Former Jackson, Miss. U.S. Attorney Dunn Lampton, who was appointed by President Bush in 2001,  and led the prosecutions in some old civil rights case,  died Wednesday of  natural causes, the station WAPT reported. He was 60.

While serving as U.S. Attorney, his office led the prosecution of once-dormant civil rights cases against reputed Ku Klux Klansmen Ernest Avants and James Ford Seale, the station reported.

His office also prosecuted  hundreds of fraud cases after Hurricane Katrina. He retired in 2009.
