Chad Daybell calls Chandler’s funeral home

Two tapes, released Tuesday by Chandler Police, reveal Chad Daybell called the Valley of the Sun Mortuary and Cemetery in Chandler on July 11, 2019, the same day Charles Vallow died.

He said they wanted to cremate the body and ship it to Louisiana and that he hoped to get a “rough” estimate of the price.
