The top 10 ethical meltdowns in Utah
Mark Hofmann forgeries »1 of 10 «
Ravell Call, Deseret News
Beginning in 1980, Mark Hofmann claimed to have found multiple documents purported to be from the early days of LDS Church history. Hofmann’s coup de grace was the McLellin papers which were to be sold to private buyers and then donated to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Unfortunately, the papers and other artifacts either did not exist or were excellent forgeries made in Hofmann’s basement. As things spiraled down, Hofmann resorted to murder in an attempt to prevent discovery of his plotting. Kathleen Sheets and Steven Christensen paid the price for Hofmann’s dive into unethical behavior with their lives. Others, like Gary Sheets and Mac Christensen, were left to pick up the pieces and try to make sense of the events.
