This question is based on an incorrect supposition. Not all Mormons are liars; most Mormons are not liars.

Nothing happened to the Mormons, they are still surviving and thriving as a 14 million member worldwide church. Brigham Young was their second leader, he moved Church headquarters to Utah in 1847, and it has been located there ever since.

The Mormons moved west because it became unsafe for them to stay in Illinois. Joseph Smith, their leader, had been killed. The God told Brigham Young, the new leader, to lead the group to Utah. Young knew the direction because he had read General John C Fremont's description of the place as an ideal place to establish a settlement.

Well, Brigham Young was the leader of the church at the time and physically lead the people to the area, but many Mormons would answer that God lead them, because they believe that Brigham Young was guided through revelations from God.

People were persecuting them. The Mormons left Illinois because Brigham Young, the new Mormon leader, heard about a great valley in the Utah desert, which at the time was still owned by Mexico. In 1847, he led a party of Mormons on a long, hazardous journey to the valley of the Great Salt Lake. The Illinois government asked the Mormons to leave because their presence was causing too much unrest in the state. Under their new leader Brigham Young the decision to leave Illinois was due directly to the murder of original Mormon Joseph Smith and his brother by a mob that attacked the jail where the two brothers were being held.
