KFC: No proof employee asked scarred girl to leave

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/natio.../11322523/

JACKSON, Miss. — In the wake of reports that a KFC employee asked the family of a 3-year-old girl scarred by a pit bull attack to leave the restaurant because her injuries disturbed customers, the fried chicken chain said two different investigations have not found any evidence of those allegations.

KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said Tuesday the company considers the matter closed after an internal investigation by the franchise restaurant in Jackson, Miss., and an independent probe. Maynard said the company would honor its commitment to donate $30,000 to help with medical bills for Victoria Wilcher.

KFC hired an outside investigator because it was concerned that the Jackson, Miss., restaurant's internal investigation couldn't verify the incident, Maynard said.

"Like the rest of America, the KFC family has been moved by the story of Victoria's injuries and recovery," said Maynard. "We hope everyone keeps Victoria in their thoughts and prayers. She will certainly be in ours."

The attorney for Victoria's family disputes the findings.

"It is unfortunate that Victoria and her family are being vilified on what appears to be the result of an inconclusive investigation conducted by KFC and/or its agents that implies Victoria's story is a "hoax," said William Kellum of Jackson, the attorney for Victoria's family. "It is deeply disappointing that other parties have taken opportunity to attack Victoria through social and news media outlets. Victoria is an innocent child with very real physical and emotional scars. The focus of her family has always been, and will always be on Victoria and making her whole again.

On Tuesday, the owner of the KFC franchise that runs the restaurant said a review of video surveillance found no evidence to corroborate the allegation.

Hannon Food Services issued a statement to WAPT-TV in Jackson, Miss., on Tuesday that said hundreds of hours were spent reviewing the video surveillance at the KFC restaurant and all of the employees at that location were interviewed.

"As of today, neither Hannon Food Services nor the outside firm involved in the consultation has found any evidence to verify that the incident took place at our restaurant on Woodrow Wilson Drive. Nevertheless, we'll continue to exhaust every possible avenue until we're absolutely sure we have all the facts," the statement read.

Company officials said they would like to meet with Victoria's family "so they can provide us with any additional information they would like for us to be aware of," according to WAPT.

In his statement, Kellum said the family "appreciates the actions of KFC in their investigation of this matter. They look forward to assisting KFC in what we hope will be an ongoing investigation."

But he said Kelly Mullins, Victoria's grandmother, "maintains that her description of the events that occurred at a Jackson KFC regarding Victoria are true and accurate."

KFC probes whether scarred girl asked to leave
Allegations that the child was asked to leave the restaurant were made earlier this month on the Facebook site Victoria's Victories, which has followed the child's recovery from the April attack. KFC posted an apology the next morning and asked for more details about what happened.

Mullins told WAPT-TV that the child had just been to a doctor and stopped at the restaurant. After they ordered, an employee approached, she said.

"They just told us, they said, 'We have to ask you to leave because her face is disrupting our customers,' " Mullins told the TV station.

Earlier Tuesday, Kellum, took to task a community newspaper in Laurel, Miss., for reporting "unsubstantiated allegations made by an anonymous source" that the story about the scarred little girl being asked to leave a KFC is a "hoax."

Teri Rials Bates, the child's aunt, runs the Victoria's Victories Facebook page.

"I promise it's not a hoax, I never thought any of this would blow up the way it has," a post said early Tuesday. "I have personally watched this family go without to provide for Victoria. They have not and would not do anything to hurt Victoria in any way."

In her posts, Bates said the child was attacked by three pit bulls while visiting her grandfather at his home in Simpson County south of Jackson in April. Since then, she has undergone reconstructive surgery, Bates said.

Now that I've read this i'd like another investigation, reminds me of the Wendy's chili in a finger scam (the woman in the case got caught and sent to prison, and the store that was accused had to close eventually because of the negative coverage...).

I'd like the parents to point out the employee who made the remarks and the case can be closed???!!! But after an internal investigation and two KFC corporate ones (including an outside investigator) no proof can be found???!!!
anything to get people not to pay attention to the current IRS scandal.

deflection as always.

these things should be news, but only on the back page.

the IRS scandal should be ALL OVER the airwaves.

And don't forget the state tax collectors...the state I'm in has the California Franchise Tax Board, and I know they've got to have done many many bad things, including incompetency, etc...
the tax collection agencies are a way to have veto power over groups/businesses that don't tow the conspiratorial line.

it's just amazing how a lot of these stories are overshadowing LEGIT topics the whole country should be worried about.

I guess this is what they mean by supporting a "free press"
At least this 4-year old child has the wherewithal to tell the God's honest truth???!!!

Kevin McCallister of Home Alone fame meet Abby Dean from Washington, Wisc. Like you, this 4-year-old girl knows how to help catch burglars. The plot line Dean was involved in is a little different from the one in your Hollywood blockbuster, but she sure foiled the crime.

Earlier this month, Abby was at home with her 17-year-old babysitter when two young men broke into the house and asked the girls to leave so they could search for valuables. The crooks took off with an iPod, Wii, Xbox and even Abby’s kitty bank.

The babysitter told police that the burglars were African American and one looked like the next-door neighbor. The investigators immediately went next door where they put Cody Oaks in hand-cuffs and took him away for questioning.

When police checked in with Abby, she was adamant that the robbers were white, not black.

The babysitter’s story started to look fishy and eventually she caved and told the truth.

The burglars were her 16-year-old boyfriend and his friend and the three worked together to rob the Dean household.

“Literally in 30 seconds she changed everything that had been going on for 5 to 6 hours,” Abby’s mom, Jennifer Dean, told Fox News.

Abby got her bank back and the other items were returned as well.

“They got it back because of me being the superhero,” Abby told Fox News.
^ LOL.

people have to hire a babysitter in teh NWO world because women can't afford to not work to take care of the kids.

the kids are often put at risk in these situations.
NOW this really happened at McD's???!!!
