35 years ago today - Jan 16, 1988

Son-in-law of the deceased Fundamentalist John Singer bombs an LDS chapel in Kamas, Utah. This begins a several-week stand-off between this polygamous clan and law enforcement officers. This results in even more cooperation between law enforcement and Mormon Fundamentalists, who repudiate the Singer family's actions and seek a peaceful solution. One lawman dies in arresting the family.
