30 years ago today - Oct 31, 1985

Mark Hofmann released from LDS Hospital [after accidently blowing himself up with a bomb]. Later in the day he is charged with illegal possession of a machine gun. He pleads innocent and posts $50,000 bail. A Daniel Boone letter (1775) is sold at a Sotheby's auction for $29,000. The letter was a Hofmann creation. Sotheby's later buys letter back.
