    Does this having anything to do with the book, Mormon Murders? That book was fascinating. If you haven't read it, you should.

    -----------------

    Answer: Yes. It's the same case, and Hoffman is the same murderer.

    I have not read Salamander, but I have read the Mormon Murders.

    I suspect that they look at the situation in a somewhat different light.

    Mormon Murders may not be on the "approved" reading list. (it was fascinating though)

    Fascinating. Even though he's a liar, what he writes rings true. Except the suicide part. Where and how that bomb went off makes me think it may have been intended for someone else. We'll probably never know.

    I read the book "Salamandre" which was written by reporters on the DN. I couldn't put it down. It was fascinating. It basically came to the same conclusions that Hoffman states were his motives in this letter. He wanted to make money and he wanted to destroy the Church. When he got into financial trouble, he wanted to stop the action and stop Steven Christensen from exposing him. We all see where that got him. He has destroyed the lives of many others as well as his own.

    The letter now released - What is the status of it? What was it's purpose? Requested? By whom? Released now per what requirement or request?

    The life of somebody overcome by the greatest deceiver: The Adversary.

    It's best to stay honest or he will pull you down.

    He has made a habit of manipulating and lying...

    Although it is *interesting* to see it... One a manipulator and liar, always a manipulator an liar.
