According to the arrest warrant, Melinda Pleskovic was supposed to meet her husband and Scullin at Applebee's that night but they were unable to get in contact with her. [NOTE: The original police report said they were supposed to meet at Brew Kettle.]
Scullin and Melinda's husband, Bruce, came home at 8 p.m. The garage door was not working and the front door was locked. The teenage son of Melinda and Bruce let them into the home. According to court records, the teen is non-verbal.
Scullin was one of the people who called 911 that night. He said Melinda had been "attacked."
Listen to a portion of that 911 call above.
Surveillance video from Applebee's — where Scullin's fiancée worked — showed Bruce and Scullin were at the restaurant for dinner, as they told investigators they were. His fiancée — Bruce and Melinda's daughter — was working that night.
A family friend tells News 5 Scullin and his fiancée were supposed to get married last weekend. Instead, the family attended Melinda's funeral, where Scullin was a pallbearer.
The vehicles that were at the Blazing Star Drive home where Melinda was found dead were towed for evidence on Oct. 23.
One of those vehicles was a 2002 Chevy pickup truck registered to Scullin's father. Court records show Scullin admitted to sometimes driving that vehicle and said he drove it that day.
A large tactical knife was found on the back seat of the truck. Police said the knife had Melinda's blood on it. DNA belonging to Scullin was on the handle, according to court records.
The complaint shows that during the offense, Scullin had a firearm, "displayed the firearm, brandished the firearm, indicated that he possessed the firearm, or used it to facilitate the offense." Court records show he had a .357 revolver.
The making false alarms charge stems from an incident on Oct. 19 when he called 911 to report a break-in. The complaint states that break-in never happened.
