Disturbing Jailhouse Calls and Dark Text Messages Highlight Chad Daybell's Manipulative Behavior
In the ongoing trial of Chad Daybell, newly released jailhouse phone calls and text messages reveal the disturbing and bizarre dynamics between him and Lori Vallow Daybell.
In a recent episode of the "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski" podcast, retired FBI Special Agent and Hidden Killers Daily Contributor Jennifer Coffindaffer provided a deep dive into the unsettling relationship between Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow Daybell. The prosecution presented jailhouse phone calls where Lori expressed frustration over their failed plans and Chad's manipulative behavior.

Lori's frustration was evident as she questioned why their plans, supposedly guided by the ghost of her deceased brother, Alex Cox, were not working out. "I want to know why that is 100 percent instead of 3 percent chance of having a problem," Lori said during one of the calls. Chad attempted to reassure her, speaking in bizarre code language about their "construction plan" and the "blueprints" still being intact.

Coffindaffer commented on the power dynamics, noting, "You can tell just by how they communicate with one another. She's the one upset. She's the one directing conversation. She's the one pressing everything." She argued that Lori's behavior suggested she knew their religious claims were a facade used to manipulate others.

The podcast also featured retired FBI agent Doug Hart reading text messages between Chad and Lori. On July 29, 2019, Chad offered to cause pain to two individuals Lori was traveling with, referring to them as "threes," a term indicating their perceived spiritual darkness. Coffindaffer emphasized the dark and manipulative nature of these interactions, stating, "There's no doubt who's in charge, who's manipulating who, and who's calling the shots."

The episode highlighted the emotional toll on the victims' families and the disturbing nature of Chad and Lori's conversations. Coffindaffer expressed disbelief at their casual discussion of their crimes, noting, "It's surreal that people could talk about the murder of their kids and anyone in this way, joking around."

As the trial progresses, Coffindaffer believes Chad Daybell is likely to receive the death penalty due to the gruesome details revealed. "I think he will get the death penalty," she said, acknowledging the slow legal process but confident in the outcome.

This episode of "Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski" underscores the dark and manipulative behavior of Chad Daybell, shedding light on the disturbing dynamics between him and Lori Vallow Daybell, and the likely consequences they will face for their heinous actions.
