Cult Mom Lori Vallow's Brother Adam Cox Claims Jail Hasn't Changed Sister's 'Crazy' Beliefs: 'She's Just The Same That She's Always Been'
Lori Vallow's brother is speaking out.
Adam Cox, the older brother of the infamous cult mom, recently gave an update on his sister's status since her murder charges — and she apparently hasn't been effected much by her time behind bars.
Vallow's two children J.J., 7, and Tylee, 17 both went missing in September 2019, leading to her February 2020 arrest on two counts of felony desertion of a child. That following June, JJ and Tylee's remains were found in the backyard belonging to Vallow's husband, Chad Daybell.
Vallow and Daybell were later charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of the children. Daybell was also charged with murdering his first wife Tammy Daybell, who died in 2019.
Vallow's case was eventually put on hold in June 2021 followed by the judge's ruling that she was unfit to face a trial. While the future of her trial still hangs in the balance, Vallow's brother provided insight into his sister's odd behavior and her strange ideology that is believed to have caused the killings.
"My mom has talked to her, and it seems that my mom is saying that she's just the same that she's always been," Cox explained in a preview for ABC's 20/20 special, per People. "My mom thinks that being in jail hasn't had any effect on her at all as far as coming to reality of what is actually happening."
He also claimed that they have been struggling to understand the horrific situation, stating "our family is nothing the way it used to be."
"You don't know who to trust, who's saying what, what actually happened," he continued. "And some family members may believe one thing and other family members believe another thing."
According to ABC, Cox began to notice a change in his sister's behavior months before the tragic events, including his sister's insistence that she had a "face to face" conversation with Jesus Christ and that she was "immortal."
"I looked at her, and she looked at me, and I was like, 'Lori, what you're saying is not true…This is nonsense,'" he recalled. "And she goes, 'You think I'm crazy, don't you.'"
"From that point, she tried to cut everything off with me," he said, adding that he then reached out to their mother for help.
"I was like, 'Look, Lori is saying some crazy stuff. We gotta do something,' and my mom was like, 'Well she's never said that to me. I never heard her say that.'"
As OK! previously reported, Vallow used to tell her friends she was could not die, and believed that she did not need to sleep, eat or go to the bathroom anymore, according to John Glatt's new book The Doomsday Mother: Lori Vallow, Chad Daybell, and the End of an American Family.
She also reportedly made the claim that if she was shot, the bullet would pass through her body and leave her unharmed.
