45-year-old Jacob Blair Scott used to be at the top of his game, being an inspiration to many who are looking to serve the country…and then his crimes were exposed. When this happened, he faked his death to try to escape the inevitability of him being in prison.

Scott faked his own death off Orange Beach, Alabama, coast to avoid these charges. The investigators found a small boat with a gun and a note, and the forensic evidence confirmed that it was a suicide note from Scott.

However, US Marshals still pursued their search for Scott to confirm his death, but no body was found throughout their investigation. In addition, they were skeptical about the timing of the suicide since this happened when he was out on bond and was called out for a court hearing, according to NY Post.

Another thing that’s curious about his suicide was the fact that he withdrew $45,000 from his account before the alleged “death” happened. Additionally, he was already on the 15 Most Wanted Fugitive List since January 2022.

In January 2020, US Marshalls caught up to Scott in Antlers, Oklahoma living under the assumed name of Lucas Walding.

Later on, Scott was found by authorities in late 2020 in an RV Park living under a different name.

Defamed Army Veteran

Scott was an Army Vet now convicted on multiple criminal charges, including child rape, and has now been sentenced to 85 years in prison. For his charge, the victim, who was his stepdaughter, testified that she was abused roughly about thirty times from 2016 to 2017.
