Meet Janis Lee Cox and Barry Lynn Cox, parents of Lori Vallow. They recently appeared on Netflix’s new true-crime offering Sins Of Our Mother. This article is all about Lori Vallow’s parents so keep on scrolling down to learn more about them.
Who Are Lori Vallow Parents?
Lori Vallow was born on 26 June 1973 to her parents Janis Lee Cox and Barry Lynn Cox. Her parents tied the knots in 1965 in Sacramento. Lori along with her siblings was born in California in San Bernardino County – California based on the birth records which are public. Lori’s parents raised her and her siblings in a “very, very devout Mormons” faith.
“As a cheer squad, we were always at Lori’s house. Her mom and dad let us hang out there. We used to swim,” Bernadette Flores-Lopez, Lori’s best friend from high school told Inside Edition. “Everybody was just so welcoming. They had a big family.” The Cox family were “very, very devout Mormons,” Flores-Lopez said, and Lori would attend religious education classes in the morning before school.
“That takes a lot of dedication, in high school, to go before school started to seminary,” Flores-Lopez said. “She never spoke about what it meant to be a Mormon or anything. I just know in her house, there was a giant book of the Book of Mormon.” Lori’s parents didn’t come to her cheer competitions, Flores-Lopez said, but that didn’t seem to bother Lori. They were a quiet family and kept pretty much to themselves, she said.
Janis also appeared on Netflix’s Sins Of Our Mother and said, “It was just a big family, and we did have a lot of fun. I raised all our kids in the LDS church… and Lori always loved the scriptures. She took to it right away.” Even her father claimed that she once “started crying” as an 8-year-old while he was trying to educate her on something simply because she felt like he was a “spiritual giant!”

Barry Lynn Cox Job
One thing we know about Barry Lynn Cox is he penned an entire book focusing on anti-government views and tips on how to avoid paying taxes because he believes them to be unlawful. The book was named “How the American Public Can Dismantle the IRS” which was published in November 2019.
The book was dedicated to the inspired ideals promised to the free people of the United States of America. Barry writes, “Our patriot and paladin immigrant ancestors vigorously promulgated and selflessly defended these laws against the Imperial British tyrant and despotic government propaganda of King George III in 1775…who more than self their country loved.”
He concluded, “This book presents critical information for all freedom-loving USA citizens to consider. In order to have truth and justice, it is important to protect our cherished RIGHTS that are published in our nation’s inalienable Declaration of Independence, the U.S Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Codes [ IRC ] of the United States of America. Foremost, this book debunks the myths of the federal income tax and exposes the illegal origin and evil purpose of the Internal Revenue Service.”
He’s been reprimanded by the Arizona State Bar due to his practices.

Like her daughter, Summer Cox, Janis also believed that her missing grandchildren were alive. Furthermore, she claimed that she had even talked to J.J after he went missing. “I talked to him,” Janis added. “He just takes the phone, you know, and he knows — you know, he knows who we are.”

Janis Lee Cox Job
Janis Lee Cox’s job is unclear. However, Janis and her husband are known to be “Soverign Citizens” based on the ideology of the Posse Comitatus, an anti-Semitic group that was popular in the Midwest United States in the 1970s and 1980s. Sovereign citizens often distinguish citizens into two groups – “14th Amendment citizens”, who are subject to state and federal laws, and they also refer to as “organic citizens”.
“Organic citizens” hold an ideology in which they claim that black people, who only became citizens when the 14th Amendment was passed after the Civil War, have fewer rights, and are entitled to fewer rights, than white individuals, because white individuals, according to their idealogy, have been citizens for much longer, hence “organic citizens.”
It was unclear when they became “soverign citizens” but they sued IRS multiple times over many, many years, claiming they have no obligation to pay taxes.
“Barry Cox and his wife, Janis, have spent decades fighting with the Internal Revenue Service, racking up more than $300,000 in back taxes because of Barry’s belief that ‘federal income tax is unlawful’ and ‘the IRS is a rogue agency,'” court documents show. Barry was also reprimanded by an Arizona judge for “engaging in the unauthorized practice of law” in 2018, according to Arizona State Bar records,” Inside Edition reported.
As if that’s not enough, Barry was sentenced to 366 days in prison for making a false statement to the IRS in 1999.
