A death threat was sent via email to the Republican Party Victory Center in Santa Rosa Beach.
An anonymous tip was sent to the DeFuniak Springs Herald regarding the threat, which has since been verified with Tim Norris, chairman of the Republican Party in Walton County, and the Walton County Sheriff’s Department.
Administrative Capt. Eddie Farris of the Walton County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that a death threat had been made and “targeted all politicians in general.” Norris more specifically stated it threatened politicians in Washington, not any local candidates.
The threat is currently under investigation by the local authorities and the FBI and authorities. Information is limited at this time, but Capt. Farris stated they would provide more information as soon as it became available.
