Doomsday Dad Chad Daybell Believed He Was a Seer Who Could See ‘Beyond the Veil’

In December 2019, police in Rexburg, Idaho alerted the media: Two children had gone missing, along with their mother, Lori Vallow, and her new husband, Chad Daybell. No one had any idea where they were. Quickly, speculation swirled—that maybe their disappearances, and their whereabouts, could be linked to the “cult-like” religious beliefs held by Vallow and Daybell. Both were avowed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Daybell had found a small amount of celebrity within Mormon circles for authoring LDS fiction and running his own book publishing company. But both Vallow and Daybell also entertained ideas at the fringes of the Mormon faith—ideas that weren’t acceptable to talk about in church on Sundays. They held study groups and scrutinized the works of “near-death experience” authors who claimed to have died and come back to life with knowledge from “beyond the veil.”

BYU: The One That Got Away From the Pac-12

For years the BYU Cougars made overtures to the Pac-12 trying to earn an invite into the conference. Unfortunately for them at the time, all the Pac-12 wanted to do was date them, they were never willing to settle down and marry. Now they had a lot of dates, in football especially, BYU played five Pac-12 teams in 2021, three in 2019 and four in 2018., but to the Pac-12 they were just a schedule filler, a one-night stand, and not a long term partner.
