Unhappy 'Supernanny' Father Dies From Gunshot

Link


GEORGETOWN — A Georgetown man struggled for years, battling a painful spine injury and fighting to obtain Social Security benefits. He even reached out to a television reality show, hoping to be a better dad to his two sons.


Friday night, his struggle ended in a Georgetown cemetery. Scott Terrill died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest after a 90-minute standoff with police.


Terrill carried ”a lot of emotional baggage from the past,“ said Dwayne Russell, pastor of Safe Harbor Baptist Fellowship in Georgetown, who will officiate at his funeral.


Despite those trials, Terrill was a dedicated father, Russell said. His appearance on a Supernanny episode that first aired in January showed his ”desire to be a better dad.“


Terrill, 37, suffered from reflex sympathetic dystrophy since an accident about five years ago, said his mother, Margaret Ng.


The disorder causes sufferers to feel continuous, intense pain out of proportion to the severity of the injury, which gets worse rather than better over time. There is no cure.


Terrill had tried getting a job to work from home, but he could only sit up only a certain amount of hours of the day, Ng said.


”It might not have looked like it on the TV, but he could not get up for more than a couple hours a day because of the RSD,“ she said.


The Supernanny episode featuring Terrill first aired on Jan. 23. Terrill said he had struggled to set boundaries for his sons, Lane and Tate, who were 11 and 5 at the time, because of his own harsh childhood.


In an attempt to avoid repeating the past, Terrill went to the other extreme, where he could not set discipline in his home.


Terrill later became the mascot for the show's ”Foxy Dad of the Year“ competition.


Ng said Terrill went camping with his sons and was also involved with his eldest son's soccer and his children's schooling.


”He was a loving father with a big heart,“ Ng said.


On Friday, Terrill called Georgetown police about 6:50 p.m., Capt. Scott Starns said Monday. He told police he was thinking of killing himself and had a gun.


Terrill asked to speak to Police Chief Greg Reeves, and told him he was at his father's grave at the Georgetown Cemetery.


Officers went to the cemetery, blocking off the scene and evacuating some of the houses nearby.


As he talked to officers, Terrill had a .38-caliber handgun pressed to his chest the whole time, Starns said.


”About an hour and a half into this whole scenario, they thought progress was being made, and he just abruptly squeezed the trigger,“ Starns said.


Scott County Coroner John Goble pronounced Terrill dead at Georgetown Community Hospital about 9 p.m.


Terrill grew up in Georgetown and attended Lexington Catholic High School, where he played basketball. He obtained his GED and went to one year of college at Morehead State University, Ng said.


In 2002 he ran in the Republican primary for a state House seat against Charlie Hoffman, but lost.


At Safe Harbor Baptist Fellowship, Russell said he had not seen or spoken to Terrill in six or seven months. But he said Terrill, a likeable guy who had been active in the church, had remained in contact with other church members.


Terrill's death has greatly affected his congregation, Russell said. Many watched Terrill grow up, and church members have helped take care of his children.


”People who are struggling with those emotional struggles, they need to get connected with other people,“ he said. ”Not one of us as human beings could handle the stresses and struggles of life by ourselves.“


A graveside service will be 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at the Georgetown Cemetery. Visitation will be 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Tucker, Yocum & Wilson Funeral Home.

Why are you so obsessed with posting death notices of everybody under the sun? It gets a bit morbid sometimes. Especially, when the same person does it over and over again.

I watch SUPERNANNY, but I did not know of this news. So awful. That man really suffered through immense pain. He tried his best to be a great father in spite of that pain. I hope he finds comfort and peace now.

After all this time it suddenly becomes morbid? I know I post alot of obits but why all of a sudden now is it a problem for you? I'm not aware of any rule around here that gives anyone exclusive rights to start certain threads and that includes myself.

Alot of these people I post obits for Pav includes in his blog but evidently you have no issue with that. It's no more morbid for an obit to be posted on the board than it is there. Your problem isn't with the obits themselves but the fact that I'm posting them.

Alot of these passings would probably never be acknowledged if it weren't for me. I don't mean the really big names like Charlton Heston and James Brown but the lesser-known names like Henry Beckman, Lilyan Chauvin, Bill Dial, Bob LeMond etc...and all these were included in Pav's blog.

I sincerely apologize to you or anyone else here who may have been offended by my threads but most of these obits would've been posted sooner or later by someone else if I hadn't done so.

By the way, When I started the thread about Patricia Heaton's Father you had no problem with that so which is it? The obits themselves, The people I'm posting obits for or the fact that I'm the one doing the posting?

It doesn't matter because I'm no longer going to start any obituary threads and as a matter of fact, I'm not going to start any threads period because I'm now leaving the board. I might as well do so because I'm reasonably sure that TJ will see this and tell me to cease and desist with these threads so I'll just save him the trouble.

Zoneboy, you are very welcome to post here. I and many others find the passing posts very helpful. There are times where I completely overlook some passings and thanks to you, I know about them (I'm too into schedules and stuff). I agree, especially the lesser name stars like Lilyan Chauvin and Bill Dial would have been missed if not for you. It's not like these stories are fake...they are the truth.

TJ will not order you to cease and desist, I can tell you that for a fact. So please stay. You're doing a great job, I think.

Brian, I have absolutely nothing against you personally and I've decided to stay rather than let the opinion of one person run me off. If you really have a problem with the obit threads then maybe you need to put me on ignore.

If I read or hear of any death, I try and post it here, but you always seem to beat me to it Charles. I think it is newsworthy to post such information. It is not gossip or lies, it is someone's death.

You have posted many times on the death of a celeb who may not have been very well known or they are now obscure, but nonetheless, I like your threads and it is news.

Just like Scoobiedoo aka Aaron informs us of a celebs birthdays, it is equally appreciated to read abt a celebrity death. It is sad news, but it is appreciated.
