Son Accused Of Stabbing And Killing Father

The victim was found in his kitchen floor with multiple stab wounds at around midnight.

An investigation into one man’s death has led to the arrest of his son.

Around 2:25p.m. last Thursday, 66-year-old John Stout Jr. became the victim of a stabbing at his home on Leonard Loop in the Socastee area.

Surveillance video captured stout entering his home with his 36-year-old son, Zackery Stout.

Around three minutes after entering, Zackery left the scene in different clothing while the victim is not seen again. He is accused of stabbing his father multiple times resulting in his death.

John was found around midnight on his kitchen floor along with the shirt that Zackery was wearing when he first entered the home with red stains alleged to have tested positive as blood.

Zackery is currently being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center and an investigation is still on-going.
