Confederate flag put on property of Gainesville NAACP president

The flag was placed on the lawn of the head of the local NAACP chapter

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The Gainesville Police Department confirmed that they are investigating a situation where a confederate flag was found on the property of Gainesville's NAACP president.

The flag was found on Evelyn Foxx's property but when police got there, it was crumpled and put on the ground by a neighbor, no longer standing as it originally was. 

According to The Gainesville Sun, Foxx had been receiving phone call death threats, but actually having a flag put on her property left her shaken. 

Gainesville Police said they are looking further into the issue and ask that anyone with information call the Gainesville Police Department's Detective Bureau at 352-393-7670.
