1580704661510.png

Police seem to be no closer to finding 7-year-old Joshua “JJ” Vallow and 17-year-old Tylee Ryan than they were when this story began months ago.

Since that time, the story has gained international attention as it’s taken twists and turns involving a purported cult, dead spouses, delusions of divinity and preparing for the end of the world. Despite all the angles, and the ever-growing number of people related to the case, the facts remain essentially the same as when it was first announced.

The two children remain missing and the parents, Lori (Vallow) Daybell, and her new husband, Chad Daybell, refuse to disclose their whereabouts to police. Both have been named persons of interest in the disappearance of the children. Law enforcement is also investigating the deaths of the Daybells’ previous respective spouses, Charles Vallow and Tammy Daybell, though neither Chad nor Lori have been named suspects in those cases.

Because he interviewed people surrounding the case? I’m trying to remember if I’ve ever heard of a news reporter being called in to testify. I’m sure there has been but I can’t think of anyone off hand.
The subpoena was from Prior, a defense attorney. It could be to get the case moved to a different jurisdiction due to publicity. MOO

Yes I realize it’s from the defense attorney. But now that you brought up the name, I should’ve realize that it’s probably just that one defense attorney because I think that he’s not that great, but time will tell. I didn’t think Jose Baez was either and look what happened with his client.

I can't think of too many off hand but I do believe it has happened, they just are not coming to mind. In both Daybell and Morphew, reporters seem to indicate they have more that they have held until it is safe and/or turned over to authorities due to the investigation. Lauren Scharf made a recent remark like that and with Nate in Daybell, well he certainly did some big interviews, brought a lot of publicity too, he went to Hawaii, they covered Lori's return to the states...

It seems at this point in the process it would likely relate to publicity or fair trial/venue, etc. but it could also be anything. He talked to other players, and interviewed them, probably on and off record, he had sources...

Clients, he also got Aaron Hernandez off his charge down south.

Interesting. You usually file indigency to be appointed a public defender. I guess Means could request he be paid as a contracted "public defender" but generally they would appoint someone more versed with the criminal cases... He may say he is representing her but why did she file for indigency then?

Unless somehow that allows for State paying for defense experts or some other things? I only know it allows for an appointed attorney at state expense.

Just waiting on Chad to follow suit. Unless Prior took the house as full payment.

Yes, I wouldn't think he would be far behind. There may be some assets from Tammy like a pension or some such and the home. As to the life insurance, they have to have run through all or at least a lot of it. I figured Lori would be indigent long before now and before Chad. I guess Means could go pro bono but I still don't see why she would file indigency if she did not plan on asking for one appointed.

Means has staunchly defended his client which leads one to wonder why. At least is does for me.

You're not the only one. It's strange, he has no experience so they say in much criminally and she can't exactly be giving him ahem a roll in the hay as she is in jail. She has no money.... So why? Even if negative, he does have a case that puts him in the limelight and if he did win, well, I guess it would bring him some business... He was on Court TV a bit back as a commenter or legal consultant and people were laughing at it but the man was probably formerly never heard of.

The only other thing I can think of is she has something on him or he was a part of this "group"...
