Popeyes is a ratchet mess!First they bring this messy a$$ sandwich on the market for only a few weeks, to sell out the sandwich. Then, they decide to bring it back, and someone gets murdered over a dispute for cutting the line.
A man in an Upper Marlboro, MD popeyes franchise had cut the line and was stabbed to death on Tuesday. His name was Kevin Tyrell Davis. He was rushed to the hospital but was pronounced dead within an hour.
Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski appealed for the public’s assistance in catching the killer who fatally stabbed the 28 year old man and is currently on the run. The suspect stabbed the victim once after their argument ensued outside of the restaurant.
Marketing the sandwich has built a ubiquitous buzz causing long lines at the fast food chain. Stawinski said dozens of people were at the restaurant at the time of the murder.
“The question my detectives have to answer is, ‘How does a confrontation lead to a homicide in 15 seconds?”
“The family of the individual who was killed is looking for closure. The families and children who were in this restaurant are looking for closure”. A statement from Popeyes said the fast food chain and it’s Ocon Hill franchisee are cooperating with authorities and “actively working to gather more information”. There is a growing memorial at the scene of the incident. Davis was known as K.D.
There is a GoFundMe page set up to help Davis’s family with funeral arrangements. “KD was the light and heart of this family and friends, with a smile as bright as the sun”, the page reads. “At any moment, he would have anyone laughing with his numerous jokes. He thoroughly enjoyed life and lived every day to its fullest. He truly lived his ‘bet life’. He enjoyed creating music and the company of his community. KD will be dearly missed by all those who had the honor of knowing him”.
