Lowell Hawthorne, the founder and CEO of the Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill, most famous for its Jamaican beef patties, has died of an apparent suicide, according to law enforcement. He was 57 years old.  Hawthorne reportedly shot himself inside of his Bronx, N.Y., factory about 5:30 pm on Saturday.

Lowell Hawthorne migrated to the United States from Jamaica and opened the first Golden Krust store in the Bronx in 1989. Hawthorne, his wife Lorna, four of his siblings and their spouses, reportedly pooled their money to get the store off the ground.  Golden Krust operated or franchised 120 locations in nine states.
