The details (from wikipedia)


John H. Proctor, Jr. (April 19, 1926 in Reform, Alabama - May 30, 1999 in Meridian, Mississippi) was an American FBI agent and US Navy Veteran during World War II. He was most famous for his role in investigating the murders of Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner in 1964.

Proctor had been stationed by the FBI in Meridian, Mississippi where he cultivated contacts with local law enforcement, the Ku Klux Klan, and other residents. Proctor's interrogation of Klan informant James Jordan was a key break in the case.

The character of FBI agent Rupert Anderson from the film Mississippi Burning, played by Gene Hackman, is loosely based on Proctor.


John Proctor died at the Queen City Nursing Home in Meridian, Mississippi on May 30, 1999 of Heart failure at the age of 73, leaving behind a wife and three children.
