FRUITLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) - The ex-wife of one of two central Florida officers who left the Fruitland Park Police Department after a report tied them to the Ku Klux Klan told investigators that she and her husband had joined the group undercover in order to investigate if another police officer was a KKK member.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Tuesday made public parts of the report that led Deputy Chief David Borst to resign and Officer George Hunnewell to be fired last week.
In the report, Ann Hunnewell says she and her ex-husband, George, joined the KKK in 2008 at the request of the police chief to find out if another officer was a KKK member. That officer later resigned.
Ann Hunnewell was a secretary for the department at the time.
