A woman who had claimed her Ku Klux Klan leader husband was shot to death by her son now says in a letter from jail that she was the one who pulled the trigger. The wife of a southeast Missouri Ku Klux Klan leader has changed her story about who killed her husband.
But in the Sept. 26 letter to Judge Wendy Wexler Horn, Ancona wrote that as a court date for her son approached, she wanted “to let the court know now, that he did not pull the trigger.”
Her letter says that she was “under the influence” when she spoke to detectives and couldn’t recall what happened the night her husband was shot. Ancona also complains that she has not been given her medication and was deemed mentally ill by the state of Missouri in 2003.
