Family of American accused of killing Anguilla hotel worker says vacation became ‘chilling nightmare’
Authorities in the British territory have accused Scott Hapgood, 44, of killing 27-year-old Kenny Mitchel, a worker at the upscale Malliouhana resort. Hapgood spokeswoman Kelcey Kintner claimed in a previous statement that Mitchel came to Hapgood’s hotel room on April 13, saying that he needed to fix a broken sink, then showed a weapon and demanded money before attacking the Hapgood family.
Thursday’s statement from the family included a photo taken after the alleged attack that showed Hapgood with blood and bruises on his face and chest. The family’s statement said Hapgood “was bitten multiple times by the attacker, including on his face.” The statement also denied that the Hapgood family had ever seen or spoken to Mitchel before he came to the room and denied that they had submitted a maintenance request during their stay.
Sounds and looks like a clear case of self-defense to me. Always the BIG BUTT. How did the worker (the dead one) think he could get away with robbing a hotel guest and not get caught???
