(PCM) We recently brought you the absolutely heartbreaking story about 3-year old Victoria Welcher who was allegedly kicked out of a Jackson, MS KFC restaurant by an employee who said the young girls scars were scaring the other customers.
Victoria was attacked by three pit bulls at her grandfather’s home back in April and was left with extreme facial scarring and the loss of one of her eyes.
Since this story has been circulating the net, KFC has pledged to investigate the incident and promised to donate $30,000 towards Victoria’s medical bills as a way to apologize. KFC is not the only one donating funds to little Victoria. People from all over the world have been donating money to the family and several plastic surgeons have stepped up to offer free services to assist Victoria in the future.
Now, several sources have come forward, who wish to remain anonymous due to the on-going investigation into the initial incident, claiming that the entire story about being kicked out of the KFC is an elaborate hoax and Victoria’s family is making out with a nice pay day to the tune of over $130,000, which is the amount of donations already received.
KFC needed to verify that the incident actually did take place, so they hired a private investigator. The investigator has since reported that there is absolutely no video surveillance footage that show’s Victoria and her grandmother inside the fast-food restaurant and there is no record of their food order.
Another part of the story that doesn’t add up is that Victoria’s grandmother claims they visited the KFC location after a doctor’s appointment to grab some food on the day the story was posted on Facebook, which was May 15th. However, records show that Victoria did not visit the doctor until May 16th which would have been one day after the alleged incident occurred.
Also, the location of the KFC restaurant that was initially reported by the family is a location that has been closed for several years. Victoria’s aunt later commented that due to the hoopla surrounding the incident she accidentally named the wrong location by mistake.
Suspicions began to arise when several sources began contacting the media and claiming that Victoria’s grandmother’s story didn’t really add up correctly. Since the story ran, employees at the two KFC locations closest to the hospital where Victoria is being treated are fearing for their safely as they have received death threats and been verbally harassed.
KFC claims that they will still donate the $30,000 to assist with Victoria’s medical bills even if the investigation turns out to prove the story false and Victoria’s family is still sticking by their story that the incident did indeed occur and made sure to note that the investigation is still being completed.
