The Scott Family Massacre
When Anderson County sheriff’s officers respond to a 911 call on Nov. 2, 2015, they discover the bodies of Mike and Cathy Scott and their elderly mothers sprawled across the blood-soaked floor of their Pendleton, SC home. The brutal quadruple homicide shocks the community and devastates their close-knit families, who can’t imagine who might have killed the quiet well-liked couple and two innocent women in their 80s. Was it a home invasion robbery gone wrong, a random act of violence, or somebody closer to home? Seven years later, the Scott family massacre remains unsolved, and the community fears the killer will strike again.
