SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) — More than a year after her remains were exhumed, the Utah medical examiner handed over results from the autopsy of Chad Daybell's wife Tammy to Idaho authorities.
The Fremont County, Idaho sheriff's office will not be releasing the results because they are evidence in an ongoing investigation, officials stated in a press release on Thursday.
Tammy Daybell died in October of 2019. Police exhumed her body from the Springville, Utah cemetery in December of 2019 as part of the investigation into Chad Daybell and his new wife, Lori Vallow Daybell.
Both are in the midst of criminal trials related to the deaths of Vallow's two children, JJ Vallow and Tylee Ryan. Their bodies were found on Daybell's property in Fremont County last summer. Investigation documents obtained by 2News indicate Tammy Daybell was likely still alive when the children's bodies were buried near the Daybell home.

Chad and Lori Daybell both face charges in connection with the children's deaths.
The deaths of two of Vallow's previous husbands, Joseph Ryan, Tylee's father, and Charles Vallow were investigated by authorities in Arizona. In January, police concluded Ryan died of natural causes. In August, police in Chandler, Arizona said they plan to submit evidence to prosecutors in the death of Charles Vallow "but still have a ways to go in their investigation," East Idaho News reported.
