Many thanked the seven law enforcement agencies across three states involved in the case and their dedication to justice and collaborative teamwork.

Larry Woodcock, the grandfather of JJ Vallow, said he "got sad" saying "justice had been carried out for everybody involved, but he was sad for [everyone involved in the case] "for going through the tragedy of it all." Woodcock went on to say, "every day I want to get up and be here for justice and for ya'll; the media has been amazing and I want to personally thank you."

Kay Woodcock said "everyones support is how we got through this," and saying they would see eveyone in Arizona for the continuing trial of Lori Vallow-Daybell where she is facing two conspiracy to commit murder charges in Maricopa County.

Tammy Daybell's aunt Vicki Hoban said "they got justice for everyone," despite a "crazy convoluted case filled with crazy religious creations", and went on to thank Judge Boyce and all those who supported her family.

Based on the jury's decision, the court sentenced Chad Daybell to death for the murders of Tylee Ryan, JJ Vallow, and Tammy Daybell.

In addition, the court gave Chad Daybell 15 years each for both counts 7 and 9 regarding insurance fraud.
