Scotty Dwayne McCarter, Jr
Birth: Jun. 9, 1993
Millville
Cumberland County
New Jersey, USA
Death: May 25, 2006
Millville
Cumberland County
New Jersey, USA

Scotty D. McCarter, 12, was fatally shot by his father, Scott McCarter, 40, on May 25, 2006. His father also killed his mother, Wendy Carol Bennett McCarter, 35, and his sister, Melanie Rae, 6, 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.
Scotty was known as a rambunctious, active boy who loved the outdoors and sports. He was a student at Lakeside Middle School. He was so loved by his school, students were given a day off to mourn his loss.
The elementary school Scotty had attended, Mount Pleasant Elementary School, dedicated a tree and a plaque to Scotty and his sister Melanie, who attended school there at the time of her death.
