Murder Among the Mormons

Summary:

Your next true-crime obsession. This three-part limited series explores a shocking story that for a long time was little known outside of the Mormon community. That’s about to change. In Salt Lake City in 1985, a series of pipe bombs killed two people and severely injured another. The injured man, Mark Hofmann, was in possession of a number of documents that contained explosive information about Joseph Smith, the founder of the Latter-day Saints movement, that had the potential to change the LDS Church forever–if they were authentic. It’s a story full of twists and turns and lies and deceit that’s never been told in such detail before. The series is directed by Napoleon Dynamite’s Jared Hess, who is LDS (and making his nonfiction debut), and documentarian Tyler Measom, an ex-Mormon.
