Gulf Coast veteran faked death in Alabama to avoid child rape charges

| February 12, 2019

The suspect is currently on the run from authorities.

Jacob Blair Scott, 42, of Moss Point, MS, is suspected of raping his now ex-wife’s daughter, getting her pregnant, then setting up and elaborate scene on his abandoned dinghy to fool authorities into believing he was dead, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Dept. in Mississippi and Orange Beach police in Alabama.

While Scott has not been convicted of any crimes, DNA evidence has confirmed that he is the father of the baby, according to police reports. A grand jury later indicted Scott on 14 different sex charges, including filming the young girl simulating sex acts on him.

The alleged fake suicide last July came just days before Scott, an Iraq war veteran, was due to face the serious charges. Investigators found his dinghy with a suicide note attached and a small-caliber handgun in the water tied to a rope.

Written on the note was Scott’s social security number and details of how to contact his mother. He also wrote “I’m sorry.”

Search and rescue crews from various agencies searched for seven days in the hopes of locating Scott’s body. But investigators became suspicious when no body washed up and there was very little blood or bone/brain fragments on any part of the boat.

We don’t sell coffee to raise money but I would love to help fund this site by finding this scumbag and turning him in.  If you run across this guy call the police …  mention TAH in the reward.

U.S. Marshals are hoping someone recognizes Scott and calls with information.

Metro Denver Crime Stoppers pays up to $2,000 reward for information in criminal cases. Call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867.) You can also text the letters DMCS plus your message to 274637. You don’t have to leave your name and can still be eligible for a cash reward.

    What a piece of shit! Is the reward for DEAD or just barely alive?

    I guess when he is caught (and he will be) his defense will be the PTSD he caught in Iraq.

    • Skyjumper says:


      “His attorney asked for the evaluation because Scott suffered a traumatic brain injury during his service with the U.S. Army. In addition, had post-traumatic stress disorder and often experienced chronic migraine headaches since his return from military service..”

      • Skyjumper says:

        And this……

        “One of the reasons for evaluation was because, the filing said, Scott is easily confused because he has a traumatic brain injury from being hit by an improvised explosive device during his time in combat, suggesting he may not have realized he was having sex with a minor.

        In addition, the filings said, Scott was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, all of which came after his service in U.S. Army between 1996-2007.

        Since he returned from duty, the filings say, Scott has experienced continuous migraine headaches and, as a result of his confusion, he may not have not fully realized the nature of his crimes.”

  2. MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

    A faked suicide in this specific case was only half concocted. He should have planned more.

    Do you DW’s get it?

  3. Wilted Willy says:

    I hope this scumbag is caught and hung by his nuts until Dead!! Why did they wait so long to arrest this cocksucker? Is this asshole supposed to be in the Denver area? I have a lot of friends there in law enforcement that would be glad to help located this walrus fat fuck! I can’t wait until Tiny and the rest of the gang at the deli get to have their way with this scum sucker!
    The internet will find you fucker, welcome to your new Google fame! The internet is forever!!

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    Dax could find him. Dax found a pursuee hiding in the floor insulation in a house. The pursuee is now in jail.

    This creature needs to be found and…. never mind.

  5. 2banana says:

    Not a very good plan…

    “no body washed up and there was very little blood or bone/brain fragments on any part of the boat.”

  6. USAF RET says:

    No brain to fragment…….scumbag

  7. Reaperman says:

    What would the rest of the plan have been? Use a second boat to sail to another country where they’d never look for him? I’m assuming this was probably all done at sea, or in water with access to it.

    Also, why is Metro Denver’s crime stoppers involved?

  8. HMC Ret says:

    Put him in the general population and he’ll soon be cured of whatever ails him. I have zero fucks to give for whatever happens to this scumbag.

    • A Proud Infidel®™️ says:

      I second that, just leave him alone in the showers with Bubba, Thor, Julio and “Tiny Tyrone”!

      That piece of shit is better off dead.

  9. AnotherPat says:

    Here is an interesting 2011 story about him.

    Jacob Blair Scott was a retired SGT (E5) in the Mississippi National Guard Soldier who received serious head wounds and other injuries from an improvised explosive device in September 2003. He served for 13 years:

    “Iraq Soldier Who Initially
    Declined Purple Heart Finally Receives One”:

  10. AW1Ed says:

    ‘Short eyes’ are the lowest of the low on prison food chains. He’ll catch a cold from a shank in his ribs, if let out among the general pop.

    Don’t bother to ask if I care.

  11. Deckie says:

    If he isn’t dead now, he’ll certainly wish he was when he’s caught.

  12. NEC338x says:

    Sadly, even a nice bull shark wouldn’t take a bite out of that piece of CHT.

  13. Duane says:

    I’ve got a better solution before we turn Tiny and Bubba loose on him – lock him in a room with a bunch of legitimate PTSD vets and let them have batting practice with him for claiming that the PTSD made him do his horrendous act. I’m sure we could find enough guys and gals to do some serious attitude adjusting to him.

    Die, mother fucker, die

  15. 1stCavRVN11B says:

    Supposedly this POS has lived in several cites in Michigan and Wisconsin in the past.

    And here is some his supposed Military service record:

    …Specialist in the U.S. Army.
    Scott served his country as a
    member of Bravo Company, 890th
    Engineer Battalion of the
    Mississippi Army National Guard
    during Operation Iraqi freedom as a
    M249 SAW Gunner on the unit’s
    Quick Reaction Force (QRF).
    On the morning of Sept. 29,
    2003, Scott and the members of his
    QRF Team were providing fire support for a convoy traveling from
    TQ Ridgeway to Baghdad
    International Airport when their
    QRF team came under mortar fire
    and an Improvised Explosive
    Device attack…

    …Scott reached the rank of
    Sergeant prior to his separation in
    service, however was at the rank of
    Spc. when he met the criteria for
    the Purple Heart award….

    Reading further he supposedly has/had two daughters and a son.

    Damn this SOB to Hell!

  16. 1stCavRVN11B says:

    There is a video of him speaking on the day he received the PH at Camp Shelby, MS. It must require some video player not on my computer.

  17. Green Thumb says:

    I hope this less-than-a-man winds up in a ditch.

  18. NHSparky says:

    Track him, find him, kill him.

  19. Mike W. says:

    I hope NO matter what, he’s found floating face down in a body of water, bucket, whatever.
    PLUS if he’s caught alive, all that I didn’t know crap is out the window with his planned fake death……..I know, “when he did it he was crazy” is what they’ll say.

  20. Jeffery Monroe says:

    Needs to have his name removed from the Purple heart Association and Military Retirement Role and VA
