The Systematic Torture of Scott McMillan: a 3-Year-Old Who Was ‘Hung Upside Down and Beaten to Death’

This is truly one of the most horrific and heartbreaking stories we have heard in a very long time.

No child should ever have to suffer like little Scott McMillan did.

Last week, the three-year-old was found unresponsive in his Chester County, Pennsylvania, home.

According to The Patriot-News, the boy’s mother, Jillian Tait, 31, and Gary Fellenbaum, 23, viciously abused him until he died from his injuries. Authorities confirm the couple hung him upside down from his feet and beat him with a homemade whip made of metal during three days of torture. His frail body was covered in cuts, bruises and puncture wounds. And that’s only the beginning.

“This is just evilness,” said Chester Country District Attorney Thomas Hogan. “It is an unspeakable act of depravity.”

Both were charged Thursday with the gruesome murder of this poor boy.
