Former FBI Agent Describes Career Pursuing KC Mobsters

The legend of organized crime in Kansas City tells of racketeering and money-laundering presided over by often colorful mob bosses. Retired FBI agent Bill Ouseley presents the real story of combating and prosecuting organized crime in Kansas City with his presentation In Pursuit of the KC Mob on Sunday, January 18, at 2 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.

This presentation draws from his 21-year career with the FBI Organized Crime Squad. Ouseley is author of Open City: True Story of the KC Crime Family, 1900-1950.

This presentation is part of the Missouri Valley Speakers Series, a program of the Missouri Valley Special Collections at the Central Library. The series is made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending or you may RSVP online. Free parking is available at the Library District Parking Garage at 10th and Baltimore.
