A dealer in Mormon artifacts who confessed to the pipe bomb murders of two people and the forgery of dozens of Mormon documents has contended that a third bomb was intended to kill himself. Mark Hofmann, in a lengthy confession made public Friday, said he planted the first two bombs in October, 1985, to prevent the forgeries from being disclosed.

A gunman who over the weekend killed a nurse and held nine people, including three newborns, hostage for 18 hours, was involved in a "weak" suicide attempt, officials said in Salt Lake City. Richard L. Worthington jumped backwards off a table and hit his head on the floor in his mental health unit cell in Salt Lake City, Sheriff's Lt. David Bishop said. The wound required stitches.
