Fox 13 reporter Shelia O'Connor tweeted out photographs of the damaged walls on Tuesday morning, which included messages about the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed in Louisville while police were serving a no-knock warrant on her home.
"Crews are cleaning up after someone spray-painted the walls of Graceland with messages like 'Defund MPD' 'Arrest Breonna Taylor’s murderers' and 'BLM' and more," she tweeted.
Other messages included, “I Can’t Breathe,” along with calls to defund the police.
The executive director of Levitt Shell spoke with the Memphis Police and said that between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., the property had been defaced.
