“Dateline NBC” will air a new two-hour special on Friday night in which insiders will speak about Lori and Chad Daybell, the Idaho couple charged with the death of Lori’s children.

The episode will feature Samantha Gwilliam, the sister of Tammy Daybell, who the former wife of Chad Daybell.

  • Gwilliam will talk about how she felt when she discovered Tammy had died in her sleep.
  • She will reportedly tell NBC that Tammy Daybell had “been sick and had a coughing fit and passed away.”
  • Chad, she said, “sounded upset and devastated. I mean, I was crying and he was crying. It was a really hard moment.” 

“Dateline” host Keith Morrison — the host of the special — recently told E! News that the Lori Vallow Daybell case made him feel shocked, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

  • “Shock has become a big word in my vocabulary. I mean, people are capable of doing the most horrific things that don’t make any sense. And you don’t understand why and what makes people think and behave the way they do.”
  • “From the moment we first heard about it, it was pretty clear from the start that something very bad had happened to these children.”
