Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Joe Berlinger and directors Jared Hess and Tyler Measom, MURDER AMONG THE MORMONS is a three-part documentary series that explores a trio of bombings in 1985 that shocked the Salt Lake City Mormon community and threatened the historical foundations of the church altogether. In Salt Lake City in 1985, a series of pipe bombs kills two people and severely injures another, jolting the epicenter of the LDS Church. The murders send further shockwaves through the community when a trove of early Mormon letters and diaries are found destroyed in the vehicle of the third victim, Mark Hofmann, a renowned collector of rare documents, including the infamous White Salamander Letter -- an artifact whose contents threatened to shake the very foundations of Mormonism. As Hofmann fights for his life, investigators race to uncover the truth. On Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released all three episodes of MURDER AMONG THE MORMONS.
