The Raising Cane’s restaurant in Kenner where a manager was killed last week during a robbery reopened Wednesday for the first time since the incident.
In a statement, Cane’s spokeswoman Julie Perrault thanked Kenner police investigators for quickly arresting the four suspects alleged to have been involved in the murder of 21-year-old Taylor Friloux, whose funeral was Tuesday.
“As we work to move forward, we are appreciative of the outpouring of support from the community,” said Perrault, whose company arranged to cover Friloux’s funeral expenses. “Now that all suspects are in custody, we are focused on the well-being of our crew, and we will continue to work with Taylor’s family to honor her memory.”
Authorities said two men ambushed Friloux as she and her co-workers were closing down the restaurant in the early hours of June 29. Friloux was stabbed numerous times and died, while the suspects made off with about $1,000.
Police have since booked four suspects in Friloux’s murder: Joshua Every, 23; Mark Crocklen, 24; Gregory Donald, 18; and Ariana Yanni Runner, 22.
Every, a former Cane’s employee from LaPlace, is accused of fatally stabbing Friloux during the course of the heist. Donald, from Kenner, allegedly accompanied Every into the restaurant.
Crocklen, of LaPlace, is accused of acting as the getaway driver. And Runner, from Reserve, is suspected of helping plan the robbery and recruiting Donald to participate in it, though she is not believed to have been present when the crime occurred.
