Mark Hofmann injured by bomb in his car. Some speculate that the bomb was intended for Brent Ashworth or Christensen's attorney.
Police identify Hofmann as suspect in Christensen and Sheets murders, motive linked to dealing in fraudulent documents. Police with search warrant go through Hofmann's house, find a green high school letterman'sjacket, and, in a locked basement room, books and manuscripts and note cards containing words from the Book of Mormon.
