A Connecticut banker accused of killing a hotel worker in the Caribbean four months ago is speaking out about the incident for the first time.
Malliouhana resort employee Kenny Mitchel, 27, died on April 13 after he allegedly broke into the hotel room of UBS banker Scott Hapgood, 44, and the pair became embroiled in a violent altercation.
Mitchel's death was initially listed as asphyxiation and blunt force trauma to the head, leading Hapgood to be charged with manslaughter.
But a revised report dated September 3, and obtained by The New York Times this week, claims that Mitchell may actually have died from a drug overdose.
A GoFundMe page seeking donations to the family raised more than $250,000 before the site pulled it down last week, the Darien Times reported. It is against the site’s policy to allow raising money for a defendant accused of a violent crime.
