Missouri KKK leader found with fatal gunshot wound to the head

The body of Frank Ancona, who called himself an "imperial wizard", was found next to a river on Saturday.

The wife of Frank Ancona, a Ku Klux Klan leader who had been missing for several days and was found dead on a Missouri riverbank yesterday, has been charged with murder, along with her son, according to local authorities.

'We processed the scene and the body was transported by the Washington County Coroner's office for an autopsy to determine a cause of death, ' police said.

Ancona's body was then taken in Jinkerson's vehicle and dumped near a river.

A family who went fishing for the weekend stumbled upon Frank Ancona's lifeless body on Saturday, February 11, near Belgrade, Montana. That's when authorities were made aware of the disappearance of Frank Ancona via a Facebook post, and one day after the KKK leader's abandoned vehicle was found in the Mark Twain National Forest. When questioned by officers, his wife told police that her husband had been sent across the state to deliver a part by his job, and had not been home since Wednesday - but his workplace told police that they had not sent him anywhere. "That's completely false", Ancona told Riverfront Times in May 2014.

Ancona also told News 4 she was the last person to see her husband at their home in Leadwood on Thursday morning.

A safe inside Ancona and his wife's home had been smashed in with a crowbar and emptied, police discovered when they visited his home.

On Saturday, I requested assistance from the Missouri State Highway Patrol due to the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of Mr. Ancona.

Another KKK guy, Robert Jones, told Patch Frank Ancona was nothing more than a fraudulent schemer and accused him of being Jewish.

An Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan has been found dead with a gunshot wound to the head.

"The only things secret about the Klan are that our rituals and ceremonies are only for members to see", he said.

"If I was a Jew, I'd admit it", he said, calling Jones and his group "drunks and druggies". "I'm doing everything I can to hold it to the principles it's supposed to be by".

The White supremacist leader's death has been ruled a homicide.

"Frank and I weren't getting along too well", Malissa said. He said he would be surprised if there were 40 members spread out among chapters in Potosi, Hayden, Idaho and Pennsylvania.

Yet besides dropping pamphlets for a Klan-based neighborhood watch program, Ancona and his American Knights didn't seem to do all that much.
