|Daniel Richard Wolfe, D-Boy, among Winnipeg’s most notorious gangland figures, went out in the end without a whimper, an unlikely fall for the founder of Indian Posse, Canada’s largest street gang.|
In 2010 a prison shank meant to intimidate him somehow sliced through a carotid artery. What looked like a nick belied massive internal damage. As Wolfe calmly sipped from a coffee, he collapsed, dead at 33.
Richard Wolfe along with his late brother Daniel co-founded the Indian Posse street gang.
|Wolfe had recently returned to federal custody after leading a spectacular prison break in the fall of 2008. He and five others managed to dig a hole through a wall of the crumbling Regina Correctional Centre. That was Wolfe’s third prison escape; while still a boy he’d vaulted a prison fence using a pole from a ceremonial teepee.|
Wolfe was a wiry 120 lb. and wore his black hair down his back. He was a sociopath and cold-blooded killer who unleashed a flood of drugs and violence and left a wake of death behind him.
At 12 and 13, Danny Wolfe and his older brother Daniel joined forces with five North End Winnipeg friends to create their own “family,” a gang they named the Indian Posse.
