Jun 05, 05:00 PM

In the podcast episode of 'Hidden Killers With Tony Brueski,' psychotherapist and author Shavaun Scott discusses the recent guilty verdict of Chad Daybell on multiple counts, including the murders of Tammy Daybell, JJ, and Tylee, as well as insurance fraud. The conversation highlights the relief and satisfaction felt by both Brueski and Scott over the verdict, emphasizing the traumatic journey from the search for the children to the bizarre trials of Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell. They discuss the implications of the verdict and anticipate Lori Vallow's upcoming trial for the murder of Charles Vallow and the attempted shooting of Brandon Boudreaux. Scott points out the shortcomings of John Pryor, Daybell's attorney, and suggests that the jury's quick verdict reflects the strength of the evidence against Daybell. The conversation touches on the moral complexities jurors face in deciding on the death penalty, predicting a swift decision due to the clear-cut nature of most people's views on capital punishment. They express concerns for Daybell's children and reflect on the broader issue of cult-like offshoots from mainstream religious groups, particularly within the context of the Mormon faith. The discussion concludes with anticipation for Lori Vallow's trial and a recognition of the potential for uncovering more cases of similar nature.
