Lori Vallow, mother of missing Rexburg children, arrested in Hawaii

KAUAI, Hawaii — Lori Vallow, the mother of two missing Rexburg children, was arrested in Kauai Thursday afternoon.

According to the Kauai Police Department, 47-year-old Vallow has been charged with two felony counts of desertion and nonsupport of dependent children.

She has also been charged with resisting or obstructing officers, criminal solicitation to commit a crime, and contempt of court.

She is currently being held in Kauai on a $5 million bond.

“First of all, we wish to thank the public for the massive outpouring of concern regarding this case,” said Kauai Chief of Police Todd G. Raybuck. “We also want to thank everyone for their patience while investigators worked diligently to comprehensively gather everything they needed in order to obtain this arrest warrant.”

The arrest warrant was issued by the Madison County Prosecutor's Office.

In a news release Thursday evening, the prosecutor's office explained why Vallow was charged.

"The complaint... alleges that Vallow abandoned her two minor children, delayed law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children, and encouraged another individual to delay law enforcement’s attempts to locate her children," the statement reads.

An official close to the investigation tells KTVB that Vallow's extradition hearing could be held on Friday or Monday on Kauai and that extraditions typically can take up to two weeks or more.

We also reached out to former Idaho Attorney General David Leroy, who says once Vallow has the extradition hearing and a judge OKs the extradition order, she can be sent back to Idaho immediately.

As of Thursday night, Idaho Gov. Brad Little's office says it has not yet received a request from Madison County to start the extradition process.

Vallow's husband, Chad Daybell, was not arrested.

Leroy said even though Vallow and Daybell are married, he has no legal authority to support her children and therefore, cannot be charged with felony desertion of a minor.

“If he has no legal relationship with these children, he has no obligation to provide support or assistance to the children," Leroy said. "Technically, it would be impossible for him to be charged with failing to support his lawful children where they are not his lawful children.”

Vallow failed to comply with a court order to produce her kids before authorities, who haven't been seen since September, by January 30.

17-year-old Tylee Ryan and 7-year-old J.J. Vallow haven't been seen since September.

Police in Rexburg have said previously that they “strongly believe that Joshua and Tylee's lives are in danger.”

No other information on the missing children was released.

If found guilty, Vallow could face up to 14 years in prison for each felony desertion of a child charge.

Largest facilitator of child pornography sites' extradited from Ireland

A man once described by the FBI as the world's largest facilitator of child pornography websites is facing up to 30 years in jail following his extradition from Ireland.

Eric Eoin Marques has admitted operating a web hosting service that allowed users to anonymously access hundreds of thousands of images and videos depicting the rape and torture of infants and older children.

The 34-year-old, who is set to be sentenced on 11 May, has spent years fighting his extradition to the US since being arrested in Dublin in 2013.

FBI Special Agent Brooke Donahue described Marques as "the largest facilitator of child pornography websites on the planet", according to court records.

She also testified that Marques had been searching online for information about obtaining a Russian visa and citizenship.

"He was trying to look for a place to reside to make it most difficult to be extradited to the US," the FBI agent said.

The dual Irish and US citizen operated a web hosting service on the dark net that allowed thousands of users to view and share child pornography without revealing their IP addresses.

An IP address is a label used to identify one or more devices on the internet and is comparable to a postal address.

In 2013, FBI agents in Maryland connected to the network and accessed a child pornography bulletin board with more than 7,700 members and 22,000 posts.

Agents downloaded more than one million files from another website on the network, nearly all of which depicted sexually explicit images of children.

Authorities seized nearly $155,000 (£120,000) from Marques, who said during an August 2013 extradition hearing that his business had been "very successful" and profitable.

He was living in Ireland at the time of the alleged offences.

Marques was indicted in April 2019 in Maryland on conspiring to advertise child pornography, conspiring to distribute child pornography, advertising child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

Authorities Bust Child Sex Ring In Maury County


MAURY COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Seven people are behind bars in Maury County and charged in connection with a disturbing sexploitation ring involving children.

Investigators are still looking into the group that allegedly traded graphic images that possibly involve juveniles from Middle Tennessee.

The Maury County Sheriff’s Office, working with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, recently arrested seven people as part of the alleged sexploitation ring.

Investigators identified the group after disturbing images of child sex acts showed up on social media sites and cell phone video.

According to arrest affidavits, members of the gang were reportedly exchanging lewd pictures of children engaged in sex.

Verna Wyatt, Co-Founder of Tennessee Voices for Victims, says this is sadly more common than people know.

“Child sex crimes murder the soul. It’s sickening, but part of a mindset, and once you get into that kind of deviant behavior, it is almost normal to them.”

According to arrest documents, Clinton Shawn Gransden and Michelle Klen were the alleged ring leaders. Investigators identified the 40-year-old Gransden after he reportedly had sex with a child, imagery captured on the cell phones of Jesse Smith, Connie Copley, and Angel Morales Depasquale.

“You know, statistically 1/4 girls and 1/7 boys will be a victim of sex abuse by the time they are age 18 so there’s an epidemic in our country.”

According to affidavits, on Christopher Sayre’s phone, agents reportedly found a video of children engaged in sex who were identified by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Wyatt says news of the arrest is deeply troubling.

“I was infuriated and disgusted, but unfortunately, I know that this happens all across the country, not just in Tennessee.”

And then there’s Julie May Johnson. According to agents, the 39-year-old exchanged pornographic images of children with the group; images that included a video showing Michelle Klen having sex with a child.

And according to investigators, Julie May Johnson requested pictures of children having sex with animals from other members of the group.

Wyatt says the children have a long road to recovery.

“They will never heal from that, they can recover, but that is something they will never fully heal from.
