The Smarts had their own Gaspar statement
Before Elizabeth, ranaway, a scandal was about to break. A newspaper called The Enquirer dared to print a story that no one else would touch. The same way we long to find a newspaper with balls large enough, to print the Gaspar statement.
The National Enquirer is known for its absurd stories that the general public don’t question as being completely false advertising. However, residents of Salt Lake were so upset by the story that they turned editions around or had stores pull them from the stands. In addition, after Elizabeth was found the Smarts threatened to sue the National Enquirer if it didn’t retract its statement, which it then did.
However, the Smarts asking for a retraction does not mean the story was not true. The Smarts themselves have never denied it and Tom when questioned said 'I do not know what my brothers have done to each other.'
