Nixon was a deputy employed by the Collinsport Sheriff’s department. He answered directly to Sheriff George Patterson. In June of 1970, Sheriff Patterson radioed Nixon to assist two other deputies who had crashed their car into a tree on the Collinwood estate after witnessing the wraith-like appearance of the vampire Carolyn Stoddard.
Later that evening, Sheriff Patterson and the occultist Professor Timothy Eliot Stokes located Carolyn at the Collinwood stables. Patterson armed all of his deputies with crucifixes and guns loaded with silver bullets. Nixon and the other officers hemmed Carolyn in, giving Stokes the opportunity to drive a stake into her heart, ending her undead existence once and for all.
