Responsible for dozens of murders and countless other crimes, the Dixie Mafia rose to power in Biloxi during the 1960's, and their reign of terror lasted decades.

DIXIE MAFIA shows the rise and fall of real American gangsters, taking viewers into the lives of the crime bosses, organization members and law enforcement officers that still battle in America's deep south.
