In addition to the photo op at the county line, there were stops at the site of Sunset Tourist Court, where the murder is believed to have occurred, and at the grave of Coweta County Sheriff Lamar Potts at Oak Hill Cemetery in Newnan.
The story - with powerful Wallace murdering his employee, relentlessly determined Sheriff Lamar Potts and Heard County fortuneteller Mayhayley Lancaster had 'subject matter for movies which you seldom find.'
Reflecting on Potts, he said, 'You make up characters that have that kind of determination and character and success. To find them in real life is rare.'
Along with the hero, 'you need an opponent,' Atkins said. 'You need a bad guy.'
Wallace and Potts 'were both fascinating people.' Wallace was multilayered - 'someone who not only does bad things but does good things.'
Atkins remembered working with Earl Hindman, who played J.H. Potts, Lamar Potts' deputy and brother.
