Prosecutors released a recorded phone call in court on Tuesday shedding new light on the investigation into the Daybells.

Chad and Lori Daybell are heard talking while investigators search his property. Lori asks if she should pray, while Chad sounds downtrodden.

Officers ultimately found the remains of Lori’s missing children. The phone call went, in part, as follows:

Lori: "Are you okay?"

Chad: "They're searching the property."

Lori: "Inside the house?"

Chad: "No. They're out on the property."

Lori asked if law enforcement was seizing items and Chad said they were searching and have a search warrant.

Chad: "We'll see what transpires."

Lori asked Chad what she could do for him.

Chad: "I'm feeling pretty calm. I would call Mark though and talk with him," adding that he spoke with Mark.

Chad: "I love you so much."

Lori asked if she should try to call him later

Chad replied: "I don't know.... I love you and we'll talk soon."

Lori: "I love you baby."
