President Trump vowed Monday to investigate the case of a Connecticut banker accused of killing a hotel worker during a family vacation in Anguilla.
“Will be looking into the Scott Hapgood case, and the Island of Anguilla. Something looks and sounds very wrong. I know Anguilla will want to see this case be properly and justly resolved!” Trump tweeted — two days after The Post published an exclusive interview with the UBS Investment Bank honcho’s wife.
Hapgood has told authorities he killed the resort worker in self-defense during the family’s trip to the tiny tropical island six months ago, after the man showed up to their hotel room in a drug-fueled craze, whipped out a knife and demanded money.
Hapgood, a 44-year-old dad of three from Darien, was charged with manslaughter and freed on bail, angering some residents on the isle.
His wife, Kallie Hapgood, 44, the managing director of the private-equity firm Gridiron Capital, told The Post, “My husband was defending himself and our two young daughters against somebody who was drunk and high on cocaine and lied to get into our hotel room.
“That gentlemen passed away from the amount of cocaine he had in his system.”
A toxicology report showed that the worker died from a lethal amount of cocaine in his system.
