The Nation

January 19, 1988

More than 150 officers wearing fatigues and packing automatic weapons ringed the Marion, Utah, area compound of a slain rebel polygamist as 14 relatives, including a suspect in a church bombing, holed up for a third day. Relatives and authorities said Addam Swapp, reportedly married to two of the slain polygamist's daughters, and other family members were armed as they waited in a log house belonging to Vickie Singer. She was one of two widows left by John Singer when he was killed on Jan. 18, 1979, by police seeking to arrest him for refusing to send his children to public school.
