Darien man accused in hotel worker’s death files suit against Anguillan resort

Posted: Updated:

The Darien businessman charged with manslaughter in the death of an Anguillan resort employee has filed a lawsuit against the hotel chain.

Scott Hapgood alleges the hotel was negligent in the hiring and supervision of Kenny Mitchel, the man he is accused of killing after he says he was attacked.

Mitchel died on April 13, 2019 after a confrontation with Hapgood in a room at the resort.

Hapgood is considered a "fugitive" by Anguillan authorities after he declined to appear on the island in November to address the manslaughter charge.

Hapgood is also being sued by Mitchel's estate.
