SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - In light of the death of Mormon leader Richard G. Scott, the Mormon church is postponing an event planned for Tuesday night that would have offered a sneak peek of the renovated history museum.

Officials with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said the preview event will be rescheduled for a later date.

The museum, which has been closed one year for renovations, is scheduled to open to the public on Sept. 30. It is located in Salt Lake City.

The 86-year-old Scott died Tuesday from natural causes. He had been a member of the church’s governing body called the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles since 1988.
