On this date in 1985, The Provo Daily Herald was in the midst of a 12-part … uh, exposé? … titled “Satan Worship in Zion.”

Context: It was the satanic panic, a 1980s hysteria that swept the nation with reports of Satanic cults abusing children in rituals and recruiting teens.

Media reports of widespread devil worship were common at the time.
