Where Is Dianna Lafferty Now?
Dianna was completely out of Ron’s sight after their split. She was devastated to hear that her responsible and loving husband could do such inhuman activity in the name of God.
Pyre and Tada found the CCTV footage of Dianna visiting a store in Florida. It was found that she was shifting from place to place and changing her address in order to protect herself and her children from the Lafferty brothers.
Does It Represent Real Life Person?
Dianna Lafferty is a real-life person portrayed by Denise Gough in the mini-series and every episode of the series is based on true events.
Dan Lafferty was an obsessive Mormon who was married to Matilda- a divorcee with two children. Dan found the practice of polygamy biblically justified that he even considered marrying his 14-years old step-daughter. But later he dropped the idea of marrying his daughter and got married to another woman.

Slowly soaking up Dan's fanaticism, Ron also started to get lured toward plural marriage. He started to abuse Dianna and considered her a slave to him.
After getting excommunicated from the Church of LDS, the brothers joined the School of Prophet. Soon after that financial troubles started to take a toll on Dianna’s life. Dianna wrote a letter to the Prophet, Stake President Kimball about the illegal deeds of the Lafferty siblings.
Terrified and unable to bear the abuses of Ron, Dianna reached out to Brenda who advised her to file a divorce. After the divorce was finalized in 1983, Dianna fled to Florida with her six children.
Ron was outraged by Brenda’s support to Dianna for their divorce and schemed to kill her. The Lafferty brothers accused her of manipulating Allen against them and thwarting him from joining the School of Prophets.
Misguided by their ideology, Ron and Dan slit the throat of Brenda and her daughter. They were also planning to kill Dianna as she was an obstacle in the path of the rules of Heavenly.
They were arrested and sentenced to death. Ron died of natural causes in prison while Dan is waiting for his execution in prison.
