Lynn Packer, nephew of Boyd K. was an investigative journalist who looked closely into the claims of Paul H. Dunn and discovered there to be startling concerns, not just with his storytelling but also his financial activities. In this three part interview Gina and Henning Muller (of Mormons Stories Europe) interview Lynn and discuss his new book “Lying for the Lord.”
In the first two episodes Henning interviews Lynn about his life, work with broadcasting in
Vietnam, his interaction with and feelings for his uncle Boyd and the events that led up to the publication of the Book “Lying for the Lord – The Paul H. Dunn Stories” as well as the AFCO Fraud scandal where Paul Dunn had acted as co-president. We also discuss Lynn’s thoughts on the LDS Church’s stance on contemporary issues.
In the third episode Gina interviews Lynn about the book and the life of Paul H. Dunn, his baseball and war stories, the financial fraud scandals and his efforts to protect himself from legal and ecclesiastical consequence which opens a different dimension to the life of Paul Dunn. Lynn speaks more candidly about the church’s influence on investigative journalism and the problem of white-collar fraud in Mormon culture in general.
