Polygamy in Arizona








New Times staff writer John Dougherty spent months examining the secretive, isolated polygamist Mormon communities that straddle the Arizona-Utah border north of the Grand Canyon. He found a culture of sexual abuse and psychological torment as well as the unlawful expenditure of millions of dollars in public money. And it's all been going on with little attempt by the state to help the residents or put an end to the fraud.
