(KSL News) KSL has obtained a confrontational letter that Crandall Canyon mine owner Robert Murray sent to Governor Huntsman and gave to miners' families on Wednesday.

In it, Murray refers to a KSL Radio Nightside Project interview in which the governor said, "If it takes every dollar this guy has in his bank account, he needs to bring closure to this darn thing."

Murray writes, "Governor Huntsman, I suggest that, for your own sake, you address me as my employees do, as Mr. Murray, as you have shown the ultimate disrespect to the heroes who have died and were maimed last Thursday, August 16, and whose bodies I helped recover with my own hands."

Friday night the governor's office told us he is only looking to the future to ensure closure for the families and safety for the miners.
