Suffer the Little Children Podcast – Episode 37: Scotty McMillan

First off, I apologize for my lack of blog posts over the past week. This episode took several days to research and write, and Scotty’s story took a lot out of me. I will be resuming regular posting ASAP!

On November 4, 2014, police responded to a trailer home in West Caln Township, Pennsylvania, where they found 3-year-old Scotty McMillan dead on a deflated air mattress, covered with cuts, bruises, and puncture wounds. Scotty’s mother and her boyfriend confessed to spending the days leading up to Scotty’s murder torturing the little boy, beating him with various homemade weapons, tying him up with electric tape, and even hanging him from his feet to beat him, ultimately to death. The trigger for this prolonged, cold-blooded attack was the tiny, defenseless child refusing to eat a piece of toast.

Worse yet, Scotty’s 6-year-old brother, who also lived in the home, was not only abused himself, but had also witnessed and been forced to participate in the torture of his little brother. Three adults were ultimately charged with various offenses related to Scotty’s death.

This is the shocking story of Scotty McMillan.
