The Bombings

October 15, 1985


Steven F. Christensen, a Mormon bishop, picked up a box in front of his office in the
Judge Building located in downtown Salt Lake City. It turned out to be a motion
activated "booby-trapped shrapnel bomb" and he was killed immediately.

Later that morning another package exploded killing Kathleen Sheets, across town in exclusive Olympus Cove. The package was addressed to her husband, J. Gary Sheets who was also a bishop in the Mormon Church, and who had been in a business partnership with Steven Christensen.

The very next day, yet another blast. This time, in a car, by the old Deseret Gym, and the
victim is Mark Hofmann. He loses some fingers and gets injured very badly, but survives.
