Three-year-old Victoria Wilcher was seriously injured when she was mauled by three pit bulls in her grandfather's backyard.
Her grandmother said Victoria had just left the hospital when they stopped at KFC to get her mashed potatoes. That's when she claims they were asked to leave because the young girl's face was "disturbing" other customers.
After posting about the incident on Facebook, the anger spread. Social media users began opening fire on the restaurant and calling for a boycott. KFC publicly apologized, donated $30,000 to help pay her medical bills and said the company would investigate the situation.
Now, sources close to the investigation told the newspaper that KFC store security video does not show Wilcher nor her grandmother in the KFC where they said the incident happened. In addition, KFC receipts fail to show the "mashed potatoes and sweet tea" order the family claims.
"When the allegation was first made, KFC pledged $30,000 to go to medical expenses and started an investigation to find the truth," KFC franchisee owner Dick West posted on social media over the weekend. "They have pledged the money even if it is proven that the incident never happened. At this point their story is full of holes. Any thinking person who follows their timeline can see it. The event at KFC never happened."
So far about $135,000 have been raised for Victoria.
