"Clyde Felt has confessed to cutting the throat of old man Collins, at his request. The old man was a moral degenerate. The boy is a son of David P. Felt." Grandson of the former general authority, Clyde Felt is fourteen. Despite this blood atonement murder, LDS leaders allow the young man to be endowed and married in the temple eight years later.
