New testimony at the Doomsday mom trial shows hair from Lori Vallow was recovered from duct tape that was used to wrap J.J. Vallow’s body, according to authorities.
On May 1, testimony from Keeley Coleman of Bode Technology showed Lori’s hair was found on duct tape that was used to wrap her son’s body in plastic, East Idaho News reported.
Coleman said the hair was tested against Lori, Tylee Ryan, her daughter, and Lori’s friend Melanie Gibb, according to East Idaho News.
“It had been indicated that the hair had been found on duct tape that was in the presence of decomposition fluids,” she stated.
The chance of randomly selecting a person whose DNA matched the partial DNA sample from the hair is one in 71 billion, meaning the hair unequivocally belonged to Lori, Coleman added.
J.J. and Tylee were missing for nine months before their bodies were discovered on Chad Daybell’s property in June 2020, Front Page Detectives previously reported. Chad is Lori’s fifth husband who is also charged with killing her two children, but he will be tried at a later date.
