Was that out of corinth where the bad things happened? I grew up in holly springs and saw walking tall in the theater there as a child, before it burned down.

(If Romney needs my vote to win Mississippi, he is in a heck of a lot trouble more than me.)
Corinth had their fair share of the Dixie Mafia, especially at the Stateline on HW 45. This was the stopping place for people traveling from Chicago to Florida, hence the nickname for Corinth, “Little Chicago”. People that owned the hotels here in Corinth would offer gambling, prostitution, and would rob the unsuspecting travelers. Buford Pusser gained his notoriety on the Stateline cornering some of these criminals. Most of them still alive are now in their 70’s and 80’s and are quiet in their retirement.
It was called the state line mob
Supposedly one of Gillich’s shooters had a hand in the botched killing of Pusser in which his wife died
Even Jackson had a Marcello branch....Leo Hall...aka Bonofiglioli.....vending...juke boxes....pinball payoff machines...and so forth
Like i said though....like bootlegging....this stuff is largely over
