Mississippi Burning - how do FBI agents find the murders of the civil rights workers?

The case is cracked when the FBI utilizes unorthodox tactics. A black FBI operative is flown in, the mayor of the town is kidnapped and made to believe this operative, who plays a crazed local man, will castrate him with a razor unless he reveals information. He gives the names of local members of the KKK. The FBI uses a â??Divide and Conquerâ?? approach which proves fruitful. A frightened Klansman turns against his â??brothersâ?? and provides the information needed to successfully prosecute.

The FBI's all-out search for the conspirators who killed the three young men, two white and one black, depicted in the movie "Mississippi Burning," was successful, leading three years later to a trial in the courtroom of one of America's most determined segregationist judges
