The Fremont County (Idaho) Sheriff’s Office is handling the investigation into Tammy Daybell’s death after the 49-year-old woman reportedly passed away in her sleep at the family’s Salem, Idaho, home on Oct. 19.
Authorities have said they deemed Daybell’s death as possibly “suspicious” and exhumed her remains with the assistance of local law enforcement on Dec. 11.

Her death became a matter of suspicion when, 17 days later, Chad married Lori Vallow. The police then opened an investigation into Tammy’s death and ordered her body to be exhumed so an autopsy could be performed. Her body was exhumed on December 11, but the results of her autopsy have not yet been released. On April 16, 2020, the Idaho State Journal reported that the Idaho Attorney General’s Office is investigating Chad Daybell and Lori Vallow for the murder, attempted murder, and conspiracy regarding Tammy’s death.
According to East Idaho News, Tammy reported to the police that a masked man shot at her with a paintball gun several times, just 10 days before her death. She also posted about the incident in a neighborhood Facebook group: “Something really weird just happened, and I want you to know so you can watch out. I had gotten home and parked in our front driveway.
As I was getting stuff out of the back seat, a guy wearing a ski mask was suddenly standing by the back of my car with a paintball gun. He shot at me several times, although I don’t think it was loaded. I yelled for Chad and he ran off around the back of my house.”
