“CULT” dad Chad Daybell was spotted watching — and then trying to leave — the scene where police found human remains on his property last week, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Investigators confirmed they found the “charred” remains of Daybell’s wife Lori Vallow’s children, Tylee Ryan, 17, and JJ Vallow, seven, in the backyard of his Idaho home on June 9.

Per the affidavit tweeted out by AZFamily.com reporter Kim Powell, Daybell was “continuously watching where officers were searching.”
When he tried to leave, cops saw him, pulled him over, and arrested him “due to the fact that human remains were discovered on his property.”

The document also states investigators found on the property human remains wrapped in “a layer of white plastic,” and when dirt was removed, was found to be wrapped in a tight layer of black plastic and “secured with gray duct tape.”
The other set of humans remains was described as being “both charred and uncharred.”

The document states the FBI found texts Daybell sent his late wife, Tammy, who died in October, on September 9, 2019, explaining to her what he was supposedly doing.
Daybell claimed he had shot and killed a raccoon on the property and was burying the animal in his fire pit.
“Well, I’ve had an interesting morning! I felt I should burn all of the limb debris by the fire pit before it got too soaked by the coming rains,” Daybell texted Tammy just before noon on September 9, according to the FBI.
“While I did so, I spotted a big raccoon along the fence. I hurried and got my gun, and he was still walking along. I got close enough that one shot did the trick. He is now in our pet cemetery,” Daybell said. “Fun times!”

The day prior, September 8, was the last known sighting of Tylee, in Yellowstone National Park.
The affidavit states neighbors told authorities that Daybell rarely used the backyard fire pit until recently, and said he used it more often since Tammy’s death.
Daybell was arrested last week after human remains — confirmed to be those of Tylee and her brother JJ Vallow, seven — were found in the backyard in Idaho.
Per the documents, authorities pinged Vallow’s now-dead brother Alex Cox on two separate occasions to Daybell’s property.
Those dates were September 9, and on September 23 — which was the day after JJ was last seen alive.

Charlene Campbell, who attended Avow, the same church as Daybell, told DailyMail.com that Daybell and Vallow were “convinced” of revelations he had.
The couple have been accused by family of being in a “doomsday cult.”
“Chad and Lori were so convinced of his revelations, they believed there was going to be a massive earthquake and it was going to wipe out Salt Lake City,” Campbell said.
“It is a predicted earthquake but they believed they knew the date. According to my friend [in Avow], she understood that he truly believed those children were [zombies],” Campbell added.

Campbell said Daybell “convinced Lori” of the belief that the children were possessed by evil spirits.
“And then they destroyed the children,” Campbell said.
“They were convinced they would not have to deal with the consequences because the fallout of that earthquake would be so monumental, all the way into Idaho.”
“It would be such a huge distraction, no one would know that they buried the kids,” she said.

Vallow’s own friend, Melanie Gibb, previously spoke of the mom’s alleged thoughts about the earthquake.
“She believed there was going to be an earthquake that was going to hit so large in Utah by the end of 2019 that (people) wouldn’t notice anything in her personal life going on,” Gibb told East Idaho News.
“(She said), ‘So when Chad and I get married someday, nobody will notice we’re married because of the earthquake and different destruction going on.’”
Vallow would speak about how the world would end in 2020, Gibb said.
The friend of the “cult mom” added that Vallow also believed Jesus Christ would return to earth.
