"I've actually taken a lot of heat from other white nationalists because of that", he said.

Ancona's body was found in the Big River near Belgrade, Mo.in Washington County over the weekend.

Authorities determined that the deceased man found near the river was Ancona and that he died from a gunshot wound to the head.

On Friday, the sheriff said his office learned Ancona had gone missing. His body was located a few miles from where his auto had been originally found.

All of Ancona's firearms were also missing, Dickey told the Daily Journal.

Police have arrested the step-son of Frank Ancona on an unrelated warrant.

At almost the same time as their search warrants were being executed, Ancona's body was discovered roughly 70 miles from St. Louis. The title "Imperial Wizard" is given to a national leader within the group. Missouri contributes many members, he said. And three of its members were charged in Florida in 2015 with plotting to kill a black man.

According to Washington County Sheriff Zach Jacobsen, the vehicle was discovered by an employee of the Federal Forestry Service parked on a remote service road.

During News 4's interview Sunday, Ancona said she has been working with the St. Francois County Sheriff's Department in the investigation because she believes the local officials are not being cooperative. After the shooting, Ancona's body was placed in Jinkerson's vehicle and dumped in the Belgrade, Missouri area. His body was located Saturday by a family on a fishing trip.

Deputies say Ancona was last seen by his wife. Malissa Ancona told police that Frank Ancona said earlier that he was traveling out of state and meant to file for divorce when he returned, claiming he took all of his guns from the safe except the one he carried regularly as a concealed carry permit holder. His employer told police Ancona was not sent on a such a delivery.

Police found a safe in the couple's home busted open by a crowbar, but said a burglary was not suspected.

A later search of Ancona's home in Leadwood uncovered a number of anomalies, according to local reports.
