This scene was an reenactment of the attempted murder of Sheriff Pusser and the murder of his wife, Pauline who were both shot as they were driving past the New Hope Methodist Church on New Hope Road in McNairy County, Tennessee on the morning of the 12th August 1967.

Those who were responsible for the attack were:

Kirksey Nix- Leader of the Dixie Mafia based at Biloxi in Harrison County, Mississippi, was involved in a "lonely hearts" scam targeting gay men that he ran while in prison, he had been involved in three murders since Pauline Pusser's murder, these were:

. Frank Corso- Local greengrocer executive, shot during a burglary on his family home in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana in the early hours of the 11th April 1971.

As he was making his getaway from Corso's home, Corso's wife shot at Nix with her husband's gun, hitting Nix in the lower back.

For Corso's murder, he was sentenced to life imprisonment at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana near the Louisiana-Mississippi State Line.

. Vincent Sherry- A local circuit court judge shot along with wife; Margaret at their home in Biloxi, Mississippi on the night of the 15th September 1987.

. Margaret Sherry-A local councilwoman and the wife of Judge Sherry, had plans to run for mayor and get rid of police and political corruption in Biloxi as well as shutting down the strip clubs owned by the Dixie Mafia, shot along with her husband.

It was originally thought that the Sherries' murder were the result of Margaret Sherry's plans to run for Mayor and clean up Biloxi, but it was revealed by Bobby Joe Fabian (a fellow inmate serving time with Nix) that the Sherries were killed because the money made from Nix's Lonely Hearts Scam was skimmed by Pete Halat (who was also involved in the scam); Judge Sherry's former law partner (and later Mayor of Biloxi) and to avoid being killed, Halat falsely named Sherry as the one who skimmed the money, leading Nix to order the murder of Judge Sherry.

Margaret's murder occurred because Halat warned Nix (while visiting Nix in prison) that killing Judge Sherry would increase Margaret's chances for Mayor and would allow her to go after the Dixie Mafia and their associates within the local government and the police, so Nix said that Margaret would have to be killed as well.

Carl Douglas White- Known as Towel Head, was the leader the Dixie Mafia sub gang; the Stateline Mob and the former boyfriend of Louise Hathcock; a local brothel madam who shot dead by Pusser during a raid on Hathcock's place at the Shamrock Motel on the morning of the 1st February 1966.

White later fled Tennessee but was shot dead by a small-time crook named Berry Smith in parking lot of the El Ray Motel on US Highway 45 at Corinth, Mississippi on the 4th April 1969.

George McGann- Conman and hitman, was named in at least 30 murders that he committed on the orders from the Dixie Mafia, was also named in the assassination of JFK, later fled Tennessee shortly after the Pauline Pusser's murder and ended up in New Mexico where he was spent time in the jails all over the state.

Later returned back to his home state of Texas, he was shot dead in Lubbock, Texas on the night of the 30th September 1970 by Ronnie Weeden; a local that he held hostage earlier in the night.

Gary McDaniel- Dixie Mafia hitman, later fled Tennessee after Pauline Pusser's murder and ended up Mississippi, was later under indictment for conspiring to murder a Mississippi prosecutor, later found shot dead in the Sabine River near Quitman, Texas in early March 1969.
