35 years ago today - Jan 23, 1987

The imprisonment of Mark Hofmann for second-degree murder in the bombing-deaths of two people in Salt Lake City in October 1985 as his effort to conceal his fraudulent business transactions in Mormon documents. As part of a plea-bargain, Hofmann also admits to forging Mormon documents for several years, including two controversial ones for which he receives the greatest financial rewards and notoriety: the so-called "Joseph Smith Money Digging Letter" and the so-called "Martin Harris Salamander Letter."
