Reward Offered In Pendleton Quadruple Murder

CRIME STOPPERS say a reward is being offered in the quadruple murder in Pendleton.

They say they have not received a lot of call or tips regarding the murder.

They are asking that anyone with information call them at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

The Anderson Co. Sheriff’s Office says they were called to a home on Refuge Drive in Pendleton.

They say when they got there they found the bodies of four people.

The victims have been identified as:

Mike Scott, 59

Cathy Scott, 60

Barbara Scott, 80, Mike’s mother.

Violet Taylor 82, Cathy’s mother.

They say all four lived at the home.

Autopsies show all four victims were shot to death.

They say one of the victims had multiple gunshot wounds.

Three of the victims were found in the den.

Mike Scott was found in the bedroom.

Investigators say it appears they were surprised by the attack and had no time to defend themselves.

The coroner says Mike Scott had texted a co-worker at the South Carolina Dept. of Transportation in Anderson stating he would be in on Monday.

Investigators will be going over the text messages to determine the time frame since they believe that is the last person he spoke with.

Cathy Scott was a stay-at-home caretaker for the couple’s two mothers.

They are currently investigating the incident as a quadruple murder.

Forensic investigators are on the scene searching for additional evidence.
