The FBI was able to finally find the murders of the civil rights workers by setting up a an undercover investigation where they have a black FBI agent act as a crazy kidnapper. The FBI agent kidnaps the mayor and gets him revel the names of members of the local KKK. Then the FBI brings in some of these members and gets one of them to testify against the others.
