BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Authorities say the bodies found this week at a rural property in Idaho are those of two children missing since September. The Rexburg Police Department said Saturday that the remains found on Tuesday have been positively identified by the medical examiner’s office as belonging to 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and his 17-year-old sister Tylee Ryan. Police had issued a warrant at the home of Chad Daybell, who recently married the children’s mother, Lori Vallow Daybell. The complex case spanned three states and transfixed the public with its ties to the mysterious deaths of the Daybells’ former spouses and the couple’s doomsday beliefs.
