Waco dentist mistaken for Waco Twin Peaks operating partner

WACO, TX (KXXV) - A Waco man whose name is similar to the operating partner for the Twin Peaks Waco franchise said he and his family have been receiving messages and harassing calls following Sunday's shooting.

Jayesh Patel is a general dentist who owns the Affordable Dentures practice in Waco, and he has lived in the area for 10 years. Some people are mistaking him for Jay Patel, the operating partner for the Twin Peaks Waco franchise.

Patel explains his name is very common in Indian culture so there may be several people with that name.

Patel, whose biggest concern is his family's well being, said people are making false statements, accusations and name calling him and his family members.

"People have the right to say things but I think when they start accusing people of things that they don't know about or they don't have the facts, I think it's not the right way to go. I know I wasn't raised like that,” said Patel.

Woodway Public Safety Director Yost Zakhary, who has known Jayesh Patel for a while, wants people to vet the information. He said if people want to talk to the owners, they should make sure they have the true owners and have those conversations, if they wish.

"I know who he is. I know what his business is, and I'm sure he has nothing to do with the establishment where this incident occurred,” said Zakhary.

A spokeswoman for the Twin Peaks franchise has confirmed Jayesh Patel is not associated with the business in Waco
