MOUNT PLEASANT, SC – Police have charged a man with the beating deaths of his grandparents, aunt, and his 15-year-old cousin.

Police have charged 22-year-old Lovequawn Scott four counts of murder after his grandfather, Joseph Manigault, 72; his grandmother, Rose Manigault, 69; his aunt, Kenya Manigault, 42; and his cousin, Faith Manigault, 15, were all found dead inside a home on Saturday.

Police were called to the home after a relative found the bloody bodies of Joseph and another female inside the garage.

Officers took Scott into custody after finding him outside the home with blood on his hands and clothing.

Once inside the home, officers found the dead bodies of two females in a bedroom. The coroner’s office stated all of the victims appeared to have been beaten to death, but they’ve ordered autopsies to get more information.

Relatives said they have no idea what would have led Scott to kill members of his own family, especially his grandparents.

According to relatives, Scott’s grandparents had raised him and put him through college at both The Citadel and Coastal Carolina University.

But his time at both colleges was cut short due to arrests for alleged drug violations and property crimes.

“They took that boy from a baby, a few days after he was born and they raised him,” said Joseph Manigault’s sister. “And he had the nerve to do something to some good people like them. What he did a dog or a cat doesn’t deserve it.”

According to the Post Courier, this is the worst case of domestic violence in nearly 12 years in the Lowcountry.
