Melanie Rae McCarter
Birth: Dec. 1, 1999
Millville
Cumberland County
New Jersey, USA
Death: May 25, 2006
Millville
Cumberland County
New Jersey, USA

Melanie Rae McCarter, 6, was fatally shot by her father, Scott McCarter, 40, on May 25, 2006. Her father also killed her mother, Wendy Carol Bennett McCarter, 35, and her brother, Scotty D., 12, before turning the gun on himself.
At the time of the murders, McCarter was on trial on charges of molesting his teenaged stepdaughter (Wendy's daughter) and the girl's best friend. The bodies of the family were found the morning McCarter was supposed to take the stand in his own defense. Wendy's family found out about the murders as they waited in the courtroom for his trial to resume. Melanie was known as the blond moppet of the neighborhood, always following her mother around. She loved Sponge Bob Squarepants. Her favorite song, "Who Let the Dogs Out?" was played at her funeral.
Her school, Mount Pleasant Elementary School in Millville, NJ, dedicated a tree, with a plaque underneath, to both Melanie and her brother Scotty, who also had attended Mount Pleasant.
