Last photos of kids killed by ‘cult mum’ who believed she was ‘exalted goddess’
Investigators have released images of two children that were taken the last time they were seen alive before being killed by their "cult mom".
The never-before-seen snaps include Lori Vallow's children Tylee, 16, and Joshua J, 7, and photos of rifle ammunition taken right around the time the children went missing mysteriously disappeared.
A photo of little JJ wearing read "sleepy hero" pyjamas was allegedly taken on Sept 22, 2019 – on the last day the boy was seen alive.
His body was wrapped in duct tape and plastic and buried the same day, investigators said.
Tylee vanished on September 8, 2019, just days before her 17th birthday. Her body was burned and dismembered before being buried sometime the following day.
Investigations prompted Chandler police to monitor an online chat room called "Another Voice of Warning", a religious consisting of believers in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, KUTV reported.
The new evidence in the doomsday cult case shows Lori and her new husband would regularly post in that online chatroom where they had confessed to the murders of her children and ex-husband.
Authorities also said it soon became clear to officers that the mum believed she was an 'exalted goddess' and needed to marry Chad to fulfill a religious prophecy before the end of the world.

Chatroom history showed that other members were unsure of what to make of Lori's second husband.
Reports say one poster wrote in the AVOW chat: "This is just plain not good! I do hope Chad didn't do anything this horrible, but I don't feel good about it either.
"I will pray that the children are found unharmed, but something is not adding up here."

Another argued: "We know Chad is a visionary and can communicate beyond the veil There are SO MANY RIGHTEOUS possibilities here. There is no reason to jump to negative ones.
"Think about Chad's character. Which scenario is more like him? That he is an adulterer, kidnapper, and murderer!? Or that he is on an errand from God and trying to protect his new wife and kids?!"
The latest document dump from police shows an email from Vallow’s sister-in-law from Aug. 8, 2019, in which she claims the couple killed the mom’s ex-husband Charles Vallow.

Charles was shot to death by Cox about a month before in what was originally described as self-defence during a confrontation.
However, Vallow is now facing an additional conspiracy to commit murder charge in Arizona in connection with the death.
Lori was charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Charles' death on June 29 after prosecutors said she and Cox plotted to kill him so that she could marry Chad to 'fulfill a religious prophecy.'

The mum is also facing two counts of murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder in the deaths of her children.
However, she was committed to a mental health facility in Idaho for evaluation earlier this month after she was ruled unfit to stand trial.
Chad pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and murder charges against the children.
