John R. Llewellyn
John R. Llewellyn, retired Salt Lake County Sheriff's
Lieutenant, specialized in sex crime investigation that
included polygamy complaints. He compiled an intelligence
file on mass murderer Ervil LeBaron, who in 1977 ordered the
death of Dr. Rulon C. Allred, leader of Utah's second
largest polygamist group.
In order to best combat and understand the polygamist,
deputy Llewellyn studied Mormon doctrine and was converted
to Mormonism, and then Mormon Fundamentalism. Impressed with
the integrity, virtue and undaunted conviction of many of
the polygamists, Llewellyn became a member of AUB, but when
the leadership claimed they were the sole conduit to a
celestial exaltation, Llewellyn left.
Llewellyn is recognized as an expert on Mormon
Fundamentalism and polygamy. He is also the lead
investigator in a lawsuit against polygamist James D.
Harmston and his True and Living Church, headquartered at
Manti, Utah, as well as a consultant for the Attorney
John Llewellyn is uniquely qualified as a polygamy expert
and can speak to the issues in a way no one else can. He is
highly articulate and thoroughly knowledgeable about law
enforcement polygamy strategies, government attitudes, and
the vast issues inside and outside of polygamy. He knows all
the leaders of polygamy groups, many of their members, and a
multitude of polygamists who live outside a group. Other
