177) John Killian Wren
The First Man with Native American Heritage to Work for the FBI
Born: 1 July 1875, San Marcos, Texas, United States of America
Died: 13 April 1939, El Paso, Texas, United States of America
He also worked in the worst Federal Prisons of the time.
Very little information is available out there, but I learned about him through the book Killers of the Flower Moon, which details the Osage Murders. Its written by the same man who brought us Lost City of Z, so it’s really good, and just like Lost City of Z, Killers is also getting a movie! Reportedly Martin Scorsese is directing, and he hopes for it to star Leonardo di Caprio and Robert de Niro. Hopefully they include John Killian’s role in the film. I’ll keep you updated when more comes out.
