    This story is a good example of why "breaking news" stories need to be validated/verified before one draws a conclusion. It seems reporters are rushing to grab a headline or sound bite. The heck with verify facts.

    Like someone else said, the investigation is still on going.

    Re: KFC accused of kicking out girl, 3, scarred in pit bull attack By Ralph Ellis and

    KFC had 2 investigations that both showed this never happened.


    KFC: No Proof Worker Asked Scarred Child to Leave - ABC News


    Fried chicken chain KFC said two different investigations have not found any evidence that an employee asked a 3-year-old girl and family members to leave because injuries she suffered in a pit bull mauling disturbed customers.

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

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

    Allegations that Victoria was asked to leave the restaurant were made earlier this month on the Facebook site Victoria's Victories, which has followed her recovery from the April attack.

    In a statement, Hannon Food Services, which operates the restaurant, said the company was deeply troubled by the allegation.

    As part of its investigation, Hannon said it spent hundreds of hours reviewing surveillance video, interviewing employees and hired the outside investigator. The company said it would reach out to the child's family for additional discussions.

    Jackson attorney Bill Kellum, in a statement Tuesday afternoon on behalf of the child's family, said Victoria's grandmother, Kelly Mullins, stands by her claim of what happened at the restaurant.

    "Victoria's 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," he said.

    "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," Kellum said.

    He said the child's family is grateful for outpouring of concern for her.

    After the initial allegation, KFC posted an apology the next morning and asked for more details about what happened.

    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."

    No one responded to a message sent through the Facebook page.

    Earlier, the child's grandmother, Kelly Mullins, told Jackson television station 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.

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

    So grandma is sticking by her story. I wonder how far she'll take this.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Granny took the Facebook page down yesterday, and GoFundMe announced they were suspending the donations page pending an investigation. Last I heard the GoFundMe page had over $135,000 in donations.

But if it is a hoax by the family to garner money, that is awful as well, and the adults in the matter should be held accountable. The only thing that we can really say is that KFC shouldn't be held accountable for this because they didn't do it and have been working their butts off since this story first surfaced to check it out and help the family.
    The problem is that the original story was so full of holes including they said it occurred at a KFC franchise that had been closed for years. There were no witnesses to this act and the grandmother and child are not found in any of their store cam videos.
    This is probably as much information one is going to receive on this incident and one may have to make their conclusion from that. This is no different than on the tv series COPS when an officer approaches a suspect and the suspect throws such a tall tale of an alibi the officer has to make a conclusion on whether he thinks he is lying or not.

    This story is so unbelievable that I can't believe anyone was that naive to believe it in the first place. Surely there would have been witnesses to this incident if customers were complaining about this little girl and a KFC employee escorting them out............................................. REALLY?

    Even the claim of which KFC store this allegedly happened at was wrong; that store had been closed for years. The aunt then said that she was the one who goofed rather than grandma. So dumb.

    Venal too, of course, but you'd think these grifters would have checked out this particular "detail."

    All of which came out prior to the investigation. But there are people who would do this. I don't think it is common at all, but it can happen. Just because most people wouldn't do it, doesn't mean it couldn't happen.

    As for the store cam videos, that was not official information until yesterday. The post you just quoted was made prior to KFC saying that (not that they actually did). It was based on an anonymous source, which is just as bad as taking the grandmother's word on it.

    Plus, this is why time is required rather than calling people naive. Witnesses are not going to spring up automatically if something like this took place. It wasn't unbelievable because things like this have happened before. Perhaps not with a disfigured little girl, but other things that many would think should appall people, but very few are willing to say something about.

    Even though the story was confirmed as being a hoax, KFC announced that they're still honoring their pledge of $30,000 towards this little girl's medical bills.

    Someone remember this the next time there is screaming and yelling about evil corporations.
