The only surviving son of Doomsday mom Lori Vallow took the stand on Tuesday and Idaho prosecutors played a recorded phone call of him confronting his mother after his siblings’ bodies were reportedly found on her husband’s property in 2020, according to authorities.

In the phone call from August 2020, Colby Ryan talked to his jailed mother about his siblings, J.J. Vallow and Tylee Ryan, KTVB reported. He reportedly told Vallow that her two children were murdered, buried and she “walked away.”

Vallow allegedly told Ryan, “I’m not hiding, why would you think I’m hiding?”

He responded, “Probably ‘cause you murdered my siblings.”

She said, “I didn’t. I’m sorry you feel that way.”

KTVB reported there were gasps in the courtroom, as Vallow could be heard laughing during the intense phone call regarding the murder of her children.

Ryan told his mother he would be in Idaho and she needed to “look me in my eye,” according to KTVB.

As the phone call was ending, Ryan said, “I pray every day, no matter how mad I am at you, no matter how bad I want to hit [Chad Daybell, her husband] in the face with a shovel, I pray for you, I pray for him.”

Vallow is accused of murdering her two children, who were reported missing in November 2019 and never seen alive again, and conspiring to kill her fifth husband’s first wife.

The bodies of J.J. and Tylee were found on a property belonging to Lori’s husband, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.

Vallow is believed to have been involved in a so-called doomsday cult and allegedly told a friend, who testified during the trial, that her children had become zombies and they had to be killed to exorcize their bodies of evil spirits. As Front Page Detectives previously reported, zombies would be a key issue in this trial.

Cult Mom Vallow did undergo psychiatric treatment twice before she was deemed fit to stand trial.

The trial against Lori Vallow is ongoing.
