In her new book, "When the Moon Turns to Blood: Lori Vallow, Chad Daybell and a Story of Murder, Wild Faith and End Times," Leah Sottile describes how a history of belief in the supernatural can be deadly. Although the story of how Lori Vallow and Chad Daybell allegedly killed their children is not too far into the past, the history of religion, missing children and deception are front and center in the tale Sottile tells. An independent investigative reporter, Leah explains how she discovered this story, how she reported on it, and why she felt the history behind Lori and Chad's lives must be understood by us all.
