A US president who was assassinated
A lawyer, Alfred Crozier reported to a US senate banking committee just before the creation of the US Federal Reserve, US President Garfield remarked that “Whoever controls the supply of currency would control the business activities of all the people.” 
The official narrative blames Charles J. Guiteau, a "lone nut" disappointed office seeker, who shot Garfield on 2 July 1881. The wound was not immediately fatal for Garfield, but he succumbed on September 19, 1881. Guiteau was executed for the murder of Garfield in June 1882.
