Another restaurant with a gruesome past. Three people were murdered in the back freezer in November 1995, and employees swear strange things still happen back there.
Details of the original crime from the Naples News:
Jennings and his accomplice, Charles Jason Graves, now 33, were each convicted of three counts of capital first degree murder and one count of robbery in the killings of Dorothy Siddle, 38, of Golden Gate; Vicki Smith, 27, of Copeland; and Jason Wiggins, 21, of East Naples during an early morning holdup at the restaurant on Collier Boulevard near Interstate 75.
Both former Cracker Barrel employees, Jennings and Graves tied up their three victims and placed them in a freezer on Nov. 15, 1995. Jennings, the state proved, then repeatedly slashed the throats of the victims, while Graves stood at the freezer door with a pellet gun to prevent their escape. They had planned the crime more than a month ahead of time, hoping to snatch up to $15,000 in a simple parking lot robbery.
