I’m certainly no expert when it comes to running a business, but having an owner of one location who was previously arrested for committing fraud and an owner of another location who was convicted of child rape probably isn’t the best recipe for long-term success.
Yesterday, I published a blog about a fatal rollover accident on the property of Boneyard Barbecue & Saloon in Hopkinton, Rhode Island, and the possible involvement of the co-owner, Partyin’ Patrick Kane, in covering up the details. You can read it here.
These are some of the highlights:
“Hopkinton police said 48-year-old Derrick Payne Sr., of Chase Hill Road, suffered fatal injuries while using a 1992 Jeep to four-wheel through the driving range next to the restaurant, located at 15 Frontier Lane, during the early morning hours.”
“According to prosecutors, Kane told police the restaurant’s video surveillance equipment hadn’t been working for six months, though police noticed the equipment had been unplugged.
Maybe if they had been careful in the first place, Derrick Payne Sr. would still be alive and sitting down to dinner with his family tonight.
