KKK leader Frank Ancona discovered dead from gunshot wound near Missouri river


The mother and son are accused of shooting and killing Frank Ancona at his home in the 1100 block of Mill Street in Leadwood, Missouri in the early morning hours of Thursday, Feb. 9.

Ancona was last seen going to work on Wednesday morning by his wife, the Journal reported.

Ancona's body was found Saturday afternoon in the Big River, off Highway C on Big River Road near Belgrade, Missouri.

Today police said Malissa, 44, and her son Paul Edward Jinkerson Jr, 24, have both been charged with his murder. And his employer confirmed to Dickey that they had not, in fact, asked him to deliver a part across the state.

While searching the Ancona home, police found "extensive blood evidence" in the master bedroom.

The body was found by local fishermen. Founded around 2009, the Traditionalist American Knights have made headlines in recent years for such actions as distributing fliers during the Ferguson, Mo., protests warning that they were poised to use lethal force to protect themselves from demonstrators. Police report that Ancona's body was discovered with a bullet wound to the head.

"Jinkerson, according to a probable cause statement, shot Frank Ancona on Thursday in his bedroom as he slept before. dumping Ancona's body in a wooded area near Belgrade", the Post said.

Police say the vehicle had been wiped down, and the smell of a chemical was present.

Authorities have said the investigation was ongoing, and the Washington County coroner told a local paper it is being treated as a homicide investigation. It announced she needed a roommate, and she reportedly told authorities she had written the post because her husband had told her he planned to file for divorce and that she'd need help covering rent.

Two people are in jail in connection with the death of KKK leader Frank Ancona of Leadwood, MO.

Also missing were all Ancona's firearms that the man normally kept in the family home.

"I don't believe it for a second that he did it", said lawyer Eric Barnhart, who represents Jinkerson in an unrelated case in which he faces property damage and attempted stealing charges. The arrest came as a result of drug-related charges and was not connected to Ancona, Jacobsen said. St. Francois County Prosecuting Attorney Jerrod Mahurin didn't publicly suggest a motive.
