How did Alex Cox die? What happened to Lori Vallow’s brother explained
Sins of Our Mother is the latest addition to Netflix’s ever-growing library of true crime documentaries, joining the likes of Making a Murderer, Night Stalker and Tiger King.
The new three-episode series tells the story of Lori Vallow Daybell and the disappearance of her children, Tylee Ryan and Joshua Jackson “JJ” Vallow, in 2019.
Another key character in Sins of Our Mother is a man named Alex Cox, who died in December 2019 amid Tylee and JJ’s disappearance.
Who is Alex Cox?
Alex is the older brother of Vallow Daybell, whose birth name was Lori Norene Cox.
As Lori’s brother, Alex figures prominently in the story of her life and is most involved in many incidents with two of Lori’s five husbands.
In 2007, according to a Fox 10 Phoenix report, Alex tasered Lori’s second husband, Joseph Anthony Ryan Jr., and claimed he was abusive to Lori when they were married from 2001 to 2005.
Alex pleaded guilty to assaulting Ryan and was sentenced to 90 days in jail, which he served in Austin, Texas.
Alex killed one of Lori’s ex-husbands
12 years after the argument with Ryan, Alex was involved in another incident, this time with Lori’s fourth husband, Charles Vallow.
On July 11, 2019, Alex shot and killed Charles at Vallow’s home in Chandler, Arizona.
Cox claimed the killing was an act of self-defense, according to Law & Crime, after he went to confront Vallow about his sister’s alleged abuse.
Alex claimed Charles hit him in the head with the bat and he responded by pulling a gun.
The local police did not pursue the case further.
How did Alex Cox die?
Alex Cox died of natural causes aged 51 on 12 December 2019.
According to the autopsy report released after his death, Alex’s death was the result of bilateral pulmonary thromboembolism, where an individual suffers circulatory and respiratory collapse.
The fatal condition was caused by a pulmonary embolism, where a blockage such as a blood clot can prevent blood flow in the arteries leading to and from the lungs.
The 58-page autopsy report states that before his death, Cox was experiencing chest pain and shortness of breath before being found unresponsive on the bathroom floor.
Sins of Our Mother is now available to stream on Netflix following its release on Wednesday, September 14, 2022.
