Brueski and Dreeke dissected Vallow Daybell’s behavior and statements in the courtroom, characterizing her as delusional. Dreeke noted, “She was really, and still is, massively rationalizing. Her behavior to really a huge extent and degree." He further elaborated on the depths of her delusion, pointing out her belief that her late friend Tammy Daybell is busy working in heaven and her murdered children hold powwows with Jesus and tell her she did nothing wrong. Dreeke lamented that for families seeking closure and relief from pain, it is particularly tragic that Vallow Daybell shows no remorse or recognition of her crimes.
The discussion also touched on the impending murder trial Vallow Daybell faces in Arizona, raising questions about her mental state and the practicality of another trial. While Dreeke emphasized the importance of the justice system holding people accountable regardless of their mental state, he also acknowledged the emotional toll on the families and the strain on resources, given the likely similar outcome.
Although the hosts highlighted the complexities and challenges of the situation, they underscored the need for support and therapy for the affected families. Brueski summarized, "You just gotta let go of the fact of what you're trying to feel better by having... unattainable because the person that you're trying to get it from is incapable of delivering it."
This episode of "Hidden Killers" sheds light on the profound psychological complexities surrounding the case of Lori Vallow Daybell, revealing the nuances and challenges that face the families of victims and the justice system alike.
