‘Murder Among The Mormons’ Has Just Dropped On Netflix

The three-part special follows the story of Mark Hofmann who created explosive devices which resulted in two deaths in Salt Lake City in 1985.

He also created forgeries related to the Latter Day Saint movement.

The three episodes, directed by Jared Hess and Tyler Measom, explore how the killings rocked the Mormon community and there are plenty of shocking discoveries along the way.

Opening up about the series, Jared said: “For me, one of the most interesting things about the whole story is how the Salamander Letter exploited a faithful Latter Day Saint’s deepest fears.

“It directly challenged the origin story of their faith and something that they hold dear and sacred. The chain reaction of events that occurred following that were just unfathomable.

“There was a sigh of relief that the Salamander Letter turned out to be a forgery, but for a lot of people, it did raise questions.

“Jared and I were both raised in the Mormon faith and the story of these bombings, the Salamander Letter, and Mark Hofmann were a part of the world we grew up in. It was a part of our culture.

“In 2014, I’d started the process of putting the documentary together and I got wind from a mutual friend that Jared was also very interested in this story, so we agreed over sushi rolls to do the project together.”
