S1E6: Ark of Bulrushes

Lindsay and John head north to southeastern Idaho to discuss the murder of Gobo Fango. Fango was a freed African, probably Latter-day Saint, and sheep herder who got caught up in the range wars of the 1880s. They are joined by Amanda Hendrix-Komoto and Mica McGriggs who both discuss the violence and the treatment of disadvantaged groups in this time period. Was Fango murdered or trespassing on a cattleman’s land? Did his being Mormon help or hurt his case?
