Summary of Killers of the Flower Moon

On the 24th of May 1921, Mollie Burkhart of the Osage settlement town of Gray Horse, Oklahoma, began dreading the worst about her elder sister, Anna Brown. Anna had vanished three days earlier, which wasn't uncharacteristic of her since she disappeared at times. Their sister, Minnie, had passed away three years ago due to a mysterious illness that the doctors had not been able to explain.

Mollie and her sisters were registered members of the Osage tribe and had a fortune. When the Osage were directed to this reservation in the early 1870s, they were not aware of its worth. They later found that the land was situated above some of the most prominent oil deposits in the U. S. Prospectors started paying leases and royalties to the Osage to acquire the oil in the early 1900s. These came in the form of quarterly checks to every name on the tribal roll.

The amount started small but gradually turned into thousands of dollars. The payments kept increasing every year to convert the tribe's collective fortune into millions of dollars. Because of this, the Osage had lavish lifestyles. Along with other luxuries, Mollie also had a huge number of servants.

Mollie was married to a 28-year-old white man, Ernest Burkhart. He had been living with his uncle William K. Hale when he met Mollie as her chauffeur. They got married despite some obstacles and had two children, Elizabeth and James.

Mollie also tended to their mother, Lizzie, who had joined her after the death of their father. Anna was last seen on the 21st of May when she had arrived to look after Lizzie on Ernest's request. Anna was the eldest of her siblings and Lizzie's favorite. Mollie was hosting a luncheon that day and needed Anna's help.

However, Anna was troubled since she had recently gone through a divorce with her husband Oda Brown. At Mollie's house, Anna was drunk and flirted with Ernest's younger brother, Bryan, who she had dated at times. Anna then fought with everyone. Mollie was supposed to look after her mother and Ernest took the guests to Fairfax, where his uncle lived. Bryan offered to drop Anna off.
