KFC: No proof worker asked scarred child to leave
JACKSON, MS - Fried chicken chain KFC says two different investigations have not found any evidence that an employee asked a 3-year-old girl and her family to leave because injuries she suffered in a pit bull mauling disturbed customers.
KFC spokesman Rick Maynard said Tuesday the company considers the matter closed. He says an investigation by the franchise restaurant in Mississippi and an independent probe were done.
Attorney Bill Kellum, who represents the family of Victoria Wilcher, said a statement would be issued later Tuesday.
Maynard says KFC is still donating $30,000 to help with Victoria's medical bills.
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.
