How did America’s richest people become its most murdered? Today on Irishman In America, Marion McKeone takes us through the most forgotten series of serial killings in American history, the first case for and the reason why the FBI was created. “The Osage Murders” involved mass conspiracy, corruption and violence that extended all the way to Washington. The subject of David Granny’s award winning book, “Killers Of The Flower Moon” is currently in production as a major motion picture but why has it taken this long for the world to acknowledge this horrendous series of crimes against a small group of wealthy native Americans? With the passing of Colin Powell came Donald Trump’s offensive statement. The former President sank to even greater depths this week but how will history remember Powell and do statements like this muddy the water?
