2023 year in review


Mormon apostle’s grandson and former stake president David McConkie arrested on child S abuse charges. He was a deputy district attorney and LDS bishop and stake president in Colorado Springs Colorado. Arrested on August 30 2023 and charged with S assaulting a child for 9 years, from 2004 to 2013. Some of the alleged abuse may have taken place during McConkie’s tenure as a Mormon bishop. He was a stake president from 2016 to 2021. He is a grandson of Mormon apostle Bruce R McConkie, whose brother Oscar co-founded the church’s law firm Kirton McConkie. Our sources indicate that he was released due to allegations that he was physically and emotionally abusive toward members of his family. Details at floodlit.org.
