Ex-Wife: Hofmann Life Was A Forgery

Salt Lake Tribune, Sep. 15, 2002 Seventeen years ago next month, Dorie Olds’ world exploded — literally. On Oct. 15, 1985, Mark Hofmann, her husband at the time, killed two people with pipe bombs to divert attention from his now-notorious forgeries of historic documents, including some sold to the LDS Church. During the ensuing investigation, Olds discovered that much of what she thought she knew about the man she married was a lie. And when Hofmann was sentenced to life in prison, her former life went with him. The Mormon mother of four young children lost just about everything.
