IDAHO FALLS — One of Lori Vallow Daybell’s close cousins is shedding new light on her doomsday beliefs and the influence Chad Daybell may have had on her in the months leading up to the deaths of her children.

Braxton Southwick lived within an hour of Lori’s family growing up and is similar in age to her and her brother Adam. He tells EastIdahoNews.com they were “as close as cousins could be,” but really connected in 2001.

“I’ve always kind of been a prepper but really got into it after the 9/11 terrorist attacks,” Southwick says. “I’d say Lori started prepping a lot around the same time. We talked a lot about prepping. I’d call her and say, ‘Hey, have you read this book?’ and she’d call me, ‘Have you read this book?’ We kind of fueled the fire for passion and prepping with each other.”

Southwick appeared on two seasons of hit National Geographic show “Doomsday Preppers,” has been on multiple television programs discussing prepping and has traveled to several states speaking about preparing for the end of times.

He says Lori wasn’t into collecting food storage, fuel or physical items because she moved a lot. Instead, she focused on spiritual, religious preparation. Southwick recalls visiting Hawaii with his wife in 2017 and staying at Lori and Charles Vallow’s home for a week.

“Pretty much all we did was talk about prepping the whole time – books, our feelings about things – it was just something fun for us,” Southwick says. “It was huge in her life to be a part of it and experience it firsthand. That was what she really, really wanted.”
