Troy, Amy, and Clay wrap up their discussion about Mark Hofmann and the Salamander Letter Bombings. They discuss the forgeries and events that lead to Hofmann’s capture; outline the events of his prosecution; and discuss the implications of Mark Hofmann’s actions on individuals as well as the church in general.
***Correction: Brent Ashworth was the “vice president and corporate attorney for Nature Sunshine Products,” according to Sillitoe and Roberts’ “Salamander.” He was not the owner or founder.
***At the end of the episode, Clay starts speculating wildy and mentions papers he is suspicious the church has hid. An overview of the papers that he refers to can be found below. Clay has taken steps to find out what has happened to these papers, but he has not yet been successful.
