50 years ago today - Aug 20, 1972

Joel F LeBaron is murdered in Mexico by order of his brother Ervil. This is the first fatality involving polygamy since 1886 and the first killing of a Mormon schismatic leader since 1862. However, it is unfortunately only the first of dozen or more murders involving Ervil LeBaron's violent group, The Church of the Lamb of God.
