Part of my job involves monitoring the comments on the KRTV Facebook page – the vast majority are fine, just folks expressing their opinion, etc – an occasional few cross the line and have to be removed – and then there are some that just…well, take a look:
So I did a “little research” and could find zero evidence that Lavey has ever been to Great Falls, let alone written his infamous “bible” here in Great Falls.

While we were in Great Falls I was told that Anton LaVey, the man who wrote the Satanic Bible had lived in Great Falls at the time that he wrote it. Another local man told me that LaVey had been an employee at Maelstrom Air Force Base. A quick check of Anton LaVey on Wikipedia, however, did not confirm either of these claims. LaVey was a controversial character who is credited with the writing of the Satanic Bible, but LaVey spent most of the years in which the satanic bible was written in the State of California.
