Twenty-Year Reflections On The Mark Hofmann Bombings

October 2005 will mark the twentieth anniversary of the Mark Hofmann murders, a tragedy that claimed two innocent lives and that has continued to impact Mormon history, the Church’s national profile, and the world of document dealing and forensic science ever since. What has happened in the past twenty years? Where are the key players now? How have Hofmann forgeries affected historical research and the document market? And most important, what have we as a community, religious tradition, and individuals learned from this tragic episode?
