Alden Barrett’s death in 1971 helped feed ‘Satanic panic’ fears, and now a Utah rock band is telling his story.

(Bethany Baker | The Salt Lake Tribune) After Alden Barrett took his own life in 1971, an author penned a fictionalized version of his diary that gave a depiction of a teen's fall into drugs and Satanism titled "Jay's Journal." This narrative heavily influenced the growing "Satanic panic" of the 1970's. Now, a Utah band named "Bay of Pigs" is telling Alden's story.
