Netflix's latest big release Murder Among The Mormons lifts the lid on the man described by series co-director Tyler Measom as the "best forger to ever get caught".
Intriguing, guiding viewers through Mark Hofmann's crimes is his ex-wife.
Doralee “Dorie” Olds Hofmann gives detailed insight into three explosions that killed two people and severely injured another back in 1985.
She tells is exactly what type of a man he was – and how they fell in love.
Hofmann was raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by two devoutly religious parents.
But things unravelled – and it led to murder.
Steve Christensen and Kathy Sheets lost their lives as Hofmann tried to cover up other crimes, including forgeries of precious Mormon historical documents.
Earned an associate degree in nutrition at Dixie College enrolling at Utah State University, she there met her future husband.
Doralee and the killer began a relationship in April 1979 and got engaged three months later.
They didn't hang around are were married by September.
But in 1987, they divorced after his grizzly crimes came to light.
The former missionary is still in prison today and now we will get to find out more about the Salt Lake City attack.
His former love first broke her silence back in 2005.
"I was choosing not to see or was unable to see," she told Deseret News.
"I could have taken action if I had been where I am now. It was whatever he says goes, and he is the head of a house.
"It's not true doctrine, but it's something that just sort of seeped in, like a smell in a room that permeates and no one really knows where it's coming from."
She went on: "Unless you are conscious of what's going on, you're not aware of why you are feeling that way or what is happening.
"It was too hard or I was unwilling to take a look to see the clues and things that would have told me, 'Something is off here, something needs to be changed and done.' If I had been more awake and conscious, maybe people wouldn't have died. I don't know."
The trailer for the three-hour programme opens with the chilling words: "The only way to keep a secret between two people is to kill one of them – it's kind of true."
A description of the series reads: "The murders send further shockwaves through the community when a trove of early Mormon letters and diaries are found destroyed in the vehicle of the third victim, a renowned collector of rare documents, including the infamous White Salamander Letter – an artifact whose contents threatened to shake the very foundations of Mormonism.
"As he fights for his life, investigators race to uncover the truth."
