Third suspect arrested in the murder of Raising Cane's manager

KENNER, LA (WVUE) - A third suspect has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Raising Cane's restaurant manager in Kenner.

Police have arrested Gregory Donald, Jr., 18, of Kenner.

Kenner Police Chief Michael Glaser said Donald has confessed to his role in the crime.

Taylor Friloux, 21, was the manager on duty around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning when the robbery occurred. She was stabbed to death.

Donald is charged with first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping, criminal conspiracy to commit armed robbery, aggravated burglary, three counts of armed robbery, and aggravated assault.

A break leading to the arrest came after announcing the arrest of the second suspect, 24-year-old Mark J. Crocklen, at a Thursday press conference. St. John deputies alerted Kenner authorities that the getaway vehicle, a 2001 Toyota Highlander, was registered to an address on Vouray Drive in Kenner.

Kenner police staked out the area and stopped Donald driving the SUV. They seized the SUV and took Donald into custody.

Donald told police he was driving the Highlander on the morning of the murder.

Once in custody, Donald maintained he was the driver of the getaway vehicle. But when confronted with inconsistencies in his story, Donald confessed to being the second person to enter the Raising Cane's restaurant with Joshua Every during the robbery and murder.

Donald told police he was recruited to take part by a female and helped plan the robbery. He told police he was armed with a box cutter and Every was carrying a knife when they entered the restaurant.

After the robbery Donald said Every "stabbed that girl" and the Every returned to the getaway vehicle saying he thought "he killed that girl."

Donald, along with Joshua Every, is a former employee of the Raising Cane's restaurant located in the 330 block of Williams Boulevard.
