The Carnation massacre was a mass murder that occurred on December 24, 2007, near Carnation, Washington, a small rural town 25 miles east of Seattle. The murders took place in the home of Wayne Scott Anderson and Judy Anderson.

Victims

Six people were killed:[1]

  • Wayne Scott Anderson, 60, a Boeing engineer
  • Judy Anderson, 61, postal worker, and wife of Wayne Scott Anderson
  • Scott Anderson, 30, son of Wayne and Judy
  • Erica Anderson, 32, wife of Scott
  • Olivia Anderson, 6-year-old daughter of Scott and Erica
  • Nathan Anderson, 3-year-old son of Scott and Erica

Arrests

Arrested and indicted as the perpetrators of the killings were Michele Kristen Anderson and her boyfriend, Joseph Thomas McEnroe, both aged 29.[2] They were each charged with six counts of first-degree murder.[3] Michelle is the younger sister of Scott and daughter of Wayne and Judy. Investigators have not pinpointed a motive for the slayings, but believe that a dispute over money may have led to the killings. The suspects waived their right to appear in court. Court papers say they have admitted the killing.[4]

Michele fired the first shot at her father, but missed.[5] According to the Seattle Times, if Michele Anderson is convicted, she may become the first woman in Washington State's history to receive the death penalty.[6]

Confession

McEnroe confessed to the murders in January 2014, in an effort to avoid execution.[1]
