The documentary is set to follow Kay and Larry Woodcock's quest to learn the truth about their missing grandchildren.
The grieving grandparents prayed desperately for their grandchildren to be found, only to be faced with unspeakable tragedy.
In June this year, authorities found the remains of 17-year-old Tylee Ryan and her seven-year-old brother Josh “JJ” Vallow at an Idaho property belonging to their mothers husband.
The case garnered the attention of the national press after the couple’s doomsday beliefs and the mysterious circumstances surrounding their former partners were revealed.
Camera’s followed the grandparents as they travelled the country in the hopes of gathering information on the timeline that led Lori Vallow to commit the heinous crimes against her children.
The TV special is set to unearth Lori’s religious beliefs and the strange events that led to the deaths of her children.
Larry spoke to Fox News about his late grandchildren: "JJ was a pistol. His energy ran a hundred miles an hour and he was just so bright.
“And Tylee was an intelligent young lady who had a bright future ahead of her. It was hard not to love them."Larry and Kay Woodcock listen on during the hearing of Loris Vallow and Chad DaybellCredit: AP:Associated Press Lori Vallow was arrested in Hawaii on February 20th and was extradited back to Idaho shortly afterCredit: AP:Associated Press
Mother Lori used to be described as a doting mother whose marriage to former husband Charles Vallow was a happy one.
Kay recalled: "I thought it was a great relationship, Charles and Lori were the all-American couple.
“They were active in their church communities and so attentive to their children. Charles was a hard worker and he wanted his family to have a good living.
"Sure as a couple, you saw them snip a few times at each other over the years, maybe three times at most out of 12 years together. They just seemed so compatible."
However, their marriage was crumbling behind closed doors, with Charles filing for divorce in February 2019, and court documents revealing that he thought Lori would kill and that she’d developed strange, doomsday-cult-like beliefs.
Allegedly, Lori began calling herself: "a god assigned to carry out the work of the 144,000 at Christ’s second coming in July 2020."
In July 2019, Charles was shot and killed at the family’s home in Phoenix by Lori’s brother, Alex Cox.
Cox told the police he shot in self defence, after Charles had come at him with a baseball bat.Chad Daybell was the author of several doomsday scenario booksCredit: AP:Associated Press Larry Woodcok broke down when visited the spot the two children were foundCredit: Twitter The two children lost contact with their grandparents when they moved away from Phoenix Credit: CBS
Cox passed away in December 2019 from a pulmonary blood clot.
After her ex-husband's death, Lori moved herself and her two children from Phoenix to Idaho where she began spending time with Chad Daybell, an old acquaintance and author of several books focused on doomsday scenarios.
The Woodcock’s attempted numerous times to contact the children, but the phone calls became scarce until they stopped completely.
In October 2019, Daybells wife Tammy Daybell passed away of natural causes with daybell and Lori marrying not even two weeks after on a Hawaii beach.
The grandparents' worry caused them to call the police to conduct a wellness check but when the police arrived Vallow told him that JJ was in Arizona with a friend.
However, that friend told police JJ hadn’t been to her house for months.
In January 2020, the children's belongings were found in an abandoned Rexburg storage unit. Police searched Lori’s apartment and found medicine prescribed to JJ, who had autism, but it was dated January 2019.
In February 2020, USA Today reported that Vallow was arrested in Hawaii on felony child desertion charges, the couple had allegedly fled after an official welfare check on the children.
When the bodies of the children were discovered on Daybell’s property, he was arrested and charged with two counts of destruction, alteration and concealment of evidence, and two counts of conspiracy to commit destruction, alteration or concealment of evidence, People magazine reported.
The couple has pleaded not guilty and they have not been charged with the deaths of the children, KTVB.com reported.
A trial for the case has been set for April 2021, according to the NBC affiliated TV station in Boise, Idaho, KTVB. Kay is hoping to finally get closure after being faced with so much tragedy.
