Yesterday Mormon Coffee discussed a report that appeared in Deseret News on April 14th which inaccurately portrayed the death of LDS Apostle Parley P. Pratt. Today (April 17) the newspaper printed a correction:
Correction: Parley P. Pratt
Early LDS Church apostle Parley P. Pratt was killed in May 1857 in Arkansas by a man from San Francisco who blamed Pratt for the man’s estrangement from his wife, whom Pratt married. A story in Saturday’s Deseret Morning News incorrectly identified the killer and his motive.
Thank you, Deseret News.
