alias Tom Kimball

2020-10-13: died by suicide

NOTE: FLOODLIT is well aware that Tom Kimball was never charged with a sex crime. He died by suicide before formal charges were made against him. According to our posting policy, he can be included in our database because he was an active Mormon at the time of at least some of his alleged crimes, and because the allegations have already been repeatedly discussed by a broad audience. Our goal is to provide an accurate review of allegations in each case.

From Tom Kimball’s obituary in 2020:

“As we lay Tom’s body to rest, we recognize the pain he caused in many lives on. We mourn for and stand by each victim.”

We don't know whether the accused served a full-time LDS mission.

We don't know whether the accused was married in an LDS temple.
