This is one of the greatest things about Facebook! Thanks for sharing this! 🩷

Oh good! I’m 47 and still haven’t forgotten about the kitty I lost when I was little.

My granddaughter has that same “bun bun”! Can’t sleep without it!

The owner was found!

Nicole Smith looks so much like her.

It was a false alarm! The bunny has not been claimed.

Thank you

Great news, Lory loves warm weather 😬


Great to hear! I'm an AZ resident and have been following this connection since the beginning. Justice for Charles, Brandon and their families is next!

Anyone else seeing a resemblance here?

Not looking so good these days! Let Justice be done!

Will there be a trial or is she going to plea?

No more a beauty queen, that's for sure.

She looks like she’s been rode hard and put up wet!

Hopefully Chad was able to get in one last conjugal visit before she left... since there's no order against communicating 🙄🙄🙄 🤣🤣🤣

I think she looks like a normal female her age.

Please don't plea out, please don't plead out! Please lead to other arrests Arizona! Both of the Mels for a start! There are so many out there who participated, and if you grill them, one MAY admit Joe's murder too.

She’s lookin rough

Evil twit

Maricopa County Arizona, Lori is there for charges related to Charles Vallow's senseless murder in cold blood. 🥶 what an evil masquerade she 🎭 performed 🎭. I will never understand such evil people.

Crazy Lori. Had to ruin your cushy life, didn’t you. Had to kill your husband, your 2 children, your brother, and your boyfriend’s wife. Nutcase. You made some bad choices, girl. You don’t even deserve oxygen.

Amazing, insightful commentary delivered conversationally by a journalist and forensic psychologist couple from their family home. Wonderfully engaging & intimate. Always linking the discussion of the crime at hand to larger truths about the human condition. One of my absolute favorite crime series.

Your podcast effectively weaves a tapestry of facts, knowledge, instinct and research that not only applies to the cases being discussed, but provides an opportunity for the listeners to employ the strategies discussed and enrich their own relationships.

Podcast I didn’t know I needed: I’ve been an avid true crime podcast listener, always seeming as though I walked away missing something. This podcast fills that void. The deep psychological dive this couple takes is both needed in this world of true crime and much appreciated.

I am stunned by your competency- content and presentation- as a team.

You guys need more followers. I watched all the Daybell-Vallow episodes in one day. I have some of the same traits and mental health issues that Lori has. I don’t want to kill anybody, but you explained the problem. Thank you. I wish you were my mental health professional.

This is the best assessment, hands down, I have heard in years with regard to analysis of the criminal mind…thank you for having such integrity and for not talking down to your audience.

I looked forward to listening to your first podcast and thoroughly enjoyed it. Novel, unique, intelligent, insightful and even inspiring. Who would have thought I could listen to an episode about this case and walk away feeling inclined to be more grateful, grounded, mindful, and accepting of my humanity and mortality? Love both of you and can’t wait for the next one.

I listened to all the podcasts. Very valuable, interesting and intriguing information! I love the way John speaks and teaches. I love his references and stories. I LOVE how he explains Chad’s behaviors through psychology, referencing well respected clinical philosophies. John explains what I sensed about him…I plan to listen to these podcasts again because they are just plain educational! And very interesting. Looking forward to dinner next week!

I love hearing a point of view from someone who understands the mind of a criminal. Please put out more podcasts and consider doing one live. I have so many questions!

This is utterly brilliant. The best podcast I have ever heard. Ever.

The most important podcast I’ve ever heard. This has to be some of the most profound content in media today. A must listen for anyone trying to understand dysfunctional people around them.
