Tammy Daybell Cause of Death: Autopsy Shows She Died of Asphyxiation

In the Lori Vallow Daybell trial, the prosecution presented the long-awaited findings of Tammy Daybell’s autopsy.

The results of the autopsy were disclosed in the opening statements of the trial on Monday morning by Fremont County Prosecutor Lindsey A. Blake.

Before her untimely death, her friends said that she was in good health and was preparing for a marathon. On October 19, 2019, deputies from the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office responded and discovered Tammy deceased in the Salem, Idaho, house.
