my sister every day. I will grieve for her for the rest of my life. I speak up for her now because she needs a voice,” she said.

Kay Woodcock, J.J. Vallow’s grandmother, said his murder was a “betrayal that can’t be explained.”

“There’s a hole in my heart, in the hearts of every member of my family, that can never be filled and will remain for the rest of my life,” Woodcock said.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
