Frank Ancona, 51, was an imperial wizard of the KKK, The Kansas City Star reports. His body was found by a family that was fishing at Missouri's Big River near Belgrade.
Ancona was reported missing on Thursday after a U.S. Forest Service employee found his car on a service road.
So far, no one has been charged in ANcona's death, but Washington County Sheriff Zach Jacobsen said "that may change tomorrow."
