Forensic Expert to Discuss Counterfeit and Forgeries of ‘Mormon Murderer’ Mark Hofmann

OGDEN, Utah –Criminologist, noted forensic expert and Weber Historical Society member Steve Mayfield will present “Mark Hofmann Revisited” on Oct. 18 from 7-9 p.m. in the Hurst Center Dumke Legacy Hall.

Mayfield will speak about the double-murder committed by Hofmann in Salt Lake City 25 years ago this month. The murders were an attempt to cover up his many acts of counterfeit and forgery.

Historians continue to discover new forgeries, including the recent find of a forged affidavit about the Mountain Meadows Massacre.

Mayfield will discuss Hofmann’s crimes and explain their continuing impact on the historical community.
