Conroy, special agent in charge of the Kansas City office of the federal bureau of investigation, after Conroy and agents under him had effected Warren's arrest. The youth is charged with writing three letters in an attempt to extort $250,000 from James M. Kemper, president of the Commerce Trust company.
