There were a number of early Mormon letters and diaries 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 crack the foundations of Mormonism. Investigators were forced to rush for answers as Hofmann fought for his life.
